The 10 Best Christmas Trees The Internet Has To Offer
I should preface this post by saying (if you don’t know): I am Jewish. But even though I didn’t grow up with a beaming Christmas tree in my living room every holiday season, I have trimmed and decorated my fair share, and have been an admiring observer of the first things I can remember. It’s exciting for me to imagine what kind of tree I would have in an alternate universe: real or fake, big or small, natural or dead, modern or heirloom? These are big decisions, people! And I admire you all for making them year after year. If you already have a tall tree in your house (or stand briefly on the tabletop), I’d love to know how you solved it. But if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect tree and a little guidance on how to decorate it, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the top 10 most beautiful Christmas trees on the Internet for you to search freely.

This tree feels elevated while maintaining a level of accessibility — there’s no need to overdo it when it comes to the look and feel of a traditional Tannenbaum tree.
Outdoor activities have found their way into our home decor over the past few years. Camille’s woodland-inspired tree is a perfect example of how a trend can seamlessly transition into our holiday themed living rooms. The resulting composition is undeniably unique and delivers the expected festive atmosphere while still creating a great jungle vibe.

There’s something wonderful about the winter tradition of going outdoors, cutting down trees, and literally bringing the great outdoors into your home. This tree takes au naturel Take it a step further by knitting pine cones (an easy Christmas ornament) and adorable forest creature ornaments for a simple yet impressive display. And don’t worry — you can still create this look if artificial plants are your only option.
Regardless of what they say, this tree is proof that this mid-century design craze is in full swing. Nothing speaks to nostalgia like getting into the holiday spirit, and while this photo is clearly reminiscent of a certain era, it’s also fun, charming, and weirdly cute. It’s the type of plant that is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you step into the living room for a sneak peek.
What’s easier on the eyes than an all-white Christmas tree? This holiday season, probably not. Recreate the look for yourself with a range of white and beige paper, clay and DIY ornaments with simple and streamlined geometric shapes. Not only is this a perfect low-maintenance solution for us, but the end product will be a sight of peace and lightness to the soul.
This is the option for all maximalists. If you don’t mind bringing a little color into your Christmas cheer, this is the tree that inspires you. The trick is to balance bold colors with minimal dispersion of ornaments of identical shapes and sizes. Forget what you’ve heard about less is more and get ready to expand the hall to your heart’s content.
If you think the only animals that can work on your Christmas tree are reindeer and pigeons, think again. A rainbow of butterflies mixed with floral ornaments and elements really brings this plant to life. Adopted by everyone’s favorite uber-creative designer, Joy Cho, this twist sits at the heart of every vacation home that will leave you smiling with delight. While a certain palette of flora and fauna can certainly match a natural, evergreen plant, pairing a decor near neon lights with a bright white fabric makes your decor, and so your creative genius really shines.
Contrasting, yet iconic, this tree exudes elegant simplicity. While there is certainly a time and place to enjoy a beautifully decorated Christmas tree (you know, the kind that would make Mr. and Mrs. Claus proud), I am a strong proponent of letting beauty take its course. nature of shining branches. A Charlie Brown-esque tree can be made alluring and even glamorous with a purposeful arrangement of just enough glitter decorations and fairy lights. Experiment with a range of different shapes, styles, and textures, but make sure to follow a consistent color palette as you decorate.
This is the kind of tree I can imagine sitting in the corner of the most luxurious ski chalet or could be set up as multiple trees in a boutique hotel at Christmas time. Create the tree’s satisfying symmetry by hanging long garlands of glitter all over. Add to that a few strategically placed glass ornaments, and you have the most beautiful tree.
