My Simple Nordic Christmas Tree

And here we are again, another year and another Christmas tree!  2020 has been quite the year…..the understatement of the century, right?  But, I cannot and will not let it dull our joy and happiness.  Christmas is a wonderful time of year for our family, and why not start a bit earlier this year and truly enjoy the season to its fullest.  One of the first things that we tackle is our Christmas tree.  This year, I am going for a simple Nordic Christmas tree.  

Today I am sharing my Nordic Christmas tree along with some of my favorite bloggers! Make sure to check out all their Christmas trees at the end of the post!

I find my style changing subtly every year, but one thing is constant.  I want things simple. Black and white, and metallic ornaments along with dried orange garland topped with tiny twinkle lights is kind of right up my alley.

This year, I decided to change things up and get an Artificial Christmas tree, and my heart is still missing that trip out to the forest to find our perfect tree, so we still will do that for another room.  I have been thinking of getting an artificial tree for the past couple year, for convenience, and I finally chose one from King of Christmas.

The Noble Fir Christmas tree I chose is less full than some of the trees, but I loved the shape and the branches and needles are so realistic! It was so easy to assemble too.

I started decorating my tree by adding my tiny copper twinkle lights that are operated by remote.  These are so great, and I love they way they look at night. 

Then I add my favorite old time accessory, these battery operated candle lights that clip on the tree and have a remote to run them.  It makes your tree look nostalgic and so lovely.

I added my dried orange garland next, and if you are curious as to how to make these, check this post out!

These were so inexpensive to make and I have used them for 3 years so far!  They have lasted much longer than I expected.  I added the rest of my ornaments, rotating the different textures and colors.

I made some simple string tassels to add to the tree as well, I think they are a fun addition.

Instead of a tree skirt, I used an extra rug I had lying around and draped it over the bottom of the tree.

I love it when it is time to put the tree up.  I love sitting by the fire at night watching the twinkle lights glow.  There is something so comforting about that.

I love the combination of the ornaments this year, along with the orange slice ornaments and garlands.

How do you like to decorate your tree?  Do you go simple, or over the top?  Either way is perfect in my opinion!

    1. To me this is the perfect tree! I love the sparseness and being able to enjoy and see the ornaments! Oh- your Nordic advent tree is beautiful as well!

  1. If only 2020 could have felt and looked as serene, uncomplicated, and naturally beautiful as your Christmas home does. Well done you, well done. Cheers and Happy Holidays, Ardith

  2. I LOVE your tree!

    We just bought a similar tree still in the box too early to put that up, for us.

    Outdoor decorations have been up for 2 weeks we do NOT like to do all that work in the cold weather have is all done looks beautiful thousands of white lights all over the shrubs out front and out back, wreaths, garlands, etc. and the old New England tradition we leave the decorations up until St. Patrick’s Day.

    Thank you for sharing your tree.
