Bujo Inspo: 100 Theme ideas for your bullet journal
"Creativity takes courage"
Have you ever struggled to find theme ideas for your monthly bullet journal spreads? I found myself scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest in the beginning of each month. I was spending a little too much time finding inspiration for my layouts. There are the obvious themes that are related to each month but what if you want to switch things up? Here’s a list of cool theme ideas for your monthly and weekly layouts.
Plant + Nature themes
Probably one of my favorite kind of themes to do in my bujo. You can be super detailed and illustrative or be minimal and artsy. The only problem I have is always picking an idea. Here's some of my favorites and some I need to try!
Birth flowers for the month
Flowers: Peonies, roses, tropical flowers, sunflowers, cherry blossoms, lilies
Leaves: Banana leaves, monstera leaves, Fall or Autumn leaves, Eucalyptus, Baby's breath
Hanging house plants
Umbrellas and rain
Seasonal + Festive themes
This is the most obvious theme ideas but noteworthy to add to this list. These themes are for the moments you're feeling festive and want to live it 24/7.
January: Fireworks, Gatsby/1950's theme, celebration puffy gold balloons (you know which ones I'm talking about)
February: Generic hearts or real anatomy of hearts, pink theme, anti-valentines day
March-May: Easter, Spring vibes, pastel colors
June-August: Summer vibes, vacay mode, road trips
September-November: Autumn Fall themes, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Pumpkin spice

If you’re not much of an artist, ran out of printer ink, or just want to keep things simple here are different color schemes that you can do to theme each month. It doesn't need to be fancy. All you need to do is splash some paint around, get some cute washi tape, or work with some journal stickers and you got yourself a color scheme.
