Red, Black & White Mini Tree

We are still decorating here at moms house! While going through items in the basement I came across the top of an old Christmas tree so I suggested we put it in a vase and put it on the desk in moms bedroom, she liked the idea so off we went to find items that would work in her Black & White Toile Bedroom.

I wanted to add some color to the tree so I once again started searching the basement and found some white enamel spray paint and thought well, why not give it a try and see what happens! It turned out perfect! I didn't want an all white look and with it being enamel it just gave the tree a nice glazed look.

I am joining Marty @  for Tabletop Tuesday!

We put white glittered picks, a white snowflake garland, glass pendants and mini black and silver bulbs (from Hobby Lobby) on the tree.

A silver metal basket is holding 2 presents, a mini silver stocking, a small decorative mannequin and a night light.

We placed the vase on a really pretty white doilie trimmed in black and silver which is laying on a black and white plate and underneath is a silver beaded charger. 

We put red lights on the tree because there is little pops of red throughout the room as an accent color.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun decorating! 



  1. Love the colors--black and red. Very retro!

  2. I adore the tree in the vase. The pop of red is so rich looking. Looking forward to seeing more.
