Three Preppy Themed Christmas Trees

I am unreasonably excited to put up our Christmas tree on Friday. Honestly, I would have done it sooner…but I have a grinch living with me 😉 So we will wait. I ordered a bunch of ornaments on Rue La La anyways, so I’m kind of ok with waiting. To be honest, I bought a lot of ornaments for this year – mostly all snowman themed! Between vacations, online sales, and just finding ones I loved around town, they just sort of accumulated. I am looking forward to hanging them all on our tree.

We have a classic (faux) tree with colored lights on it. However, each year it seems like more and more people are doing themed trees and I love the idea! I can’t wait until we eventually have our own house and do one real one and then can do one faux and themed one in a different room. Anyways…I thought it would be fun to do a post on themed trees and a guide to three distinct preppy themes. Check out my picks below!

Woodland themed tree

This seems like the most popular this year, although they’ve been around for a while. I think Pottery Barn may have been the one to start this trend a few years ago. I love this animal-centric and rustic themed tree. I think this looks best with a classic green tree and white lights. I picked some ornaments and and rustic topper that would be perfect for a woodland themed tree. A faux fur tree skirt would be perfect with this as well, along with pinecone garland. Winter woodland heaven!

Colorful (and preppy!) tree

A colorful tree is perfect for a home full of ladies or for anyone who appreciates a pop of color in their home. I chose a pink tree for this with white lights – how fun! It’s amazing how many different faux trees are out there nowadays. For this, you’ll need lots of colorful and whimsical ornaments. I love the macaroon one and I think this ice cream truck would be a great addition as well, along with this colorful train. I am also OBSESSED with the Lilly tree skirts on One Kings Lane this year – if my boyfriend wouldn’t seriously oppose, I would totally get one. You can take this theme in so many directions and it’s really fun to pick such bright and upbeat decorations, if you ask me.

Tropical Tree

I think this one may be my favorite since I am obsessed with the beach. My mom just got a bunch of beach-themed ornament for our little tree in my family’s vacation home and I can’t wait for it to be all set up! This is another theme that has many options. A white tree with white lights would be perfect for this idea, but I think a green tree with white lights would look good too. I love all the ornaments I featured here as well as the simple burlap tree skirt. If you want a skirt with more pizazz, though, this one is perfect. Just like Kenny Chesney, all I ever really want for Christmas is a real good tan.

What I love best about all of these trees is that you can put them together at a reasonable price and that each of them showcases your personal interests and personalities. If it were up to me, I’d pick a different theme every year!
