FLOCKED CHRISTMAS TREE WITH NAVY, LIGHT BLUE, SILVER AND GOLD ORNAMENTS
How is your decorating coming along? Do you have your tree finished yet? How about your mantel, if you’re decorating one? Your porch and entryway? I finally finished our tree two days ago and have to say I’m exhausted…but I am loving this year’s flocked Christmas tree decor.
I’ve been decorating our home now for about three weeks, maybe even a month and I can finally say I’m finished tweaking and primping, fluffing and twisting, tying ribbon and moving things around the house about 5000 times.
Not to mention the six thousand trips to all of our local shops buying, returning, buying again, returning again, you know what I mean. Ah, the joys of holiday decorating, right? I do love it!
No complaints over here, and although I’m still not ready to share my full home tour I wanted to share our flocked Christmas tree decor. You’ll see a few peeks of the living room, but the rest is coming soon!

FLOCKED CHRISTMAS TREE DECOR
This year, I decorated only one tree – I don’t even know how my blogging friends with multiple trees, pull it all off each year. My hat goes off to them!That being said, no matter how much work it is, getting it all done so early, allows us to enjoy our home all decked out for the season – everyone is in the Christmas spirit and I’m thrilled that my hubby and kids love our decor this year.
If you haven’t had a chance to see my inspiration post outlining my theme, you can read all about it right here.
Navy, gold, silver, with touches of tartan, stripes and light blue are what you’ll find throughout our main living area this season, and being the blue and white lover that I am, I think this is my favorite Christmas theme to date.
I always use metallics and I usually have touches of blue or green, but this year I went full force and am loving it. If you missed my two previous Christmas posts – Christmas Decorating Tips and A Classic Christmas Tablescape, you can catch them both here and here.
You’ll see how I’ve used my color palette and I know you’ll find some great inspiration too ;)The gift wrap theme I chose this year is modern, clean and simple – I wanted something crisp and refreshing, I used blue and white, with a focus on white wrapping paper, and navy, striped and tartan ribbon to compliment our decor.
Last year, my theme was icy blue gift wrap that compliment mostly neutral metallics throughout our home. You can catch that home tour here.
This is the second year I’m using a ‘faux’ flocked Christmas tree and I am as happy this year as I was last.
Being a blogger and having to put a tree up so early, a real one would never make it all the way to Christmas.
There was a time you couldn’t pay me to use a faux tree but now it’s my lifesaver.
There are so many beautiful choices out there too. Definitely not the fake trees of Christmas past!I love the snowy branches and how bright and happy this tree feels in our home.The blues are just beautiful against the white, and the gold and silver almost glisten.You may recognize the large navy and gold ornaments – they’ re the same ones I used in my dining room, tied to the backs of our chairs (see it here).
I also used them to decorate the mantel. You’ll see more of that soon, I promise.
This year, I was very fortunate to be contacted by a truly fabulous artist, Kristen Tirney (see her work here), who sent me these gorgeous hand painted brushstroke ornaments in three color variations – gold on navy, gold on white and navy on white.
They are so beautiful and I love the modern mix they bring to my more traditional decorations.
They’re so pretty mixed in with my classics too, don’t you think?
I love how they compliment my theme and my gift wrap too. I love to see those navy brush stokes pick up the striped ribbon and gift wrap.You’ve seen a few peeks of my new pillows in my inspiration post, and you’ll see more of them in my home tour, but here’s another peek and I have to say they are SO gorgeous!
I love the wintery vibe they bring to our home. You can shop them below, just click the links to see them.

Thank you so much, my friend! I am so happy that you like everything – and yes, the early decorating can be a very good thing! Thank you for the lovely compliment, you are always such a sweetheart! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season too! xox
It looks so beautiful!! The tree is spectacular. Blue and white is my absolute favourite. I was going to do a similar colour them this year but I had such a hard time finding blue decorations! So I went with pink and gold…..should have stuck with blue…i am not finding pink either. LOL Heading to ribbon and box store this morning in the hopes that I will find SOMETHING that i can use.
Tam you saved the best for last! Stunning! I’m in love with your color mix and those beautiful hand painted ornaments. You nailed it again! 🙌🏻💙💙💙💙

Darlene thank you so much!! It’s my favorite color too! I’m thrilled you like it! Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas!! xo

I’m in LOVE! I always need a cup of coffee in my hand when I stop here. I take my time to read you and I enjoy every detail. Tamara, you did it again! It’s the MOST WONDERFUL tree I’ve seen around the blogosphere. So refreshing! Every ornament it’s in a great harmony. BRAVO!
With a tree that stunning you don’t need multiple trees! Great job Tamara! Love the blue and green accents 💙💙💙!
Can you give us some tips on how to make the tree so pretty (it looks stunning, by the way). Start with _____, then _____, then add ____ . Do you buy a ton at after-Christmas sales?
Artificial trees have come such a long way.
I never would have changed my ideas of a real tree until I’ve seen how stunning these are and how fabulous they look in your home…fabulous job xoxo
Tam your tree is absolutely STUNNING! Wow. Just WOW! I absolutely love how colorful and bright and happy it is! You might be convincing me I need more blue in my life next holiday season. :) Such a fun post cutie! xo
Summer you are so sweet my friend! No matter how busy you are, you always take the time to hop over here and I am so grateful! Thank you so much for the sweet words, it always means so much to me! Now I need a date with your blog! Merry Christmas to you too!! xox
Anastasia, that is the nicest compliment, I can’t tell you! It truly means so much that you love to come here, I’m very grateful! Thank you SO much for the kind words, I’m thrilled you like everything!! Merry Christmas!!
Jen, coming from you I am so truly humbled! You have such a gorgeous home and your trees are always the most beautiful!! I’m so thrilled you like it all, Jen, thank you for visiting! xox
Michelle, that is a great idea, I will try to remember that, and if I have time I will do a quick post on that idea! I always like to start with the largest ornaments, and go from there. I try my best to make sure that everything is even distributed and create almost a diamond pattern with each type of ornament if I can. Then I fill in the large ‘holes’ with my tree picks, also creating a diamond/zigzag pattern – nothing in rows! Last, I fill all the rest of the empty spots with my ribbons, and keep going until it’s full! I hope that helps!! And I rarely get to the sales, which is a bad thing, because I LOVE to collect ornaments! Thanks for stopping today! xo
Trace, this tree has changed my life!! I miss the real tree, no question, but I don’t miss the giant mess and having a dead tree by the time it’s all over. Love that you love it!! Muah!! xoxo
Erin!! Thank you SO MUCH! I am so grateful that you took the time to stop in! You are the sweetest, and I am so thrilled that you like it! Blue would be amazing in your home, I can totally see it in your living room! Love you my friend! Big hugs!! xox

Tam, this is so beautiful. I love all the colors, it is stunning in your home. Beautiful job! XO, Amy

Amy thank you my friend! I appreciate that so much!! xox
Thanks Terry! I’m so happy you like it all!! It took me forever but I’m finally happy with it! Muah! xoxo
So glad I found your blog via Instagram! I love the navy, gold and green theme. Could you please share the brand or where you bought the oversized mercury glass navy and gold ornaments that are on the backs of the chairs and on your tree. Thank you!!!
Your tree is stunning and has been such an inspiration to me this year decorating my tree. What color ribbon did you use?
Thank you so much Jill! I am so happy you like it! I have silver, gold and light blue!! xo
I’m just finding this navy and gold tree in Dec 2019, and How FANASTIC is it!!?! Really, quite stunning!! I do not have the artistic style (nor do I know how to find someone here in my Austin TX area as a service) as you do so I wish someone would sell one even somewhat along the same lines. Just wanted to pass along a “Great job!!” for the Holidays.
You are so kind, thank you so much!! If I lived near you, I would love to help you!! I’m thrilled you like it, thank you!! Merry Christmas! xo
