All Decked Out In Pink & Green

It's a wonderful life, isn't it? Today's Pink Saturday request was to mention your favorite holiday movie... and I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves this movie. We watch it every year when we decorate...but more on that later. Today I'm showing a simple way to use ornaments and ribbons.

Being the antiquey girl that I am, vintage ornaments are first choice in decorating for Christmas. This year since Bebe is two years old I've decided against using my oldies but goodies. Why chance it?

So I've had to put these away until next year.




I decided to get out my Martha Stewart ribbons, purchased at 75% off last year after the holidays were over...


Love these! I chose the light green...


Tying the ribbons through the ornaments with a pretty bow, leaving plenty of length on the ribbon....I am using glass ornaments but they are newer and will be hung

way out of Bebe's reach. She has been really good so far with the tree all decorated.




I would love to mix the old with the new but I decided to stick to one theme....



Taaa Daaa! They are now hung in front of our tall glass windows... I love how they turned out.




Hope you are enjoying the season... stop on over to How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday and see what everyone else has chosen for their favorite Christmas movie.




Next post I'll show the rest of my decorating...
