Get ready to deck the halls with the sophisticated charm of blue and white chinoiserie Christmas decor, a festive twist that blends elegance with a cozy holiday vibe. From stunning chinoiserie Christmas trees to ginger jar-inspired ornaments and blue and white garlands, these ideas will turn your home into a serene winter wonderland.
It’s no secret that blue and white is my favorite color combination.
And I love Chinoiserie ginger jars.
So when I was looking for inspiration for this year’s Christmas decorations, I decided to combine the two. And went with blue and white Chinoiserie Christmas decor in my living room.
The royal blue and white color combination is so serene, peaceful and elegant that I never want to leave this room!

My starting point was a bunch of blue and white ginger jar ornaments in different sizes, some blue and white Chinoiserie ribbon and some clear icicle ornaments for a little sparkle.
Re-using these three elements throughout my living room holiday decorations made sure that everything looked coordinated.

2 | blue and white chinoiserie christmas trees
Christmas trees are always the centerpiece of my Christmas decorations.
And in this case, I decorated 3 blue and white chinoiserie Christmas trees.
One on a white Christmas tree.
One on a black Christmas tree.
And one on a blue Christmas tree. (But I think these decorations would look good on a green tree, too.)
I didn’t want them to be exactly the same, so I used different combinations of ornaments on each one.
But using the ginger jar ornaments, Chinoiserie ribbon and icicles on all of them made sure they still looked cohesive.
The stunning blue and white theme really makes the Christmas trees stand out.
3 | chinoiserie wrapping paper
Incorporating blue and white chinoiserie wrapping paper is a seamless way to extend the elegant color scheme right to the base of the Christmas tree.
To mix things up and keep the eye entertained, I also added in some solid blue and blue and white striped paper.
Then finished off each gift by tying blue and white ribbons around them.
The result is a cohesive and striking presentation that contributes to the elegant and harmonious aesthetic.
4 | simple mantel garland
Between two of the trees, I hung a pre-lit faux evergreen garland over the fireplace mantel.
This garland is one of my favorites because it’s quite full and drapes down in front of the fireplace.
To make sure it had a cohesive look, I added the same ginger jar ornaments, blue and white ribbon, and clear icicle ornaments from above.
But I didn’t want to overshadow the trees, so I kept the rest of the garland decorations simple.
5 | blue and white stockings
Under the mantel garland, I hung blue and white stockings.
They are mostly blue with white details so they add some contrast to the mostly white ornaments on the garland.
6 | chinoiserie candles
I think candles are a necessity to create a cozy and elegant atmosphere for the holidays.
On top of the mantel, I chose both real candles and battery-operated ones in different sizes and colors.
I like the ones with a built-in timer feature, which allows them to light up automatically at the same time each day. Otherwise, I forget to turn them on.
Pairing them with lanterns and mini Christmas trees creates a more dynamic and visually intriguing display.
7 | window garland
I liked the mantel garland so much that I decided to take down my curtains and put up a garland over the window.
And I think it brought the whole festive theme together.
Strings of clear beads along with icicle ornaments and blue and white Chinoiserie bows tie it in with the other decorations.
The whole display brought a cozy and elegant Christmas vibe to the room.

8 | Chinoiserie accessories
To decorate the shelves behind one of my trees, I added small blue and white Christmas trees and Chinoiserie candles as well as some ginger jars.
It helps to tie it in with the rest of the Christmas decorations. But adding in some regular decor items keeps it from looking too staged.
You could also use them to decorate a coffee table or side tables.
9 | Coordinating cushions
To bring the blue and white colors onto the furniture, I bought some inexpensive cushion covers.
I keep some extra pillow forms on hand that I can easily swap the covers on.
So I put those out on the sofa under the window.
These accessories complement the overall theme and add depth to the festive decor.
10 | White lights
The finishing touch of course is the Christmas lights.
To keep the look cohesive, I used white ones everywhere.
And put them all on a timer so that they turn on automatically every evening.
They really make the blue pop.
And the sparkle is what makes the room look so magical at night.
