I spent the weekend putting the finishing touches on my Christmas decor, and after three days of decking the halls, holiday music and hot cocoa by the fire…I’m fully in the spirit. One of the things I love about decorating for Christmas is the endless array of color palettes from which to choose. Gone are the days of green and red being the only options, and looks can range from glam to modern to totally rustic. For today’s board, I went all-out girly with an over-the-top palette of berry, fuchsia and gleaming gold. There’s a part of me that’s always dreamed of thinking pink for Christmas, but I haven’t dared to go there yet. For this party, I’d don a feminine dress wrapped up with an oversized bow, drape the mantle in pink tinsel and create a centerpiece in an ombré of shades ranging from cream to magenta. I’d love to know…would you dare to go pink for the holidays?

    Every single one of the monochromatic collages you ensemble is beautiful, really they are stunning. Would there be any chance for you to provide medium/high resolution printables? They are gorgeous and I would love to be able to hang one or two of them on my walls! 🙂

    I apologize if I’m asking too much!

    Thank You!

      That’s so awesome – thanks Silvie! At this time, unfortunately I can’t offer these as high-res images since the individual pieces are pulled from lots of different photographers. But definitely something to think about for the future! This one would look pretty framed up on a wall, wouldn’t it?

    Actually back in college my roommates and I had a HUGE pink christmas tree with pink lights and we used fuchsia for the ornaments. It was extremely girly, and we loved everything about it haha.

      Oh that sounds incredible…definitely something I’d have been able to get away with in my “single girl” days, but not so sure if my husband would go for it now. 😉

    Absolutely, I’d go pink for the holiday…or really anytime. Berry colors work so well with gold or green. Anyway, this is such a lovely board. Happy Christmas planning!

    I agree with the first comment–these collages are always beautiful! What program do you use to create them?

    I also love the idea of going with a bold, non-traditional holiday color palette. That ombre centerpiece is just stunning!

    I love pink or any non-traditional colors for the holidays. I would definitely do hot pink accents on a sparkly tree~ to give it a glamorous vibe. 🙂 I’m totally inspired to re-create that pink and white gift wrap…so pretty.

    This makes my mouth pucker!

    I’d definitely do a non-traditional color scheme… Growing up, we had 2 trees. One tree was filled with a mix of all the tacky red & green ornaments that we had collected over the years. The other tree was coral, gold, and peach. The ornaments were like little pieces of art. We even draped strands of pearls on the tree instead of garland. It was our “pretty” tree.
