personally, my main xmas tree is always an explosion of color - and i love it that way - but i also have a white xmas tree that traditionally only has white/silver ornaments. looking at this, i'm thinking about trying it with pale aqua, pink, turquoise etc this year.
Cute idea- holiday themed shower- each guest is assigned a holiday for their gift (a platter for the Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas ornaments, champagne glasses for NYE, etc.)
Play on the end-of-year aspect of Father Time with a collection of vintage clock faces. Partner them with a bold color scheme to emphasize the timepieces' most striking qualities. With their bold graphics, nostalgic charm, and center holes for hanging, these old clock faces make inspired ornaments. Look for glass, paper, enamel, and metal faces; string onto the tree with ribbon.
