Creating a pink-themed Christmas is fun and offers a wide variety of decoration choices. You can go with a hot pink color theme or opt for a soft pale pink. Add pop to an antique white and gold Christmas décor scheme with elegant pink decorations. Whatever way you go - whether decorating in all-out pink or just adding touches throughout your home - you're sure to find pink a perfect fit for the holidays.
Pink Christmas Trees
The most obvious way to decorate your Christmas tree in pink is to purchase one and then decorate it using darker and lighter pink ornaments. You can also choose an accent color or two, such as gold and silver ornaments or a soft white to give your tree decorating greater design depth.
Another way to have a pink Christmas tree is to purchase pink lights, ornaments, ribbons, garland and even tinsel to use on a typical green Christmas tree. This way, if you decide a few Christmases from now that you want to go with a different color, you simply change it all out.
