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

12,609 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.

You can find vintage Shiny-Brite ornaments, like this one on my white dining room tree, at yard sales and antique stores. You'll also find vintage-looking Christmas ornaments at big-box retailers, like Target.

If you can't find enough old ornaments, look for vintage-looking ones at your favorite store.

A little plaid pink-and-green ornaments fits well with the preppy theme. This one is a few years old, from Martha Stewart's holiday line with Kmart.
None of these ornaments are old, but they look it!
The pink bell is broken, but it's very special because it belonged to my grandmother. I had to find a place for it on my pink-and-green Christmas tree.
I used a scrap of pink-and-green moire plaid from a remnant roll as a makeshift tree skirt.

      @Atta Girl Amy it's more the fluffy white and pink that tugs at my heartstrings. In real life though, I am a stark minimalist. Go figure! :)
