Oy Christmas Tree!



Tickled Pink and Green (who of course loves all things pink) posted a photo of a pink Christmas tree on her blog. The one she found was from Wal-Mart. After some deliberation we (her blogging buddies) decided that a little pink tree might be cute in the corner of a little girl's room. Well my mom jumped right on it. She purchased two little pink trees in Florida and shipped them up to Jersey. My daughters were delighted. My husband, HORRIFIED. He's a pretty traditional guy from Vermont and a fake pink tree is enough to send him over the edge.


Luckily he managed to hide his disgust from my daughters. I set the trees up in their rooms and they decorated them with jewelry, Littlest Pet Shop figures, My Little Ponies and Barbies.

These trees will never make the pages of Town and Country, but they are adorable. When my husband saw what they did it melted his heart. Even he appreciated the joy these little pink trees brought to his girls.

Today I noticed the latest issue of Blueprint Magazine. What is on the cover? You guessed it-a pink Christmas tree! Not the Wal-Mart one, but a good looking tree nonetheless.

You know what they say...

"Tacky is the new tasteful!"

We're such trendsetters!!!

"Good taste--What a dreadful thing!
Taste is the enemy of creativeness."

-Pablo Picasso

At least it is in their rooms! I know they were thrilled with their own trees. My boys also have small tacky kid decorated trees-just not pink!

I saw that pink tree on Blueprint too and I have to say, I bloody LOVE it! My husband would kill me if I put that up in the living room (instead we have a navy decorated one), so I settled for a little pink decorated one for the kitchen.
