How to Decorate A Christmas Tree with Mixed Metals

| |

Home decor at this time of year is all about twinkle lights, glitter, and sparkles and there is no better way to express your Christmas decorating style than with your tree decor. This year I decided to create a Christmas tree with mixed metals, using all of my favorites, rose gold, platinum, and silver, on a flocked tree. The result is an incandescent beauty that is neutral as well as brilliant.

And as an added bonus, I am joined by 13 uber-talented friends who are sharing their unique Christmas tree ideas and designs. Be sure to scroll down to the end of the post to see everything!

The inspiration for this tree came when I opened my holiday decorating boxes and couldn’t decide on a color theme for this year. I was torn between all of the beautiful metallics, so I decided to try creating a Christmas tree with mixed metals to see how it looked, and guess what!? It looks amazing!!

I also did something else a bit unusual this year. Rather than use a single flocked tree in my living room, I decided to add two additional smaller flocked trees to create a little “tree forest” in the corner. I LOVE how this looks, and in fact, considered not decorating any of these trees because they looked so pretty as a little trio (or is it “tree-o”😂).

Once I got started with the mixed metal theme on the 9′ tree, I knew it would not take away from the look of the trio but rather make it even more beautiful.

I started with a 2.5″ wide wired linen ribbon that had a darker glittered center stripe. I also added some blush pink satin ribbon throughout to bring in a bit mere of the rose gold color I love so much on a Christmas tree.

Once I had the ribbon in place, I began adding the ornaments. There were virtually the same ornaments I had used two years earlier on a green Christmas tree and I was amazed at how different they looked on a flocked tree. The biggest change was that I added some platinum, champagne and silver ornaments to the blush and rose gold.

I finished the look with a thin green leaf garland, for a little pop of color and some sprigs of champagne, glittered pine branches.

I love the look of mixed metals on this Christmas tree and the soft glow they add to the room.

In addition to putting mixed metal ornaments on the tree, I also filled one of my favorite dough bowls with fresh pine greenery and extra platinum ornaments.

I also love the look of rose gold and silver ornaments spilling out of a vintage suitcase on the table next to the trees. I added to copper lanterns to this table as well as a lush pine garland over the vintage mirror.

I finished the look with a small faux pine tree and a trio of bottle brush trees.

Sweet Winston stayed with me the entire time, enjoying the Christmas music and the glow of the trees. I’m was so happy with the look of this Christmas tree with mixed metals, I decided to try a similar look on our tree in the family room. Stay tuned for that look coming next week!

Now get ready to see some incredibly inspiring themed Christmas trees for every style and look.

  1. Beautiful! I love your style. Having 3 trees is a great idea and the glow of the metals is gorgeous! You’ve inspired me to add to my traditional gold and cream tree.

  2. I love your “tree-o.” I’m all for more is more although I know it has not been in favor for some time. I do think you have to be thoughtful when you do it, but you have carried it off.
