Choosing the right Christmas Tree is an important decision for all
Holiday Design professionals. Finding the right tree or trees in the right style, size, and shape is
key and done months prior to setup. After your trees are purchased, determining how much material to
use to accomplish your look largely depends size and shape of the tree. Christmas trends are not
limited to color patterns, design style, or material, as it once used to be. Improvements in tree
construction, lighting, and materials have helped in the production of more realistic varieties of
artificial Christmas Trees. A variety of Christmas trees shapes include traditional A-line,
windswept, upswept, natural layered, irregular layered, rounded-top, pointed-top, upside-down, or
top-tip-to floor Christmas trees. While some shapes provide more coverage, other are more
dimensional. A shorter Christmas Tree in a large Banquet Hall with Cathredal ceilings may serve as
too underwhelming losing viewers interest. Selecting the right size and shape of your Christmas tree
is half your battle. And, the “Wow” factor will be part of your decorating style!
