What could be more magical than a Christmas village display? Especially if it has Palm Springs vibes and the cutest little pink Christmas trees!
Holiday decor has expanded far beyond red and green these days. You can use any of your favorite colors to make a fun display, including candy-colored pink for maximum adorable points.
Gather several pink trees and mid-century houses to create this Christmas village. Here’s how it’s done.

All the Pink Christmas Trees
Start by collecting tabletop Christmas trees in varying heights and shades of pink. Mine range from a two-inch bottle brush tree to a 24-inch tinsel tree.
Pink Ceramic Trees
The classic ceramic Christmas trees now come in many different colors, including shades like ballerina pink and rose gold.
I chose the Mr. Christmas 14-inch and 7-inch trees, and Target’s 4.5-inch ceramic tree ornament. They are all “Pink Panther” pink with white snow-frosted edges.
My ceramic trees are battery-powered with LED lights. The lights might seem a little faint if you’re used to old-fashioned ceramic trees. Look for plug-in trees over battery-powered if you prefer a stronger lighting effect.
Pink Tinsel Trees
Next add pink tinsel trees adorned in colorful ornaments. This rose gold tinsel tree is dressed up in 1.75-inch Shiny Brite ornaments gifted from Christopher Radko.
Paint a Pink Tree
If you can’t find a pink tree that you like, it’s a piece of cake to paint one. Dollar Tree has 18-inch Christmas trees in white that make the perfect base for spray painting.
Yep, the tree on the left started as a plain white tree from the D store.
If you want more of a reflective tinsel style, look for a metallic pink paint like this. And if it ever chips, you can always apply a fresh coat of paint.
Or pick up a pink tabletop tree ready to decorate.
Pink Cone Trees
Fill in your display with pink cone trees. These modern and festive Christmas decorations are all over Pinterest. But they can be hard to find in pink, and they tend to be pricey.
Luckily, cone trees are cheap and easy to make with pink fabric strips and hot glue. I’ll share the instructions in my next article.
Pink Bottle Brush Trees
Bottle brush trees make the perfect filler for a mid-century Christmas village. Select a couple different heights to fill in the gaps in your display.
Mid-Century Modern Christmas Village
Finally, add retro houses to turn your pink tree display into a swanky Palm Springs Christmas village.
World Market has a set of three houses featuring mid-century rooflines, breezeblocks, bubble lamps and palm trees. When can I move in?
Each house lights up from inside and out. They include colorful bottle brush trees to tie in with the rest of your display. And one even has a mod cat in the window!
The whole set sold out fast online, but you might be able to find them individually at your local World Market store.
Here’s how they look lit up at dusk.
Mid-century Christmas villages are harder to track down than the more traditional ones, but I’ve seen a few out there. Here are some favorites.
- Wood Mid Century House Set Of 3: These are the World Market houses in my display. They are cheerful and so much fun.
- Retro Christmas Village: Diane from The Retro Christmas Card Company designs the cutest mid-mod Christmas products. Her new village features MCM elements like Sputnik chandeliers and a Malm fireplace. The houses are translucent acrylic, so they store flat and you can add lights to give them a backlit glow.
- Mod Putz Houses DIY Kit Set of 5: Don’t forget to check Etsy! Amaya Jade And Co. sells a kit of modern Putz houses pre-cut on cardstock, so you can build your own tiny paper Christmas village in retro style.
The Grinch’s Whoville Christmas village would also tie in well with a pink tree display.
Pink Christmas Magic
Once you have your pink Christmas tree village all set up, let it snow! Apply a generous dusting of sparkling snow to get that holiday magic.
