Pretty Pastel Themed Christmas Tree (Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop)

I’m bringing in an unexpected color palette to my holiday decor with a pastel-themed Christmas tree.

Pale pinks, dusty blues, soft lavender, and snowy white ornaments create an elegant vintage look for holiday entertaining.

Welcome to the 5th annual Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop. I look so forward to hosting this event each year.

This year we have 20 talented home decor bloggers each sharing their decorated Christmas trees.

So settle in with your favorite cup of coffee or tea and get ready for some amazing Christmas tree inspiration!

You will find all the links at the end of this post. I’ve seen a sneak peek of all the trees and you definitely do not want to miss them.

If you are visiting from Redneck Rhapsody welcome! Didn’t you love Trina’s blue and white Christmas tree? I’m a huge fan of blue and white decor.

In fact, I love it so much that my tree last year was blue flocked with blue and white buffalo check ribbon.

To be honest, I was a little nervous to share my tree this year because last year’s tree was so popular.

Each year I challenge myself to decorate my tree in a different theme or style to give you new ideas and inspiration. That is one of the things I LOVE about this blog hop.

In all five years of hosting, no two trees are ever the same. The same colors and similar trees may be used, but they always look so different.

You can use these same decorating ideas for any size tree too. It doesn’t matter if it’s a tabletop tree or a 9′ tree. 🙂

Colorful Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

A pastel color palette might seem like an unusual choice for holiday decorating, but I am seriously loving it! And, I hope you do too.

I brought back my gorgeous flocked tree to create the perfect backdrop for all of the pretty pastel glass Christmas ornaments.

DIY Pastel Christmas Decorations

One of the ways I keep decorating costs down is to DIY new ornaments and decorations. In keeping with the pastel Christmas colors, I made a vintage-inspired pastel ornament wreath to hang over my mantel.

I’ll be sharing the full mantel reveal later this week, so be sure to stop by for that! You can also see the gnome Christmas ornaments and DIY donut ornaments I shared last week.

A few ornaments from my collection, like the cutest pink jeep ornament, were the perfect compliment to the pastel colors.

One of my favorite things to add to a tree is a wired ribbon. I normally go with a 2.5″ ribbon in my main color scheme, and a coordinating 1.5″ wired ribbon.

This year I went with a beautiful pink and gold ribbon. It was a little hard to find a ribbon that went with my pastel color scheme. Hobby Lobby to the rescue!

Christmas Tree Topper

My daughter and I fell in love with this silver star tree topper. It really sparkles in person when the lights are on.

Tree toppers are something I struggle with, especially if I am decorating in an unusual theme or style.

You can see how I used a collection of Christmas picks and stems for a tree topper HERE. 

If you struggle with tree toppers too, Carrie from Lovely, etc. rounded up a great collection of 25 unique tree toppers HERE.

Christmas Decorations 

My vintage Santa that my sister-in-law made for me over 25 years ago looks like it was custom made to stand next to this tree doesn’t it?

So many happy memories bringing this Santa back out. There was a wrought iron candle attached to Santa’s hand that broke during my recent move.

I’m hoping to find a replacement for it.

These pastels are refreshing. I do love that star tree topper! Yes, that beautiful vintage Santa looks like you designed your tree around him. Beautiful job.

Michelle, I love your pastel tree! It's so lovely and feminine, and matches the vibe in your cozy winter bedroom. I'm glad you found the pink ribbon at HL...that really tied it all together! Thanks for hosting this hop each year, my friend. I really enjoy being a part of it! Pinned :)

I love the change from the traditional red and green sometimes. Love the pastels.

Your pastel tree is so feminine and gorgeous. I think it has a Victorian look. Love this tree Pinning

I think your tree is stunning Michelle. I always like the challenge of stepping out of my comfort zone with my tree each year. I also agree that Hobby Lobby always has the best ribbons. Thanks so much for continuing the hop again this year. I am enjoying seeing all the trees and pinning them for ideas for next year.
