I have dreamed of a pastel christmas since as long as I could remember. Christmas is my favorite holiday by far and as much as I love the traditional red, green and gold that usually adorns our household during the festive season I have also wanted a beautiful pastel filled christmas one day. The kind that make you feel like you are surrounded in a snowy white winter wonderland. Since I just revamped my living room with pastels and neutrals, I thought this Christmas I would put our red and gold tree in the back room and get a new pastel theme going in our front room.
I have been pouring over gorgeous pastel christmas ideas for a few weeks now. From stunning table settings like above that look full of magical to beautiful pastel colored decorations below, I have been in awe of it all.
Pastel Christmas Tree Decorations:
I fell in love with these little swallow baubles, something and unique for my pastel Christmas tree. I just loved these etsy handmade pastel wooden reindeer ornaments too! They were so cute. With kids it’s always a must to have a few classy picture frame ornaments on the tree too. I have never been one to get just one type of tree ornaments, I like a variety of colors, shapes, sizes to truly create something unique.
I wasn’t sure if I should adorn my new living room with a green tree and just use pastel christmas decorations or if I should go the whole haul and get a white christmas tree. My mind was made up when I realized I had over £150 tesco voucher to use and this tree was only £40 and it’s a 6 footer too! Bonus. I think all my pastel christmas ornaments will looked amazing on here and I even bought some light blue mesh ribbon that I think is really going to stand out on the white branches. Now to just find white lights on white robe so the green doesn’t shine through! Next challenge…
I could forget to go the whole haul and locate some pastel wrapping paper. I don’t mind that some of it isn’t specifically for Christmas. Pastel wrapping paper can be used for a plethora of holidays. I am still on the look out for mutli-colored pastel christmas paper but here are a few I think would look great under a white christmas tree and still match my theme.
Now I really went out of my comfort zone here with these stockings for a few different reasons. One: they match my new stag look in the living room, two: they were free using my tesco vouchers – thank you double club boost, and three: they were too pretty to pass by but the only problem is now I have to find two matching pastel colored stockings for Mr P and Buba as I got two of these for Missy Moo and I. Maybe I should have bought four and the guys could strut the pink, what do you think?
I absolutely love these pastel crystal garland lights. My living room is pink, green and blue mostly so they couldn’t match more perfectly. I could probably get away with using them all year around if I am honest. I love to dress my fireplace up so these are high on my wishlist for my pastel christmas decorating. Christmas isn’t Christmas without tea light holders lit about giving off that winter holiday ambience right?
What do you think of my pastel Christmas theme? Are you a more traditional Christmas decorator? Do you use the same color scheme each year or do you like to change it up? Would love to hear what you are doing this Christmas in your house! Comment below..
