Using blues, greens, and hydrangeas for Christmas


Blue and green with hydrangeas for Christmas decor isn't something I've done before this year. But it's been a different kind of year since losing my dad in the spring, and it called for a bit of change at our house. 

Today I'm sharing our Christmas tree and antique oak hutch that I've decorated with blue and green, and the tree has dried and artificial hydrangeas on it. It's part of this year's Celebrate Christmas tour hosted by my friend Leen at Sand Dollar Lane. There are 15 home bloggers sharing ideas and you can visit everyone by clicking the links at the bottom of this post. 

If you're coming over from Sand Dollar Lane, welcome!  I always love seeing what Leen has done with her decor, especially at Christmas. Hop over and visit her here if you haven't already: Sand Dollar Lane

Here's a peek at what you'll see on this beautiful tour full of ideas for your Christmas home:



Now I'll give you a little tour of a couple of areas of our house that I've decorated with blues and greens and hydrangeas. 

Antique Oak Hutch with Jadeite and blue and white 


One of my favorite places to decorate is our antique oak hutch. The vintage white ironstone pitchers and platters have been found at yard sales, estate sales, thrift shops, and at least a couple have been given to me. They go with every color and are fun to use as a sort of base for whatever I decide to put with them.

The antique jadeite pieces are some that my amazing sister gave me earlier this year. She and her husband downsized and she decided that she no longer wanted these and gifted them to me. I'm the luckiest sister in the world!

A few blue glass Christmas ornaments in the jadeite batter bowl, tiny blue and white teapots, and a simple blue and white gingham ribbon tied around a boxwood topiary add just enough blue to the scene.

I mimicked the shape of a tree with the set of jadeite bowls and added a few blue ornaments and holly clippings.

And a few small vintage mercury glass blue ornaments were scattered here as well. The vintage silver spoons and the ironstone creamer and sugar are in the hutch pretty much all the time and go with everything. The small led birch houses are from my online shop, Emory Valley Mercantile

Christmas tree with blues, greens, and hydrangeas


I've really grown to love blue and white over the past couple of years and got some new furniture in here earlier this year. You can read about that here: New Blue and White Living Room Furniture.  I was definitely influenced by the furniture when I was planning our Christmas decor. 

To create this look, I dug through my stash of vintage ornaments, ribbons, and garland. The only thing I bought specifically for Christmas this year is the Christmas tree pillow and some new gift wrapping paper.

Hydrangeas are one of my absolute favorite things to decorate with any time of the year. I used some dried and faux white hydrangeas on the tree and adore how they look. They're so full and fluffy. You can see how I dry them here: How to Easily Dry Hydrangeas. After I dried them, I left them outside during a few hot summer days and they turned into this antique tea stained color.

I also added some faux baby eucalyptus branches, dried orange slices, button garland, and vintage ornaments in shades of blue, green, and turquoise. And I clipped a few branches from our magnolia tree for a bit more greenery. 

If you're interested in similar colored ornaments, I've curated a collection of vintage ones here: Vintage blue, green, and turquoise ornaments.

I have always loved wrapping presents. Is that weird? When I was growing up my mom always had me wrap the presents and it was so much fun. This year I bought some pretty Christmas wrapping paper with blue, green, gold, and terra cotta. It coordinates perfectly with our area rug

And I brought our faux fur throw blanket from the family room to add a bit of cozy texture to the room. It's Lucy's favorite place to take a nap. She's completely spoiled.

On the wall next to the tree is our vintage china cabinet with my 1991 china and crystal. A few magnolia branches are tucked inside a basket on top of it. And a boxwood wreath and a couple of throw blankets adorn my vintage wooden ladder.

I'm pretty happy with these new-to-me Christmas tree colors. They're fresh, happy, and clean looking and that's exactly what I needed this year.
