A go-to color combo. Anyone can get behind it is red and green. Keep it classy and traditional with color coordinating your ornaments, whether they’re homemade or store-bought. However, you can customize the colors to specifically match each other without having to guess if what you decorate with is the same shade of green or red as the other decorations. You’ll have the full control you’ve always wanted without having to curse different ornaments being just one shade off from the others.
Even if red and green isn’t your forte, you can always try something a little different. Try adding some shine to your decor by replacing the green with gold. It’s more subtle and still classy. Want more sparkly and glamorous ornaments? Try going full silver and gold! It’s a great ode to our favorite Christmas classics.
