Five Christmas Themes to Inspire Your Festive Decor

Some people like to bring out the same Christmas decorations year after year. I say BORING! Apart from a few favourite items, I find it much more fun to choose new Christmas themes each year – whether that’s a colour scheme or a subject to work with.

In the past I’ve had Christmas themes such as White Christmas (which was mainly white pompoms + silver birch decorations), Woodland Wonderland (felt toadstools, crochet owls and polymer clay squirrels), Bookish (with decorations and garlands made from old book pages), and more.

If you’re struggling to decide how to decorate your home this Christmas, the clever folks at Berrisford Ribbons have come up with five fun Christmas themes for a completely different feel to your decor. I wanted to share these and to suggest some creative ways you can add to them.
