The other night, we had a neighborhood holiday house walk where a handful of us opened up our houses for neighbors to walk through and see our Christmas decorations. One of our neighbors said “Oh, a pink Christmas tree. You must have a girl.” I said, “No, I have two boys. That tree is for me.”
I put the pink tree, which is covered in sweet treats, in the same spot last year. I didn’t want to take down the artwork on the wall so I decided to work with it. And since there’s pink in the print, I took it as a sign to put the pink tree back on the table.
The tree is covered in gingerbread houses, gum drops, ice cream cones, slices of cake, lollipops, cupcakes, cookies, macarons, donuts, and one of my favorites– a waffle. There’s also a red KitchenAid mixer. I’ve collected the ornaments over the last few years. Many are from Michael’s and Macy’s.
I put out the white and pink bottlebrush trees again but changed things up and added a red, pink, and white felt ball garland. The felt ball garland is originally intended for Valentine’s Day, but it works for Christmas as well. So keep that in mind when trying to use the decorations you already have.
I’ve scored most of the ornaments at after Christmas sales, so always keep your eyes peeled if you’re out shopping.
I think I’m either going to have to stop collecting ornaments or get a bigger tree at this point.
