How to personalise your Christmas tree

It’s November, and we can already start to feel that the Christmas season has started.

Festive songs are playing on the radio, tinsel and lights are hanging from shop windows and doorposts, and smells of freshly baked Christmas puddings and mince pies are in the air. 

Now that we have a month to go, the clock is ticking and it’s time to prepare ourselves for the big day that we have been waiting for since last December. Which gifts shall we buy? What new recipes shall we try? How shall we decorate our tree?

When it comes to Christmas tree decorating, it is no easy feat, especially for the perfectionists amongst us. With growing trends on social media platforms inspiring us with new and innovative ways to customize and personalise our trees, the options are endless. If your home is your pride and joy and the tree is the centrepiece of your home, where are you going to get inspiration from this year? We've got you covered. 

Here are a few ways to personalise your Christmas tree and make it unique:


Who says that Christmas decor always has to be the traditional green and red? Why not change things up this year and create a Christmas theme around your favourite colours; Set the tone for a Christmas full of colour by showcasing a spectacular tree that everyone talks about. Hot pink, sparkles, animal prints, your imagination is your limit to creating a stunningly eye-catching colourful Christmas tree that livens up your home. 


DIY decorations are the ultimate way to make your Christmas tree extra personal. What’s a nicer feeling than the pride of displaying your creative skills in the heart of your home? The good news is that you don’t need to be incredibly creative or talented in order to create your own decorations. All you need is a little bit of time to find ideas and get inspired.  Using repurposed, recycled, upcycled and reclaimed decorations is not only an environmentally friendly option but can also cut down on costs significantly. Noone says that Christmas needs to be expensive.

Personalised with memories

Whether you want to feel closer to loved ones who are unable to celebrate with you this year or revisit happy memories from the past, another great way to make your Christmas tree unique is to decorate it with ornaments that are meaningful to you. Consider incorporating special objects that make you smile; photo ornaments, memorial pieces, old Christmas cards, flowers saved from special moments, holiday souvenirs, or anything else that has significance to you,


If you want to snuggle up next to a Christmas tree that is completely original and also deliciously functional, why not consider making edible decorations? The best part is that you don’t need to find space for your ornaments to be stored from year to year and these yummy treats can be eaten throughout the holiday season. It could also be a great idea to give them out as gifts to your Christmas guests. Your tree will not only look good but taste good too. From iced, themed biscuits, to sweet garlands, edible wreaths and sugared candy canes, there is nothing more fun than a Christmas tree you can eat from. 


Do you have a favourite football team? A yen for all things rustic and natural? Perhaps a passion for animals? If you’re particularly creative and like to follow the latest trends, it can be great fun to take your current interests to inspire your Christmas tree decor this year. Whether you go down the creative and whimsical route, or opt for a more minimalist and neutral theme, reflecting your style and creating a theme will have amazing results. It may take a bit of planning, but will be worth it when you see all your ideas come together in a way that will make this tree a show stopper.


Are you in a rented apartment or temporary space this year? Perhaps you don’t have the time or ability to create the tree of your dreams but still want to bring some Christmas spirit into your home? Renting a Christmas tree and decorations has never been easier. Just check your area for a business that can take care of everything for you, from delivery to collection. Christmas tree hire can make good sense, both financially and practically. Take the opportunity to fully enjoy the festive holidays without the hassle of doing it yourself, a suitable option for all tastes and budgets.

Christmas is a special time, but can also be quite lonely for some, especially during these challenging times where not everyone is able to celebrate with their families. The good news is that whether or not you decide to decorate a tree or are able to celebrate with loved ones this year, you have plenty of options to connect with your community and bring the Christmas spirit to your homes. A popular choice nowadays is all-in-one living. It’s a modern and innovative solution which allows you to live, work and socialise in one space, and the best part is that you can choose when you connect with others and how. At Vonder we are proud of our ability to help you to merge how you live, work and play with the development of our all in one living complexes in London, Berlin, Warsaw and Dubai.
