A Rainbow Christmas
Have you ever had an idea you just can’t let go of?
An idea that just keeps bothering you, until you bring it to life.
Well, that was me. About two years ago, I had this idea of a rainbow-themed Christmas tree. For whatever reason, though, the opportunity to bring said idea to reality just didn’t really present itself. Nevertheless, that idea continued to percolate in my head.
Then, last year, my team and I were discussing out-of-the-box Christmas tree ideas. One idea that came up was a floral Christmas tree — a tree decked out in faux florals, somewhat like this lovely DIY floral tree by Design Love Fest, but with our own unique colorful twist. We loved the idea, but it seemed like a bit too much to tackle last year.
This year, however, was going to be different. This year was going to be the year that I finally created the rainbow tree of my dreams – and somehow wove this floral concept into it.
But then, this fall, I stumbled upon this House Beautiful article declaring the biggest Christmas trend this year to be rainbow Christmas trees. Well, crap, I said to myself. Now I don’t look original. I just look basic. Ugh. And you all know we don’t like to be basic around here! Haha. Note to self: act on ideas when you have them in order to stay ahead of the curve! Lesson learned.
Nevertheless, I persisted with this notion, as I knew I wanted to put our unique spin on it. By unique, I mean extra AF. You know we don’t do things half way around here! And by unique, I wanted to make it rainbow, but sophisticated. Rainbows can sometimes be viewed as juvenile. But I didn’t want to go the kids route. I truly love the meaning and symbolism behind rainbows, and I pretty much think they are appropriate at any age.
So, I set out to create a sophisticated rainbow Christmas! Keep reading for all the ways we made this happen, and how you, too, can create the most rainbow filled Christmas of your dreams in just a few simple steps. Merry merry!
