Search Volume for Pink Christmas Trees Is Up 125% This Year

Here are some ways to make the trend your own.


You may find yourself attached to your own personal style of Christmas tree. Maybe you grew up stringing popcorn and cranberries onto fishing line while listening to Bing Crosby, or you love pulling out your popsicle-stick creation from third grade. You might like tossing tinsel, or adhering to a strict (and chic) color scheme. But it seems like folks are looking to shake up their tree style in 2019—at least according to Wayfair's latest data.

The company has noticed that search volume for pink Christmas trees is way up: There's been a 125 percent increase in people searching that term on its website this fall compared to the same time frame in 2018. The rise has been so significant that Wayfair has even curated a page of ornaments and other decor in complementary colors for a pink tree, such as matte black balls and glittery turquoise ribbons.

6' Hot Pink Pine Artificial Christmas Tree
The Holiday Aisle

We have a few theories as to why everyone's jonesing for a pink tree this year: As with so many other design trends, you have to consider Instagram. A pink tree would catch a follower's eye as they scroll past, and it looks nice with the Valencia filter. Plus, we know young people are crazy for millennial pink, and adore drinking rosé. The next seasonal step is a rosé-colored holiday tree.

If you're intimidated by the idea of a magenta Douglas fir, or a neon hue sounds a little modern and not your style, consider the other options below. You could choose a subtler blush hue, or a really soft rose gold that almost resembles champagne. What could be more celebratory for the month of December? There are also pink trees in whimsical, almost Seussian shapes. Or you could just get a tiny one to plop on a table, while your main tree stays green.

As for color schemes, you could decorate with gold balls for glamour, or keep it simple and striking with white lights. A palette of creams with an accent of sage green would be beautiful against a bright pink backdrop—it's like the typical red and green Christmas look, but turned on its head. Or just throw your regular ornaments on there and see how they look against a lively salmon hue. That popsicle-stick construction is suddenly brand-new.

Here are a few picks from us, so give you can give the trend a whirl.
