Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are ready to really decorate for Christmas now! In the last couple of weeks I did share my Christmas kitchen tour and my entry way. However, until the tree is up, it doesn’t really feel like I’ve decorated!
The tree is the center of the entire experience for me, and sets the tone for all my decorating. And this year, I have a new one. And I have to say, I’m smitten! Before I started decorating this year, I had a bit of a plan in my head. It involved my usual neutral French-inspired decor, but with a twist. I wanted some blush pink, a lot of white, and a flocked tree. In the past, I had always steered away from the super-white flocked trees. Not that I don’t like them, because I do. I guess because I’m in California, it seemed slightly ridiculous to have a tree that is completely white, haha!
But this Balsam Hill tree is absolutely gorgeous! My Frosted Fraser Fir, is lightly flocked, so it’s not totally white. It’s just enough white to soften the green, and is the exact look I was going for! I’m so excited to be a part of the Twelve Bloggers of Christmas Tour, sponsored by Balsam Hill. And I’m joining eleven uber-talented bloggers also sharing their trees!
So, welcome to my Romantic Christmas Living Room. I’m all about the blush pinks, a little bling, and lots of white. The pinks really soften up the whole look, and I love the way it came together….
Previous to being a blogger, I always had a live tree. So when it comes to faux trees, I consider myself pretty particular! Balsam Hill’s trees are so realistic, and very high quality. And I’m seriously in love with the light flocking – it looks so genuine and is just the right touch. I may never go back to a green tree! 😉 The white faux fur tree skirt is also from Balsam Hill.
Two different garlands, one flocked pine and one eucalyptus, form the base. I love this eucalyptus garland! I’ve always added live eucalyptus branches to my garlands and this makes it easy to do early, and I don’t need to keep replacing them! Mercury glass votives, white berries, and pine cones were added for some interest. And I just couldn’t resist the cute sparkly Merry Christmas banner I found! (similar here)
And of course, because I added the pink ornaments, I had to get some pink wrapping paper! What I love is you can use these all year long! They work for birthdays, showers, or Mother’s Day.
The French Country ornaments look so gorgeous on the tree! Mixed in with the mercury glass are some pink Winter Wish ornaments and I think they work really well together. And, I also added the Jeweled Christmas Tree Garland for a little more bling. I love that it’s also mercury glass!
A second little naked tree on the fireplace hearth joins the white knit stockings. These are a mix of some different ones I’ve found, and I’m in love! They have such an old-fashioned charm about them, I think they’re my new favorites!
A little vignette on the sofa table has some urns, an antique garden ornament holding more pink ornaments, and two little trees.
Hudson wanted to be in the shot apparently! I couldn’t get him to leave, haha!
I hope you enjoyed my Romantic Christmas Living Room! I’ll be sharing more tours in the coming weeks, as well as another Christmas tablescape this week so stay tuned for those, too!
