Wintry White, Blue and Silver Christmas Tree

This wintry white, blue and silver Christmas tree uses blue, white and silver ornaments, ribbon and crystal ornaments to create a sparkly holiday scene.

Since blue is my favorite color and most of the rooms in my house have some shade of blue in them, it probably isn’t a surprise that my Christmas tree theme also uses blue.

The only problem?

I’ve done a lot of blue Christmas trees in the past (like this blue, white and gold tree, and this blue and white tree).

And I don’t want this year’s tree to look the same as my previous trees.

So this year I decided to create a different look by focusing on a wintry feel.

But before we get into the details of my Christmas tree…

The Decorations

As I mentioned above, I wanted to do a wintry theme so I decided to go with blue, white and silver as my color theme. With a lot of glass and crystal ornaments for that icy look.

I also bought myself a flocked Christmas tree.

Since it goes with the wintry theme (and I’ve been wanting one for ages), I figured this was the year to get one.

How To Decorate A Wintry White, Blue and Silver Christmas Tree

how to decorate a winter white, blue and silver christmas tree

1 | Add Ribbon

As usual, I started out with some ribbon that I wove in and out of the branches.

To make it look more natural, I don’t put the ribbon on in horizontal lines around the tree.

And I have parts of it sticking out from the tree while other parts are tucked into the branches so you can’t see it.

2 | Hang Large Ball Ornaments

Next up is some large ball ornaments.

I started with some white and silver ones that I pushed further into the center of the tree.

These help to reflect the lights making the tree seem to glow.

Then I hung blue, white and silver balls all around the outside of the tree, trying to space the colors out evenly.

3 | Add Specialty Ornaments

Next I hung all of my special blue and white ornaments like my favorite ginger jars and some large blue and white bells.

Longer finial ornaments add some variation in shape.

4 | Hang Crystal and Glass Ornaments

To create that wintry feeling, I hung lots of long clear glass ornaments which look like icicles.

5 | Tie Bows On The Branches

To add some more softness to the tree, I tied white and silver bows to the end of the branches.

6 | Add The Tree Topper

Since my tree is almost as tall as my ceiling, a traditional tree topper always looks too crowded.

So I went with a non-traditional version.

With a bunch of silver butterfly ornaments leading up to the top of the tree.

The Finishing Touches

To keep the color theme going, I put down a blue tree skirt (which is just a piece of fabric I had lying around).

One of my blue and white garden stools with a white lantern on top helps to tie the tree in with the rest of the room.
