Christmas was a big deal when I was working at MSLO. December was the most popular issue of the year, and we would fret over each and every last detail. A new color palette was chosen each time, and the traditional Christmas colors were given a bit of a tweak. Not your standard berry red and holly green... some years pink would sneak in, some years blue, some times a bit of silver.
I have high hopes of making a few things for my little family this year, so I've been playing around with my own color story. Bright spring greens, orange reds, and even a bit of pink. I will be so pleased if I can finish the stockings, as it's the first year we've actually had a mantle to hang them on.
I purchased all the fabrics you see here from the lovely selection at purlsoho.com.
