Snowfall Tree Recipe
Christmas Tree Decorating Inspiration: Snowfall Tree
Posted by Fortunoff Backyard Store
Make your white Christmas a reality.
Snow is a magical phenomenon. It falls with such wistful grace and creates otherwordly landscapes out of our everyday lives. Whether it's a frozen lake or a snow-covered forest, there's something breathtaking about the winter season. Our Christmas tree designers and holiday buyers tried to capture this awe-inspiring element with our Snowfall Christmas Tree design. With its cool whites and rich blues, the Snowfall tree is a holiday dream made warmer when surrounded by friends and family.
Although some items are available online, every product we use to create our Snowfall tree design can be found in a Winter Wonderland Showroom near you. These locations can be found in the following states:
Now that you know where to shop, let's get into what makes our Snowfall Christmas tree decoration style a magical addition to any home.
The Style Details:
Winter can be a brutal season, but that brutality isn't present in our Snowfall tree design. Soft, glittering shapes and deep colors are the core of this tree. It's flocked needles drive home the snowy atmosphere our designers had in mind as beautiful snowflake and dreamy shades of blue ornaments contrast against the darker shades. It creates a modern style that mimics the dichotomy of stark blacks and whites without feeling too oppressive.
Blue is the most eye-catching color in this tree design, but that's only because it was built upon a white palette. The flocked branches are not meant to be ignored. Although, they take backseat to the darker shades, shades of white work overtime in this design. The silvers featured in our Snowfall tree work as close sisters to the flocked needles and glittering accents found on the ornaments. They create the sparkle that real snow posesses, and the tree's cool white LED lights only enhance that shimmer.
The shades of blue present in our Snowfall tree demand to be the main characters, and they excel at their job. From the misty blue to the midnight navy shades present, the blues on this tree create the depth and visual appeal of fresh snow in a dark forest. They are moody and elegant.
What Stands Out:
Our Snowfall tree design stays within its winter theme masterfully. The glittering ribbon in light and dark shades stays within a cool color family while snowflakes and frosted branches bring the magic of winter to life.
The combination of these two elements creates an frozen-lake-inspired look. There is grace in these dark colors and familiar shapes. The snowflakes ground the design, which allows the ribbon and supplemental ornaments to experiment with glittering patterns and bold textures. A bejeweled ribbon garland would seem out of place in this modern-style design, but nestled among the other elements of this tree, it feels right at home.
DID YOU KNOW:
Every snowflake is unique. They're just like fingerprints.
