It’s been a few years since I have used red and white together in the front of my house. For several years I kept all the red in the family room and put all the white in the front of the house. So, I flocked my tree to give it a whole new look and couldn’t wait to put together a Letters to Santa themed Christmas tree in red and white this year.
I already had my color scheme in mind, but when I found these cute little mailboxes at the Target dollar spot, they pulled my theme together.
Red Velvet and White Birch Bows One of the things I mentioned in a previous post, Take Your Christmas Tree Up a Notch, was size and scale of ornaments.
It’s a 10 foot, full bodied tree and it needs big ornaments to fill it up. I have some extremely large white balls that I tucked into this tree and anything that was small went on the tips of the branches. To go along with my theme, I put two children’s desks around the tree, you know, for writing your letter to Santa. I’ve also got an old typewriter I used to fill in some space around the bottom of the tree. Finally, I popped in a few Santas to complete my themed Christmas tree display. Both my red poinsettias and white hydrangeas have been used in the past, but never together.
The red ornaments and poinsettias just pop against the light. Pin Red and White Christmas Tree Here
