For those of you who do not know our little Kinsley was born in July – so this is her first Christmas and I would be lying if I were not over-the-moon excited! We did not find out if we were having a girl or a boy so as soon as she was born all I could think about was decorating her room for Christmas! We will just call it Christmas in July 🙂 And yes I know…some people might think I am crazy. BUT for those that know me and my love for Christmas this would come to no surprise!
My mom growing up made Christmas a MAGICAL time! Each of us kids all had our own trees in our room. I will be sharing the story behind that later so stay tune! But Santa would sneak a few presents under our own trees. We were allowed to open those before waking our parents – now as a grown-up and mother myself I can safely say Santa is a VERY smart guy! He knew how much my mom liked her sleep 🙂 So Kinsley having her own tree this Christmas was no question!
I chose to go with a classic, vintage look for Kinsley’s room. All of the bottlebrush trees that have made a comeback reminded me of my Grandma’s growing up. I could not wait to get my hands on them for her room! I also added the vintage-look wreathes and cute sparkly reindeers.
I opted for pale pinks and pastel blues to compliment her neutral and pink nursery. I didn’t want anything overtaking her décor – just a little Christmas twinkle addition!
One little fun fact is her pink beaded garland on her tree is actually from my room as a child. It is so special to me that I have saved it over the years…hoping that one day my daughter could use it!
Her tree – which hello procrastinator 🙂 was a pain in the booty to find! They all were sold out in stores. I finally opted for a smaller version of what I really wanted but put it on top of a neutral hamper with white skirt to give it some height. One other trick I did was tie on the ornaments with pink and cream ribbon. This little trick adds some more detail to a tree if you do not have a ton of ornaments and helps create the illusion of a more full tree.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Kinsley’s nursery. Do you decorate your child’s room for Christmas? Let me know in the comments below I would love to hear about it!
