So I wasn’t planning on sharing my Christmas tree quite this early but when I was invited by Shutterly Fabulous to take part in their “Winter Window Display” competition, I decided to get my bum in gear and share it a little earlier.
I decided on a slightly different colour palette. While I’ve gone with a deep cerise pink and gold in the dining room, I wanted to keep things a little softer in here. So I chose a soft blush pink to mix with gold and white.
I also made a little paper tassel garland across the bay window and used two small (cheap) wreaths stung on ribbon to dress up the window. I have to keep my hanging decorations quite high on the windows or else Meisha thinks it’s an invitation to play. I wrapped a white faux fur throw around the bottom to hide the base. As you can see, I haven’t wrapped my gifts just yet! We’re getting there though…!
I bought the tree from ArtificialChristmasTree.co.uk (clever name there, eh?) because my old one was about 10 years old and looking pretty grim. I took a bit of a gamble buying the tree online from a foreign company but I have to say, I’m thrilled with it. It’s pre-lit so no needing to wrestle with lights and I love the flocking. Most of the tree ornaments I already had from previous years but I did pick up a couple of boxes of inexpensive pink ornaments on eBay.
I also “Christmas’d up” the rest of the room with a few little touches. The mercury glass tree is from Matalan. They sent me a few of their items for review and they have some seriously gorgeous things so I’ll be sharing more of those as I share my Christmas decorations but needless to say, this little tree is a new favourite and for a mere £15, great value for money too.
A couple of glittery reindeer that I already had and some hanging baubles on the chandelier finished off the room. I’m still waiting on two sequinned gold cushion covers for the sofa to tie it all together but in the meantime, we’re enjoying the Christmassy feel of the room despite it not really being in the traditional Christmas hues.
So what do you think of the colour scheme? Are you for or against non-traditional Christmas colours at this time of year? Are you shooting me evils for not getting a real tree? ;) Do let me know, would love to hear from you!
While I received the glass tree decoration free for my review from Matalan, all opinions, images and general rambling are as always my own. Thanks for supporting the companies that support Swoon Worthy.
