See how a mix of pinks, silver, white and gold, give this pink Christmas tree a vintage French feel.

This year’s Christmas tree is soft and feminine. It reminds me of a vintage, French Christmas dressed in shades of pink, silver, white and gold. But although the colors are soft, the overall look is quite bold!

This is a Balsam Hill Carolina Hemlock. While I originally thought I’d put together a blue Christmas tree this year, pink seemed to be calling my name instead.

I decided to go geometric with my ribbon this year, which is a departure from my norm. I created a diamond pattern on the tree using pink velvet ribbon. In hindsight, I should have used ribbon with a heavier gauge of wire because this was just too flimsy to hold its shape. Lesson learned.

Each intersection is secured with two pink flowers, a gold ornament, and some sprigs of gold fern.

I used quite a variety of ornaments….maybe more than I usually do but I love the electic mix!

I even decorated the outer tips of the tree with a mix of pink birds and white candles. These white candles are from Amazon and simply clip to the branches. They can be turned on/off with a remote. They are awesome!

So even though the tree doesn’t incorporate traditional Christmas colors, it’s still quite a statement!

Underneath the tree, I tucked various items like a sled, ice skates, old books, and ornaments.

A little furry lovebug {okay, it was Mimi} was my assistant for the day. She’s easy to work with, although she doesn’t really help much.

So, that’s my tree for this year!

And at night, the warm glow and soft pink are so relaxing…

I hope you’re enjoying a great start to this holiday season!

  1. Words can’t adequately describe how beautiful your tree is. I love your little dog, too. Merry Christmas.

  2. This tree is magical, I think pink is so pretty and calming. Thank you for sharing!

  3. This year the color pink is calling my name. I think it’s softness is soothing and for that reason, many have chosen this color to help them through a tough year. Your tree is soft, with just enough color so that it’s not gaudy and decorated just enough so that you can see the individual ornaments. I’m going to use it for my inspiration this year. Lovely.

  4. I love your Christmas tree in pink. It’s cheerful, inviting and beautifully decorated with lots of ornaments. I can’t wait to start on my tree now. Thank you for sharing your pictures and talent with us.

    Really pretty and different. I like the geometric ribbon arrangement. Tell me how you keep your candles from tipping. I have some and find them a nuisance.

      Hi Teddee! Thank you! These candles swivel 360 degrees so I’m able to tilt them to counterbalance the branch. If I bump the tree they might move, but for the most part, if I pick a sturdy branch and swivel the candle so that it’s balanced, it stays in place. I hope that helps! :) Kim
