This year, it seems that flowers are a fantastic alternative to typical Christmas tree decor. With a little color and planning, people are transforming their spruce plant into tall, colorful bouquets. The added blooms provide an unexpected and beautiful touch to the dark green branches. This fresh and natural aesthetic is a contemporary take on the glass bulbs and tinsel we're so used to seeing, proving that unconventional furnishings can reinvigorate holiday traditions.

If you're interested in trimming your own floral Christmas tree, a couple of tutorials will help you get started. Martha Stewart and Design Love Fest have created DIYs that'll show you the tools (both suggest faux blooms), process, and inspiration for your tree. Ultimately though, the choices in colors, flowers, and arrangements are yours, and these plants can be decorated to fit your design scheme and taste. Check out some other gorgeous floral Christmas trees, below.
