A Pomegranate Christmas Theme

Welcome To Day Two Of Twelve Days To Get Ready For Christmas. Do you have a theme yet for Christmas? My theme this year is A Pomegranate Christmas.

Today I am sharing How to Choose a Theme for Christmas. Last year my theme was a Cranberry Christmas (and Pink Christmas in the Carriage House) and I am excited to use Pomegranates as my Christmas theme this year.

How I Picked the Theme Pomegranate Christmas

christmas-decorating-ideas (2)

Every year I choose a theme for Christmas. Why? Because it keeps me on track and helps me to stay focused.

But guess what?

This year I will have two themes again. As I mentioned, the theme for our home is Pomegranate Christmas.

I have a second theme for our Carriage House. I am not yet ready to share what that theme is, but it is going to be amazing. Any guesses?

How to Pick Your Theme


I had a hard time deciding on this theme because there are so many ideas to choose from.

Here are just a few of the themes you might want to consider. All of the themes below are linked to a list with lots of fun items to get you started, so check them out!

So how do you select a theme? It really comes down to your style and the Christmas decor that you love. Spend some time looking at Christmas decor photos (such as Instagram, Pinterest, and back issues of holiday magazines). I like to change it up a bit every year. I certainly want to be able to reuse my decor from year to year but I like being able to change my decor just enough to fit a new theme.

Create a Mood Board

Once you have picked your theme it might be fun to put a Mood Board together. It is really easy to create a mood board on the website Canva. Here is the one I created for this year’s theme, Pomegranate Christmas.

Pomegranate Christmas Mood Board

Doesn’t this just get you in the best mood for pomegranates? And everything that is the color of pomegranates?


This is the mood board I made for my theme for Christmas 2021. I love cranberries in decor and in recipes!

Patina Green Christmas Color Palette

This is the mood board I made for my theme for Christmas 2020. I used green verdigris, a patina copper theme.

Ways to Incorporate your Theme

So once you have a theme, what do you do with it? I like to use my theme throughout everything I do for Christmas. My decor matches the theme. My wrapping paper, crafts, and florals go with the theme. Even my recipes fit the theme, whenever possible.

Here are some great examples of how you can fit your theme into everything you do for Christmas.


I have a lot of Pomegranate recipes I want to try this holiday season. One of my favorite Christmas Party recipes is this Baked Brie with Pomegranate appetizer.

Wrapping Paper, Ribbons, and Tags

I have pomegranate-colored ribbon and wrapping paper! If you chose a Coastal Christmas decor theme, you could use aqua and tan wrapping paper, and stamp seashells on your own homemade wrapping paper!

Pomegranate Colored Inspired Florals

Real and Faux pomegranates will soon be easy to find and I love using them in my decor and table arrangements. A Silver and Gold Christmas theme would look gorgeous with fruits wrapped in silver and gold leaf and florals sparkling with silver and gold glitter.

Pomegranate Colored Pillows

It’s not hard to use this beautiful pomegranate color in lots of holiday pillows. A Plaid Christmas decor theme would look amazing with red and green plaid pillows scattered throughout your home.

Table Settings

I have pomegranate-colored dishes and linens and even use fresh and faux pomegranates in my vases! A Vintage Christmas theme would be so much fun to use on your tablescapes. Flea market and antique store finds would look wonderful down the center of your table!

  1. Hi! I’m new here…thanks to my following of KariAnne’s.
    My Christmas decorations are very bright and colorful. Magenta, teal, lime, etc. Fun for the little ones!
    I’m having a difficult time finding Christmas wrapping paper. I don’t want the presents to look like they’ve been wrapped in birthday party paper.
    Any ideas?

  2. Hello Leslie and KariAnne;
    I’ve loved both of your websites every week. Leslie, you inspired my new collection of cranberry glassware items. My home decor colors are ivory, navy, and cranberry. I also love pink and use it in the master bed/bath and touches throughout. My question is: Where may I find cranberry glass or colored Christmas ornaments? Last year, I found 4 large glass ornaments. I love them. I found them at one of my favorite re-sale shops. I’d like to add more of similar or cranberry colored regular ornaments. Any ideas for me? And, thank-you for inspiring me so much. God bless you this Christmas time.

    1. Love love love the pomegranate idea…I am going to copy your idea. I actually already have multiple things I can use, thank you. You do everything to perfection. 😁

  3. I want to know how you pick which artificial flowers, stems, etc. you order from Amazon. Yours are absolutely gorgeous (because I’ve seen them and several of the ladies at your book launch and I were wondering!). Are there certain companies you look for, buzz words, reviews…? I’m pretty particular and want them to look, well, like yours!

    1. I try to find the ones with the best reviews and from there it’s sort of trial and error, but all of the ones I have tagged from Amazon on my blog post are amazing!

  4. Leslie, I love the theme idea, especially cranberries and pomegranates. I was wondering about storage since different themes could mean accumulating lots of decor over time. Any tips?

  5. HI Leslie, I have been searching and searching for the other posts you did on pomegranates. I can’t find them. I only see the velvet poms, the wreath and the pillow. I think I remember some fall orange ones and then the big arrangement in a white crock. Any chance you could link me to them?
    Love your blog!
    Thanks in advance.
