Christmas theme ideas 2022

This post is part of my Christmas planning series. You can find the rest of the series here.


Here are my Christmas theme ideas collection for 2022. Christmas themes can be a great way to help you plan our your Christmas:

  • It aides decision making process, in relation to things like cards, decorations, wrappings etc
  • It helps simplify what Christmas accessories you will go with
  • It allows for simple and coordinated look for Christmas celebrations
  • It adds to the memory – it was the gold Christmas etc!!!

The intent of curating these theme ideas is not to get you out to the shops buying more stuff but to give you ideas of what you can do with what you already have. You might not use a theme idea in its entirety but use the table setting idea from one and the wreath idea from another for example – it is really an inspiration board style post.

We are going with a pink and red Christmas theme this year. We already have a pink Christmas tree and red decorations so one large part of it is all sorted!

I have been curating Christmas theme ideas for many years now so have a big archive of ideas if you find these themes don’t resonate with you. You can find previous years’ Christmas theme ideas here:
