Fashion proceeds to influence home decoration, and it has attained Christmas tree decorations also. I really do a Tiffany-inspired tree that I predict the Holly Golightly Tree. Tiffany-blue is your major color in the decorations and boxes. Then I put in accents of black (as in Audrey’s LBD), a great deal of sparkle and classic decorations to produce a very stylish and pretty tree. Here are some shopping tips to get you started.
— Valorie from The Visual Vamp
My tree is your classic vintage silver tree from the 1960s. There is plenty of space between the branches to hang lots of decorations. I got a selection of Tiffany boxes for free on Craigslist a couple of years back, and that is what started the idea for the tree. I tied every box with black ribbon, and also the tree stand is really one huge Tiffany box.
