DREAMING OF A PINK CHRISTMAS


I am dreaming of a pink Christmas...

I love to add a little pink into Christmas decorations.


Gorgeous rosy blush, deep pinks, hot pinks, bright pinks
or pale pinks...

google

the Holidays are pretty in pinks

It doesn't have to be a lot of pink... just a bit here and there
A cloche filled with glass balls on a sideboard
or a white tree covered in pink jewels
or maybe a little pink on the table
It inspired this 'Dreaming of a pink Christmas' tablescape.

Gorgeous vintage glass ornaments
and pretty mercury glass silver trees
= LOVE.


This gorgeous ornament wreath~ fabulous.
I think I am going to try and make one like this this year

What about pink Christmas trees?
Love them? Hate them?
I decorate several trees at my house- I can never decide on just 1 theme
so I do a few different ones

This year I am adding at least 1 more tree...
So what do you think-
should it be pinkalicious?

My absolute favorite tree in our house
is a heavily flocked white tree that I found
at a local Ben Franklin.
It is perfect with just a few ornaments and lights on it
no need for anything more.
Maybe I will just make that one into a pretty in pink tree
(though I have to admit...
I kinda like the pink branches on the pink ones)

:)


See you tomorrow for Feathered Nest Friday!

  1. My mom and I were in Michaels today commenting on the lack of pink in Christmas decor this year. {she has done beautiful pink decor for several years} I'm thrilled to see others still "think pink" for the holidays, it is always stunning!

  3. I love pink for Christmas! There's just something about it.
    When I was a newlywed, I had a white tree that I decorated all in pink. I loved that tree & wish I still had it.

  5. I agree. Nothing prettier than a pink Christmas!!!! I'll be adding a bowl of pink vintage ornaments to my dining room table and possibly a small pink tree. I'm looking forward to seeing your decorations.

  6. Oooh, I love that pink ornament wreath, Courtney! For the past couple of years {since I found two smaller trees at Goodwill}, I've been doing more than one tree. I do each one different. One I use all my kids ornaments from when they were little and those they made. One is just fun and whimsical. The main one I keep more traditional. Last year I picked up a little counter top one for the kitchen and used ornaments related to baking, candy and hot chocolate. It went well with my baking Santa!

  15. How pretty! I am doing my children's Christmas dresses in pink and black this year and would LOVE to have this type of "pinkalicious" decorations in the background for the card! Sooo lovely!

  21. Love Love LOVE the pink! It's such a joyful color! Here in the Houston area, it seems that brown and gold leopard print ribbon, brown and gold balls, pheasant feathers and such as that are kind of one of the "in" looks for Christmas this year....

    it's pretty, but you can't beat PINK!

    Thanks for sharing all of those pretty pink pics with us!
    hugs,

  24. Last year at Christmas time we were awaiting the birth of our first grandchild, a girl. So in honor of Mila born on Jan.30th, I decorated a tree with all pink! It was so pretty. I love Christmas decor in other than the traditional green and red colors. So fun! (My other tree is in coppers and golds.)

  29. when I used to do a tree in every room I had a white silk tree with pink ornaments. The top was pink glass grapes. That was 20 years ago and that tree now is a gorgeous creamy patina so this year it is decorated in pheasant feathers, gold birds, gold acorns, glittered preserved ferns and twig garland. I found two vintage chalk ware pheasants at a yard sale this summer and they are at the base of the tree. This is for Thanksgiving. It will be turned into our only Christmas tree this year by removing the acorns and adding gold Santas. I need to buy a new white tree for the pink ornaments and Valentines. LOL....sorry for the long post but guess what I am saying is I like the white tree with pink ornaments as opposed to a pink tree. xoxo Lynn
    P.S. I took your advice and shopped Lowe's today for Thanksgiving table stuff. Bought some coconut matting for the table runners. Thank you for a great idea!

  31. One year my family went to Dollywood in TN for Christmas and it was magical. The holiday decorations were stunning. They had color themed trees like pink, lime, each with twinkly lights that matched. But the tree that made the biggest impression for me was the purple tree complete with twinkly purple lights. I would have never thought to do that but it was gorgeous.

  35. I have a small pink feather tree that I adore. I'm trying to get my large tree pinker, it is hard because the red is everywhere. I agree there is not that much pink out there this year, Laura

  38. Hi Courtney,
    I have a collection of pink attique ornaments that I love. My favorite color to pop in is a bit of turquoise. I too change themes. My living room is a candy/gingerbread theme. I do my enty cupboard in red and lime. My family room is more vintage with mercury glass. Kitchen I use alot of village houses and jars, cake plates, and cloches. Master bedroom is snowmen. How's that for not being able to make up my mind? lol! I think a pink tree would be so sweet! Have you seen the Romantic Homes magazine? This woman, Julie does all of her decor in pink, mango, lime, lavender and it's candy themed. It is too darn cute!
