Our Gold, Silver and Hymnal Themed Christmas Tree is filled with vintage touches that are both thrifty and unique. I absolutely love our tree this holiday season, and I can’t wait to share all the details with you guys!
Before I start talking about the decorations I chose for our gold, silver, and hymnal themed Christmas tree, I want to talk a little bit about the tree itself. I ordered it last year from a company called Puleo International, and it the most beautiful tree I have ever owned.
This year Puleo International sent me a second tree for my sunroom, which you can read all about, here.

I love this company for so many reasons. First of all, their trees look so realistic and I love the fact that the branches are different lengths, just like you would see on a real evergreen. I also love that it is pre-lit, and so easy to put together.
My favorite thing about this tree is the fact that it is so much more affordable than many of the brands and local store prices I have looked at. If you’re on the hunt for a new artificial Christmas tree this year, I highly recommend Puleo International!
For my Christmas tree decorations, I decided to keep things neutral. I love traditional reds and greens, but for my home, neutral is really what I love best this time of year! I have a mixture of silver ornaments and gold ornaments on my tree that I have collected over the past 4-5 years. The mixture of gold and silver gives my tree a vintage feel.
Mercury glass is a favorite, and you’ll see some large mercury glass bulbs tucked deep within the tree on sturdy branches (my boys can get pretty wild at times believe it or not). These beautiful bulbs came from Home Goods last year. I love the way they shimmer and sparkle when the twinkling lights hit them.
Some larger white bulbs covered in fur bring a pop of white and add a cozy feel. I also have some large silver pine cones on my tree (they came from Hobby Lobby) that look like glass, but they are actually plastic!
I purchased the neutral Santa Claus a few years ago at Marshall’s, and I love the 1940’s vibe that he has.
A small white church covered in glitter came from my sister in law, and all the other ornaments on my tree have a vintage feel as well.
Believe it or not, two of my ornaments this year came from Walmart! Both the white, glittery pine cone that has a small scene carved out with a deer and some trees, and the snow globe ornament with a small church inside were both Walmart scores!
I made the thicker bead garland with some twine and beads that I ordered online, but the thinner garland with wooden beads spaced out a bit came from Walmart as well! I couldn’t find the exact match online, but I linked one for you here that is similar.
All of the gold ornaments that you see on the tree were thrifted. You can tell that they are tarnished and a bit aged, but I really love them and they cost so little!
Every time I shop thrift stores I’m on the hunt for more gold ornaments. You can go thrift shopping for Christmas decor with me here if you are interested! I also wrote a whole post about thrifty Christmas decor here if you’d like more ideas.
Finally, I added my DIY hymn garland to our Christmas tree for some texture. I’ve been using it for three years now, and I absolutely love it! You can find the whole tutorial here if you are looking to make one yourself. They are so simple and cost very little, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. I personally feel like they add such a statement to your tree with very little effort.
I am still on the hunt for the perfect star for my tree. I have been looking at thrift shops and antique stores, but haven’t had any luck yet. I used a tin star last year which I liked, but I’m not sure that I want to use it again this year.
For my tree skirt, I simply used a drop cloth and tucked it around the base of the tree. So easy and affordable! Eventually it will get covered in presents anyway, so why spend a lot of money?
Well I hope you enjoyed reading about my gold, silver and hymnal themed tree this year. I absolutely love the view as you walk in the living room and see a second tree behind it in the sunroom. Not only that, but also the view from the dining room is magical as well. All the Christmas trees this year are making me so happy! What a gift to be able to have a tree in almost every room in my home!
