Blue Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

It’s not a secret I love all things blue and gray. So when I decided to do a blue Christmas theme for our new flocked tree this year, it didn’t surprise everyone! This Christmas I’m taking you on a tour of our home that features our blue-themed Christmas tree. To work with the golden hues I already from previous years, I mixed in my blue and silver Christmas decorating ideas along with the greenery and gold shimmering garland to make a cohesive look, with a strong emphasis on my new blue glass Christmas ornaments. I hope you enjoy the inspiration to create your own Christmas tree with blue decorations!

Tips to create a Blue Christmas Theme

  • Use ornament collections to bring a cohesive look to the tree.
  • Incorporate ribbons that emphasize color theme of your tree.
  • Layer one to two shades of ribbon for more impact.
  • Add in tree picks to add more color and fullness.
  • Use as many ornaments in similar color tones for maximum effect!

    I loved the post. I’m so glad I found you on Instagram. I also use Frontgate for all my garlands, wreaths, and outdoor decorations.
    The tree is Fabulous. I know so much time and detail went into your decorating. Happy Holidays.

      Thank you, Jenn! I’m so grateful you found me and then found my actual website! Frontgate does a great job, don’t they? I buy a little every year to add to my collection, because it is expensive but their holiday decor is really beautiful. I’m sure your home looks fantastic! And yes, it takes sooooo much time doesn’t it? That’s why I did it early this year — my goal it help (try?!) make the holidays a little less stressful!

    Your Christmas decor is absolutely stunning! And I’m loving the flocked tree. This year, I’ve decided I want to try to be “fancy” and add ribbon to our tree. 🙂 May I ask, how much ribbon did you use for your 7.5 ft tree and what width ribbon do you recommend? Thanks in advance! I look forward to seeing more pics on your blog and IG.

      Hi! Thanks for commenting and following along! For the 7.5 tree you don’t need a large width. This one is about 2″ wide. It depends on the length of the spool you’re buying but I have about 18 feet of each on my tree (give or take some). You’ll just want enough that you can fluff it out and then bring it into the inside of the tree. I always say buy more and return what you don’t need. It’s not any fun to go back for more and find it sold out!
      For my 9′ tree my ribbon is much larger, but with a 7.5′ I wouldn’t overwhelm it unless you’re looking to only do ribbon as the feature. Does that help?

    Hi! I stumbled on your page after noticing that we have the same ornaments! Which made me even more confident about our purchase. What a beautiful tree! Good idea for the ribbons so I decide to get some too except ours is more sheer than solid and a bit lighter blue and glittery. Do you think that will look okay or should I get solid. Also! May I ask what do you use to secure the ribbons on? Thank youuuu

      I think those ribbons sound gorgeous! I actually have two ribbons layered – the darker one is below and the lighter one sounds like yours in that it’s glittery. It catches the light beautifully! I think your sound really nice. The Frontgate ornaments are amazing aren’t they? The color palette would totally allow for what you picked out! I don’t think you can go wrong. To secure my ribbons I use both the branches on my artificial tree (if they are buried deep in the tree enough to wrap a small piece around without it being seen) and then floral wire. Floral wire is definitely your friend for anything to do with hanging holiday decor! Let me know if you need more details! Send me a pic of your tree – it sounds so pretty!

    Hello!! Beautiful tree!! I was wondering, where did you purchase your tree and picks, and also, how many Frontgate Ornament Sets did you purchase?

    • Kelly
      November 6, 2017

      Hi! The tree picks are actually from Michaels! The tree is from King of Christmas. And you only need one set of Frontgate Ornament Collections! It comes with A TON! Does that help? Thanks for commenting – I hope you’ll get my newsletter!

    I want to know the name of the paint color you have on the walls. It’s fabulous!

    • Kelly

      Hey Kadie! It’s Benjamin Moore Gray Wisp #1570!!! My designer chose to use the same color on the trim and ceiling making it one cohesive look which was a great effect!

    So I am loving your dining table centerpiece (and the tree is a given, totally doing that too). Do you have a shop my post for the urn and candlesticks? I found a similar vase on Pottery Barn but not in grey … thanks!

    First choose your tree. Many go for artificial trees because there are no dried pine needles to pierce the bottoms of tender feet or to have to vacuum up. Some artificial trees come pre-lit, so that eliminates the need to buy strands and strands of lights. Artificial trees are available in many different colors – white, blue, pink, as well as green – and are of varying heights and types.

    My spouse,s mother always decorated with blue tones.she has been gone for many years and our family is getting smaller and I would love to to bring a touch of “GiGi” in our new home this Christmas. Looking at Christmas ideas I came across yours and how elegant and wintery it looks and feel she would be very pleased after all these years we still have her in our thoughts especially at this time of year. I will be following your decor and see what to possibly add if anything, such a beautiful tree.happy holiday’s to you and yours
