It’s almost the holiday season, and that means it’s time to choose from the best Christmas decoration theme ideas! Find the new perfect Christmas decor theme for your house this year with these helpful tips.
One of the best parts of the holiday season is choosing a theme for all your decorations. Although it’s perfectly fine to repeat the same decor year after year, I love coming up with a unique Christmas tree theme each year!
The thrill of selecting the perfect decorations and coordinating color scheme adds another layer of festive cheer! However, the holiday season takes on extra importance now that blogging has become part of my life.
I know this is not for everybody. There were many years when I used the same decorations repeatedly, and nothing is wrong with that. But, in case you are looking for new Christmas tree inspiration, I have gathered some fantastic trees from a wide range of themes to inspire you!
In this post, I want to help you find the perfect theme for your tree with these festive Christmas tree themes! I promise you’ll leave with a little extra holiday cheer and some great new ideas…
How to Choose the Perfect Christmas Decoration Theme
Before you begin, it’s important to take inventory of what decorations you have and can reuse with your tree decorating this year. This will help narrow down what you may need to purchase to accomplish the look you are after.
Consider your current supplies
- A Christmas tree (or several)
- Christmas tree ornaments
- Tree topper
- Tree skirt (or some kind of a tree box or collar)
- Wreaths or garlands
- Christmas lights or candles
- Assorted decor
While I adore the authenticity of real Christmas trees, we opt for artificial ones because they fit snugly into my DIY Christmas tree stands without any concerns about water retention. In addition, I can leave the trees up for an extended amount of time.
Identify the spaces to decorate
Think about the areas you’d like to decorate. Are you leaning towards a minimalist approach, concentrating on the living room and family room? Or do you aim to infuse the entire house with a full dose of Christmas spirit?
Here are some spaces to consider:
- Front door
- Fireplace mantel
- Front porch
- Living room
- Dining room
Choose a color scheme
Take a look at some of the color schemes I’ve provided, and then assess the decorating supplies you already have that can be reused. Afterward, it’s time to either go shopping for new decorations or start crafting! You know me, I am all about crafting and creating my own decorations. You can frequently repurpose or paint your existing ball ornaments or create fresh ones from scratch to add a unique, personal touch.

I didn’t want to overwhelm you with too many dreamy Christmas trees, but trust me—it’s worth it!
Bright and Cheery Trees
If you love bright and Cheery, you need to meet my friend Jen @tatertotsandjello. She has such a unique style and has decorated some of the most beautiful trees I have seen. Turquoise and red, Disco Balls and Falalalalla trees to make you smile.
These colorful themes are a fun twist on classic Christmas decor, and you can easily take them to the next level! I’d love to see a gingerbread house Christmas tree with pale pastel candies. The young children would be absolutely thrilled by this!
This theme is perfect for those who have a fondness for all things vintage. Revive the classic ornaments and vibrant, retro-colored trees. Choose a white or pink tree and adorn it with candy-hued decorations and ornaments. Embrace the whimsical charm, and don’t concern yourself with realism – that’s precisely the intention. It’s a joyful, vibrant color palette that adds a playful touch!
White Winter Wonderland Christmas Trees
The white winter wonderland theme is a classic! There are so many ways to decorate for this theme, and since they all match, you really can’t go wrong!
With wintery whites and festive florals, Michele @vintagehomedesigns has creatively captured the magical essence of the season with her all-white tree. Meanwhile, Jenn and Josh @downshiloaroad created a genuinely awe-inspiring holiday display with pinecones galore! It’s no surprise that these trees resemble a magazine cover.
If you want to try a cozy white color scheme this year, consider pairing it with metallics or a bold color. I love the mix of white decorations, like flocked garlands and white wooden trinkets. Pair lots of white ornaments with silver ornaments or gold baubles. I love the idea of adding green ornaments for a little pop of color. Just add in some rich textures to complete the look!
Give basic white baubles a touch of glam by adding gold leaf!
Bright and Blue Christmas Trees
You all know how much I love blue. And this delightful tree from Lynn @livinglargeinasmallhouse is no exception! Coco’s soft sweet treat tree brings a gentle pastel theme to any space. I’m smitten with its simple beauty. The glow of Kylie’s tree is so pretty with the tradition of tinsel and its bright-colored ornaments.
Last year, I had a nine-foot King Douglas fir slim tree in my dining room. I took my collection of blue flow china and hung it on the tree. It’s such a nice way to add a blue accent color without making the space feel too cold. You can read about how I decorated my blue and white Christmas tree here. In addition I had a blue and white Noble fir tree with mini blue and white lamp shades on my candles.
Rustic Christmas Trees
Nature’s brilliance never disappoints! I have a deep affection for trees adorned with the wonders of the outdoors—branches, twigs, pine cones, red berries, and dried fruit. Rachel’s commitment to eco-friendly tree decorations, featuring dried oranges (learn how to dry them here), and the natural flair brought by my talented friends Robyn, Jennifer, Stacy, and Kim, make them the true gifts of this holiday season.
Robyn’s artistic touch stands out with a delightful array of green wrapping paper on the presents, seamlessly tying the entire theme together!
The possibilities within this theme are endless. My family room tree takes on a garden-inspired charm, nestled in a wheelbarrow and adorned with all things related to gardening. Starting with an 8′ flocked tree from King of Christmas, we’ve hung large watering cans, birdhouses, garden tools, mushroom ornaments, and more. The details are too numerous to capture in photos; you’ll have to click the link to get the full scoop—it’s even more enchanting in person!
This year, I’m crafting a few rustic trees, embracing natural materials, woodland creature ornaments, dried oranges, and lots of charming details.
Farmhouse Christmas Trees
Jessica from Itty Bitty Farmhouse and Rachel from The Ponds Farm House are two inspiring bloggers who have transformed their farmhouses into wonderlands this festive season. Jessica has brought the charm of a ski lodge to her guest bedroom through a lovely tree! Meanwhile, Rachel’s bold choice of decorating with turquoise & dried hydrangeas is sure to make you swoon.
Traditional Christmas Trees
There’s something to be said for a traditional Christmas tree. I love a classic red and green color scheme, especially with pops of white or even gold ornaments. Pull out all the traditional Christmas decorations like candy canes, jingle bells, evergreen wreaths, and more.
For a traditional style, choose rich colors like burgundy and forest green. Doesn’t that sound beautiful? With a bit of luxurious velvet ribbon and glimmering metallic ornaments? This simple design is timeless and will always be on trend!
