holiday palette {mist+bronze}

I know that blue has become somewhat of a classic Christmas color but I never had given too much consideration to it for my personal decor. I always thought it was too cold. Then I saw a misty blue paired with bronze and decided it was going to be the palette for my decor this year. It is the perfect combination for the casual warmth I was searching for this season.

(nut garland via studio choo, tablescape and tree via canadian house and home, diy garland via 100 layer cake, cocoa and churros via cannelle et vanille, card via rifle design and place setting via canadian house and home)
I don't know about you but I am so craving that hot cocoa and churros right now.

I love this gorgeous palette and I'm with you - blue has certainly peaked my interest starting this year. I'm especially fond of this vintage-y Tiffany blue: it is perfection.

PS: I am just waiting for the opportunity to make that DIY cupcake garland.

Oh how pretty... I put up blue & silver last year.. But my mom thought it was simply cold & boring.. and not christmasy... Hence I've moved back to red & gold this year.. Playing safe with the traditional colours.. ;-)

Great idea and fabulous inspiration!
I bought a lot of Z gallerie's bronze Christmas ornaments a few years ago and I love the idea of pairing them with pale blue! Thanks:)

Blair that is gorgeous! I am always looking for different holiday colors, this is a great combo.

pen.ny said...

I want those churros too! And the nut garland!!!

Anne @ The City Sage said...

it's SO SO good! plus you take it to a whole other level by calling it 'mist and bronze' instead of 'blue and brown'. you have a way with words blair!

Deliciously Organized said...

So pretty...and now I really want a churro! haven't had one if forever :)

Michelle said...

Ooh this looks amazing!

doug said...

I used this palette a few years ago for Christmas in my house and I loved it...and you're making me hungry

Beautiful. I love this combo and keep thinking of the gorgeous simple runner you had at Thanksgiving, also sort of bronzish. I'm thinking of making one for Christmas.
