Holidays Living Room

The Pink Christmas Tree is Here

Pink Christmas Tree

I love it.

I do wish the lights were clear, but I can change them eventually. At night, the hot pink lights take the tree from kooky and fun to over-the-top bordello! Also, the 7.5′ version would have been a better height, but it would have been far too wide for the room. We ordered the medium-sized “wooden” tree stand you see in the photo, hoping that it would add some height. We only got a few extra inches from it, but it does look nicer than the wire stand that came with the tree.

I can’t wait to see what the tree looks like when it’s all decked out with ornaments!

    I wanted to get this tree as well but wasn’t liking the pink lights. I think it would be better with clear lights. My mom said no though. :( I think with the right decorations it will look beautiful.

    I love it! And, thank you. I was not in the Christmas spirit until I wandered upon your fabulous tree picture. It reminded me I have a lovely little silver aluminum one at home to put up.

    p.s. For my tree, I added height by sticking the base dowel through a few sturdy shoe boxes and draping them with a piece of dark purple satin.

    YOU ROCK MY FACE OFF!

    A suggestion to get some added height: Put some of the chirstmas decoration boxes under the nice wooden stand and cover them with a (white bed sheet, pink blanket, silver lame from the fabric store… I don’t know how to spell that, but it’s pronounced as though it’s french not as though it’s a bore!, or whatever you have laying around to disguise boxes). Then when it’s time to take it all down, the boxes are still close at hand. Just don’t put the ornament boxes under it, for obvious reasons. My mom did this with her slim trees at their old house when they were short on space, and it was barely noticeable that the tree was elevated above the regular tree stand.

    So pretty! My husband would fall over and die at the sight of it, though. His live tree chopping adventures and memories as a kid run far too deep for him to go for this. Like I said before, a small one in my daughter’s room will be so awesome!

    P.S. I think it would be stunning with a wool or white faux fur rug/blanket as the tree skirt a la Young House Love.

    Sooooooo cool! As for added height, we’ve been setting smaller trees on nightstands or similar sturdy furniture pieces. It provides that extra height, looks cool and lets any ornaments that hang at the bottom branches have extra space to “breathe”. har har. Also More room around the base for…..prezzies…yay!

    I’m a wee bit jealous. My husband would look at me and say, “I’m emotional, I like chick flicks, and I can enjoy a pedicure like no other, but no pink tree.” I know because I jokingly asked him about one last month and he gave me “the look”. It looks fantastic though!
