Preppy Pink & Green Christmas Tree With Vintage Shiny-Brite Ornaments

13K Views
Like, oh my God. This Christmas tree is totally tubular, fer shur. Seriously, it's like a total Betty of a Christmas tree. Those pink and green ornaments are so rad.
Why am I talking like a Valley Girl, straight out of the 1980s?
It might have something to do with the preppy pink-and-green Christmas tree in my dining room. I was a child of the 80s, and the color scheme took me back to my big hair, Valley-speak adolescence!
I've been collecting vintage Shiny-Brite ornaments, including some from my grandmother, and other pink and green decorations so I could give my white Christmas tree a vintage, preppy, girly look for the holidays.
I also tucked in glittery pink and green poinsettia blossoms and strung a beaded green garland through the branches. I used a scrap of moire plaid fabric as a makeshift tree skirt.
The pink-and-green tree inspired me to decorate the rest of the dining room in pastels, using other vintage items, like glittery cardboard houses. You can see the rest of the space on my blog. http://www.attagirlsays.com/2015/12/06/vintage-white-christmas-tree/
And you don't want to miss my Touch of Vintage Christmas Home Tour. There you'll find room-after-room of Christmas decorating inspiration using vintage finds.

    My vintage ornaments are the ones I put on the tree just to fill in spaces. I will look at them differently now. Mine are over 40 years old, which my mother used to say makes anything antique. Thank you for evoking memories.

      @Barbarajoshevlin Me too. I have some from my youth (40's and 50's) and others that I have collected over the years, no family or friends that would want them. They are too much trouble to care for, they want plastic , etc. Sad, but we are now in the
