Jennifer Lopez graced the holidays in style with a special theme this year.

O marry me star, 53, shared photos of her holiday celebrations in the latest issue of her in JLo newsletter and announced that it has centered its Christmas theme and style this year around the hummingbird idea.

“For me, hummingbirds are messengers of love,” Lopez wrote in her newsletter. “… They are also the fastest bird but they always have time to stop, eat a sweet and smell the roses. I identify with them, but more than anything whenever I see them, I feel that it is a sign from God that everything it’s going to be OK.”

She even decorated her Christmas tree with silver and gold hummingbirds and teal tinsel, which she paired in photos posted to Instagram with a similar teal dress with red ribbon motifs. The collar and cuffs of the dress were white with floral motifs, which she accessorized with white floral earrings and red patent leather wedges with ankle straps.

“So I decided this year that the hummingbird would be a perfect theme,” she said, adding that she wrote a song called “Hummingbird” for her new album. “We blend families, double the fun, double the love, double the gifts and triple the chaos!!”

Lopez also admitted that the bird influenced her outfit for the star-studded party she threw with Ben Affleck, 50, at her Los Angeles home earlier this month.

“I also chose hummingbird colors for my party dress this year,” she wrote. “It’s a Gucci dress I have in my closet, I bought it a year ago and I’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it. I thought it was perfect for our Hummingbird Christmas party.”

The extravagant floor-length silk dress featured what appeared to be fan or wing patterns in various shades of silver, teal and green across the full length of the long-sleeved dress. The dress’s sleeves billowed around her wrist, fading to black velvet cuffs, and a silver pattern detailed the gown’s high neckline. She accessorized the dress with silver earrings and tied her hair in an elegant ponytail.

The actress and singer went all out on the first vacation season she’s shared with Affleck since marrying him earlier this year.

“For the past 8 years, we’ve been doing a Christmas edition of Taco Tuesday where we get together, dress up and sing Christmas carols,” Lopez said in her newsletter. “This was the first time in a long time that we were able to get together with people that we haven’t seen in a long time. The party was full of family, friends, colleagues and people that we have known over the years. We sang and danced and had a great time. “
