Inspired by the two alternative trees I included in last week’s Sunday’s Bright Links post, I went on the hunt for a third and final idea to bring festive cheer into your space at the last minute. The result? This colourful bauble tree that is ideal for a Bright.Bazaar home, especially if you’re short on space and budget. What I like most about this idea is that you can create something permanent to bring out year on year, almost as though it would become a well-loved piece within your holiday decorating arsenal. To mix up the look you could try ‘framing’ the bauble tree by tracing the edge of the tree shape with washi tape or even a string of fairy lights. I love the striking effect of simply grouping together the palette of pink, blue, gold and red vintage baubles looks; I’d love to try other shapes, too, like candy canes, bells and holly. What last minute festive touches are you bringing into your home, friends?
