History of Blue and White Home Decor

Blue and white pottery first became popular in China in the 14th century with the discovery of cobalt blue. This is often why Chinoiserie designs are very commonly found with modern-day blue and white pottery sold in stores. 

Another popular blue and white brand with historical significance is Royal Delft. Delftware originated in the Netherlands and its blue and white pottery became incredibly popular in Europe in the 1600s.

Symbolism of Blue and White Christmas Decor

Blue and white have long been associated with the winter season, evoking a sense of tranquility and serenity. While red and green are more commonly associated with Christmas, blue and white can bring a refreshing change to your holiday decor. 

The color blue represents the calmness and peacefulness of winter, while white symbolizes purity and the glistening snow. Together, they create a harmonious and elegant atmosphere that is perfect for celebrating the holidays.

Let’s check out some unique ways that blue and white have been incorporated into Christmas decor!

While red, green, and gold are the most obvious colors to use with a holiday tablescape, I love this surprise of blue and white with formal place settings on a dining room table.

Because blue and white have such a traditional feel, it pairs well with the other traditional colors of Christmas. I love the pop of plaid below the blue and white plate and stocking created by Pizzazzerie.
