Today I’m excited to show you my third and final Christmas tree of 2019. Inspired by a vintage plaid wool blanket, this is my Navy and Green Christmas Tree.
Yes, friends, I’m finally sharing the last of my Christmas decor this week. Today it’s the tree in my living room. If you want to see the rest of my living room, I’m sharing a full tour HERE.
If you were following me a year ago around this time, this tree might look familiar. The reason: I took inspiration from last year’s emerald city tree and simply switched things up a bit with more color and flair. In times past, I’ve started from scratch with most of my trees. However, I didn’t want to have to redecorate my living room, so I decided to work with what I had (my green velvet chairs and navy ottoman, for example) and just spice things up.
I had considered two different color schemes for this tree. My first thought was to incorporate pink. However, when I considered the rest of my Christmas decor as well as the general decor of Bayberry House, navy blue seemed like a better choice. Here’s what I came up with:
I think the tree turned out well. What do you think?
Navy proved to be a smart choice for this tree and room. I even mixed it up a bit by adding icy blue ornaments in both a matte and a shiny finish. I think this made everything come to life.
Per usual, I first put on the ribbon. (You can find my Christmas Tree Ribbon Tutorial here.) My original plan was to use this navy and green plaid ribbon I found at Michaels. Unfortunately, on the tree, the pattern was dark, and the ribbon appeared cheap and almost see-thru. It needed something else. Fortunately, I had also picked up this green ribbon with a fair isle-inspired design at JOANN Fabrics and Crafts. I decided to add that to the tree as a secondary ribbon. This was the pop it needed! This was the first time putting two types of ribbon on a tree, but it’s a good look.
Once all the ribbon was in place, I began filling the tree with ornaments I already had. I have totes and totes of ornaments, so I wasn’t intending to buy lots more. However, to create the look I was after, I had to purchase navy blue and icy blue ones. (I thought I owned every color of ornament imaginable.)
I was so excited to use ornaments that hadn’t made an appearance on my trees in several years. One example is the glass clip-on candle ornaments I got from Crate and Barrel several years ago. (No longer sold.) Using them again made me happy.
I also have a set of gold sequin ornaments from Target that I have collected over the years. I have unicorns, lions, and (new this year) elephants! It’s fun to add a quirky touch to my trees, and these ornaments do just that. (I could not find a link for these online. I purchased mine in-store.)
Last Christmas my mom bought me a “First Christmas at Bayberry House” so I was delighted to hang that on my tree this year. It’s so cute! Because it’s somewhat neutral, it’s likely to match any future tree as well.
I’m in love with this vintage deer ornament. if it looks familiar that’s because I found two of them this year and used the other as the “trunk” of my vintage ornament tree wall decor. It was the perfect trunk and looks fabulous on my tree, too!
As you can see, I tucked a few presents under the tree. I even attached my new vintage-inspired printable gift tags. I’m loving how they look. In case you missed them, I shared a free download for them here.
Last year I had big mirrored stars on my tree. I decided to leave those off this time. Since the tree topper matched them, I opted to buy a new one. I found this gold star at Target and thought it fit this tree beautifully.
Finally, because I’m crazy about it, I decided to reuse this gold, crystal, and pearl garland I purchased from Balsam Hill in 2018. It might be my favorite beaded garland, so it simply had to be on the tree again.
And that, my friends, is my Navy and Green Christmas Tree! What do you think?
A part of me wishes I had created an entirely new tree, but since I had two other brand new trees this year, I’m cutting myself some slack. In case you missed those, you can see my Cozy Lodge Christmas Tree here and my Woodland Glam Christmas Tree here.
If you want to see even more of my trees, I have a huge collection of all of my Christmas Trees in this post here.
As it stands, I’m so happy I decided to incorporate blue into my previous green tree. It inspired pops of blue in the Christmas decor throughout my living room. A win-win I’d say! Here’s a sneak peek! As promised, I also shared a full tour of my living room. You can see the rest of this colorful space here.
I’ll meet you back here tomorrow for more seasonal inspiration. I hope you’ve enjoyed this tree!
