Ocean Seaside Pink, Teal and Gold Glam Christmas Tree Styling
As mentioned earlier, my home is already 90% coastal. However, this is my first time styling my Christmas tree in coastal decor. It is perfect because the color palette of Pink, Teal, Gold and Silver already exists in my home.
This Christmas I decided to go with a flocked 6.5 ft flocked Christmas tree. Just a little taller than my tree last year, but super ready right out of the box.
I purchased my coastal Christmas ornaments at Hobby Lobby and at At Home Store. The ornaments from At Home Store are from the Seas & Greetings collection and the Hobby Lobby are a part of the Robert Stanley “At The Beach Collection” availabe while inventory lasts at your local stores and online. Please do call your local store for accurate inventory because the stock in stores seems to vary from the website.
When styling my tree, I used 3 different ribbon types and colors which were a gold shimmer, a wedding pearl lined satin white and a shimmery silver. These were all from Hobby Lobby. By the way, everything Christmas at Hobby Lobby is 50% off.
As for my tree spray topper, I went with a champagne glitter ribbon, silver, gold and rose gold sprays from Hobby Lobby. My tree is also on a rotating tree stand from Amazon (see video below), so I had to make sure my spray tree topper looked fabulous from all angles.
Both At Home and Hobby Lobby does deliver if there isn’t one in your area. Also, you didn’t see my Christmas post last year, check it out here to see how I styled my tree in another collection by Robert Stanley.
