There is not enough ooooohhs and ahhhhhhs text variations to thoroughly describe the gushing I’m doing over this magnificent tree. The colors, the lights, the backdrop, the florals, the FLOURISHES! I love all of it. I knew a burgundy red paired with champagne were going to be the primary colors, but adding in the dark navy blue and that bright, almost apple green make this decadently layered tree sing. And can we just take a moment to appreciate the literal wall applique flourishes with the gold finish?
Having the gold finished flourish appliques and the literal swirls of ribbon from the topper down to the tendrils nestled in the floral, it’s a visually stunning tree to get to sit back and enjoy. This tree has everything from fantasy flowers to the classic poinsettias, glamorous magnolias, and even exotic orchids in it. It is truly a tree filled with florals and flourishes, perfect for a botanical lover like myself.
My wonderful friends over at Shop Wild Things sent me so many amazing products to use for this design, including this fantastic pipe and drape kit paired with their LED light curtain, which beautifully framed this tree, making it look even more magnificent.
The burgundy and green amaranths that helped to create the cascading, draped look are also from Shop Wild Things . You may recognize them from my dinner party at the Featherington’s tablescape from the spring. You can see how the amaranth generates a natural transition from the tree topper portion of the Christmas tree, to the body of the tree where the majority of the decorating happens.
When you think about a rich burgundy, a deep blue, and evergreen, the combination is gorgeous but can lean a little towards a darker color story. Having pops of brighter colors help provide some much needed contrast, and some beautiful accents. To help keep this tree looking multi-dimensional, I was lucky enough to use these vibrant green orchids with magenta spotting on them that my dear friends over at Shop Wild Things sent me to design with. Look how exquisite contrast is between the jeweled magnolias paired next to the green orchids.
The combination of the deep burgundy florals, combined with a lighter burgundy backdrop have more opportunity to pop with the green orchid. The orchid is providing the perfect amount of brightness to this look. Plus, with the theme being Florals and Flourishes, the more florals- the better!
Take a look at how I put this breathtaking Christmas tree together: (I also have a super detailed shopping list in the description!)
This tree has everything from poinsettias, orchids, magnolias, amaranth, delphiniums, berries, and so many fantasy florals, sprays and branches, it’s like a magical garden all on one tree. The swirled ribbon layered in, with just a few strategically placed gold appliques wired into the tree really makes this Christmas tree concept come to life and look all that more luxurious and elegant.
I’m glad I didn’t do any more traditional ribbon runs or loops down the tree, as I think that would have broken up the organic nature of this tree. There are just a handful of ornaments dotting the branches of this botanical masterpiece. I love the limited use of ornaments on this tree, it’s a refreshing take on what a decorated Christmas tree needs to look like. Plus, the floral picks can be used again and again throughout the year, so double score!
