I’m a pretty traditional gal when it comes to Christmas decor. But this year, I abandoned all things red, green and gold. My tree is daring, in vogue and pays homage to my all-time favorite color. A purple Christmas tree complete with pink bows, silver balls and cupcake ornaments is the unexpected and fun focal point of my living room. Whether you lean evergreen or artificial, old fashioned or modish, here are some of my favorite trimmings sure to inspire so you can get your tree Santa-ready, too.
Oh, and just in case you’re struggling to find that perfect gift for your world-traveling brother or dog-loving best friend, HGTV’s Holiday Gift Guide is brimming with presents for everyone on your list. (I’ll take the Fu Dog bookends, please.)
