I am normally a “decorate after Thanksgiving” kind of person even though bloggers are expected to decorate early. But I was invited to do participate in a super fun blog hop and I couldn’t say no. So while a couple of my kids may have grumbled about the tree being up too soon, I have enjoyed playing around with new tree decor. This year I decided to go with a Christmas tree with plum ornaments!
If you are here visiting from Linda’s blog, The Home I Create, welcome! I hope you have been inspired by seeing all the different styles of trees in the blog hop hosted by Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living. Make sure to visit all the blogs. There are so many fun takes on tree decor!
Last year was all about the gingerbread men, but this year it is all about moody purple, wood bead garland, eucalyptus sprigs.
As usual, I like to mix a bit of modern with earthy and natural elements. And while purple may not e the first color you think of when you think of Christmas, I think it works well, especially this warm plum hue.
Getting the Christmas tree decked out has made me excited to think of ways to bring in plum to the rest of the house.
We were challenged to come up with three words to describe our own personal style. I chose modern cottage charm. I love our little 1938 home and while I believe a home’s interior should reflect and match the architecture of the structure, I do love adding modern touches here and there. There is something very charming about all the little nooks, built-ins, and arches in our home. They make our home unique and they are so fun to decorate, especially at Christmas time!
I wanted to add wood beads this year. I knew I would need a lot and wanted to make sure it was cost effective. I bought unfinished wood beads online and then strung them myself. I also dipped them in wood stain. I LOVED how they turned out!
Thanks for letting me share my Christmas tree with plum ornaments and natural elements. If you want to create the same look, here are the links to the items!
