Over the 20+ years I worked with events and florals I will tell you that I became quite particular about my holiday tree. Some years I was a purest, only white and gold. Other years I would add punches of magenta and chartreuse with large glittery ornaments. This year I decided to take another path. Let’s take everything we own, those white lights, magenta ornaments and throw everything else on the tree and go old school. Colorful lights, homemade decorations and even a few lights that blinked (sacrilege in my past life). This was a riot. I love my kooky tree. Design can be whatever you love and whatever will bring you joy. Here’s to many fires, cozy blankets, and colorful lights this holiday season.
