Let’s decorate another Christmas Tree! I’m inviting you back into my holiday home to take a look at my Red and Cozy Christmas Tree and to share some new Christmas Tree decorating ideas! (I’m also sharing a little peek at the rest of my family room Christmas decor too!)

Red and Cozy Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

I’ve managed to decorate one of my three Christmas trees and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you today. This is the tree in my family room. For the past three years, this tree has been decorated with a red theme, so I decided to keep with the tradition for another year.

Speaking of holiday decorating, I’m also back with my Seasons of Home blogger friends. The theme for this week is “Holiday Home Tour.” Some of us are sharing a full home tour, others are sharing a single space, and some of us (pointing a finger at myself) are sharing Christmas tree decorations. I hope you’ll take the time to click through all of the inspiring and festive posts I’ve linked below.

It also recently came to my attention that I rarely share photos of myself on the blog. I’m going to try and be better about that, so here’s a picture of Leo and I!

Onto the tree!

My Red and Cozy Christmas Tree:

Before I get into all of the nitty-gritty details, let’s take a look at my latest tree!

What do you think? I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it came together. If you’ve seen my tree in this room before, you will realize that the look is similar, but also different.

This year when I first began decorating this tree, I started off with an entirely different concept. If you’re following me on Instagram (@inspiredbycharm) you may even have had a sneak peek at its initial look. I originally thought I would do a mix of everything and go for a really colorful and eclectic tree, but there was something about it that just didn’t strike me. It was a bit too much and honestly, it made me feel a bit anxious. So I trusted my gut, did some editing, and settled on this fabulous Red and Cozy Christmas Tree.

As I mentioned above, since I’ve been in this house, I’ve been doing a variation of this design in my family room each year. I’m sure that one of these days I’ll break from the red, but for now, I just love the color in here. It feels like Christmas to me and that’s the point after all!

If you want to see some of the other variations of this tree, you can find those here:

In general, my entire decorating theme for this year has been taking the things I love from past years, and while keeping some of the details, tweaking the look with new items. This is exactly what I did with the living room mantel that I shared last week.

This feels like a much more manageable approach for Christmas decorating rather than starting completely new every year.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the details.

Red and Cozy Christmas Tree Decorations:

I mostly used decorations I had on hand to create this Red and Cozy Christmas Tree, but there are a few new and notable additions.

Red and Cozy Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas #christmastree #christmas #holiday #tree #cozy #treedecorations #decorations

First, the actual tree is a new design from Balsam Hill. It’s their 7ft Nordmann Fir tree with white Candlelight Clear LEDS. I’m loving how realistic this tree looks, especially the top!

One of my favorite new additions is these mini stockings from Penny and Ivy. There are 25 of these mini stockings on the tree and they were all handmade by Emily of Penny and Ivy. Each of these stockings is unique and special. I was marveling at the detail on each one as I hung them on the tree. I especially love the little numbered tags. It’s all in the details! If Penny and Ivy is new to you, be sure to check out Emily’s site HERE. You can also find her on Instagram @pennyandivy to stay informed of her shop updates.

I also purchased this adorable bird ornament from Kim Myers Smith. It’s actually an original mini oil painting and I couldn’t love it more. Following Kim’s art journey has been such a joy and I’m honored to have been able to purchase one of her paintings for my tree.

For something different, I tucked in these jumbo pinecones that I found HERE. I love how they look nestled into the tree.

And as I mentioned above, the rest of the ornaments were items I had in my collection. Even the ribbon that I used, which is a favorite of mine, was the same ribbon I used a couple of years ago on my Cozy Lodge Christmas Tree.

Speaking of ribbon, I have an entire blog post (and video) dedicated to showing you how I add ribbon to my Christmas trees. You can find that HERE.

I also wanted to point out my “under the tree” decorations. This has become one of my favorite little areas to decorate in recent years and this tree was no exception.

As usual, I tucked in some wrapped presents, ribbon, and even a picnic basket, but the big showstopper is my new-to-me vintage Campfire Marshmallows tin. These are highly coveted and I’ve been l looking for one for years. Well, as you can see, I finally found one and I am thrilled with how it looks under the tree.

I also included a couple of my vintage Scotch tape tins. I think they look so perfect! In fact, vintage touches are a must for my Christmas decor. You can read about some other ways I decorate with vintage Christmas decor HERE.

While these under-the-tree decorations may not be necessary, I think they add a special touch and complete the look of the tree. I also secretly love how I can use these items to conceal the base of the tree and hide the many wires and extension cords.

Want to see more of my tree decorating ideas from Christmases past? I have an entire blog post where I share 20+ of my Christmas tree designs. You can find that HERE. I hope it serves as inspiration as you decorate your own tree.

    I so look forward to your Christmas displays and this one being no different. Love the mantle with the bottlebrush trees! Cute! Cute! Cute! Love the decor on this year’s tree, though my favorite was last year’s tree as it was my screensaver/wallpaper on my phone! I LOVE red!! =-()

    It’s always such a treat each year to see your Christmas decor! I so look forward to it because you make everything you touch seem so special. It’s just magical!

  • Marian at

    Michael, you and Leo look so cute by your Christmas tree. I wonder if Leo likes to undecorate the tree. One year my cat climbed up the middle of the tree, and as he held on to the top of it, the tree tipped over and Spooky was thrown acrosss the room. My family and I sat in awe. I love your tree. I.t has put me in the Christmas mood. Thank you!

  • Anne at

    Michael, you are so talented and creative! Love this year’s tree! Love the picture of you and Leo! Please do write a Christmas book.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s several years old now. Unfortunately I no longer have a source for it as the place I purchased it doesn’t sell it. Sorry!

      xo Michael

  • Jan in Portland at

    It is wrong that I am exclaiming – “Michael’s trees are here, Michael’s trees are here!!!!” I look forward to this every year. I tell folks you HAVE to follow Michael. (Possibly, they think I am a freak- but love all you do!) Thank you, Michael.

    • Debbie at

      I so agree!! Michael’s trees are gorgeous, starting with the stunning rainbow tree from years ago. I don’t know how he makes each tree so beautiful and so unique. ❤️

  • Jacquie Beaudette at

    Michelle, I’ve always thought the same thing that I would buy his book. It could be his home decor, his Christmas decor or both. Love your style Michael!

  • Michele Skinner at

    so, a) i want to live with you for the holidays. and b) please put out a coffee table book of nothing but holiday decorating and baking and goodness, because i would read it cover to cover, and add it to my stack of books that i lovingly read by the fireplace to get into the holiday spirit every single year. chop chop, baby.

    • Corrie at

      Michele, yes! We NEED a holiday book from Michael! ASAP! I, too would get it out every holiday season to read, over and over and over.

      PS: Michael, I grew up in a house of the same era, and it’s been so fun to see you transform yours.

  • Kathryn at

    Beautiful.

    Love the top with the 4 sprigs sticking out.
    Did you crochet the white garland and make the beaded garland
    K~

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you!! And no, I did not make either of those.

      xo Michael

  • Karol at

    How do you keep your cat from the tree?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I don’t. My cats have never bothered my trees. I guess I’m just lucky!

      xo Michael

  • Mom at

    Love your tree and can’t wait to come and sit by the fire in this cozy room and your picture with Leo is a keeper, you look great!!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at
