Romantic Cottage Christmas Tree

This year I was inspired to create a new themed tree... the romantic cottage Christmas tree!!
I knew I was going to put this tree in my bedroom which is decorated in a French country style.
 Where better to display this tree than in front of some purple toile curtains?

For this tree, I was drawn to the softer pastel colors...
...as if the ornaments had sat in a box and faded.
Additionally, I didn't want a "loud" tree in my bedroom. This one had to be soft!

I also added in some dried roses.
It was a little bit by accident. I had not intended too, but you see, they sat neglected in the vase forever and dried. (They were alive in this post - yeah like a month ago. SHH!
I was walking by the dried flowers in the vase as I was putting ornaments on this tree.
And the vision struck! 
So I tucked them into the tree. 
And I liked how it looked. So I tucked more in. 
It really goes with the romantic cottage look, don't you think?

I liked their faded color.  They matched the ornaments too.

It was coincidence that this romantic tree matched the drapes!

For this tree, I was drawn to a pastel color palette.
Also, there are a few mercury glass ornaments tucked in here and there.

The tree topper came from an Etsy shop. Isn't it lovely? It is actually an ornament but I secured it to the top of the tree. It matches the tree perfectly, both in color and style!

I prefer viewing the tree at night time. 
The soft glow of the tree provides some nice ambient light, doesn't it?
I love laying in bed at night looking at the twinkling lights.

However, it looks nice in the daytime too.
You can create your own romantic cottage tree too - go for softer colors, metallics, and ornaments that look more handmade. 
I also prefer the look of the flocked tree with these muted colors.  The flocked tree also seems more romantic to me too!

I hope you all enjoyed my tree!
Joyeux Noël!
