blue themed christmas tree
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!

- Our tree is a 7’5″ tall, flocked Christmas tree from King of Christmas. It’s pre-lit with 750 lights. This is my first flocked tree and I am hooked – hook, line and sinker. I’m amazed at what a difference the white snow makes with the lights and ornaments! Every color pops, every light looks soft and glowy and the entire effect is whimsical, soft and full of Christmas magic.
- Ornaments on the flocked tree are from Frontgate. They are the French Blue and Linen Designer Collection.

Every year I add something new to my holiday decor collection. If you haven’t seen my other holiday themes, be sure to check them out! I love each holiday and we celebrate it fully!
In previous years I had purchased gold decor. To make them blend, I introduced blue by using my exclusive collection of Plush Pumpkin in shades of blue and gray.
