The 12 Palates of Christmas - #5

#5 - the holly and the ivy

The most classic of classic Christmas palates, red and green. This is when you don't mess with tradition. Sure, we've all been taught not to get too "matchy-matchy" but there's something wonderful that happens when you surround yourself in a traditional, classic palate like this, it's almost magic. Because it's so styled, it can feel like it's own magical world, the key is again to go all the way. If you're committing to red and green, make sure every major surface is covered, preferable the walls too! it will really make the white of your dress stand out if the whole background is colored in! A little sparkly here and there, a pattern in your colors, and let the season saturate you festivities!
