Blue and white is a classic color combination that has always been one of my favorites! So it’s probably not much of a surprise that I decided to use it (along with some gold) for my Christmas decorations this year. I just love how the garland over the mantel and this blue, white and gold Christmas tree decor look in my living room!
Why does it always seem that Thanksgiving rolls around and I’m still looking for some inspiration for my Christmas decorations?
I think I spend so much effort decorating for Halloween that I run out of steam for Christmas…that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 🙂
So I often take the easy way out and match my Christmas decor to my room colors.
It’s pretty much a no-fail way to decorate for Christmas. It always looks beautiful!

For those of you who know me, you know that blue is my favorite color.
Pretty much every room in my house has some shade of blue in it.
But as much as I love the color blue, I have never really used it as the main color in my Christmas decorations.
So I decided this was going to be the year to go all out with a blue, white and gold color scheme.
It all started with this garland that I created over the mantel.
Of course, I couldn’t let the mantel outshine the tree, so that meant going all out with the Christmas tree decor, too.
(Actually…I really went all out with the whole room…you can see all the blue, white and gold Christmas decor HERE.)
And now on to the details of my Christmas tree.
First thing was to collect a bunch of blue and white ornaments. (You can find links to some of my favorites below).
Fortunately, blue was an “in” color this year, so I was able to find some great poinsettia clips as well as some other blue and white ornaments. (Unfortunately, they were from Pier 1 so they’re no longer available. These ones* are the closest replacement I could find).
I also found an ornament set from Frontgate (similar to this one*) that was a little more money than I normally spend.
But the ornaments are so beautiful, it was worth it!
These blue and white ginger jar ornaments* were the final elements that pulled the whole look together.
They go with all of the blue and white ginger jars in my house.
I love combining the poinsettia clips with the real thing at the bottom of the tree.
The tree holds its own with the mantel now!
It’s definitely the focal point when you come into the living room.

Since ornament designs change every year, the exact same ones that I used may not be available. In those cases, I’ve tried to find similar ones that will work.
