If we love decorating the interior of houses so much this season, it’s probably because we spend a lot more time there than on sunny days! Dressing up your home for the end-of-year celebrations is an excellent idea for quietly getting into the Christmas mood… And what better than the Christmas tree for a decoration that lasts? 

Whether you choose to add touches of fir in addition to the traditional Christmas tree , or simply to replace it , there is no shortage of ideas! It is quite possible to opt for a decoration in natural colors with pretty shades of green , or to add a little red (or other colors) via other flowers to spice up the result a little … It will depend on the tastes!

1. An original table runner

Combined with red berries or holly, the fir tree will perfectly suit all tables, large and small. This adds a more natural touch to the ambiance.

2. The essential Christmas wreath

Whether you put it on the door or in the house to serve as decoration, it always has its effect! You can use rush to make it before inserting the fir branches, or create it by using ribbons to tie the different branches.

3. A seasonal bouquet

Simply placed in a vase or a pretty bottle, the fir branch is beautifully highlighted. It is also very suitable for more elaborate compositions ! In both cases, it is ideal on a piece of furniture or above the fireplace.

5. A delicate wrapping paper

For an elegant Christmas morning, opt for a neutral wrapping paper such as kraft paper . Embellished with a string and a small fir branch, it gives an authentic result that we particularly appreciate.
