The Colors of Christmas

Linda LudwigChristmas flowers, Flower colors, Pittsburgh Florist

Red and green are the traditional Christmas colors.  But a sparkling holiday display can be so much more!  Be sure to consider other hues when decorating your home, or giving floral gifts:

  • Flowers in chartreuse green shades blend beautifully with deep reds

  • Try combining pinks with winter evergreen foliage.  Light pink is fun with silver touches.  For drama, combine deep pinks with red-orange.
  • Red and burgundy create a warm, sophisticated look.  Accent any shade of red with gold or bronze.
  • Create a vision of a winter wonderland with an arrangement of all white flowers.  Accent with your blooms with silver or burnished gold.  Add a touch of chartreuse with green hypericum berries.

  • Combine flowers in shades of ivory, mellow gold and cream. Pearl garlands and jewels give these colors a romantic flair.
  • Make a bold, contemporary statement; Mix bright citrus colors of orange and lime green with hot pinks and teal shades.

If in doubt, ask our floral designers for advice on flower color combinations for a vibrant holiday display.
