Guest Blogger: A Green & Gold Christmas

December 1, 2010 at 7:00 am , by

Nicole Balch of Making it Lovely is one of my favorite bloggers for her impeccable taste and always-inspiring design boards. While many of us use the same mix of heirloom ornaments on the Christmas tree year after year, it can be really chic to stick to a particular color scheme or theme. Check out Nicole’s “dream” tree below, and tell us about your tree decorating plans in the comments.

Nicole from Making it Lovely here. My blog follows my home decorating projects, and normally I like to go all out with my Christmas tree decorations. This year though, I have a very curious one and a half year old, so my tree trimmings will have to be of the unbreakable variety.

I started daydreaming about a green and gold bedecked tree, so I put together a design board for it. It may not be feasible for me right now, but hopefully some elements can make their way into your homes instead!

  1. I love Making It Lovely and am so excited to see her awesome picks here. The acorns are especially cute. Thanks Nicole!

  3. I love checking out people’s tree ideas … though I rarely stray away from my red/silver/white scheme. This though, I could totally see myself doing. Thanks for the great ideas Nicole!


  4. I was looking at the Crate and Barrel ornaments this last weekend–I love them! Since they’re a bit pricey, I’m hoping to get them on sale at the end of the season. Already planning for next year’s tree! I love the combo of trimmings here.


  5. I did this color scheme this year! I used gold birds, I found glittered gold feathers and snowflakes and used the green and brown and gold ornaments. Wish I had seen this article first, I like those Crate and Barrel ornaments and love the acorn garland – that’s beautiful.
