Black Christmas Tree

How to pull off a flawless and bold BLACK Christmas tree and home decor for the holidays

Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? For a stylish Christmas that is sure to wow and create a bold look try decorating this year with the most unconventional Christmas decor color… Black!

Start yourself off with an artificial black Christmas tree, preferably one that is big and bushy. Make sure it is covered in white Christmas lights (you may need more than an average tree due to the darkness of the tree branches). Find yourself some beautiful and unique Christmas ornaments with lots of sparkle and shine- stick with clear, white, black and silver ornaments. The less color in the decor the more dramatic the look. Keep it as black, grey, white and clear as possible! Red can be used as an accent as long as you have the self control to keep it to a minimum.

Find yourself a super sparkly garland, large flowers (real or silk) with maybe a bit of silver lining and a bold uncoventional Christmas tree topper. Think of using a wide silver ribbon to create a bow for the top of the tree or sparkling tree branches or even long white flowing feathers…. get creative and be sure to stay unconventional.

At the Edmonton Festival of Trees 2010 one submission was perfectly done as a gorgeous black tree. The designers found a motor to slowly turn the tree and used a large mirror for the base of the tree to make the piece sparkle and shine.

Be sure not to stop at just the tree. All of your presents should be wrapped in metallic silver foil paper or high gloss black with silver or velvet ribbons. Cover your table with ornate black ornaments (the same ones you used on the tree).  Tie a black ribbon around your dining room chairs and switch out your lampshades for black ones! Be sure to add extra bling to your space with extra crystals hung off your chandelier/wall sconces and table laps and use them in your napkin rings and wine glass markers. Overflow an ornate clear glass vase with ornaments and consider an all silver wreath for the front door.

Let me know how it goes and be sure to send me photos!! (lb@laurabielecki.com)

  1. Laura,
    I want to thank you for your comment on my blog.
    That’s so funny, but earlier that day I was researching for a post I was looking for some pictures on Houzz and I saw some of your pictures there and if it’s ok with you, I’m going to use some, linking it to your blog here. Then, later on that same day I saw your comment and I was in shock! I can’t believe I found yur pictures and you came to my blog on the same day.. isn’t it weird? lol
    This world is so small! :-)
    I hope you have a great trip to Italy and let me know how it goes, ok?
    Have a great week,
    Luciane
    PS: I almost moved to Edmonton 3 years ago… It’s a pretty fun city.

  2. Happy New Year Luciane!
    Thank you for your kind words on my blog and work. Us Canadians must be linked together somehow to visit each other on the same day! I have gone through your whole blog and love all of the great work you have put into it, keep it up! Where in Canada are you? I am originally from Calgary, lived in Montreal for a few years and am now in Edmonton.
    Italy is going to be fantastic… I have never been. I’m sure I will be writing blog articles about it before and after for quite some time as I am going for Salone Internazionale del Mobile!
    I hope to hear lots more from you as we share our inspiration and design muses.
    Hugs and love,
    Laura
