Nordic Christmas themes
Adding a Scandinavian touch to your home can help to keep things simple and elegant. Naturalistic materials can create a minimalist and clean feel.
A typical fir-style artificial Christmas tree is ideal. There will be no needles around the home, but the same full-looking tree that looks like it’s come straight from a forest. Scented tree ornaments and sticks can add a pine fragrance to enhance the realness of the tree.
Next, add lights – lots of lights. Keep it minimalistic again though with dainty LEDs that twinkle and sparkle. Warm white can create a lovely ambience. Tree skirts can also be ideal for a Nordic Christmas theme, but do you go for brown or grey?
White or metallic baubles of different sizes spread across the tree look simple but effective amongst a few pinecone or snowflake decorations. Oh, and pop a grey gonk to the top of the tree to stick with the Nordic Christmas theme.
Just as the song suggests, you can have blue Christmas themes in your home if you like. Think magical, wintry, crisp and clear blue to reflect the night sky. Add in silver and white to symbolise stars and snow.
Textured and shiny or matte-finished baubles can add a designer look to your tree, or go all out with glitter for some glitz and glam.
A snow-flocked style tree or evergreen would be ideal to hang the baubles from. As well as twinkling icy white lights to represent a starry sky.
Candy Cane Christmas theme
The in Christmas themes this year have to includecandy cane. Red and white swirls are all the rage for the festive period.
Pop some red and white LED Christmas present lights under the tree, with a red and white theme for the baubles too.
No candy cane theme would be complete with the sweets themselves. Drape them over branches for a sweet treat.
