Who says you have to decorate with traditional colors at Christmas? After years of using the same colors year after year, I thought it would be fun to try some different ones. So, I started rummaging through my Christmas accessories, and decided on a new color scheme. Today, I’ll show you my simple pink and green Christmas table setting!

Simple Pink and Green Christmas Table:
As I mentioned in my previous post, ‘Not Enough Pink in My World‘, I could use some more pink in my house…
It all started when I found these lime green hounds tooth place mats on sale at Pier One…
Yes, they look a little sage-y in this picture but they are actually more lime green…
Anyway, I was going to save them for spring and use them on the deck. But then I thought, wait a minute, these would look great with a hot pink scarf from my closet. Since I love pink and green together, this color combo was a no brainer for me. After all, if I added some sparkly ornaments, I could actually make pink work for Christmas…
Since the downstairs rooms in my house are warmer colors, I had a hard time figuring out where to “stage” my little card table.
I like the look of the white french doors in the background so I placed the table in the game room leading into the living room. The walls are green (not lime) but it seemed like a good place. Anyway, it was also sunny that morning so I was able to get some natural light. Just ignore the fact that I have no chairs set up at my little prop of a table!
Too bad my plates are not as white as the napkins, but hey, you work with what you have!
Just a few glass ornaments and some sparkle tie the colors together…
So, what do you think? Is the pink and green table Christmasy enough?
