The day that you decorate the Christmas tree at your house is the day that the holidays have officially begun. Homeowners who love the holidays are always looking for new Christmas tree decorating ideas to implement. You might want your Christmas tree to have a special meaning, whether it’s to celebrate the beauty of the holiday season or to celebrate the blessings you’ve received throughout the year. Maybe you want your tree to be reflective of your new home in the city of Philadelphia. Or you might just want a unique idea for your tree that will really capture the attention of your holiday guests. Whatever you have in mind, these ideas for your Christmas tree will help inspire you.

Silver (Liberty) Bells

If you want to pay homage to the city where you now live, feature one of the most iconic symbols that Philadelphia is known for on your tree: The Liberty Bell. Purchase a quality metal replica of the bell to hang from the top of your tree in place of the usual star or angel. Next, hang sparkling medium-sized red, white, and blue snowflake stars from the rest of the tree. Finally, finish the tree’s “liberating” decor by adding small silver bells throughout to complement the larger bell featured at the top. Spritz the tree lightly with a silver glitter shimmer spray to make it really shine.

Tiny Presents from the Tree

It’s traditional to fill the bottom of your Christmas tree with presents — it symbolizes abundance and the spirit of sharing. Instead of just putting presents under the tree this year, why not hang a few from the tree as well? Wrap tiny, meaningful gifts in small, shiny, decorative boxes and hang each one from a gold ribbon. Tell each guest to choose a tiny box the night before Christmas as a preview for the big day. This is a great way to decorate your tree in a way that celebrates your blessings and your love of gift-giving.

Silver and Gold

Silver is often used interchangeably with gold in decor, but have you ever tried pairing silver and gold together? For a really eye-catching Christmas tree this year, spray paint it from top to bottom in silver, allow it to dry, and then garnish it with gold accents. Use gold-tinted bows, ball ornaments, and tinsel for decoration. Add a beautiful gold star at the top of the tree for the perfect final touch.

As November changes into December, it’s important to remember the many reasons for the season. Decorating for the holidays should be fun, inspiring, and unique — not at all like a chore. Let these Christmas tree decorating ideas get your creative juices flowing. Try something different with your tree this year that will really make it the main attraction at your Philly home throughout the holiday season.
