This year I have fallen in love with navy and white Christmas trees. For this year’s Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop I created one of my own.

This year, I debated on making a 70th Anniversary Snoopy Themed Tree for this blog hop but finally decided to feature a navy and white nostalgic one instead.
My Snoopy themed tree still happened in my house this year featuring all of the stuffed Snoopy toys and ornaments I have been collecting since I was around 5 years old. I will share the link to that tree in another post.
Navy and White Nostalgic Christmas Tree
For my navy and white tree for this year’s Christmas Tree Decor Blog Hop, I started out by using my 7 foot green tree. But the half of the lights had blown. I wanted all white lights so I started the tedious task of cutting off the old multicolored lights.
I will not do that again!
It was just not worth the extra effort and the bleeding fingers. Just saying.
However, I do love the look of this tree with all white lights now.
My tree this year had to be off the floor and on a table.
I have a very large and very active one year old German Shepherd puppy and he thinks all things are his play toys. So I had to put my featured tree on a table in the corner of the room to keep it safe. You will notice this in the pictures.
The navy ornaments on this tree are round bulbs (shatterproof of course) in various sizes. I purchased a large container of them at the At Home store all in navy, some shiny or with glitter.
The all white ornaments and the white poinsettia flowers all were great finds at the Dollar Tree. They have really upped their options this year for Christmas and the items are actually really nice. The price is even better if you are working on a themed tree.
Silver ribbon woven throughout the tree completed the look I was trying to achieve.
Then, I didn’t like it. Yes it was the look I was going for but it just “needed” something more.
Since I was putting all of my Christmas decorations up around the house I had things pulled out that I wasn’t planning on using. Included in these items was a bag of vintage Christmas post cards covered with vintage German glass glitter that were tossed out from my previous employer where I worked as an Interior Designer at a luxury resort here in the Smoky Mountains.
This was about 10 years or more ago.
I had never used them before but just held on to them instead of letting them go in the dumpster. They were purchased from a former company called Barbara Shriver (can’t find them online anymore) and are replicas of these wonderful nostalgic post cards from the early 1900’s.
On impulse I added them to the all navy and white tree and it was just what it needed.
This is how my navy and white nostalgic tree came to be. I really like how it turned out.
