Silver and Gold Decorated Christmas Tree
This particular artificial tree has been in our home for a few Christmas seasons. As a matter of fact see it decorated:
The year I decorated in Blue and White which was so pretty. It’s also in front of the window this year.
The year I got ribbon happy, that makes me smile at my own self. A traditional tree with lots of ribbons.
Before we moved into the current home, I decorated it in Red and Silver one year and shared in a Christmas Home Tour.
This year I have decided to step outside of my comfort zone and use monochromatic colors. Gold and silver with white accents on the upstairs Christmas tree.
This tree was a challenge for me. I’m quite happy with traditional Christmas colors as you can see on my Christmas page. This year I wanted to do the upstairs tree different IF I had enough ornaments to pull it off.
We pulled all of the Christmas storage bins out of the attack and my hubby left me to it. Yes, I did make a giant over-sized mess in the process of pulling out ornaments but in that process, I discovered I had more gold and silver ornaments than I realized.
A visit to Pinterest is a must when making plans for any occasion or circumstance. I took some time to scroll through Gold and Silver decorated Christmas Trees on Pinterest and immediately realized it’s kind of hard to ‘see’ the ornaments so I created a plan for myself.
- Gold, Silver & White ornaments
- Traditional glass and plastic ornaments, differing tones and finishes
- More ornaments of various designs to match
- Floral picks
- Ribbon (lots of ribbon)
- White lights
I got straight to work on that sad little well worn 6 foot artificial Christmas Tree.
There are three different ribbons; a wide silver metallic lace ribbon, wide gold metallic Mylar ribbon and a narrow brown ribbon with gold design.
The ribbon helps hide any spots where you might be able to see through this old artificial tree and it creates contrast with the ornaments.
Top of the Tree
The perfect topper for this gold and silver tree had to be a gold star and of course I did not have one. A quick trip to Hobby Lobby paid off big time. Their Christmas season is on sale half price so I only paid $5 for my new gold star.
Large white poinsettia floral picks add a nice contrast to the silver and gold. These were not in my stash. I picked them up half price at Hobby Lobby also.
Because this tree is located in our Bonus room which is by the guest bedroom, it’s not for collecting gifts underneath. Instead, I added a couple of very simple decor items by the tree.
A vintage ladder back chair placed next to the tree was the perfect space to set up my Manger Scene. This Manger was purchased more than 40 years ago when my oldest daughter was a little girl. I remember vividly buying this set at Sear’s at the Mall. I enjoy placing each figure and setting it up every year as part of our traditional Christmas decorations.
