A Vintage Pink Christmas

I love the magic of Christmas and all its whimsy, every year I get into a different color scheme, for a few years I did reds, prims, berries, then all tinsel and shiny brite, this year I'm loving pink, pink and more pink. At the office w/decided on blue's, whites and silvers for a snowy, snowman, winter wonderland.
