The New Year is drawing near and with it the main tradition of the holiday – the setting up and decorating of the Christmas tree. Whether you have a natural or artificial Christmas tree, you need a pretty decoration. Some traditional Christmas tree decorations are long outdated, others are trendy this year. You can decorate your tree in a European style, in monochrome decorations, or in the usual Soviet traditions. The Christmas symbol’s outfit should match the interior of the room where the tree stands.
Colours of Christmas decorations
The year 2022 will be under the patronage of the Bull.
The favorite colors of this animal, astrologers claim, are white, silver, gold, and blue.
These are the recommended colors for Christmas tree decorations. Tinsel, balls and bells in these colours enhance the deep green of the needles.
They look noble and work together beautifully. You can choose one of these colors or use them all at once.
Stylists advise choosing one base color – blue or white, for example – and using this in decorations, garlands, and tinsel, and accentuating it with decorations in gold and silver.
Red ornaments for the tree should be avoided as the Bull, the symbol of the year, will not like them. However, if you do not believe in horoscopes you can safely use them for your Christmas tree decoration. In that case, you can use a classic red and gold colour combination.
