I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas

As I mentioned in the Christmas meme yesterday, my Christmas decorations last year were pretty sensible and restrained - it was woodland themed so there were lots of berries, owls and deer - all very twee and traditional.

But not this year, no way - I'm going with bright colours and over-the-top decorations galore!

Christmas Day this year will be spent with the wonderful Kaz, but as she has never hosted Christmas before she doesn't own any decorations! Not even a tree! Can you believe it???

I bought her a pink Christmas tree to make up for it, and now she has decided to go with a pink/purple/silver theme for the rest of her decorations. Working 14 hour days or whatever the crazy girl works, I offered to do her Christmas decoration shopping for her. I asked her what kinds of decorations she wanted on a scale of 1 - 10, with 1 being tack-o-rama and 10 being uber tasteful. She chose 6. The foolish girl doesn't seem to know how much I love tacky-things-shopping, and how uncontrollable I get when it comes to hideous decorations!

However, considering the specific brief and the small budget I was given, I think I did incredibly well - I went for mostly semi-tack with a bit of uber-tack and some semi-tasteful stuff - so it should all even out pretty well. That's how averaging works, right?

Let's just hope she doesn't expect any of this lovely stuff, 'cause she'll be in for a surprise if she does....

What colour scheme are you going with this Christmas?

"Scheme"? What's one of them?

I'm keeping a traditional color but the pictures of the pink Christmas make me smile.

I'm not overdoing the pink either - I'm leaving that to Kaz!

Kaz said...

Thank you - I love it all - and it's tasteful pink :)
