I’m donating a tannenboing to my daughter’s school auction this year and the theme colors are pink and orange. So we decided to decorate this year’s modern Christmas tree with non-traditional pink and orange pom poms. (Disclaimer: Zoe’s birthday is in December and she wants to have a pink an orange theme for that too – so I thought I could make the boing look less like Christmas and more like a celebration boing if it has some peppy colors).
I’ve also been dying to try decorating our aluminum Christmas tree with the pom poms. I had a thought that the large size and soft shape would be a nice complement to the brushed aluminum spiral. And, the pom poms are so cheap and it doesn’t take many poms to fill out the tree.
So, here you see our first effort at a pink and orange Christmas tree. Looks modern, and fun, and maybe a bit feminine (which should help a great deal during the birthday party)!
I think we need more poms. I added some of the orange CB2 asteroid ornaments. I also have some white asteroid ornaments that I could add, but I think I’ll just stick with the two colors. The orange looks really great with the uplight under it – so warm! We need to make and add more pom poms.
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to decorate your boing – you might consider pom poms. Really cheap and easy and you can change the colors every year.
