20 ideas for a blue Christmas

This year, decorate in beautiful shades of blue for the holidays, and see just how cheery a blue Christmas can be!
  • It's all in the details

    The ice-blue color scheme in this country living room includes tree decorations, balls on ribbons hanging from the curtain rod, and presents wrapped in coordinating colors. Even the items on the shelves next to the tree have been given a blue makeover. Books and boxes are covered with blue paper, and blue photo frames have been brought in for the season.

  • Meowy Christmas!

    Even Kitty needs a stocking! This pretty blue stocking has a simple band of white fur around the top, and a pretty snowflake pinned to the front. Dress up plain store-bought or hand-made stockings with fur, ribbons, and jewelry to make them your own!

  • DIY blue wreath

    Create a stunning wreath by pinning or hot-gluing ball ornaments to a foam wreath form. Use a few shades of blue, white, and silver, and choose assorted sizes. Hang from the door or a cupboard with a pretty blue ribbon, or just rest it on a chair and surround it with kittens.

  • Take note

    Make a custom memo board just for Christmas! Paint the wooden frame of a bulletin board blue, then place quilted white fabric over the cork section. Lay ribbons in a criss-cross pattern and tack with pretty push-pins at the intersections. Tack another ribbon around the outside of the cork, and hang. Tuck Christmas cards, party invitations, and favorite photos behind the ribbons.

  • Ice blue

    Don't leave those old ice skates sitting in the bottom of the sports equipment cabinet! Hang them on the door! Stuff them with mini presents, add blue pom-poms to the laces, and hang a cute ornament on the front.

  • Naturally blue

    Just before you host a party or holiday dinner, visit the florist and pick up an assortment of blue flowers. These hyacinths make a big impact! Place clear or blue marbles in the bottom of a simple column vase, add water, and insert your flowers. Simply perfect!

  • Sitting pretty

    Carry the blue theme to your dinner table by adding layered ribbons and ornaments to chairs and wrapping napkins with more ribbons and ornaments. If you're using a green tablecloth like this, include a green ornament in your chair arrangement to tie it all together.

  • Cute cupcakes

    What an adorable decoration for a country kitchen, and it couldn't be easier! A pretty blue and white ceramic cupcake pan is liked with white papers and filled with blue ball ornaments. This would make a lovely centerpiece for a breakfast table, or for a display in a hutch or on a buffet.

  • Christmas in the kitchen

    This kitchen already has a blue and white theme, so dolling it up for Christmas is easy. Add a holiday towel, a display of mini trees and greenery, and a row of silvery trees in the window, and you're all set!

  • Keep it simple

    This pretty tree has several different shaped ornaments, but they all follow the same color scheme of baby blue, silver, and white, and they are tied to the tree with blue ribbons. The stockings are made from coordinating fabric, the presents are wrapped in white and blue, and even the throw pillows match.

  • Crisp and clean

    These decorations are beautiful hanging from dining room chairs, or even from the front door. Use flocking spray to give pinecones a dusting of "snow" and attach them to long ribbons. Tie a cluster of them together and hang!

  • Merry monograms

    Blue fabric featuring the initial of the family name makes a lovely table runner, topped with a plain gold linen embroidered with the initial. Make miniature versions for the chairs, with the first name initial of the person who sits there. The mantle features tree-like cones made from shiny scrapbook paper.

  • Santas and stars

    A folk-style star quilt hung over the mantle makes the perfect backdrop for this collection of Santa figurines. A few greens tucked in between their feet complete the look.

  • Collectible Christmas

    This is such a pretty way to display a collection! Rows of blue and white stoneware pitchers fill this rustic hutch. The patterns are all different, but the pitchers have the same color scheme and are the same shape and size, so they go together perfectly.

  • American Christmas

    Touches of red blend beautifully with this blue and white theme, for a patriotic look. Even the antique doll, in her pretty blue dress, sits happily on a vintage red chair.

  • Blue bottles

    Welcome guests to your home by lighting a window box with blue bottles and clear jars filled with candles. (For safety's sake and to avoid the wind blowing them out, use battery-operated votives.) Just be sure to bring them in before bed, so the glass won't be exposed to the elements for too long.

    Having a blue Christmas never tasted so good! Make this cocktail with vodka or rum, whichever you prefer!
