Have Yourself a Merry, Quirky Christmas

University of Texas Christmas Tree

It’s that time of year…again.

Are you tired of the same old clear, red, and multi-color string lights? Do you wish “O Tannenbaum” could be something other than a boring evergreen tree?

The holidays may be a time for tradition, but tradition doesn’t mean your holidays can’t have personality. From crazy-colored lights to odd Christmas trees and “themed” holiday celebrations, here are a few ideas to make this coming holiday truly your own.

 

Fun Christmas Light Colors

Mini lights come in colors as diverse as green, pink, and purple. LED wide angle lights and LED C6 lights come in similarly varied hues. You name the color, and chances are, you can find it at 1000Bulbs.com.

But where do you start? An easy idea is to pick your favorite color to decorate your home. Maybe you just happen to like the color pink, so why not dress up your tree in that color? Or perhaps green, purple, teal, or even a “festive” combination of colors best fit your fancy.

Themed Holiday Celebrations

Another idea is to go with a themed holiday. Create a vintage, candlelight-inspired look with amber mini lights and bubble lights. Use red, white, and blue lights to add a patriotic flair to your festivities. For an “Old West” theme, use cow skull or cowboy boot lights along with a lighted chili pepper ristra. You could also go with a sports theme—an option especially popular in man cave lighting. Pick lights in the color of your favorite football, basketball, or baseball team to show your dedication to your holiday guests.

Unique Christmas Trees

Artificial Palm Tree

Artificial Christmas trees are available in enough fun colors and shapes to make your Douglas Fir or Spruce look just plain boring. For a splash of color, try a tinsel Christmas tree in bright blue or deep red or use a copper tinsel tree to complete your vintage look. Enhance your sports theme with a tree decked out in university team colors. You could even consider a palm tree for a bit of tropical respite from winter weather.
