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.

blue, white and silver christmas ornaments

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.

Here are some of my favorite ornaments (you can find the sources by clicking on the images):

How To Decorate A Wintry 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.

The blue and white striped ribbon isn’t available anymore, but you can achieve the same look by layering a 2.5″ wide silver ribbon on top of a 4″ wide blue ribbon.

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.

And these DIY crystal ornaments I made a couple of weeks ago are a perfect fit.

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.
