6 Cool Decorating Ideas for a Blue-themed Christmas
Pair it with touches of silver and you're all set!
Imagine entering a house filled with blue decor pieces and a blue Christmas tree—what would be your reaction? It's a bit surprising since some consider blue as a sad color (cue: bluer the blue, sadder than sad). It seem like a quirky choice for a merry season that's dominated by shades of red, white, and gold.
If you think about it though, it can give your home a calming vibe that's perfect for spending quality time with family and friends. It's a bonus that it can remind you of the hit movie Frozen, too! A combination of blue and silver can give your house a cool and refreshing vibe that guests would love. Let these six photos inspire you to have a blue-themed Christmas this year:
We're used to seeing pine cones as part of a centerpiece or wreath to give the home a warm, rustic touch. Create an unexpected touch in the living area by filling a woven basket with blue pieces! Check your favorite department store for these colorful pieces or you can also choose to work on a DIY project. You may simply spray paint the pine cones that you have with the shade of blue that you prefer.

There's nothing more exciting than working on fun projects that can liven up the space during the holidays. Bring out old jars and containers and paint them in different shades of blue. Leave them out to dry.
To save on costs, pick up and gather a few branches and twigs. Clean these finds and spray paint them in white. Once these twigs are dry, place them in the painted vases or jars. Complete the look by hanging blue and aqua Christmas balls.

Set the mood and vibe at home by dressing up your foyer with blue details and metallic silver touches. Create faux snow and use it to decorate the console table. Finish the look by placing a bowl of aqua Christmas balls. Add a warm touch by keeping basket of blue pillows and throws under the table.

Christmas cones are great alternatives if you don't have a space for a Christmas tree. Aside from using plain cartolina and cardboard, you can also work with colorful paper for a more festive vibe. To keep up with the theme, use hints of silver and blue as finishing touches to your cones. You may also add glitters.
