Purple And Gold Christmas Tree Decor Ideas

Purple and gold Christmas decor ideas

Two weeks ago, I kicked off my Christmas decorating by showing off the blush pink, black and white Christmas tree that I put up in my office.

And I warned you that I did A LOT of Christmas decorating this year (7 trees to be exact!).

Last week, I shared my very traditional red, white and gold Christmas color scheme that I did in the living room and dining room.

Then there is this year’s blue Christmas tree. Because I love blue so much, I always like to have some blue Christmas decorations somewhere in the house. This year it’s in my den.

Finally, there’s this week’s Christmas tour. I’m going back to non-traditional Christmas colors — purple and gold on a black Christmas tree.

If you were around when I did my bedroom makeover back in the spring, you’ll remember that I ended up painting it purple.

And I installed a faux fireplace so I could finally decorate a mantle that doesn’t have a TV over it.

That’s how I ended up with a gold and purple Christmas theme.

I’m using my no-fail method for putting up Christmas decorations that look beautiful…match them to the colors in the room.

I think these are my favorite Christmas decorations this year. I may not come out of the bedroom for the rest of the year 🙂

Purple and Gold Christmas Tree

Purple and gold Christmas tree

First up is my purple and gold Christmas tree.

All of those ornaments are on my black Christmas tree. Which I know is definitely not a traditional Christmas tree color.

But I think it really makes the purple and gold Christmas decorations stand out.

Part of my inspiration for this tree is these beautiful purple Christmas ornaments.

I bought them on clearance after Christmas last year because I loved them. At that point, I didn’t even know I was going to be painting my bedroom purple, so they just happened to work out 🙂

I think if my design style was a Christmas ornament, this would be it. A beautiful color with some glammed up natural elements and a little bit of sparkle.

With lots of gold ornaments, some white ornaments and a few grey-blue ornaments along with the purple ones, I love the color combination.

Even with the lights off, the tree looks pretty.

Mantle Decor

For the mantel, I decided to go with relatively simple decorations.

I started with a fresh evergreen garland. I like the way it drapes over the edges of the mantel.

Then I added a few gold and purple ornaments with an ivy leaf garland.

A few tall white candles finish off the Christmas decorations on top of the mantel.

I love the way it looks with the candles lit and the lights on.

To add some interest under the mantel, I hung some DIY pine cone Christmas ornaments.

My original plan was to drape some more evergreens over the top of the mirror, but it was a little too close to the candles. So I decided against it.

My antique cocktail shaker and liqueur glasses fit right in.

Mini Wreaths

These small gold wreaths* are a really easy way to add Christmas decor anywhere that needs a little festive touch.

I hung them from the shelves with some white and gold ribbon. Then I added a purple ornament by hanging it from the back of the ribbon with an ornament hook.

Since I have books on the shelves, I used the weight of the books to hold the ribbon in place. But you could also use a command hook.

Simple Candle Holder

To make a simple candle holder, I added a ring of gold jingle bells around a purple pillar candle on a small glass plate.

Combined with one of the small wreaths, it’s a really simple and elegant want to add Christmas decorations to the bottom of my bar cart.

Bar Cart Purple Christmas Decor

I told you I wasn’t leaving this room, right?

So I moved my bar cart in to make serving my favorite Christmas beverage (Hot Apple Cider) easier.

I love the warmth that the copper mugs* and ice bucket* exude.

You may be wondering why I need an ice bucket for hot apple cider.

Insulated ice buckets are my favorite way to keep warm beverages hot (when you can’t plug in a crock pot).

That’s it for my purple Christmas decorations ideas. Hopefully, you love it as much as I do 🙂
