Well, AQUA, SILVER, WHITE and then in my new room, BROWN AND GRAY AND SILVER! Oh dearest, it is so beautiful!

I only put white lights on our green trees but I fill my white tree with pale green and pink - super fun!

Silver Strands said...

I love changing colors annually. This year we're green - delightful, bright green with splashes of red. It's oh-so-pretty and happy. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Koralee!

Carol said...

Love your colors...Mine are silver and red, with sparkly snowflakes, snow houses and of course, all my tiny frames with pictures of my family....old and new!!

Monica said...

Good morning :) I love your colors -- they look so beautiful together. My colors pretty much include everything. I would feel guilty leaving out some of the ornaments in favor of others, especially since they only get to come out of storage for such a short time :)

delia hornbook said...

Those are beautiful colours. I always used to have a theme but now since my home is retro i like all the old fashioned colours and anything really goes ;-)) including ceiling decorations and paper chains ;-) I would never have had those a few years ago shock horror of it. But know my house doesn't look right without them. dee xx

magie said...

Such pretty Christmas baubles you have :) The silver, gold, turquoise and fushia sound like a lovely combination..I just love the colour turquoise! I am going for soft pastel colours this year :)
Have a great week

I love your color choices. Very pretty! I am loving baby blue, red, and a touch of pink this year. Happy Thanksgiving to you dear Koralee! May your day be blessed with much love.

Deb said...

Love this photo. Our tree will be traditional for us, mixed lights and mostly silver & white ornaments. Our outdoor lights will be white.

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

Love your sweet bird ornament. I am decorating with lots of retro shiny brites in all colors.

xo,

Martina said...

I'll go with red, fuchsia and apple green i think, although your version is very pretty and elegant too! xx

Pinecone said...

I am going with rustic I think. So whites, red, greens with some burlap. I planted my paperwhites, so they will be the showcase.

Love your colors!! xo Ashlyn

Irma said...

red, bleu and pastels :-))

The Garden Bell said...

Please, please a splash of bright fuchsia would be just the ticket. Are we going to get to see the full tree this year? Fingers crossed.

Bee happy said...

This year I'm sticking with silvers, whites and greys although I can't remember what's in my decs box as I have collected lots of colours over the years but this may change!

Bee happy x
Have a delicious day!

Hi Koralee,
I planned on getting up two trees, one for the children covered in red and bright pink and a white one with just a few touches of red ornaments.
It is still a bit to early, I am afraid, to get actually started.. a few more sleeps. We have the feast of Sinterklaas on December 5th, a children's feast. December 6h my trees are up! ;)
Much love for the new week, is it still snowing in BC? We have been covered with fog for days now and it will stay that way a little longer xo xo xo

A Vintage Chic said...

Such lovely colors, Koralee!

I'm afraid I'm a bit of a hodge-podge decorator for Christmas...for the main tree, I love all the traditional colors, just all plopped on the tree together...and LOTS of lights...just makes me happy!

In other rooms, I have beautiful, soothing vintage pink & aqua colors...those make me happy, too...I just can never pin myself down to ONE color scheme!

Wishing you a beautiful color-filled day, dear friend!

Holly Loves Art said...

Oh what fun! For the last several years I've always put up a pink "Barbie" tree. This year I will do the same but I also just bought a gorgeous pencil champagne colored tinsel tree that I will decorate with all my special ornaments collected through the years. I also have a lot of aqua and gold ornaments and also found lovely gift wrap in those colors. Can't wait to play! Looking forward to seeing your holiday posts!

Apple Blossom Barn said...

Hi Koralee I love your colour combo, I will be going vintage this year picked up some beautiful Gisela Graham baubles with roses on them and then found some silver glass nickelled ones too, but then the kids will add things on when I am not looking last year my lovely tree got covered on Ben10 stickers, will have to get a kiddies tree too this year.

I hope you have a lovely thanksgiving

Roselie said...

I saw a lilac tree a few hours ago and I can't stop thinking about it! Even if I won't dye mine I will use lilac to decorate it...

Farmgirl Gourmet said...

You make me want to decorate right now!! Lovely Koralee. :)

Gabriela Delworth said...

Alessandra said...

No tree for us here, we are going to Italy so I will not unpack my decorations, but maybe my Mum will let me help her with her tree???

Ciao
Alessandra

wendy said...

that sounds very pretty....I hope you'll give us some photos.
I won't even be putting up a tree this year as I will be going to Utah to be with my kids this Christmas.

GardenofDaisies said...

I think aqua, silver, gold and pink will look so pretty!
My must have color at Christmas is green.

Dagmar said...

Koralee...love your fresh colors..can't wait to see what you will post over the next few weeks...

Marilyn said...

Soon the ornaments will be out of the box and I will decide. I do know the living room will be a mixture of white, green tree, and maybe gold and silver - would love to have both. The dining room will be RED with a little green and yellow. May have to throw a little pink in somewhere, but not sure where yet, could be with the red, but probably with the white. Oh your box of goodies is teasing me. I am so looking forward to decorating next week.

Terri Gordon said...

Hello, My tree is aqua, silver, cream and gold. I love it and I look forward to putting it up each year. I have paisley silk material that I use as a tree skirt. You will love your tree. Thanks for sharing. Terri

scarlett clay said...

Adding the fuschia sounds perfect! I love your other colors, too. Every year I say I'm going to do some different colors in our Christmas mix...thanks for inspiring me!

Emily Lynne {The Best of this Life} said...

Love the colour palette! I think we are going with white and gold, with a bit of silver and blue....but in general our decorations will be white and gold....last year we had a lot of traditional reds and greens, so we're looking for something softer and ethereal. Can't wait to decorate!!

Celestial Charms said...

Such a lovely color combination. I'm leaning towards a red/white/brown mix. Have a great day!
Maureen

Blondie's Journal said...

This such a great color combination! So YOU! My ornaments are a myriad of colors...everything my children made when they were small to vintage ornaments from my parents. It makes for a very full tree! Perhaps I need two!

XO,
Jane

Palomasea said...

Dear Koralee,
These are sooo beautiful, heavenly!
I mostly have the German glass..love them, the little mushrooms, Santas, gingerbread men and houses. My biggest change lately has been putting a bit LESS on the tree:)), I tend to go a bit overboard!

A beautiful week to you,
xoxo,

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Very similar to yours, with no gold. I'm also going to add pops of deep purple and royal blue, but mostly silver, white and turquoise I think!

Trisha Brink Design said...

I am a vintage ornament collector, so... HOT pink, turquoise, light pink, sky blue, apple green, white, aqua, red, silver, and clear glass too! SO SO SO looking forward to it! I love your ornaments Koralee! I think adding the gold is VERY chic! You go girl! :)
