Top Tips For Decorating Your Christmas Tree

Here are some top tips for decorating your Christmas tree!

Ornament to tree ratio
For the perfect tree to ornament ratio, divide the height of tree in centimetres by 2.66. Using this ratio, The Langham Sydney needs a whopping 150 ornaments for its four metre high tree!

Red, green, and… blue!

Red and green are the traditional Christmas colours, but silver and blue can be used to create a ‘white Christmas’ theme down under. Even better – use ornaments with snowflake motifs!The Langham, Sydney sources their decorations from Wedgwood for a classic Christmas look.

Tinsel town
Since growing in popularity in the 1950’s and 1960’s, tinsel has been a mainstay of the average Christmas tree. Try substituting the big, fluffy lengths for something more delicate or nothing at all for a more modern look.

Tying it all together
Most of us accumulate our decorations over the years, leaving us with a random assortment of odd shapes and colours! Create a cohesive look by tying your Christmas decorations onto the tree with ribbon. Tip: Buy an extra-long roll to ensure you have enough for the entire tree.
