In this post, I share Five Elements to Create a Chinoiserie Style Christmas. Colorful holiday home decor that puts a smile on every face.
Aren’t we all thankful that we have so many options for Christmas decorating?
The traditional reds and greens of Christmas will always be a crowd favorite.
Elegant silver and golds have a secured place in the Christmas decorating space.
We all will forever dream of an ethereal White Christmas.
And now, NOW we have so many colorful options. Take a look at this Chinoiserie Christmas Tree loaded with Chinoiserie Christmas ornaments.
This cute little tree greets guests just inside my front door. There are beautiful bright blue and white ornaments, along with colorful pink chinoiserie ornaments. Here are some sources for you:

The Main Chinoiserie Christmas Tree
My main tree this year, in the living room picture window, is a little more in the traditional ethereal white Christmas category. However, I did manage to add a couple of splashes of Chinoiserie.
Here is the link to the tree, where you will also find a video tutorial: Elegant Chinoiserie Style Christmas Tree

Five Elements to Create a Chinoiserie Style Christmas
- Blue and White Christmas Ornaments
- Ginger Jar – Tie a bow around yours or add Ornaments
- Cheetah Ribbon/Ornaments
- Vivid Colors
- Pagodas/Monkeys/Foo Dogs /Staffordshire Dogs and Flamingos(more Palm Beach/Hollywood Regency which was birthed from Chinoiserie) add bows to your exsisting decor or purchase a few ornamnets in the motif
1. Blue and White Chinoiserie Ornaments
Beautiful blue and white ornaments hand painted with Chinoiserie motif is a subtle way (at least in the realm of Chinoiserie), to add a touch of the timeless style to your Christmas home. Whether you place them on your tree, or display them in a bowl, you will be off to a great start.
2. Ginger Jars – Beautiful Year-Round Chinoiserie Decor
Taking a look around my home, you’d realize fairly quickly that I love decorating with ginger jars. I have a post from this past summer: How to Spray Paint A Ginger Jar in Moments , where I showed you how to lacquer a ginger jar.
Here it is ready for Christmas!
Tying a big bow or attaching an ornament to your existing home decor is such an easy way to bring holiday cheer without little effort.
Here are links to some of my favorite Ginger Jars:
3. Cheetah Ribbon & Ornaments add a Touch of Chinoiserie Style at Christmas
Is anything hotter right now than cheetah print? It is everywhere. (I’m a little sad, because it is trendy, but I’ve had it in my closet and home for years. It will remain, long after the cheetah fire burns out. You can use it on packages, twirl it down your Christmas tree, or tie it around the decor pieces you display all year.
Here are links to my favorite cheetah ribbon and mischievous monkey:
4. Vivid Colors – A Great Chinoiserie Trademark
Chinoiserie prints are rich with bright colors of blue, greeen, turquoise, and pink. They can be intricate paintings of Asian emperors, or a outdoor scene with elaborately painted birds and cheery blossom blooms. The table top tree in my entryway embraced those colors.

5. Pagodas/Monkeys/Foo Dogs/Stafordshire DOgs and Flamingos
Again, if you have these items in your everyday decor, just add a little Christmas cheer to them in the way of an ornamant or bow. Francesca loves carrying Christmas cheer.
Pagoda’s are quintessential Chinoiserie, and not easy to find. Here are my favorites:
Now, go get your Christmas on, my friends!
