Things don’t always have to be matchy-matchy. Don’t be “scurrred” to mix golds, silvers, glitters ‘n’ patterns. I’m obsessed with texture and I broke down the monochromatic color scheme with brown packaging paper and twine. Those decorative hole punchers are SO much fun to play with. Silk flowers aren’t always tacky and cheesy; it just depends on it’s application. I glued seafoam and gold colored mini silk flowers to the centers of the folded paper pendants and instantly added a shabby-chic/Victorian look to everything. For the beverages, I used coconut juice that came in these lovely shaped bottles, that looked just like a snow in them.
Step outside of the box, be resourceful and don’t take things too literally. The red and green combo was SO a gazillion years ago. Play with fun patterns (I used a geometric one) and have fun with a fresh color palette.
