Christmas is full of traditions and colors, but while many of us love those classic red and green motifs, daring holiday decorators are moving toward single color themes to create a more dramatic look for their holiday décor. One of the most popular color choices, not surprisingly, is blue. Blue is a beautiful reflection of the night sky, snow storms and peaceful, woodsy settings. It can also reflect the sea and its aquatic life too. What does all that mean? Well for starters, it means there are so many different shades of blue, you might not want to stick with just one. Whether you choose to exclusively use blue Christmas decorations, or you want to intermingle them with white, silver and other snowy color themes, these beautiful blue ornaments can really add to the beauty of your home, hearth and tree.
