How Do You Decorate a Christmas Tree With Baubles?
After finding your perfect tree, the next step in elevating your celebrations is to decide on a theme. Are you going for a rustic and traditional display? Look for bauble sets that effortlessly blend neutrals with shades of red, green, and gold. Decorating a tree with frosted foliage? Complete your winter wonderland theme with glistening glass baubles and matching metallic accents.
Make sure to consider your display area before you start decorating. For instance, if you’re short on space, we recommend choosing Christmas trees under 6 feet and mini bauble sets.
What Should You Consider When Buying Christmas Bauble Sets?
1. Christmas Tree Size
Find the ideal ratio between the number of baubles and the size of your Christmas tree. That’s the key to having a polished festive display. Aside from the number of decorations used, make sure that the size of your trimmings is proportional to your Christmas tree’s height. Here are our recommendations to help you determine the number of bauble sets that you need:
- For 6.5-foot trees, you need 70 pieces of 4- to 8.75-inch baubles for light coverage and 105 pieces for heavy coverage.
- For 7.5-foot trees, you need 105 pieces of 4- to 8.75-inch baubles for light coverage and 140 pieces for heavy coverage.
- For 9- to 10-foot trees, you need 175 pieces of 4- to 8.75-inch baubles for light coverage and 210 pieces for heavy coverage.
2. Christmas Tree Shape
When shopping for Christmas decoration sets, keep the shape of your tree in mind. Full trees have a wide silhouette and lush, sturdy branches that can support several baubles of different sizes. Some trees are sparse by design and leave more room for bigger baubles to stand out. For slim trees, we recommend a lighter coverage to avoid overwhelming their slender profile. Another option is the flatback tree, which lets you achieve a full look with fewer decorations. This unique tree shape rests flat against a wall and cuts the number of baubles you need by half.
Baubles for Christmas trees can be used more than once even if you choose different themes every year. Combine various decorations or add new accents to give your display a refreshed look, season after season. Many bauble sets can also be repurposed. Place them in a bowl to make a festive centrepiece or shelf décor. Use them to decorate wreaths and garlands, too.
How Do You Store Christmas Tree Baubles?
Give your seasonal decorations the same love and care you show your artificial Christmas tree. When putting away baubles and other tree trimmings for safekeeping, carefully place them in Balsam Hill®’s storage boxes with compartments. These are specially developed to keep decorations in good condition until the next year. Make sure to place those boxes in a clean, dry storage area to protect them from the elements.
