Traditional Christmas trees are green, and chances are that you’ve heard of or even seen a white Christmas tree. But have you ever seen a black Christmas tree? It turns out that black trees are all the rage this holiday season. “Good Morning America” reports that searches for black trees on Wayfair.com are up 70 percent compared to last year.
While it’s certainly not conventional, I have to say I like the idea. There’s something cool and chic about a black tree, and it could be the perfect centerpiece for a “Nightmare Before Christmas” theme.
My friend had a black Christmas tree several years ago, and it really put an edgy twist on the normal holiday decor. In fact, she liked the look so much that she ended up keeping it up all year!
If you’re the type who likes a little Christmas spirit but can do without all of the glittery red and green decorations, a black tree can be a great way to be a little festive without going full-on “Elf.”
Check out Instagrammer @jasmine_theskinwtich’s black tree adorned with sparkly silver ornaments and white lights:
“Black Christmas trees are not only a unique statement piece, but they have their own mystical presence,” Julie Cassetina, a spokesperson for Wayfair, told “Good Morning America” of the odd appeal of black trees. “[They] really help ornaments and string lights pop. You could deck them out with lighter colored ornaments that’ll really stand out against the black, or simply add delicate, white string lights that almost create a feeling of evergreens at night in the wilderness.”
