Well it is Throw Back Thursday.......and I am enjoying working away with the Christmas tunes in the background. I have had Blue Christmas stuck in my head today which got me thinking........of Blue Christmas trees and decor galore. As many of you know I have had a wee bit of a Blue Love Affair this year, from teals to turquoise they are exciting to blend into spaces and palettes. We have a sense of calmness and the sense of comfort like a old pair of jeans, relaxed - we Trust - its TRUE BLUE.
Blue at Christmas doesn't have to be a depressing colour, its actually quite elegant, magical......and HOT! It you have wee ones about the house, the movie Frozen has brought blues, snow and ice right to the front door. Open the magic!
Looking at the baubles and not sure where to start with Blue? Focus your mind scape to that Tiffany Blue Box and satin ribbon - combined with sparkly silver snowflakes and navy baubles - the navy of twilight. Now you have it! White lights look stunning with blue decor as does blue lights if you are feeling bold! Remember to carry the accent over to your vignettes silver candle sticks and white candles.. maybe even tie twine around them with snowflakes! Of course snowmen can be fun to add in......maybe a top hat at your entrance table with a vase of carrots still with greenery and snowflakes! I smile just writing that one.........
Another favourite touch is adding some whimsy to the lighting........here is an idea with different blue ornaments and ribbons nothing short of stunning!
I hope this has given you some inspiration! Its truly about embracing season with your decor accents, layer your blues. whites and silvers - snowflakes and snowman Using the Blue palette will compliemtn any decor style while bringing Delight & Wonder wonder which is really what this spirit of Christmas does to our hearts!
