Today I'm joining my friends from the 31 Days of Christmas Ornaments blog hop to share some of our favorite Christmas tree inspiration with you!
For that tour, I made these sweet jar ornaments. You can read the full tutorial on How to Make Easy Christmas Jar Ornaments here. But today we're talking trees!
I shared my main Christmas tree in all of its French Linen and Blue & White splendor here… but I have a soft spot in my heart for a whimsical and romantic, shabby chic Christmas too. By the way, have you seen my Shabby Christmas tree from last year? It landed in the magazine!
So this year, my daughter and I decided to put up a smaller tree in the sunroom that is positively shimmering in pink and gold!
The great thing about this style of tree is that you can blend ornaments old and new, store-bought and homemade with ease! Which is wonderful from both a sentimental standpoint as well as a budget-friendly side.
We used a few new ball ornaments in pink and gold from Walmart. As well as some gold glitter icicles from the Dollar Tree.
This miniature church ornament was found at Kohl's this season.
This golden fairy/angel was also a Kohl's find this season.
My mom has been collecting Margaret Furlong ornaments (affiliate link) since the early 90's and this year she has blessed me with her collection!!!
I adore these ornaments and am so happy to provide them with a loving home where all the family can continue to enjoy them!
I've also got a few of my Snowbabies on the tree! I just love all these white bisque ornaments!!
There is even room for handmade ornaments from my daughter on this tree! Mixing in kids Christmas ornaments can sometimes be tricky, but I love finding ways to include my daughter's hard work in our decor and I'm so happy it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.
I've also woven some chunky pink yarn throughout the tree to add some homespun charm.
Of course, I couldn't resist adding a bit of glitz and glamour. To do this I added some gorgeous rose-gold sprays found at Michaels Craft Store. The golden star is also from Michaels, but from a few seasons ago.
I have a small collection of paper Christmas houses – which I love! I've tucked some around the base of the tree and on an antique chest in front of the tree.
I love the old-fashioned charm of these paper Christmas houses!
I used these houses around my Farmhouse inspired Christmas tree last year. I'm so pleased with how versatile they are! You can see them in this 5 Tips for How to Decorate a Farmhouse Christmas Tree post here.
My daughter loved snuggling up one of her dollies on this cozy faux fur throw next to the tree.
What's a tree without presents? I'm so excited to share a few of my very own designs (pinch me!) around the tree. This cream and soft pink plaid wrapping paper is Emma’s Buffalo Check in Pink. It’s a very soft blush pink – note: when you see it on my Spoonflower shop page it looks brighter than it is. The soft combination of pink, taupe, and white make this wrapping paper very romantic and flexible. It works well for a shabby chic Christmas style, as well as a shower gift or gift for a little princess in your life.
The gingham ribbon, pom-pom yarn, lace and vintage-inspired wreath add homespun charm!
Here is another one of my wrapping paper designs from my Spoonflower collection titled Emma’s Floral. It is designed to perfectly coordinate with Emma’s Buffalo Check shown above.
