This year I was inspired to create a new themed tree... the romantic cottage Christmas tree!!
I knew I was going to put this tree in my bedroom which is decorated in a French country style.
Where better to display this tree than in front of some purple toile curtains?
For this tree, I was drawn to the softer pastel colors...
...as if the ornaments had sat in a box and faded.
Additionally, I didn't want a "loud" tree in my bedroom. This one had to be soft!
I also added in some dried roses.
It was a little bit by accident. I had not intended too, but you see, they sat neglected in the vase forever and dried. (They were alive in this post - yeah like a month ago. SHH!)
I was walking by the dried flowers in the vase as I was putting ornaments on this tree.
And the vision struck!
So I tucked them into the tree.
And I liked how it looked. So I tucked more in.
It really goes with the romantic cottage look, don't you think?
I liked their faded color. They matched the ornaments too.
It was coincidence that this romantic tree matched the drapes!
For this tree, I was drawn to a pastel color palette.
Also, there are a few mercury glass ornaments tucked in here and there.
The tree topper came from an Etsy shop. Isn't it lovely? It is actually an ornament but I secured it to the top of the tree. It matches the tree perfectly, both in color and style!
I prefer viewing the tree at night time.
The soft glow of the tree provides some nice ambient light, doesn't it?
I love laying in bed at night looking at the twinkling lights.
However, it looks nice in the daytime too.
You can create your own romantic cottage tree too - go for softer colors, metallics, and ornaments that look more handmade.
I also prefer the look of the flocked tree with these muted colors. The flocked tree also seems more romantic to me too!
I hope you all enjoyed my tree!
