I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Daydream: Pink Girly-Girl Christmas

Christmas is near and my house is full of holiday cheer with traditional Christmas decor and traditional carols playing softly in the background (none of this Britney Spears make-up-my-own-xmas-carols-crap!)

However, even though our house is decorated in red, green, gold, and silver, I am much more open to contemporary Christmas decor than I am to contemporary Christmas carols!

For instance, wouldn't it be just darling to have a home decorated in pink for the holidays? Even more, wouldn't it be beautiful in the girly dream home I featured here in all it's pink decor delight? LOL

This was my letter to Santa Claus this year:

Dear Santa,
Please make my boyfriend colour blind for the holidays so he will not notice if the house is decorated from top to bottom in pink.

That's all.


If my wish came true (which it did not, in case you were wondering) this is what I would do:

I would drape my pink door with fuzzy white boas....

I would display pretty pink ornaments on my mantel and drape some more fuzzy white boas...

I would hang pink stockings in anticipation of Santa filling them with sugar plums and pink candy...

I'm dreaming of a PINK Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten, and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I'm dreaming of a PINK Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be PINK!

All my Christmas trinkets would be pretty and dainty...

I would have pink, glittery bulbs hanging from all my white, crystal chandeliers...

Ornaments would be soft, pink, and feathery...

Where possible, everything would be hung by silky, pink ribbon....

Gifts would be wrapped in pretty pink paper and adorned with pretty pink bows and stars, and bulbs....

I would wish you a Merry Christmas in pink, pink, pink....

I would sit with my fellow girly girls and make pink Christmas crafts while sipping pink champagne and eating pink marshmallowy desserts...

To make the above pink superstar snowflakes:

* Cut small snowflakes from folded paper, using the same technique you learned in grade school.
*Add shimmer with spray glitter and attach a tinsel ornament to the center.
*Hot-glue the snowflakes to purchased silver stars.
*Use one as a tree topper or group them as ornaments to hang on the tree or from a chandelier.

Tell me, what is your Christmas decor style?
What did you ask Santa for this year?
