12 Days of Christmas_Decorating Themes and Ideas for the Holidays
We’re days away from Christmas, and if you still haven’t finished your preparations, worry no more! Join us as we count down the holidays with these decorating themes and ideas, inspired by our blogger friends from our 12 Days of Christmas campaign.

Sweet and Sugary

Perfect for the kids’ favorite hideout, this Clifton Pine was set on the loft and decorated with wood sugar candy and mini-snowbirds. Jaime of Jaime Costiglio added a touch of elegance to this fun flocked tree with silver glass finials and the Bethlehem star tree topper. A silver satin and sequin tree skirt completed the tree’s snowy look.

Classic Christmas

Nothing welcomes Christmas like a red front door decorated with beautiful lifelike evergreen. Alli of An Alli Event went with the quick and easy route by simply hanging the pre-lit Christmas Classics wreath and garland pair on her front porch.

Red, White, and Black

Add a twist to traditional colors by mixing them with other classic combinations. Lydi of Lydi Out Loud draped her color-changing Deluxe Noble Fir Snap Tree with a black and white plaid ribbon, and the Winter Delight Classic Red Finials with white ribbon ornament hangers. She finished the look with a plush and gorgeous red Quilted Velvet tree skirt.

French Farmhouse

Mix fresh and faux elements to create an elegant farmhouse theme. Lory of Designthusiasm set up the Kennedy Fir in the corner of the family room, right next to the fresh cedar branches on her mantel. Topped with the Amazing Grace angel and finished with our burgundy and gold skirt at the base, the tree is decorated with burgundy and gold glass balls and finials, pewter poinsettia picks, magnolia leaves, and white-tipped pinecones.

Pink, Purple, and Vintage

If you have limited space for a tree, worry no more. Anita of the Cedar Hill Farmhouse set the Murphy’s Flatback tree on her living room without rearranging furniture. She used silver, purple, and pink ornaments and then added the Holiday Heirloom ornament set for a vintage touch. A regal looking Silent Night angel is set on top of the tree for a complete holiday look.

Simple and Sentimental

Make decorating for the holidays a special family affair. Allison of Loving Living Lancaster had her parents and son help decorate the Deluxe Noble Fir Snap tree with classic glass ball ornaments in silver, gold, red, and green. A gold sequin tree skirt matches the living room décor, while the Silent Night Angel tree topper presides over the cozy family scene.

Snowy Glam

Susie of The Chelsea Project proves creating a snowy look on a green tree without flocking is indeed, possible. The combination of gold, copper, and creamy white tones combined with champagne finials give this Heritage Balsam Spruce a wintry look. Yards of billowing gold ribbon and sparkly silver gift wrappers add shimmer, while a star tree topper and gold tree skirt bring the perfect finishing touch to this dreamy tree.

Elegant and Festive

Impress your guests by turning your dining room into a memorable entertaining space with beautiful wreaths and garlands. Laura of Pet Scribbles set a Venetian Elegance wreath on a distressed farmhouse windowpane mirror and matched it with a garland on her mantel. She loved the look so much that she used a second pair on her dining room cabinet!

Merry, Bright, and Green

Bring more cheer to the traditional Christmas evergreen by using a brighter palette. Emily of Eleven Gables used a bright green ribbon topper, and let the tail ends cascade down her slim Kennedy Fir tree. Mixed with her family’s own collection of vintage ornaments, the Merry and Bright ornament set brings more color to this fun centerpiece.

Traditional Southern

Make your guests feel right at home with a beautiful tree in the guest room. Shirley of Housepitality Designs goes back to her warm Southern roots by setting up the narrow Kennedy Fir decorated with the Merry and Bright ornament collection in the guest room. Her collection of Dept. 56 Dickens Village depicts the figures in the well-loved 12 Days of Christmas song, and the luxurious red quilted tree skirt adds to the cozy ambience.

Christmas Blues

Chase away the holiday blues by decorating in unexpected spaces. Cindy of Edith and Evelyn Vintage dressed an antique Italian mirror with the lush Woodlands Deluxe garland, accented by blue glass ball ornaments and gold finials. She complemented its matching Woodlands Deluxe wreath with blue poinsettia that’s set on the dining table as an elegant centerpiece.

Red and White Silent Night

Be inspired by beloved Christmas carols and add your personal touches to create a memorable theme. Jennifer of The Heart Comes Home topped her red and white 10-foot tree with the Silent Night Angel, while she kept things simple with the Classic Fraser Fir wreath above her fireplace, and a matching garland over her mantel.

Finally, you can choose a traditional or unconventional holiday theme that surely fits your home. Make Christmas decorating fun and unforgettable for you and your loved ones this season.
