A Pastel Christmas ~ Shabby Chic Christmas ~ Merry Christmas Everyone!

Have any of you thought of a pastel Christmas?  I love the room above -
it's sort of a blend between shabby chic and a pastel Christmas.  It's super
girly but tons of fun.

Pink glasses with gold rimmed dishes.

Pastel candy covered almonds...

These magazine clippings are from Home Companion magazine.
They absolutely show that a "Pastel" Christmas can be very
well done and lots of fun.

Silver finishes for a touch of glam.

Bolder colors to accent the pastels.

A pastel Christmas is great if you have young
ones and kids would love the color scheme.

I haven't made paper chains in a long time -
all you need is a pair of scissors, a stapler
and lots of bright fun wrapping paper or
origami paper.

Wrap all of your presents up in pink!

How about a paper and button gingerbread house?

You can make a wonderful decorative ball with vintage ornaments.

What do you think?  It may not be for everyone but
would you ever do a pastel Christmas?  Or even
perhaps a miniature version for your daughter's room?

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I think that is Brooke's (Velvet & Linen) daughter in this article!

We have a wonderful Christmas showhouse here in Atlanta, and one year there was a different Christmas tree in every single bedroom. I thought it was a lovely thing to have a special tree in each room.

I have always wanted to decorate according to a color theme, but in the end stick with the traditional red and green. Blogs have enabled me to vicariously enjoy the different color schemes that people use to decorate for the holidays!

Just added you back to my blog roll - it mysteriously disappeared last month, and I am slowly but surely recreating it. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Karen this is lovely! Makes me feel like a little girl again. Merry Christmas dear one!

That's So Shabby said...

That's So Shabby just HAS to have paper chains next Christmas. And that beautiful beaded ball is to die for!! I think I can achieve that by a styrofoam ball, faux pearls and long rhinestone pins.
Lovely blog! I am a follower, won't you follow me too please? Merry Christmas! I am glad I stumbled across your blog. I will be back often.

I love the idea of a pastel mini Christmas for a little girl's room. We just did a post on how pastel was big in fashion this year and how it translates to interiors. I should have linked these photos- very pretty!
