A Very Pink Christmas

Next week, I’ll begin putting up my vast collection of Christmas decor. I wait all year for this because its one of my favorite things to do, and I feel privileged to be able to celebrate the birth of Christ — the reason for the season.  This year, decorating will begin the day after my twin sons’ birthday (Nov. 17).  I’ll pump Christmas music throughout the house and begin the process of putting up several custom-made wreaths, garland, ribbon, shelf displays, three Christmas trees and outdoor lights.  Whew!

Each year I introduce a new color into my decor.  So, this time around I’m considering fuchsia…but if only in my Christmas dreams.  I live with four males who would not like the prospect of having a pink tree or anything else pink for that matter.  But look at these photos.  I love the “A New Twist” color theme (top of page) from Pier 1, a combo of fuchsia, purple, ruby and blue. The pink pre-lit tree (christmascentral.com) has pink and clear lights; and these sassy stockings (brightandbold.com) are hot!  I’m pushing for pink! I’ll keep you posted…
