Red and Blue Christmas Tree in the Dining Room:
For the first time ever, I decided to decorate a Christmas tree in my dining room!
Since my dining room walls are navy (Sherwin Williams – Naval), I carried the navy blue over to the Christmas tree.
When I shared my Christmas table setting the other day, I only gave a glimpse of my partially decorated Christmas tree in the corner. Well, now the tree is fully decorated and ready to be featured!
As you can see, I decorated my tablescape with navy blue, plaid and splashes of red. For the Christmas tree, I did the same.
Since I had some leftover plaid ribbon, I added that to the tree and then decorated with red and navy blue ornaments.
Red Bows on the Table and Christmas Tree:
On each place setting, I tied a red bow around some fresh greenery…
So, it only made sense to feature some red bows on the red and blue Christmas tree!
And what better place for a red bow than on top of the Christmas tree! Not only do I love the simplicity of a simple red velvet bow but I absolutely love the way the red pops against the navy blue walls!
Funny story on the red bow…
When I started decorating the Christmas tree, I only had the navy plaid ribbon (from Ballard Designs). At that point, I didn’t have a plan for the Christmas tree topper but thought a bow might be nice. So, I made a bow from the navy plaid but it didn’t stand out enough against the navy walls. Like most of us, I want to limit my trips to the store these days so I tried to make due with what I had. As I rummaged through my stash in the basement, I thought to myself, “If I only had some red velvet ribbon”. Well, I kid you not, I lifted up a stack of tablecloths and there was a roll of red velvet ribbon!!!
After adding the red velvet ribbon to the top of the tree, I sprinkled red ornaments and small red ribbons throughout the tree. This gave a nice balance of red and blue color to the Christmas tree.
As you can see, my collection of blue and white china mixes in perfectly with my red and blue Christmas tree decorations.
And the addition of the Christmas tree has given a whole new look to my dining room!
Though, I’m not the only one who appreciates the Christmas tree…
I think Rosie has been enjoying it as well!
Thanks for stopping by to see my red and blue dining room Christmas tree. Hopefully, I’ve inspired you to use your room colors as inspiration for your tree!
