Maybe you have one or two ornaments in your desired theme, but your tree is looking a bit sparse. You need more than a few ornaments to make your tree seem like it has an actual theme and not a mish-mash of ornaments. How can you give your tree that finished themed look? The answer may be as simple as shopping for themed Christmas light sets.
Stringing several themed light sets on a tree makes the theme you want to create very obvious and helps you carry the theme from top to bottom. Since there are so many different options, you are sure to find lights that fit your theme perfectly.
If you are putting together a tree that reflects your sweet tooth, M&M's®lights, peppermint candy lights and gumdrop lights are all great choices. If you want to add additional lights, consider using red and white strands that mimic the pattern of peppermint candies.
If you love the Snowbabies figurines, decorate your tree to reflect the simplicity and adorable innocence of these collectibles by using soft, white twinkle lights, white and sparkley Christmas balls and streams of long white ribbons to reflect the light and maintain the look of a soft, snowy tree.
For a water themed tree, you may want to consider lights that have black labs, mallards, trout and lighthouses on them. If you prefer an ocean theme, there are flamingo, flip flop and tropical fish light sets.
Sports fans will be able to shop for lights that reflect their love of their favorite sport, from golf to football.
