Six Stunning Christmas Decorating Themes You’ll Want to Recreate

Your signature style is what makes you uniquely you. Everything from your go-to jeans to your new throw pillows are a chance to leave your own mark on the world around you — and holiday decorating is no exception. Get inspired by how some of our favorite bloggers turn their senses of style into unique Christmas tree themes. Whether you’re cozy and casual or bold and bright, it’s time to let your style sing.

Enchanted by the Forest

Warm evenings by the fire. Long strolls in misty woods. Bundling up in soft sweaters. If you prefer a quaint cabin over a beachfront condo, you’ll be entranced by these ideas.

Courtney of French Country Cottage's Colorado Mountain Spruce

Courtney of French Country Cottage recommends a simple color palette of silver and white to evoke the dreamy hush of a snowy landscape. She added a few key accents to her Balsam Hill Colorado Mountain Spruce™, like pops of red berries to complete the look. Try it yourself with our Woodland Ornament Set.

Laura of Finding Home's Nantucket Blue Spruce Instant Evergreen

For a more modern take, break out dazzling red decorations. Laura of Finding Home scattered forest animals throughout her Nantucket Blue Spruce Instant Evergreen™ but kept the color scheme to just three choices so her decorations would stand out. Don’t forget to layer your ornament sizes to keep the eye interested.

Christina of Christina’s Adventures' Vermont White Spruce

Our Vermont White Spruce is the perfect backdrop for our Silver and Gold Ornaments, as Christina of Christina’s Adventures shows. Wrap your tree with homey touches, like a burlap garland and a Wine Barrel Rolling Tree Stand, for a bit of rustic elegance.

Bursting with Color

Your favorite color can make you feel inspired, mellow, or just plain happy. Use your personal hue as the focal point to express your holiday style.

Geraldine of Little Big Bell’s Royal Blue Spruce

Geraldine of Little Big Bell’s ombre-inspired tree mixes old-fashioned ornament details with bold swathes of color. To get the look, start with the majestic Royal Blue Spruce and add color-coordinated globes and stars from the Georgetown Ornament set. For maximum impact, choose the understated Lodge Faux Fur Tree Skirt.

Cami of Tidbits' Denali White Christmas Tree

Bold, unexpected, breathtaking — you’ll receive never-ending compliments when you create a tree like this spectacular one from Cami of Tidbits. Her Denali White Christmas Tree is an elegant canvas for colorful-yet-understated pastel ornaments, blue ribbon, and ice-blue picks. The gentle warmth of our Fiber Optic Angel Tree Topper is the perfect finishing touch.

Heather of At the Picket Fence's Vermont White Spruce

Heather of At the Picket Fence loves shades of blue, and her stunningly decorated Vermont White Spruce™ shows that red and green aren’t the only Christmas-worthy colors. Choose blue, white, and gold in similar shades to lend depth and drama to your tree.

A Blizzard of Beauty

Don a pompom beanie, get wrapped up in a knitted scarf, and take in winter’s wonders. These stylish bloggers effortlessly bring the beauty of the outdoors inside.

Erin of Sunny Side Up's Frosted Fraser Fir

Erin of Sunny Side Up created this elegant take on a classically trimmed tree by wrapping a Frosted Fraser Fir in antiqued, beaded snowflakes and silver and gold orbs. Get the same look by keeping your color palette neutral while adding subtle metallic touches.

Melaine of My Sweet Savannah's Frosted Fraser Fir

For her take on a flocked tree, Melaine of My Sweet Savannah combined the Frosted Fraser Fir with handmade deer ornaments. Add a down-home touch to your tree by anchoring it in a galvanized bucket.

Kristin of My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia's King Mountain Pine

You can create a frosty look without a flocked tree — just take notes from Kristin of My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, who festooned her King Mountain Pine with shimmery highlights. Choose snowflakes and balls in sparkling silver and mix them with crystalline lace-like ornaments that will catch the light.

Vintage Treasures

If your perfect weekend involves searching for trinkets from bygone eras, spangle your tree with heirloom-worthy treasures.

Jeanne Oliver's Nantucket Blue Spruce

Jeanne Oliver transformed her Nantucket Blue Spruce into a travelogue by styling it with souvenirs from trips to Mexico and Europe. Recreate the same nostalgic look with subtly sparkly pinecones, striped red ribbons, flea market finds, and lustrous touches like our Winter Wishes Ornament Set.

Melaine of My Sweet Savannah's Frosted Fraser Fir

Mix your own treasured ornaments with vintage-inspired ornaments, like Melaine of My Sweet Savannah does. Add a handcrafted element with the Snowhaven Glass Ornament Set.

Ashley of Handmade Home's Vermont White Spruce Flip Tree

Ashley of Handmade Home creates a timelessly elegant tree by mixing large, classic ornaments in pastel hues. She topped her handsome Vermont White Spruce Flip Tree with a shimmering Star Beaded Tree Topper bedecked in sequins and pearls.

Farmhouse Fabulous

Leave your wellies and fresh eggs by your farmhouse table and head into the living room for an old-fashioned tree trimming.

Marian of Miss Mustard Seed’s Noble Fir

Marian of Miss Mustard Seed’s homey tree is just the thing for a farmhouse Christmas. Recreate this rustic look with wooden bead garlands, warm Christmas tree candles, and buffalo check ribbons strewn throughout a Noble Fir.

Sarah of Sarah Joy's Calistoga Fir Slim Pre Fluffed Tree

Give your old novels new life this Christmas, just as Sarah of Sarah Joy did: She printed a festive message on the worn pages of an old tome and strung the pages into a garland for her Calistoga Fir Slim Pre Fluffed Tree.

Kristine of The Painted Hive's Fraser Fir

Try a combination of locally-handcrafted and homemade ornaments, just as Kristine of The Painted Hive did with her sweet and simple tree. She chose a small Fraser Fir for her cozy space and used a neutral palette and wooden touches for a pastoral look.

Ready to Glow

Life is too short not to sparkle and shine. These bloggers are the masters of glittery glow.

Karianne of Thistlewood Farms' Norway Spruce Narrow Tree

Karianne of Thistlewood Farms combines texture with shades of white, gold, and platinum for a tree that truly shines. The Norway Spruce Narrow Tree, with its deep green needles, is the perfect foil for brilliant embellishments.

Courtney of French Country Cottage's Sanibel Spruce

A Sanibel Spruce is ideal for tree trimmers who love big, bold ornaments. Courtney of French Country Cottage hung hers with antiqued French Country Ornaments and snowy picks. Wrapping the tree in gold ribbon adds another chance to catch warm light.

Beth of Unskinny Boppy's Brilliant Bordeaux Ornament Set and Christmas Tree Garland

The timeless trio of red, green, and gold is a perennial favorite, as Beth of Unskinny Boppy shows. Choose handpainted red-and-gold ornaments, like our Brilliant Bordeaux Ornament Set, and wrap the tree with the delicate gold tones of our Jeweled Christmas Tree Garland. Clear, twinkling lights complete the look.
