An Extra-Bright Holiday: Pastel Christmas Décor Ideas

Pastel-Christmas-Décor-Ideas_04

You say you’re not a “red and green” girl — but those are the colors you have to put up for Christmas? Think again! Here are a whole raft of pastel-colored Christmas and holiday decorations in blue, pink, lavender, purple, cream, and gold that can hold their own against any darker hues. Who wouldn’t love a lavish pink bow with a “rose” at its center, trimmed with silver accents and pink ornaments? An evergreen wreath above your mantel will look smashing with pale-red, rose, white, or even blue ribbon threaded through it — and matched up with stockings of the same shades, it’s instant cheer. Pale greens can be both soothing and elegant in ornaments and trims; for that matter, flock your tree white, deck with pale coral, blue, and lavender ornaments and paper chains (remember those?), and you’ll wow your guests.

Trees can come in all shades, including silver, white, and blue beading; string pearls around a tiny tree on a dressing table, or loop them through a crystal chandelier with pink chiffon bows and blue and purple ornaments. A white “bird cage” is an elegant base for pink, silver, red, or a host of other pastels to match the demure quilted stockings hanging on the white mantel; a green tree bedecked with pink bows, white doves, and shiny blush-colored gold-trimmed ornaments is an excellent backdrop for pink- and blue-wrapped presents. Have a “winter frolic” of pale blue trees in a bed of cotton “snow,” or spray branches white, loop tiny white lights through them, and trim with silver balls and a lighted translucent base. Take a look through these elegant, glowing pastel decorations for Christmas, and have fun!
