Christmas Themes – Ideas For 2018

This post is part of my Christmas 2018 series. You can find more posts by clicking here.

Choosing a theme for Christmas each year is something I do to make planning for Christmas easier. It helps me:

  • make decisions on decorations
  • make decisions on food
  • give a focus to the type of gifts I will make

You can find previous years’ Christmas theme ideas here:

Pantone colour of the year Ultra Violet

Ultra violet was the Pantone colour of the year for 2018 and they describe it as:

A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Ultra violet fairy lights for the tree or decorating mantles.

And a dark purple is of course the colour of advent candles!
