I’m hosting Christmas for both sides of our family in a few weeks. Since we are celebrating early, I hopped right on getting my tree up this year! I loved the classic red tree I did last year. I couldn’t quite give up on using that deep wine color again. I still wanted to switch it up a bit though. After much debate, I landed on this Blue and Red Christmas Tree Decor.
It’s no surprise that blue is my favorite color, as we have a lot throughout our home. It has been a while since I’ve added blue into the mix for Christmas.
This year, I decided to add a smokey pale blue velvet ribbon to bring in the color. I also bought an inexpensive pack of pale blue ornaments.
It’s surprising how easy it is to change the look and feel of a tree with only a pack or two of ornaments and some ribbon. I used a mixture of mercury glass and gold ornaments to fill in the rest of the tree.
Oh and wrapping paper! I found this really gorgeous pack of patterned wrapping paper. It really adds so much to the bottom of the tree.
Especially since I realized I decorated the entire tree without putting the tree collar on the bottom first. I didn’t want to risk moving the tree, so I just threw a knit blanket around the bottom. I added the presents and no one needs to know!
I carried the blue velvet ribbon over to the mantel as well. I decided to keep things super simple with a wreath and garland this year.
The gold bells were a fun addition too.
I’m loving the warm glow of the Christmas lights on these early dark evenings. Next up I need to tackle my table and menu for the parties! I’ll be sharing those soon too!
