Blue Christmas Tree

The tree seems the perfect culmination of our Blue Christmas series, doesn’t it?

The quintessential symbol of traditional Christmas (aside from the nativity, of course!)…

I confess that it was a challenge for me to branch out (get it?!?!) from traditional and neutral colors to incorporate blue on my tree.  In fact, if you caught my full Christmas Home Tour on Wednesday, you saw my all-neutral tree.  But there’s nothing like the last minute for inspiration, right?  I took a cue from my blue wreath and added the beautiful gray-blue ribbon as garland.

I, naturally, used lots of my blue glitter pine cones.  And I love how the shimmer contrasts my DIY book page ornaments.

Though I traded out my few gold ornaments for blue ones (closest I could find to matching my gray-blue ribbon and blue glitter), I kept all my silver and book page ornaments, twine-tied bells, and pine cones from my neutral tree.  I love all the different textures.

And I topped the tree off with my silver and blue angel announcing, “Joy to the World” (which, yes, I did rob from my blue mantel… musical Christmas decorations going on over here!).

And I love how the blue gives an interesting twist on tradition while complementing the decor in my living room.  Most of all, I love Christmas and the good news we have to celebrate!  Thank you for stopping by and celebrating with me. :)
