Each year Raz Imports create Christmas themes that draw together stunning collections of ornaments for both the Christmas tree and table top displays. What they also do is provide visual inspiration of these themes in stunning feature tree images. The 2017 Christmas themes are stunning (as always).
After being in the business for 10 years I sometimes wonder how they can come up with something new for Christmas each year - but they do. What I like to also think about when looking at themes is how I could use existing decorations to create the new look. For example, last year we had a theme with black/white, gold/white and pops of bright pink and blue. This year they have replaced the pink and blue with red so the display looks fresh and new but it is not necessary to buy all new decorations.
Please enjoy these images and let me know which is your favourite. (Images courtesy of Raz Imports)
Winter Forest - Featuring darker tones of red, Santas, and floral prints on the ribbon and decorations.
Whimsical Woodlands - frosted tones set the back ground for a sweet array of woodland foliage and creatures.
Trimmed with Tradition - Red and green rule in a traditional Christmas theme. Lots of traditional flowers and stems including poinsettia, mistletoe, holly combine with traditional hanging ornaments including nutcrackers, presents, bells, etc.
Ski Patrol - The bear rules in this country theme for 2017. Knits, sleighs and the delightful bear pull together to create this sweet theme.
Santa Supply Company - Vintage bling and smiling Santas fill this stunning Christmas tree.
Raz Express - The Christmas train becomes the stunning feature in this whimsical display. For any little girls or boys who love trains this is such a sweet new addition to their range.
Pomegranate & Pine - I'm not normally a fan of pinks for Christmas but I love the rich raspberry tones added to red, burgundy and accents of lime green in this tree. It is so lush and so elegant.
Peppermint Kitchen - OK, I have to admit this is another favourite (yes, I have 3 or 4 I can't decide between this year). I'm always a fan of whimsical Christmas design, and love the gingerbread pieces, but the gorgeous light denim blue really gives this tree a new look and design.
Homespun Holiday - I really love the use of felt in this tree theme. I think it creates that touch of whimsy to otherwise traditional Christmas colours. The chalkboard black has been popular for a few years now and this theme also embraces this colour.
Holiday Dreams - This is another of my favourite themes this year (I think I'm being drawn in by the themes with gorgeous blue tones). Grey/blues and natural elements in the Birch ribbon create a very elegant but soft look for this tree.
Golden Botanical - We see a lot more use of florals and and leaf picks in the Christmas trees from our US suppliers than we do from Australian suppliers. The base to this tree is the gorgeous cream flower and magnolia leaves, and gold and cream decorations create a very elegant style.
Glad Tidings - This is another of my favourites. I love the pop of black and white on the tree. I also have to admit I want a set of those nutcrackers on the mantel in my home this year.
First Snow - We have seen frosted themes for the last few years. This year there is a little more warmth with the use of some champagne decorations as well as a green Christmas tree base (rather than the heavily flocked trees used in the past).
Deck the Shores - Champagne gold with soft tones of blues and greens are used in this Christmas tree theme. You also find a mix of sea creatures and coral inspired picks in the feature decorations.
Everything Merry - If you love your canine then you will love this tree. Traditional colours with a range of decorations (including the bone picks which I've never seen before) inspired by "man's best friend".
Copper Mountain - There is just a touch of copper to this otherwise woodsy decorated Christmas tree. Copper has been a popular colour for a couple of years but this is the first time I've seen it paired with red. I love the use of the lanterns in the tree.
Christmas Tree Orchard - Another theme that uses red/white/black but this time it has a distinctly country feel to it. Elves continue to be such a popular Christmas decoration and this tree puts them centre stage.
