"Untraditional" Holiday Decor

I must admit, I am a bit traditional in the way I decorate for Christmas. Nothing makes me happier than red, green and gold! I love the "traditional" ornaments and decorations, nothing too flashy or out there really. But when I came across these pictures, I decided that maybe it is time for me to think about doing something different next year!! Here are a few ideas you might want to steal for yourself!!

This is actually my favorite. I love the limb hanging over the table with Christmas ball ornaments attached. It has a little bit of a traditional element with the ornaments, but the twig is so fresh and organic. (Plus I am digging the color of the chairs around the table!!!)

I am a big Christmas ball ornament fan!! What a great easy way to decorate a staircase with ribbon and ornaments!! Pretty easy!! The clear ornaments hung over the table add a nice contemporary feel to the space. Looks very clean and sleek.

This is a little out there for me! A tree on a mirror made with Post Its!! Pretty crazy, but simple and cute as well!! Great for someone who has limited space!

Pink tree...enough said!!

Again, another organic element that is super easy to do. The pitcher that the twigs are in has an interesting pattern on it, kind of contemporary.
How do you like to decorate for Christmas?? Are you very traditional or do you like to spice it up a bit!!! I'd love to know!!! Post a comment and e-mail pictures if you have them!!!! PLEASE!!!!

Do you think your hubbs would go for a pink tree? I don't think mine would :)

They are sooooooooo cute though!
