Some changes to my Marie Antoinette inspired tree

Pearls, swans, masks make it a Marie Antoinette tree

New this year glitter sleighs

The Queen and a custom fan with monogram

Queen's little lamb with ribbon lead

This is the second year I have had a Marie Antoinette inspired tree in the master bedroom. Last year I had pink glass balls on it and this year I added more glitter ornaments. The sleigh is new. We know that Marie Antoinette enjoyed riding in a sleigh on the grounds of Versailles. The little glitter carriages I found last year and bought all that the shop had. The rest of the ornaments came from Michael's!

There are sprays of pearls at the top of the tree and a lamb with a ribbon lead( just like she had at her mini farm Le Hameau) under the tree.

Of course, in her time, there were no decorated trees it was more of a strictly religious holiday.

Have a Pink day!
