Today, I’m sharing my pink and navy Christmas tree! See all of the details and find out how I put this tree together in under 30 minutes, just using decor I had on hand!
Hi friends! So, I had fully intended on doing a full-on, whole house Christmas tour but life got in the way of that. It turns out that having your entire family home for school + work and having a brand new puppy who doesn’t let you sleep kind of gets in the way of doing anything productive. Who would’ve guessed it, right? LOL.
Pink and Navy Christmas Tree
So like everything else in 2020, I’m pivoting and sharing just my pink and navy Christmas tree with you today! I had so much fun putting this together and it might be my favorite tree to date! My goal was to just use up things I already had in the house and with the exception of a roll of navy blue ribbon, a few super sale rolls of light blue ribbon (seriously, buy 3, get 1 free!) + a couple of ornaments I picked up from Target (intended for a different tree), I was able to mostly stick to it!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have seen that I recently gave my foyer a little refresh with some new wallpaper, a new mirror and a new paint job on our existing dresser. So, I felt like I needed to incorporate some blue into the tree this year to make it all flow together. I also decided to do a time-lapse video of me putting this pink and navy Christmas tree together, so if you want to see me completely not dressed up (seriously, who wears all black with A FLOCKED TREE? Oh wait, me, I guess!) and assembling my pink and navy Christmas tree, you can check it out.

How I Assembled My Pink and Navy Christmas Tree
I always, always start with my ribbon first. Usually, I tend to cascade the ribbon down the tree for a “poofier” look. However, this time, I cut and tucked smaller strips. Then I attached the bow topper and added in the flowers and picks next. Then I worked my way down from the largest ornaments to the smallest.
Coordinating Pink and Navy Decorations
I’ve had this little gold table forever. Several years ago, I spray painted it gold and use it just for coordinating decorations for this pink and navy Christmas tree. I picked up these pink sequined trees a few years ago at Christmas Tree Shoppes. Then I added in a navy blue bulb and one of my cute Sugar Paper LA x Target boxes. I’ve also collected a bunch of their other boxes in various shapes and sizes over the years and then tie up coordinating ribbon on them.
On a funny side note – when I first bought these boxes, I picked up just a few of them. My daughter was around 7 at the time. She asked if she could use one to wrap a present for my husband and me. I said yes and on Christmas morning, she proudly presented it to us – complete with “To Mom, Dad and Noah” written in pen in LARGE letters on the top of the box. I was trying so hard not to laugh. Here was my fancy box and she decided to literally write on it! Now it makes me smile every year when I pull it out.
I hope you enjoyed my tour of my pink and navy Christmas tree! I had so much fun putting it together. If you give it a try, send me a pic! I’d love to see it!
