How Do I Choose a Color Theme for My White Christmas Tree?


Choose a color or group of colors to decorate your white Christmas tree. The color should complement your style, decor and personality, as well as make you feel joyful and full of the Christmas spirit. Disregard any preconceived notions about what colors are or are not acceptable for Christmas decorating, then ask yourself a series of questions to determine what color would be best to adorn your white Christmas tree.

  • Decide where you'll set up your white Christmas tree. Look around that room to determine what colors and style it's decorated with. For example, is it modern, minimalist, country or Victorian? What colors are prominent in the room? What colors would clash with the room? If the room is lime green and white, red decorations on your white Christmas tree will probably look strange.

  • Ask yourself: Do if you want the tree to fit into the room's decor, or contrast with the decor completely?

  • Determine what colors put you in a holiday mood. For example, if the room has some pink, and you love the color pink, but pink makes you think of anything besides Christmas, it may not be the right color to use. Or, try combining the color, such as pink, with another color that does feel more like Christmas to you, such as silver or gold.

  • Use your favorite decoration as the inspiration to determine what color, or colors, you'll decorate your white Christmas tree with. If you have no idea what color you'd like to use, but your favorite ornament is a blue and silver star, use blue and silver.

  • Consider decorating the tree with a particular Christmas theme. For example, a monochromatic tree decorated in all white, or white and silver, would be perfect if you enjoy a minimalist style and use a "white wonderland" theme. Or, green, red and gold could liven up your white tree to make it feel more traditional.

  • Choose the color or colors that you like the best, or agree on as a family. A white Christmas tree can be stunning, warm and welcoming with nearly any color you choose because it provides a neutral base (white) to build upon. Pink, purple, green, red, gold, blue, silver, turquoise or even lime green decorations can be used.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use lights, bulbs, toppers, candy, tinsel, garland or any other decorations to enhance the tree.
