A Pottery Barn Christmas Tree With All the Trimmings

It’s hard not to gush over a Pottery Barn Christmas tree. Whether it’s in the magazine or in the store, they’re always festive, fun and styled to perfection. But how can you get the same look in your home?

Some of our best tree-trimming experts are actually found right in your local store. After a couple Christmas seasons at Pottery Barn, they’ve learned the ins and outs of how to make a Christmas tree look perfect. This year, as an extension of our complimentary in-home Design Services, a group of team members from our Burlingame, California store designed a beautiful Pottery Barn Christmas tree at a nearby home.

Read on to see just how they did it, and their tips and tricks for getting the same look in your home.

Fishing line helps keep the bigger Woodland Creatures (including the Hedgehog in this photo) in place.  While most of the ornaments come with metal hooks, this team used twine instead for a rustic touch.

I just wanted to tell you I just saw your post and I think I’m going to copy your idea of the Eiffel Tower as your tree topper in light of what happened 2 days ago. My usual angel will be placed this year for the Eiffel Tower. You may have had good design for 2013, but this year it might be more fitting. Have a blessed holiday.

Sincerely K. Yocum
