Christmas Decorating Theme: Merry & Bright
It's almost December and many of you have already begun your Christmas shopping and decorating. I'm planning on pulling out my boxes of decorations this weekend and getting to work! As promised, today is the first day of several posts that where I'll be covering different color scheme and decorating ideas to get your creative juices flowing. I know many of you are just like me and look forward to changing things up from year to year. To kick things off, I'm starting with the colorful and cheerful theme: Merry and Bright. Enjoy and please share your thoughts, ideas, etc!
Color Scheme: Change up the usual red and green color combination with fuchsia and turquoise for a fresh and updated look.

Float single roses or carnations in stemless wine glasses for a simple and elegant centerpiece, or place around your home for added pops of color.
Wrap a large canvas or piece of art with festive wallpaper and hang above a console table or dining buffet (as shown in the image above). Mini cupcakes and pies that coordinate with your color scheme make for great desserts at your holiday cocktail party! [Image via Hostess With The Mostess]
These beautiful Double Glass Ornaments are great for dressing up the tree! They also look great when hung from a chandelier, over a kitchen island, or from the bannister of a staircase.
