For many years, I used to shove absolutely every decoration I owned on to the Christmas Tree.
Then I started colour combinations and much to my husband’s disgust, had to buy more decorations because we didn’t have enough of the colours I wanted.
It started with some purple decorations I had bought in Hong Kong. Now what goes with purple? Navy blue looked good.
Then I found some beautiful fuschia decorations in the January sales. Great, a new combination for that year. So I snapped up boxes of turquoise decorations as well.
To keep things interesting I invested in gold AND silver so I could change the look just by changing the tinsel and other little bits.
But this year I have returned to the traditional colours of red and green with gold.
Someone commented the other day that it’s not Christmas without red and green decorations.
What colours have you used to decorate your home with this festive season? Are you like me and use the same colours for everything else from wrapping paper to Bon Bons, tablecloths, teatowels, etc? I blame the Virgo in me!
