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.

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

    Everything is so beautiful! I think what is so inspiring about you and everything you design is that it is so unapologetically you. You are so good at trusting your instincts and pushing the envelope. Eleanor is lucky to have such a confident role model to emulate. You push me to follow my gut and worry less about what people think. Modern estancia, here I come. ;)

    p.s. You outdid yourself again with your Christmas cards this year!

    Love all the pink! The stocking holder is so cute! Where did you find that…and is it really a stocking holder?

    • Elizabeth
      December 21, 2009 at 9:28 pm

      I second the stocking hook question. I’ve been searching everywhere for ones that I like and haven’t found a thing.

    • Making it Lovely
      December 21, 2009 at 9:34 pm

      They ARE official stocking holders. I bought them years ago from Hold Everything (they’re designed by Jonathan Adler) – they were on clearance for $5.

    I don’t usually put up a tree, because I celebrate Hanukkah. But I do celebrate Christmas too, and after seeing your tree here, if I did put up a tree it would be a pink one like yours. I love it!

    I think you tree and home are just lovely! Where did you get the fun, gold, decorative spray (near the chandelier)?

    Thanks for the inspiration!

      The gold ones are from Kmart (Martha Stewart’s Christmas decorations), and I got the more colorful ones that are in the tree from Pier 1 a few years ago.

    Oh my goodness. Your photos are leaving me a little breathless. The tree, the ornaments, the wrapping, the decor, that stocking holder. I want to move in with your family and have it be the holidays all the time.

    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!

  • Alana

    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.

    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?

    • Making it Lovely
      December 23, 2009 at 1:45 pm

      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.
