What is Your Christmas Decor Theme?

What is your theme for Christmas decor?

Mine is Blue, white and silver. Snowflakes and snowmen. I have snowglobes and snowman all over the shelves.






I had a thread from 2005 for this, but, it wouldn't let me bump it up. Shows at off topic chat when I find it in a search?? So I did a new one.

I don't put up Christmas decorations before remembrance day, it is considered rude. It takes away from their day. I know many soldiers and am related to many, Nick is also one.

Really Saph? Considered rude by whom? My Dad was a WW2 vet and I never heard him complain about that ever.

I think TG was just asking what people's themes would be, not when they put up their decorations. I know how staunchly she is behind her country's troops and I would hate for her to get the mistaken impression that you are critical. I know you aren't, so I'm hoping this will clear things up for you both.

I don't really have a "theme" but the colors I concentrate on are a deep wine red and gold trim....I guess I would call it a classic/traditional look...?
This is actually the first year in many many many years I am actually starting to feel the spirit again!

i don't really do a tree anymore. have a huge fake ficus and i put lights and garland on it, i call it my california christmas tree. i have a lot of wreaths and those go up. have one metal tree for kitchen table that has lace angels on it, i made it. theme is cottage, kinda old fashioned things. i have to get really into spirit, to do more, cause only me to admire it.

I have to agree with Alix - this isn't a "when" question but a "theme/color" question. So, say it's AFTER Remembrance Day Saph - do you have a theme?

My theme is ANYTHING as, while I love to have everything decorated I hate doing it. One year, ok, TWO YEARS!...I put lights and garland on the tree and that's all It still looked good and I didn't have to put ANY decorations up after!!

Mostly I do red/green/gold/a bit of lime green/white...there's a few other colors in there...I guess you could say it's all pretty traditional except for the lime green...I bought a few things last year that were "limey" and loved how it brightened everything up!
