The idea for this blue and white transferware tree has been brewing away in my mind for months now!

I love blue and white, in fact my dining room is decorated with my vintage transferware dishes and white ironstone. As I found myself thinking about decorating for Christmas, my mind went to my flocked Christmas tree that I purchased last year.

I wonder...

Could I hang actual dishes and teacups on my tree?

Could I fill the tree with transferware-like ornaments that I can make inexpensively, using just white balls, a blue Sharpie and my imagination?

Could I hang those chippy spindles that I recently made?

What about my small white ironstone pitchers? Would those work?

Could I use my blue and white striped farmhouse wreath as a tree topper?

Would it all come together like I see it in my mind?

The answer to ALL the above is...YES!

I added pearl sprays from the wedding department at Hobby Lobby, sparkly white snowflakes, a couple of blue velvet ornaments and striped ribbon! I bought blue and white drawer knobs and attached them to wood rounds that I gave the same chippy paint technique to as my spindles.

I hung the plates, teacups and pitchers from these stainless steel hooks and used these plate hangers. I found blue and white ticking striped ribbon from Walmart (similar to this one) and this similar trim from Hobby Lobby that's currently on clearance! (I bought everything my store had!).

This blue and white Christmas tree is unconventional! It's filled with things that you've probably never seen on a Christmas tree before in your life!

But that's why I love it so much! It has a French farmhouse feel that is just so beautiful!

Have you ever decorated an unconventional Christmas tree before? I want to know! I'll be sharing more details of the Sharpie ornaments soon!
