A Pink & Green Holiday- Holiday Prep

Good Morning All! Happy Wednesday, Happy December, Happy Hanukkah and happy all things that make the holidays magical! Just wanted to pop in because I have been dreaming of a pink and green Christmas and have found some amazing inspiration photos to share with you. I have been tweaking my holiday decor and purchased more bottle brush trees for my collection. I couldn’t pass them up from the $1 bin at Target and love how they look paired with sparkly candles and poinsettias.  Simple groupings of colors give such a fun holiday feel (p.s. I feel like that was such a Buddy the Elf comment)!  A little holiday prep is perfect in my dining room with its blue and white curtains and pink punchy rug.

Here are the fun pics I found to inspire you to add a little holiday prep to your home- ‘Tis the Season!

First up, beautiful table decor using multi-colored votives and ornaments. Mix and match colors to coordinate with your place settings.

Next, some pink and navy perfection with a pop of gold for a colorful mantle display.

I love the blue and white collection, along with stocking initials to create added interest.

And I would be remiss not to include bottle brush trees in all their glory!

These adorable preppy “Hunter” rain boot Christmas tree ornaments from Lemon House Design via Etsy would ensure such a colorful tree!

Happy LUCKY Friday all! Today is always a special day for me because it was my late Nana’s birthday and St. Patrick’s Day so it doesn’t get much luckier than that. I have been loving all things green lately (isn’t it funny how you can get hooked on a color?) so what better day than the present to share my green snaps with you!
