Pink Christmas Tree



I am debating doing something totally different this year... a PINK Christmas tree!! I would love a lavender one, but not only can I not find the perfect shade of lavender, but pink matches our decor better. A pink pre-lit tree would be super easy and carefree! I also LOVE the traditional Frasier fur, but I have heard you can't find them here. I don't know if that's true or not, but if it is, I think I'd rather have a fake! What are your thoughts? I want to order one soon if I'm going to do it!!

I have a gorgeous faux (can't bring myself to say "fake") 9-10 foot Frasier Fir. I bought it... drum roll, please... at Hobby Lobby, and it was the best purchase we made that Christmas. I never thought I would go faux, but no watering is a plus. Also, Thymes makes a wonderful Frasier Fir home mist and candle if you miss the smell of a fresh tree.

My only suggestion concerning a pink (or any other color) tree is that, as cute and whimsical as it would be this year, do you really want to invest the time and money into something you might not want next year?

Don't mean to be the Scrooge! I guess I am just a traditionalist. I KNOW whatever you decide on you will make it phenomenal!

Blessings,
Beverly

oh you have to!!! You can decorate it in nothing but green! Or all white and silver or silver and gold... you could do something fantastic with it!

What does hubs say about this??

I LOVE the idea. And believe me, going faux was the best thing we ever did!

Haven't gone faux yet but thinking about it so I can decorate early. Why don't you try using a small, pink tree in addition to your large one?

Love it but agree with Bevysblog. You might only like it one year. If your good with that, go for it!

I would do pink for a playroom or family room, but I am just partial to the classic green. We went fake when we moved to Honduras since you cannot find real ones there and mother never turned back. They are SO easy and look great for weeks on end!

Travelbug Mom said...

Agree with Kappa Prep - maybe in the playroom - have the kids put "THEIR" ornaments on it - trust me, over the years they really accumulate!
MY vote is to STAY REAL and TRADITIONAL....

There is a GREAT tree lot in Hyde Park every year. They sell fraiser firs and they are freshly cut from NC. I'll send the details.

Kohls has the greatest Pink trees and every year they sell out. My neighbor bought one and it has stayed up year round in her daughter's pink playroom. It is adorable. There are so many cute pink ornaments this year too.
Good luck.

I have a friend who has super classy taste and she would say, "Do it, now!"

I, on the other hand, am an traditionalist and a pink Christmas tree seems akin to the leg lamp from "A Christmas Story".

It would be fun, though, I admit. Would you all wear pink to take photos in front of it and still be coordinated? I couldn't do it as my only tree. If you go for it, please post photos!

I have a smaller "faux" tree in my entrance that I decorate with Lilly P. ornaments. It's my own little slice of pink and green. Can't wait to see what you decide.
