Christmas Colors

When I see red and green Christmas decorations, I remember Christmases from when I was little. I love red and green.

But this year I'm tempted to break with tradition. Isn't the blue bulb beautiful? Do you have a favorite Christmas-decorating color scheme? Are you "red and green" or something else?

Well, I like the softer colors! My Christmas china has pinkish ribbons and soft green holly. Some wonderful fresh pale poinsettias......bingo!

o yeah! red and gold is our choice and we love it! Your blue bulb looks very pretty and I've also used blue bulbs some years ago but since 8 years we are once more traditional ;-)))

I have decorations I've had for so many years...a bit eclectic. But I'd love everything blue and green with splashed of red, pink and silver.

Definately not a red and green girl, but this year I have come closer. I am currently in love with Sheri Berry Holiday! Greens are non-traditional, corals instead of reds, pinks, and blues! Don't forget that 70's flair. Oh and the selvages.....
I haven't been able to cut those up yet, too lovely.

Merry Christmas,

KT

I remember one year when I was a child my mom decorated our tree in just blue and green ornaments and blue lights.
My ornaments are one that I have collected each year for each of my kids and for me and my husband. All different.

White. Sometimes just white. Sometimes with gold. Sometimes with red. Your blue is very elegant!

My decorations are magenta, pink, orange and chartreuse! I love it, but I still love red and green too.

I must say I do love traditional red and green but over the last 10 years or so I've been getting a lot of shoe ornaments I must have over 20 or these little beauties...and cat ones because my cat is such a super star in this family...
The blue is stunning though, for sure

I'm a bit of a traditionalist. It's usually hot over hear in OZ, so we don't have the snow - beach weather, but I try(?) to keep to red and green, but as I still have some that the kids made me years ago and others that have come from swaps etc, it's a bit eclectic. That to me is what Christmas is all about.

Any color works for me. A few years a go I had a blue tree. This year's is more traditional. My brother asked for red... so he's getting red, silver, gold and green.

That blue would look awesome with a deep plum....

My favorite decorating for Christmas is memories - all the decorations on the tree are either handmade by myself, family or friends, old ornaments belonging to my late father or special ornaments to remember trips like miniature plates from Williamsburg, a tiny hand carved totem pole from Alaska and ornaments bought or made each year to remember special times in each family member's life. Each and every ornament has a memory attached - of a person, a place or an event.

Hi Karen -
This year, I'm loving pink and red. That's what I used to decorate my sewing room tree. I also made a new christmas quilt with pink, red and candy apple green.
beautiful soft blue ornament - lovely.

I love this blue!! Seems we've been into white and blue for a few years. But I do like multi-colored lights and decorations for the tree!

Red and golden-yellow glass ornaments, honey colored real candles and a real tree (green).

I like doing different color themes (but include some of the favorite ornaments along with them.) So one year red and gold, another year blue and silver, another was retro with stuffed animals. This year my daughter (age 14) is getting into it and said "no gold" so silver and any ornaments without gold are on the tree. It makes it fun to change it up. One of these times it's going to be purple.
