Let’s Meet The Hosts!
This Christmas tree was so much fun to put together.The rest of my home is decked out in red, green, plaid and buffalo check. Our living room is the only room in the house that has Christmas decor of blue and silver. Did you have a chance to see my Christmas Mantel last week? Or the Christmas Coffee Table Vignette? Being that the living room is already decorated in hues of blue, I thought a blue and silver tree would be beautiful.
Lights, Camera, Action
I purchased this 8 foot pre-lit Australian Pine flocked tree from Lowe’s last year for just $99. Unfortunately, they no longer carry it. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t buy a second one. Not only is the tree full and lush – it is easy to assemble and it has 8 different lighting settings that you turn off and on with a foot-press button. I’m telling you…the tree is awesome!
Cool lighting and warm lighting settings make such a difference.
The first thing I added to the tree were two different navy wired ribbons that are 2 ½” wide.
They are each intertwined throughout the entire tree.
Next, I began adding ornaments. As some of you may remember, the bulk of my Christmas decorations are in storage. When it comes to decorating the Christmas tree I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on ornaments.
This sweet papa and baby bear were purchased during my NYC trip with Honey Bee at Christmas last year.
The mercury glass fish were a new purchase. They were only $4.99 for a set of 6 and I just knew they would be perfect for the tree.
Mercury glass shimmers and reflects with light.
Interspersed through the tree are oversized dollar store ornaments. They make an impact for little investment.
These blue glitter deer are from the dollar store as well.
I also made ornaments. You can read my tutorial for making Fabric Wrapped Christmas Ornaments .They are a perfect way to add personality and style to your tree and decor.
I hope that you are inspired by my blue and silver Christmas tree for the living room. What colors are you decorating with?
TIPS TO CREATE A BLUE CHRISTMAS THEME
Use ribbons that emphasize color theme of your tree.
Hang blue ornament collections to bring a cohesive look to the tree.
Mix precious ornaments with oversized dollar store ornaments.
Use as many ornaments in similar color tones for maximum effect!
