Easily Update your Decor with Christmas Pillows!Beautiful Pillows to Decorate Your Home for Christmas!


As we pull out Christmas Decor from days of old and decide how to give it a fresh look for this year, we all want quick and easy updates that give our favorite decorations a new and updated appearance.

One of the easiest ways to update decor is with holiday pillows. Pillows in a fresh color palette or new theme is a great way to give any room an updated look for Christmas.

Here Sarah shares some of her favorite pillows featured in the "Meet Ralph" 2014 Christmas Decorating Theme.



If buying or storing all new pillows isn't in your decor plan, then another fabulous solution is pillow wraps. Easily update your existing pillows with a holiday wrap that attaches quickly and gives your pillows a complete new look!

Less Frustration More Decorating with our Easy Plug Christmas Trees



We've been introducing our 2014 Christmas Decorating Themes over the past few weeks. Each is special and unique in its own way but the one centerpiece of each theme is the TREE! No room is complete without a beautifully decorated tree.

Unfortunately, getting a tree ready to decorate can be one of the frustrating parts of holiday preparation! Untangling miles of lights or even piecing together complex instructions for pre-lit trees can take all the fun out of Christmas prep.

So, if you want to skip right to the fun part, then our Easy Plug Christmas Trees are perfect for you!

The 2014 Christmas Decorating Theme "Meet Ralph" also features an Easy Plug Christmas Tree that beautifully showcases the theme's beautiful colors and textures.




Our "Christmas Lodge" theme tree gives all our woodland creatures a place to frolic and is a beautiful focal point in that theme. It also features one of our new Easy Plug Christmas Trees!


Our Easy Plug Christmas Trees come in 7.5 feet and 9 feet, as well as full and pencil styles. The trees have simple instructions and a great warranty. Even better? Our trees are currently 60% off!



Enjoy the simplicity, quality and beauty of a realistic Trees n Trends artificial Christmas tree. Made from quality materials with superior craftsmanship, our artificial Christmas trees will give you and your family years of beautiful Christmas holiday experiences. Our buyers search for only the best construction and value for our customers. We have a variety of heights, colors, and styles, including un-lit and pre-lit Christmas trees.

A Christmas Decorating Theme for Every Member of the Family

Every year Trees n Trends loves to introduce a wide array of Christmas Decorating Themes to inspire you while creating your holiday decor. We've already showcased A Winter's Forest, a snowy theme with lots of sparkle, and Christmas Lodge, a theme inspired by your favorite menswear fabrics.

Our last three themes have something for every member of the family... take a look!


"Meet Ralph" is a traditional decorating theme inspired by a classic All American designer. We all know Dad is usually the member of the family drawn to more traditional, casual themes instead of the fancier, glamorous themes.


That's why Meet Ralph will be a crowd-pleaser with Dad and every other member of the family. The theme's beautiful red and green color combo features a casual elegance that encourages the family to sit down and cuddle up during the holiday season.  From the fabric patchwork ribbons to the rustic elements throughout the theme, Meet Ralph is the perfect Christmas Decorating Theme for fans of a uniquely American aesthetic.




"Vintage Treasures"  Moms are the memory-keepers of the family. Family memories of days past are the inspiration of our next 2014 Christmas Decorating Theme Vintage Treasures.


This theme is another traditionally red and green color palette.  Vintage Treasures features vintage toys that will have the adults remembering happy mornings spent beneath the trees and the kids longing for toys without a screen! The theme also predominantly features shiny red Christmas ornaments, harken back to the vintage mercury glass of Christmases past.





"Whimsical Friends" For so many families, Christmas is for the children. Whimsical Friends is a Christmas Decorating Theme inspired by the youngest members of the family.


Whimsical Friends revolves around the magical creatures that make the holiday special for the younger set. This theme features sparkly snowman, mischievous elves, frolicking reindeer, and ... of course... Santa! This brightly colored theme also includes candy-coated additions with red and white "peppermint" ribbons and accessories.

7 Must Have Accessories for the Winter Season

With colder temperatures rapidly filling the forecast, it's time to start transitioning your wardrobe from the warmer weather of fall to the chilly frost of winter.

Trees n Trends is here to help with our expanded accessory department offering the latest styles to keep you looking fresh and staying warm!

  1. Jewelry Now it won't keep you warm, but a cool-toned bangle or holiday-themed necklace is an excellent way to update your wardrobe or add pops of sparkle for an upcoming Christmas party.
  2. Boot Socks We have a new and wide selection of the #1 must-have accessory for winter - the book sock! Not only do these fun additions freshen the appearance of last year's boots, but they add an extra layer of protection against dropping temps.
  3. Hats We spotted many of you trying on our new winter hats during the Holiday Open House and loved seeing you sporting new styles! From a felt fedora bedecked with glittery broaches to vintage caps in bold colors, it's time to upgrade that sad sock cap and stay warm in style!
  4. Pashminas A fringed wrap in a neutral tone is the perfect way to take warmer weather clothing into the colder months. Just throw a beautiful pashmina over a black T and you're ready to go!
  5. Leggings We love all the fun new patterns of this season's legging collections. Bold paisleys or graphic houndstooth leggings underneath a tunic or sweater dress is a fabulous way to show off your personal style this holiday season.
  6. A New Bag Adding a new bag in warm leather or a bold tribal print can add a pop of style to any outfit and is a great way to upgrade your winter look.
  7. Headbands Keep the static cling that comes with winter weather at bay with our new collection of headbands and hair wraps. You can also use these hair accessories to make your little black dress a little more interesting for the upcoming holiday season!
What are your favorite winter accessories?

"Christmas Lodge" - A Manly Christmas Decorating Theme for 2014


Imagine the man of the house sitting by a roaring fire with a book in one hand and a cocktail in another and you have the perfect setting for our next Trees n Trends 2014 Christmas Decorating Theme "Christmas Lodge."


Perfect for your man cave, "Christmas Lodge" is a very masculine theme inspired by popular menswear fabrics and textures such as houndstooth, wool, and leather.

Also, not to be missed, are the main feature of the theme the woodland bears adding a touch of lightness to the theme.

We look forward to sharing the details of "A Winter's Forest" - as well as our other 2014 Christmas Decorating Themes over the coming weeks! As always, you can find all the products featured in this theme at your local Trees n Trends.
