Romantic Christmas Decorating Ideas 2018
Who says we should limit our holiday decor to the traditional red and green ornaments. Being a single woman I wanted to feel a love for my Christmas decorations 2018 that’s beyond my imagination. I took my Christmas decor to another level, by turning my decorations into a fairytale. My Christmas designs made me feel like a princess for the holiday season. If Cinderella had a Christmas tree with the Prince who found her glass slipper, their Christmas tree would look something like the one I designed.
King Of Christmas Tree
Choosing the perfect Christmas tree can be difficult. I’ve used my 8 foot flocked King of Christmas Tree for 2 years and it added a nice winter feel in my sunny California home. I purchased it from Amazon and it came without lights, click here to see it. Although this tree added a nice touch for my Christmas decorations 2018, next year I will try a different tree, to change things up a bit. A review of this Christmas tree is coming up soon and it will feature the good, the bad and the flocking hahaha. Click here to see my pink Christmas decorating ideas video from last year. Here is a quick link to my 2017 pink Christmas blog post. Click here.
Romantic Homes At Christmas
Decorating with romantic themes can make your space feel so cozy and beautiful. Romantic decorating can be created using any type of style. If your style is Farmhouse or modern glam, you can style make it feel romantic. My theme is French Opulent, which means my Christmas decorations 2018 will included ornate pieces which I either custom-made or romantic decor I found while out shopping. Like this gorgeous Cupid Angel with a horn sitting on the mantel I purchased on Amazon. Click Here. It actually sat on the other end of the mantel but the lighting was bad so I moved it here to get better lighting for the photo. This was my first time ever decorating a mantel. Honestly, I didn’t want to decorate it at all after building it. (Click here to see) I chose gold for my Christmas decorations 2018 colors because of its richness and elegance.
Adding Roses to Christmas Decor
For the past 3 years I’ve tried adding roses to my Christmas decorations and the end result always seemed off. When you think of Christmas it usually includes pine, fir, cedar, juniper types of foliage. It was hard to make roses on my tree look good in photos for some reason. My problem was sticking a single rose on the Christmas tree, all over the tree. Then one day I tried grouping them together and decorating with them that way and voila! Finally the vision came to life! I grouped some of them together on the mantel and also tried them once again on the tree. It worked perfectly! I purchased this really beautiful silver pitcher on Amazon and filled it with these gorgeous roses. Click here for details on this beauty.
Christmas Tree Wraps
I chose to use Christmas tree wraps instead of ribbon because the tree was so big and it usually swallows up the ribbons. Draping a gorgeous fabric on the tree not only looks amazing but it also helps Christmas trees evolve. I know I took a risk adding a wrap to the tree and possibly embarrassing myself on Youtube (click here to see the video) but I wanted to start a new trend for trees. I’ve never seen anyone add a wrap to a tree before. I searched the internet including Pinterest, Youtube and Google, but I found nothing. The wrap I chose added elegance to my tree. Its satin and white softness created the romance I was looking seeking.
Recycling Christmas decorations from last year helped me put this all together. In addition to the new items I purchased in this years Christmas decorations 2018 haul (click here to see) I found some amazing Christmas decorations that brought this entire look together nicely. How adorable is this The Night Before Christmas Book! Click here to shop.
