Inverted Christmas Tree

The upside-down Christmas tree is actually a centuries-old custom that’s been popping up on the blogosphere of late. And it clears up floor space. (If you’re adapting a traditional tree, it’s easiest if you mount it to the ceiling first and then decorate.) Think of the Instagramming.

Get the look: Northlight 36-inch hanging tree ($23); Christmas Tree Market 7-foot tree ($139); Kurt Adler 7.5-foot pre-lit tree

An Understated Kwanzaa Centerpiece

The African celebration of the harvest’s signature colors of black, red and green are swapped for a quieter palette of brown and gold with this corn centerpiece (see the DIY instructions here).

Get the look: Libbey vase ($14); Candle Impressions LED pillar ($13); Gempler's jute twine ($3)

The Deconstructed Wreath

The super-stiff, symmetrical wreaths of yore have been updated to be looser and hipper. Order a fresh one from a local craftsperson, make one from dried flowers or buy a pre-made wreath and take elements off it.

Get the look: Moon Canyon fresh wreath (from $100); National Tree Company artificial birch wreath ($87); West Elm LED wreath ($55)

Lights Climb The Wall

Wrap a string of lights in a zigzag triangle up and down your wall with some driftwood and you’ll never have to deal with all those dropped fir needles again.

Get the look: Midwest Seasons three-stand LED lights ($17); Restoration Hardware illuminated peace sign ($59)

Minimalist Menorah

Not your mother’s Judaica: A sleek slab of marble or metal is simple and pretty, and it goes with any decor.

Get the look: Crate & Barrel ($50); West Elm ($69); Brad Ascalon ($275)

Mistletoe and Citrus Centerpiece

A mistletoe-and-Meyer-lemon-topped table runner looks lovely and is half edible (Meyer lemons are delish). If you have small children and pets who like to eat everything in sight, use a leaf garland purchased at your local Christmas-tree lot.

Get the look: Whole Foods Meyer lemons (market price); Tina’s Trees garland (market price); Crate & Barrel table runner ($30)
