It is done. I have tolled on this tree and mantel for more than three days. Just don’t touch or sneeze on it because it will come crashing down! Not really! The tree is loosely designed around pink and blue. But I couldn’t make up my mind so I threw a fair amount of lavender and purple. I was back and forth on the colors so I just threw them all in there. ; )
I used lots of blue throughout. It keeps the red calmed and I can live with it better. Yes, the lady with two red sofas just said that!
I thought I was low on blue balls and ordered some blue and pink Shiny Brites off Ebay but as you see I have plenty of blue! I forget to show you my plaid throw!
There that’s better!
The pink and blue ribbon was something I bought many years ago and never used. It never really worked with my Christmas trees over the years. But it is in it’s glory now, adorning the tree. It was a Walmart find. No, they didn’t pay me to share that with you. The lavender hydrangeas were bought from Hobby Lobby when they had their florals on sale right around Thanksgiving. I very loosely do a themed tree. I like to have old ones we bring out each year and mix in new. I don’t generally do a true themed tree.
This was my starting point even though I thought I was playing around take photos. There is the pink and blue card along with the pink berries and sits on a lavender plate. The colors I subconsciously chose!
I didn’t do a close up of the vintage shiny brite balls because you could see my reflection and it would have been just a whole lot of me. So I spared you from that with a close up of the new balls!
Vintage mercury glass balls mixed with others are on view behind the sofa. A red sequined cardinal is sitting handsome along with the cardinals on the pillow seen on the sofa.
Taken at night.
