Decorating your home for Christmas is a treasured tradition, but that doesn’t mean the decor itself needs to be traditional. Choosing a theme allows you to get creative with the tree and puts a little extra pizazz into the season. With so many wonderful ideas and colour themes available, how do you choose just one?

Choose a Starting Point

Start with one inspiration item. Maybe you’ve seen a garland that feels exactly right, or perhaps you recently found a tree topper that made your heart skip a beat. In that case, you don’t need to find a theme – your theme already found you.

Make It Merry and Bright

For families with young children, a bright, eclectic, handmade theme may be just the thing. Start with a crisp red and white combo, and mix in a bit of aqua and lime green to create a fresh take on traditional colors.

Focus on Collections

Collectors have ready-made themes. These themes can be quirky or elegant or vintage – just like the collections that inspire them. For example, if flamingos are your thing, incorporate them into your tree and wreaths – even the stockings can reflect your passion.

Create a Secret Garden

Consider your family’s interests and hobbies. For example, if you’re avid gardeners or conservationists, you could base your theme on a lush variety of greens and a tweak of brown, accented with metallic bits.

Common Threads

Evaluate your favorite decorations, looking for common threads. What colours do you favor? What textures? When you come to understand what your favorite pieces have in common, you can add new items and display the old ones in new ways that create a theme you’re sure to love.
