Hope you had a good Thanksgiving and aren’t saddened by putting away your fall decor. Well hunty, it’s that time…so just go on and say Bye Fall-licia! 😉
It seems as if many of us got a head start; although, some of us are holding on to the fall decor for as long as we can! Some are saying the rush to get Christmas decor up is due to the pandemic and in search of the joy Christmas season brings. When I decorate for Christmas, it’s usually not until after Thanksgiving. I actually enjoyed every moment so getting started early this year.
Today, I’m sharing My Berry Blush & Metals Christmas Decor Tour. If you love a pretty Christmas decorations then read along for some Christmas inspiration!
My Christmas Tree
I purchased my tree after Christmas in 2017. Same year as Hurricane Harvey here in Houston area, so I didn’t decorate that year, or the next year or the next year. This year, I have much joy unpacking my Tinsel Slim Metallic Ombre Tree with clear warm lights from the At Home store Houston. It comes in both 5ft and 7ft. I went with the 5 ft. and paid $23 getting it on clearance. I like this style because it can fit almost anywhere, so perfect for small spaces, apartments, dorms, etc. You can also go tree crazy and get one for every room and still pay less than you would for much larger faux trees. Also, Tinsel style trees are great because they come in almost every color you can imagine.
The photo below is how my tree looked pre-decor and fluffing. My ombre tree, starting from the bottom, is gold, champagne, silver and white. I love that it gives this vintage yet glam appeal which goes so well in my home. Slim trees such as this will save you plenty of space and also work great in small spaces. See more Slim Christmas Tree Styles here.
Deciding on Colors for Christmas Tree Ornaments
I decided to decorate using the same metals as the tree. Outside of the metals (gold, champagne and silver) I went with the same palette of Robert Stanley’s Glass Berry Ball Ornaments sold in a set of 26 at Hobby Lobby. They are a combination sparkly, matte and shiny finishes. I describe the actual colors to be a mix of Maroon, Rose Pinks and Gold, which would go perfect with my tree and plans to throw in Rose Gold along with all the other metals I’m working with. It will also look stunning in the space next to my favorite gold cocktail bar.
I began shopping for Christmas ornaments two weeks before Thanksgiving at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Hobby Lobby is 50% off all things Christmas, such a beautiful thing! Michaels is 40%. This sale is still going on and the percentage off will increase, but if you wait, you’ll only get the leftovers and returns.
I call my vision for my Christmas Tree, Romantic Feminine Glam, much like the rest of my house! So flowers were on top of my list. I found flowers in blush pink, white and gold with sequins and rhinestones, beautiful shimmer roses in gold and rose. Just so many blush Christmas decorations to choose from that it was hard to decide or not buy them all.
In the photos below, you have a glimpse of how all my decor came together. I stuck to shimmery and bling ornaments within my color. All those ornaments came from Hobby Lobby and At Home. The garland and other decor to come came from Michaels. More photos coming.
Decorating my Fireplace for Christmas in Blush and Gold
Because something seemed off with my fireplace along with my Christmas decor, I purchased a fireplace screen advertised on Facebook Marketbplace for $15. It was black, so I painted it gold with Rustoleum Bright Coat Metallic Spray Paint in gold. Looks much better now!
Here is a close up of the decorations on top of the fireplace. I am up to 8 reindeer now so I named them.
The faux shimmery pink and gold poinsettias are from Hobby Lobby and still available at some stores near me, but not online. You could purchase the bush of the flower heads and replace later if you wanted to, I loved these to fill out the top of the mantle. You can also, buy these separate or in packs of 3. I have all 3 options in my decor. These bushes go a long way though. The pink glass Christmas trees are from Robert Stanley’s Winter Blush Collection, and also purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I also placed the same garland that is on tree across mantle. There are two on the tree and two on the mantle. There is a string of cordless warm battery operated lights twisted along with the mantle garland (see first photo above). I hide the battery boxes behind the large faux poinsettias on both sides. By the way, Michael’s and Ross stores has best deals on lights, however Ross is a hit or miss. Here are some available online, but get them quick before they sell out. I advise getting your Christmas Decor as soon as it is available or you’ll be sorry you waited! Believe me, I know the feeling!
The 3 piece gold “JOY” stocking holder is from Target. I absolutely love it. It comes in a set of course and is available in both silver and gold and as of 11/29 is still in stock! It’s perfect for me, because others were too tall to fit below the television above the mantle. Since I only need two Christmas stockings (mine are from Hobby Lobby), I will just use a large bow for the center stocking holder using some shimmer blush ribbon from Walmart and following a quick 7 Step bow making tutorial on Pinterest, cause my bows I’ve been making since elementary school isn’t glam at all!
Final Touches of My Glam Berry, Blush & Metals Christmas Decor
Finally, my last touches to tree, fireplace, and of course the bar cart next to it.
Instead of an actual tree skirt, I instead put two white faux fur rugs together to mimic snow and then I sprinkled them with faux snow. You could also do a rose gold shimmer sparkle tree skirt like this one in the photo below. Click on photo to check availability. Again, Christmas decor sales out fast so start early.
I placed lighted gift boxes at the bottom and over-sized Christmas ornaments at the bottom of the tree. I also, decorated the opposite end of the fireplace with more shimmer, bling and metals.
For the tree topper, I have a gorgeous mirrored and antique gold Christmas Star, because it’s the “Christmas Star that Lights the Way”. See more Gold Star Christmas Tree Toppers.
The over-size ornaments below is from Michaels and the Pre-Lit Glitter Gift Boxes came from Kirklands. Below are more pink Christmas ornament ideas for getting this look at a affordable price.

Christmas Bar Cart Decor
So this is really my final touches, the cocktail bar. There is a previous post on how my bar cart looked prior to Christmas if interested just search for Gold Bar Cart makeover in the Search box to the right. For Christmas styling, I replaced a few things with these these gorgeous tall reindeer to the bottom whom I’ve named Vixen and Blitzen. Vixen and Blitzen did not come with the bow-tie with gem. I added that to give them more glam and feminine touch, also to coordinate with the theme! They already had gem antlers, so now they are perfect! I added garland around the liquors on the tray. Lastly for bottom of bar, I added a intricate distressed cone style Christmas tree. Find similar gold mirrored bar carts here.
For the top part of the bar, I added a garland across the top of the bar. The gold Merry Christmas sign and reindeer were perfect size. Do you see the perfect bow-tie styling for this confident reindeer! I happen to have smaller rose colored ribbon.
For Christmas season I decided on a large gold 3-D star to place inside my Any-Theme Frame. I created the frame over my bar (Any-Theme Frame) to have a convenient and transitional focal point to place art and decor throughout the year. I also added candles in the back on top of the bar, the pink shimmered faux poinsettia and two gold Christmas trees. These same Christmas trees are on the mantle and are from Hobby Lobby.
This concludes my Berry Blush and Metals Christmas Decor Tour. I hope you’ve been inspired!
Have yourself a Berry Merry Christmas!
