Decorating for the Holidays in Red & Gold
The holidays are such a fun time to decorate aren’t they? As I write this post, I’m cuddled in a big cozy lounge chair, smelling my balsam fir candles and listening to music. I have red and gold on the mind … This is currently my favorite color scheme for the holidays. It’s so warm & rich. It’s also incredibly easy to incorporate into nearly any decor, to spruce up for the holidays.
Add a few decorative pillows in reds, gold and neutrals. Place decorative candles in your color scheme around in small ‘tablescape’ designs. Add some festive flowers or a table top tree for either your dinner table or just to decorate, to bring that holiday feeling into your home. Having special dinnerware and crystal to use for the holidays is always a nice treat and not only would it make your holiday dinner event extra special, they would also make wonderful gifts.

Some are economical and some are more suited to lifestyles of the more financially fortunate – but I’m shopping with Pinopoly money – so it’s all good in the blog neighborhood 🙂
