So we bought a pink Christmas tree…

We bought a pink Christmas tree. I’m not even joking.

I have a pink Christmas tree

I’ve never had a Christmas tree, or at least not since I moved out of my parents house. All my apartments have been too small or haven’t had a good spot for one, but when we moved to the house we realized a tree would indeed fit in the living room. So we went shopping…

I know what you’re thinking and no, it was not my idea. This is all Markus.
The store had trees in 4 colours. The normal and sensible green, some really pretty black and white trees and then some bright pink ones. Markus took one look at the pink tree and went “That one. We’re having a pink tree!”
I tried talking him out of it since, I mean, you can’t have a pink Christmas tree, can you? We didn’t have to get a green one, but surely a black or white tree would be prettier? But no, he wanted the pink one. “Come on, how many people have pink trees..? Exactly! We would be the only ones!”

In the end I succumbed and we did buy the pink tree. And I actually love it! Every time I see it I can’t help but laugh and smile. It’s so bright and funny! :D

We couldn’t wait so it’s already in place in the living room. Since this is our first ever Christmas tree we don’t have much decorations for it yet. Just some lights, some candy canes and a few silver ornaments so far. I think I’ll try to find some black ornaments for it, that might be cool.

    I never thought I’d say this, but it looks awesome! I want pink tree too, and I have rather skeptical feelings towards christmas decoration in general.

    Absolutely Fabulous!

    Hee hee, I love it. I may even send you some ornaments if you want. Handmade even. Doubt if it will make it this year, but next for sure.

    Rusta eller? Jag köpte min vita gran där förra året. :) Jag har sett den där chockrosa granen där men du är den första jag vet som faktiskt köpt en. :D Unikt! Lite väl vågat för mig dock. :P

      Japp, från Rusta. Det är lite väl vågat för mig också egentligen… Men vi har redan ganska mycket lila i vardagsrummet så det funkar, färgen står inte ut SÅ mycket i verkligheten :)

    I love traditions as much as I love breaking from them. This unusual tree is such a fun statement. I hope you really enjoy your holidays! :yay:

    That’s definitely something I have never seen is a pink Christmas tree! I totally love it though… and I never would have thought of that myself, either. I’d be super shocked if my boyfriend was head-over-heels for a pink tree, lmao! It looks cute, though! :yay:

    OMG! That is the most unique and awesome Christmas tree I have ever seen! I can’t believe it was Markus’ idea. Peter would never ever want to get one like that. I think it is so unique. It will be something you will remember forever!!

    So technically I’m color blind, but damn! We need to cut out some of the lower branches of to fit more presents for your awesome dog. Oh and the cat don’t want any.
