Soňa Průšová from the Metamorphosis florists answers questions:

Which colour will Christmas trees be “wearing” this year to ensure that they are IN?

Christmas this year will play out in the spirit of natural materials with a touch of the forest and also a little bit of a fairy-tale theme. Decorations come predominantly in colours of natural wood in various shades ranging from light beige all the way through to chocolate brown. Accessories will brighten things up in snow white, be this in the form of glass decorations or wooden snowflakes. There should certainly be some textile on your tree this year, for example in the form of bows or fabric decorations.

Could you compare the trends of last year and this year in decoration of Christmas trees?

Last year was above all really glowing, shiny and solid. Whereas this year, the decoration will tend to be more sober and matte and we will be allowing individual types of decorations to stand out.

What is a major faux pas while decorating your tree?

Doing the fairy lights all wrong. This is the most unpopular job, but one of the most important as far as aesthetics are concerned. Lots of people decorating their tree just chuck their fairy lights onto it and don’t worry about anchoring individual bulbs. You have to twist them in different directions and stabilise them in an upright position. The worst thing of all is then little cables sticking out. You need to copy the form of the tree as much as possible.

Is there any sort of correct procedure for decorating a Christmas tree?

Ideally, you should leave the tree to stand for a few hours after anchoring it in the stand to allow the individual branches to fall into place. You should start with the fairy lights, followed by decoration using the largest decorations, moving on down to the very smallest. Pay the most attention to large decorations. They should predominantly be hung on the bottom half of the tree, not at the tip.

Which mistake do people most often make?

The tip. A lot of people still have the tendency to decorate the tip with some sort of object, be this a star, a bow or something else. This then makes the tree look significantly smaller and it sort of sinks into the floor. If you leave the tip undecorated, the tree as such stands out much better and comes across in a more airy and natural manner.
