We are going to have a very blue, blue Christmas, but it will be a very merry blue Christmas! Go ahead you can keep on singing the melody. I have embraced the bold and beautiful navy color palette that I delivered for fall and now melding into Christmas. I’m so excited to share A Very Merry Blue Christmas Tour with you today as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Series featuring over 45 top decor bloggers and hosted by my friend Krista from The Happy Housie. If you are hopping over from Jenna Kate at Home then let me give you a very special welcome!
A Very Merry Blue Christmas Tour
It’s a very merry blue Christmas over here at the Wilson household. This is the first time I’ve decorated with navy and white for the holidays ever. I seriously loved how much the living room looked during the fall and decided to slightly transition the navy blue and white theme into Christmas decor! It was easy and fun!
I clipped holly sprigs from the front yard to adorn the mantel. The mantel theme was snowy white Christmas villages, trees, and reindeer. Those cute village houses were from the Target Dollar Spot Bins! I bought them last year but was happy to see them again on the shelves this year. I hoped to grab up a few more, but waited to long.
The inspiration for this years blue and white Christmas tree were these beautiful DIY gold leaf ornaments. Please click on that link to see how easy they are to make for yourself. They added such a glamorous touch to our tree!
The coffee table centerpiece came straight from the yard. Don’t you just love free flowers? I do! My camellias bloom during November and December each year. They are a gift to the garden when everything else dies and withers at first frost. Camellias are quite tricky to work with though. I love floating their blooms in water but understand that one clipping of these gorgeous blooms will only last 24-48 hours tops.
Camellias though are my most favorite evergreen bush to plant in the yard. Check out my favorite Fall Camellia Recommendations HERE.
So we’ve got greenery and flowers and now we need soft and cushy pillows! I’ve gathered so many pillows that my husband is wondering if I have a pillow addiction. This fall I decided to pare down on my pillow compulsion and only buy pillow covers. Feel free to check out my favorite 15 Blue and White Christmas Pillow Covers, several which you see below!
Here is a little view across the room.
And because I get questioned all the time about “where is your TV?”. Well, I don’t show this angle ever because it still isn’t what I want it to be. We are using an old desk as a TV stand. I haven’t found a stand that I like (and can afford) yet. …….. Oh yes, as I write this, I am watching President Bush 41’s funeral, and that is what you see on my TV. What a beautiful and moving tribute that ceremony was.
Once my gorgeous camellia blooms faded away, I replaced them with fresh evergreens to make a longer lasting Christmas Centerpiece for the coffee table. Not to mention that the fresh greens smell amazing!
I hope you enjoyed my very merry blue Christmas tour! Next up on the tour is my friend Norma from Paint Me Pink!
Today I’m joined by some talented friends who are also sharing part of their Christmas home tour with you…
