We’ll Have a Pink Christmas

Our home has been lovingly bedecked for the holidays.

Pink Christmas Tree

I’ve already shown you what the tree looks like undecorated

And I gave you a little glimpse of it with ornaments…

Now I have the rest of our tree, and a few other holiday decorations to show you.

Stockings have been hung from the dining room buffet.

Our deer are out, as always.

I’ve even decorated the light in the dining room (inspired by Brooke).

Really, I can’t believe I hesitated to buy the pink Christmas tree. It fits in so perfectly here.

    Oooh! It all looks so pretty! Perfect for little Eleanor’s first Christmas! This year our little Landon is quite mobile and quite into the tree… he keeps coming in the room and pointing at the tree and saying oooooooohhhh!!! Then he sneaks the ornaments off while we aren’t looking. Fun times!

    Aww! So cozy. Happy first Christmas to Miss Eleanor and the rest of your family. Well done, mom! I can barely manage to wash my hair and get out the door to work every day with a little one. I don’t know how you do it, but it all looks so pretty.

    Oh like a magazine spread for the coolest, craftiest designer in town. Just so original and TOTALLY you!

    Did you make the stocking letters or did you buy them? If bought, where? That’s a modern & timeless idea for labeling stockings. You inspired me to try that for my family.

    Happy Holidays?

      Those are ornaments from Restoration Hardware. We already had a ‘B’ and an ‘N’, so I made sure to grab an ‘E’ for Eleanor this year.

    I love the dove. Is it something that is still commercially available? my whole xmas tree is covered with birds from antique to modern. I love the soft and innocent look to the dovie.

    Just stumbled upon your site. Your decorating is simply beautiful. And the pink tree is so chic! Wherever did you get those sparkly silver round accessories pictured on your side table and on top of your dining room chandelier? Love those!

      They’re gold, and I picked them up at Kmart this year (part of the Martha Stewart line).

    What is the white porcelain (basket..?) pictured in photo # 7, beneath the tree? I like it, I just can’t put my finger in its purpose. Please enlighten me :)

      That’s my Christmas present: a bird bowl. Brandon said it was too big to wrap, but I think it looks cute under the tree!
