Baby Blue on Green or White Trees

If you can’t manage to buy an artificial baby blue Christmas tree, that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on the color! This shade of blue can still be predominant if you decorate your tree wisely. For instance, you can cover the tree in baby blue Christmas lights that will hide most of the tree’s original color. The light coming from the LEDs will create the optical illusion of a blue tree. You can also opt for ornaments in shades of pale, icy blues and silver, which work with blue lights or white on any color of tree.

Blue and gold Christmas trees are probably one of the easier combinations to achieve because even if you lack the given golden ornaments, you can always opt for simple warm Christmas tree lights to achieve the contrasting effect. You can also invest in something like gold ribbon or even spray paint some of your favorite tree ornaments and give them a nice golden finish.

Sometimes, you don’t need to buy navy blue Christmas tree decorations. If you already know that this is the color theme you’ll be using for many Christmases to come, why not just buy a tree that’s navy blue at its very core? This way, you can always achieve that chromatic perfection in a beautiful deep shade of blue and you won’t have to worry about further investing in ornaments. That does, however, tie you down to a blue tree for the upcoming years.

Play with Tone & Texture

The blue I think of when I hear “blue and gold” is probably different from the blue you think of. Same for gold! It’s easy to change the mood of an established color pairing by tinkering with the intensity. Do you want a deep bronze set off with bright teal and turquoise, or maybe an icy blue with a pale vintage glimmer, or a deep and rustic nature-inspired assortment of dusty blues and muted earth tones? They’re all gorgeous options, and they’re not the only ones. Play with your favorite shades and see what strikes your fancy.

Adding texture is also a great way to work different shades of blue and gold together. Matte ornaments with shimmery ribbon, or icicle ornaments with rustic glittered jute, for example, will help add depth to your decor. Try tinsel garland, straw ornaments, geometric ornaments, or even feathers to add interest and texture.

Some of the most beautiful Christmas trees are decorated with ornaments in shades of royal blue. The deep, intense hue plays well with all neutrals, but particularly with white to create a crisp, elegant palette. This example is a Christmas tree that combines a bold white and silver backdrop (courtesy of a flocked tree and assorted white and silver ornaments) for an abundance of royal blue globes. You aren’t limited to round ornaments, of course! This tree would be equally (or dare we say, even more) gorgeous with royal glittered poinsettias.

Blue and Red Christmas Tree Ideas

Cherry on Top

Truth be told, you’re not going to come across a lot of blue and red Christmas trees. For one, it’s less Christmassy than it is patriotic, and both blue and red are most often paired with neutrals or metallics (and red-and-green is quite traditional). But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Red and blue colors schemes are ideal for nautical trees, for example, or fresh palettes of bright turquoise or aqua and cherry red for a contemporary feel.

If you are a true patriot, then you’ll surely love the idea of buying an artificial Christmas three that proudly wears the colors of the American flag.

Bottom Line

Blue is one of the most popular colors for decorating Christmas trees. Not only is the color beautiful to look at in itself, but it can easily be combines with a variety of other colors, from red to shiny silver. When you add blue to your Christmas decorations, you’re setting up the tone for a relaxing and peaceful Christmas, but you’re also avoiding the headache of having to think about what colors you’re going to choose for this year’s Christmas tree.
