One thing you should know about me is that my Christmas decor isn’t what I’d call cohesive. I love various style of Christmas decorations. From traditional red to playful pink to white and silver, I cover the spectrum of Christmas decor. Today I’m sharing some of my Christmas vignettes.
If you’re stopping by from Place of My Taste, welcome!
Every year my 4-foot pink Christmas tree goes on this console table in our dining area. And every year I decorate it with my collection of glass ornaments. But they aren’t just any glass ornaments, they’re macaron, ice cream, cake, cupcake, pie, gumdrop, etc. ornaments. And the topper is a giant pink snowflake cookie. I love how the ornaments pick up the colors in the art print I hung in this spot. But to dress up the painting some, I add a fluffy white wreath I’ve had for years.
But because I am a blogger by profession, I feel I have to mix things up a little bit. So this year I added a vintage white ceramic Christmas tree that I scored in early 2019. I bought the tree from a guy cleaning out an elderly person’s home. He sold it to me for $40. Brad rewired it for me with this kit because the wiring was original, and I didn’t trust it.
Honestly, can you even? Because I CANNOT.
Seriously, get a pink Christmas tree. Cover it beautiful, sparkly dessert ornaments. I guarantee it will bring you instant happiness and for a couple minutes you’ll forget about the hellscape that’s been 2020. It works for me at least.
I say this every year, but I really do want to get a bigger pink tree so I can display all of my glass dessert ornaments. If you have a favorite pink Christmas tree, please let me know.
For the Kiddos
Kids make Christmas more fun and magical, so why not decorate their space? For the past couple years, I’ve been decorating the top of the boys’ bookshelf in their playroom. This is more for me than them because as long as they can still play with their toys and read/look at their books, it’s all good. Although the two year old does like to name as many ornaments as possible on the playroom tree. He gets v excited about Santa, and I can’t blame him.
Instead of dropping tons of money on wall art that will be out for less than two months, I like to use wrapping paper, gift bags, kid art, and greeting cards. Cut everything to size, and pop it into a frame. Boom. Done. And it doesn’t break the bank.
Another inexpensive way to add Christmas cheer to kid spaces is to add miniature bottle brush trees and wreaths to vehicles.
Again, can you even? Because I CANNOT.
Are traditional Christmas decorations more your style? Great, I appreciate that style as well. Let’s head to my entryway.
Every year, I set my late grandparents’ green ceramic Christmas tree, which was painted by my late aunt, on the dresser my mom and her twin used as kids.
Most of these lights are original to the tree.
