Lovely Christmas Decorating Themes

Updated on March 21, 2011

Christmas is a great time to work on your decorating skills. It is so hard to get into the Christmas holiday without decorations, so be sure to get into the spirit with your decor. Decorating during the holiday season can be simple if you use a Christmas decorating theme. By choosing a theme you are giving yourself a starting point and a vision to guide your decorating. Having this vision can make the whole process a lot easier.

Winter Wonderland

The Winter Wonderland theme is perfect for the Christmas holiday. This elegant theme is done mostly in white or ivory with blue, red, green, gold, or silver as accent colors. The theme should consist of miniature villages in snowy white or ivory. Angels are wonderful to add to this theme as well as they are usually in coordinating colors.

One of the most important elements in this theme is the snow. The winter wonderland theme is not complete without snow. To get a snowy look, try using faux snow inside. If you cannot find the sparkling faux snow at a holiday outlet, then simply use craft stuffing and spray it with a clear glitter spray to get a holiday look. Spread it around your decorated areas for extra flair. For your windows, consider buying canned snow and only spraying the edges and corners. This will give your windows an authentic look for the holiday.

Santa's Workshop

If you have children or grandchildren, this theme is the best. With the Santa's Workshop theme, you should decorate with Santa and elf figurines and dolls. Colors like burgundy, navy, gold, and hunter green work best for this theme. The theme is very classic and antique looking, so be sure to stick with that type of decor.

Greenery and garland works wonderfully for this theme. To give the kids something to do and the greenery a little decorative help, consider stringing popcorn and cranberries onto a long string. After stringing them, hang them with your garland for a lovely holiday look. The children will love to help and you can have extra decor because of their hard work.

Presents Galore

This theme is completely centered on gifts. Wrap faux gifts in lovely coordinating paper and place them everywhere. Choosing metallic papers is a great option for your holiday decor. Just be sure to keep them separate from the real gifts. It would be a shame for someone to open an empty box on Christmas morning. The gifts can even be used on your porch for added decor.

After choosing your Christmas decorating theme, you should start planning right away. Each year you can choose a different Christmas decorating theme or you can simply add on to your constant theme each year, making it bigger and better. Themes are a great way to decorate and can really provide you with decorating direction, which is best for beginners. Use these examples of Christmas decorating themes to get you started on your holiday decor.
