Silver and pink christmas

Can you believe Thanksgiving is over and we are just days away from Dec and then Christmas? I can 't believe how fast this year is just whizzing by.

Hello friends .I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you were all Blessed.

I pulled out my decorations and opted for a new color this year.Pink and silver.I've been working on my Christmas ornaments for three months now. I have done various color schemes for over 40 years mostly in the red and green hues. I've done the blue snowman motif and everything  in between.

But the softness of lite pink kept calling me. I searched ideas on Pinterest for months to get ideas.Then came up with my own.

My entire apt is already shabby chic with pink decor so going with pink was not a stretch
So I set a very pretty soft table with silver and pink accents

every surface got a new facelift

the hutches got makeovers

I love the softness it reflects with just little pops of pink.not overwhelming just feminine enough

Enough to satisfy my pink need but not enough to make you gag over it.

tiny little houses under glass or on a cake plate

This is one of those ceramic trees from the early sixties I spray painted a soft pink then covered in pink glitter

the colors are the same including this centerpiece that I am using for our annual Women's dinner at my church

my mantel is done in pink fur and snow

I love how my tree turned out I made every ornament on the tree.The glitter fairy is smiling down on me.It's amazing how modge podge, spray paint and tons of glitter can transform every thing.I mean everything

These are not wrinkles in my tablecloth but embroidered snowflakes

so shiny and bright
