Macy’s 2014 Christmas Tree Themes


Now that the Halloween holiday is over, stores have rolled out their Christmas trees and decorations. Love it or hate it, the Christmas season has begun. Take a look to get some inspiration, or some additional ornaments to add to your collection.

Regal Peacock Themed Christmas Tree and Ornaments

The rich jewel tones of the peacock continue to be a popular inspiration for designs. The core colors of a peacock theme come from gemstones. Emerald green, sapphire blue, and quartz purple.

Decoration sheens are usually satin or semi-gloss, avoiding being too muted and dull on one end of the sheen spectrum and not overly glossy or mirrored as to be distracting. Truly stunning peacock textures are iridescent to match the peacock’s natural plumage. And, of course, there are lots of peacock feathers along with fluffy elements.

Accents to the decorations are often jewels and precious metal- often gold or sometimes silver.

Joy to the World Christmas Tree and Ornaments

The Joy to the World collection of decorations emphasize the Christian elements of the season; Baby Jesus, angels, stars, and crosses. Gold and ivory dominate the color palette of this theme with touches of brown and bronze.

Red & White Candy Stripe Christmas Tree Theme

This theme does not have an official name on the Macy’s web site, so I’ve named it Red & White Candy Stripe. It is an interesting design as it foregoes the almost cliché candy canes and instead uses curled ribbon. The white tree and silver accented decorations complete this stand out look.

Ballet Christmas Tree Theme

Ballet figurines are the key element of this design. The dominant color is pink paired with white and gold, making it a very feminine design. Using pastel shades give this tree a classical feel. One could use bolder colors for a more energetic feel.

Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Tree Theme

The Santa’s Sleigh theme has all the basics; red, green, white, gold, wreaths, bells, poinsettias, and of course Santa and his sleigh. The bold colors and focus on Santa arriving in his sleigh filled with presents would be popular with younger boys eager for their loot and parents who enjoy seeing their children’s eyes light up when receiving something new.

Playfully Cute Christmas Tree Theme

This theme does not have an official name on the Macy’s web site, so I’ve named it Playfully Cute because of the squat, child-like designs. Stylized owls, Santas, snowmen, and various animals bring to mind youthful play and fun.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Christmas Tree Theme

Once again, a theme that does not have an official name on the Macy’s web site. I’ve designated it as Hark! The Herald Angels Sing given the proliferation of angels. Muted red, gold, and ivory are the core colors of this theme.

Geek Factor

Peacocks are the male gender of the peafowl species of birds. The female is the peahen and offspring are peachicks.
