Hello, hello! I am so excited to share my modern, flocked, green and pink Christmas tree with you all today! This tree is loaded up with texture, simple modern ornaments, and homemade details.
I am also really happy to be joining the My Style Home Christmas Tree Edition blog hop today. This is my first time joining in, and I am loving seeing everyone’s beautiful trees so far. If you are coming from the always fabulous Delineate Your Dwelling, welcome! Thanks so much for coming by to check out my tree.
My New Favorite Flocked Tree
Let’s start with the tree, shall we? For the past few years, I have had a white artificial tree similar to this one. You can see how it looked in black, white, and coral or in all pink. Both of those looks were really fun, but after the white tree’s lights stopped working last Christmas, I decided to go a slightly different direction this year.
I still love the look of the white trees, but I wanted a slightly softer, more natural look, so I decided to go with a flocked tree.
I ended up choosing this 7.5′ flocked beauty, and I’m so happy with it. I love its shape and that it has some space between branches. I think it gives it a more natural look, plus it makes it easy to hang those ornaments!
Modern, Natural, Handmade Christmas Tree
I have to admit I struggled a bit with this year’s tree. I just wasn’t feeling the inspiration, you know? In the past, I have had a lot of really colorful trees, but this year I was feeling like I wanted something softer and prettier.
I decided to bring in lots of natural elements and textures mixed with ornaments with modern lines, but I couldn’t completely stay away from color, so I ended up going with a blush pink and deep green combo. I am so happy with how it all came together.
I brought in some of that natural texture element by placing the tree into a large basket I found at Home Goods (this one is similar). Then, I topped the tree off with a large paper star shade from Ikea.
I stuck some of the tree’s lights into the paper star so it lights up a bit. It’s subtle, but very pretty when the lights are out.
For ornaments and decorations, I started off by wrapping the tree with green velvet ribbon and simple wooden bead garlands. I made my own bead garlands by simply stringing wooden beads onto twine, but this ready made garland would work great too.
I am just so happy with how those paper ornaments turned out. Aren’t they pretty?
It’s super easy to customize those 3D paper ornaments to fit any color scheme and they fold flat to store for the next year!
And of course, I had to pick up some wrapping paper to fit in with the whole look. I was so stoked to find this pretty dark green pine cone wrap at Target (it even has the flocked look!), and I always love a pretty Sugar Paper box. I particularly love this pink one paired with black and white buffalo plaid ribbon.
