Red Christmas Tree Ornaments

by lou16

Red Christmas ornaments are a very traditional color ornament to hang on your Christmas tree and when you choose red you're assured of a great look.

When I think of Christmas colors the two that spring to mind are red and green so it's hardly surprising that red Christmas ornaments are a popular choice for so many people.

Have you ever wondered why red and green became the colors most associated with Christmas in the first place? I have and although I haven't researched it I think I have the answer (well it's what I have always thought anyways) - holly!

Thinking back to images of Christmases gone past one enduring image is of children collecting holly to decorate their homes for the holiday season.

There's even a Christmas song that further perpetuates the association of holly and Christmas, ' the holly and the ivy....' I am so glad that you're reading this because my singing of that was terrible!

The beautiful berries of the holly are red and the leaves are green so when we put red Christmas ornaments on to our traditional green trees we're creating our own version of decorating with holly aren't we?  

Well it makes sense to me, one day I'll research it properly and will no doubt find out that there are a hosts of other reasons for red and green meaning Christmas.

Whatever style of Christmas ornaments you prefer there are red ones to suit from the plain Christmas balls to icicles, finials, onion shaped and more.   Red Christmas ornaments have been popular since Victorian times so you can get Victorian inspired red Christmas ornaments as well as red Disney ornaments and a range of other styles in between.

You can combine the color red with a number of other themes such as shoes, cars and guitars for a fun Christmas theme.

Red and White Christmas Tree Ornaments

A Classic Christmas Theme

Red and white Christmas ornaments are a classic way to decorate Christmas trees and go back to when candy canes were added to Christmas trees to decorate them and also provide a treat for family members over the holiday season.

You can add ornaments that include both red and white as well as a mixture of plain red ornaments and plain white ornaments for a great looking Christmas tree.   Another idea is to actually add red Christmas ornaments to a white tree for an absolutely stunning centerpiece for your room.

Red and White Christmas Trees
Are you over green this year? Why not try a red or a white Christmas tree for a change - they are a classic Christmas combination after all. Let's have a look at how you can create an awesome red and white Chistmas tree for your home or business.

Santa is also usually portrayed in red and white which means that if you love collecting Santa ornaments a red and white Christmas tree decor might suit you as well.

Red and white by themselves aren't the only combination that works well however, red, white and black Christmas ornaments can look very stunning when combined and work extremely well.

If you want to use a different colored Christmas tree then you could go with a black tree and add red and white ornaments or you could go with a red tree and add black and white ornaments - any combination of these three colors works extremely well.

Red Christmas Ornaments Look Good With Lots of Colors

Red is known to be a passionate color so it shouldn't come as a surpise to know that it works well with a number of other color combinations including -

A Red & Gold Christmas Tree
A Red & Gold Christmas Tree
  • Red and Gold
  • Red and Silver
  • Red and Blue
  • Red and Apple Green
  • Red and Green

You can add these different color combinations onto traditional trees or you can add red ornaments onto Christmas trees in other colors like the ones mentioned above ie white, silver, blue.

Red Christmas ornaments are basically a must have ornament for most people's Christmas trees, if you're after some other Christmas ornament ideas though please check out the page below -
