Blue and red are used as the primary colors for decorating our Hearth Room this season.
Because I am such a fan of blue, it is used throughout the house year-round. Adding additional touches of blues and reds make for easy decorating.
Adding double-faced Royal Blue satin ribbons to ginger jars, colorful nutcracker standing finials, plus glass finials on candlestick holders, plus garland, rice lights and the mantel is complete.
Favorite Christmas pillows from years ago were added to the navy blue and white pillows on both sides of the hearth.
Rice lights were used on the 7.5-foot Arapaho pine tree followed by 5 types of Christmas holiday bows and ribbons.
Ornaments included blue and white glass, and chinoiserie style (DIY). Lots of red berries and a few red poinsettias were added.
Lastly, a glass mouth-blown hand-painted Christmas Tree topper was wired to the top of the tree.
