Bows on Christmas trees are trending and I’m here for it! Think old-fashioned Christmas, Little Women inspired and very feminine. I’m talking about delicate ribbons tied up into pretty bows hanging from branch tips. Not to mention that using ribbon is a more cost effective alternative to ornaments and garland. It’s easy to personalize a tree with ribbons in your favorite color, size and style. I’m sharing my favorite ribbon bow trees that I think you are going to love!
