Which Theme Should I Choose for my Christmas Tree?

If you have recently invested in one of the Christmas trees from Weston Sawmill, you may be wondering what sort of theme will work best for your tree.

Luckily, our team have over 25 years of experience in providing the finest range of trees for customers across Shropshire and Staffordshire.

For this blog, we are going to share a handful of ideas to get your Christmas creative juices flowing.

Essential Themes for Christmas Trees

A Musical Christmas – If your family enjoys a musical, then you could use music notes, instruments and bells as Christmas decorations. Anyone who sees your tree once it is decorated will know exactly what it is all about.

Winding some musical note ribbon through the branches will add to the musical portion of the tree. You can fill in the gaps with gold and silver ornaments and tree picks to complete this elegant look.

The Coastal Christmas Tree – If you and your family enjoy the sand and watercolours of coastal decor, you could opt for a coastal festive theme.

Using shells, faux coral and manzanita branches will give the idea of the beach without going over the top. These types of colours are ideal for bringing a beachy feel.

Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree – A winter wonderland theme brings the outside indoors, using silver, white and brown colour scheme which will feel very wintery.

The earthy elements plus the furry owl decorations will prevent it from feeling too cold.

Snowy Christmas Tree – A snowy tree theme incorporates polar bears and penguins as the animal decorations on the tree. With plenty of white ornaments, snowflakes and white tree picks will give it a wintry feel.

Eco-Friendly Ways to Dispose of Christmas Trees

Christmas trees are one of the most important decorations for the festive season, dating back to the 16th century in Germany.

Having a natural Christmas tree from Weston Sawmill looks spectacular, but it’s important to remember the right ways to dispose of your tree once the sleigh bells have stopped ringing.

Here at Weston Sawmill, we are extremely environmentally conscious, which is why we are going to share some of the best ways to dispose of Christmas trees.

Environmentally Conscious Christmas Trees

Our range of Christmas trees are homegrown at our nursery in Weston-under-Lizard and are much easier to dispose of than artificial trees that will usually end up on landfill sites.

Here are some ways to benefit the environment when getting rid of your Christmas tree –

Make Firewood – If you have a fireplace in your home, you can use the wood from your tree to warm the house on those cold January days.
Use as Mulch – The needle-like leaves from your Christmas tree can be used as mulch in your garden, as they don’t collect mold and decompose quite slowly.
Donate Your Tree – Once Christmas is over your tree could still prove useful to your local farm or zoo, as it can be used as treats or a plaything for the animals.
Find Christmas Tree Collection Service – Some charities (depending on your location) run a Christmas tree collection service, which will ensure your tree is recycled and used for other purposes.
