Christmas Decorating Themes

Christmas Decorating ThemesAdd class to your Christmas decorations by choosing color schemes and themes to decorate upon

Decorating your home is an activity that captures the holiday spirit and reflects personal style. Choosing two main colours and building your Christmas décor around them is a great way to get maximum impact. The decorating team at Canadian Tire suggests these Christmas colour combinations to help you create a beautiful, festive space:

Enchanted Forest

Burgundy and gold form a warm, welcoming look that is contemporary and easy to achieve.


White and apple green create a romantic, modern look using pure, radiant white and apple green accents. This simple, elegant colour combination can begin with white lights and glass tree decorations and carry through to apple green candles and wreaths, such as the white bubble berry wreath available at Canadian Tire.

Country Get-Together

Classic holiday colours mixed with vintage style characters create a country theme. Start with a berry topiary for the table and feature snowmen and other holiday characters throughout the house. Stuffed character stocking holders add some merriment and fun to your holiday decor.


Ivory and gold create a warm atmosphere and a sense of harmony with the use of gold accents with soft ivory undertones. Canadian Tire carries a wide range of tree skirts, table runners, ornaments and candles in gold and ivory. Candles enhance the warmth of a room and invite friends and family to make themselves at home.

Winter Wonder

Turn your home into a winter wonderland using blue and white. Crisp, clean lines will offer maximum impact with minimum effort and give a modern look to your Christmas décor. Nickel and silver-plated items complement blues and bring the look together. The nickel-plated sitting reindeer and large silver candleholders at Canadian Tire are a great way to bring this colour combination beyond the tree.

Violet Dreams

Create a contemporary, unique look using a non-traditional colour. Violet is typically not considered a festive colour, but is a great way to bring your personal style into your holiday decorating. Violet stockings bring attention to the fireplace.

Create your own centre piece by placing a variety of purple-hued holiday decorations and balls in a clear bowl.

Mystical Evening

Make your home glow this holiday season with lights. From the outside to the inside, lights are the easy way to create a feeling of warmth. For the outside, pre-lit LED wreaths highlight your front door. In the front hallway, a pre-lit double topiary tree or cashmere pine tree in a sturdy gold pot adds elegance to your home and makes your friends and family feel immediately welcome.
