A yellow Christmas...

Boughs and wreaths and ribbons in reds and greens have started to pop up all over town. Sequins and glitter dazzle in soft twinkling lights. While I'll always love the tradition behind red and green palette, the thought of stepping out of the box and personalizing with an unconventional colour made me instantly happy. A simple white Christmas tree adorned with bright yellow balls make a big statement. Why not decorate in the colour you love the most, or that best suits your current decor. Lee Kleinhelter's white and yellow theme would certainly make the season merry and bright (below and bottom) .




This would be my suggestion for a perfect holiday place setting at Lee's bright, beautiful space. A napkin bow? A perfect simple, chic accessory and functional too!

LOVE IT!!!! I have always followed the rule of an all white Christmas (my own rule) or for my Showroom, grey with touches of green....but yellow...I would have never thought of yellow as a holiday color, I always refer to yellow as "Spring is upon us color".

Thanks for the fresh idea!

Francine your showroom sounds amazing! You'll have to share pictures of it all decked out for the holidays.
I also would have thought of yellow for spring and summer, but a bit of a switch up is always refreshing.

Oh my! The napkin bow is a GREAT idea! I might do this! How is that wrapped? Looks like a ribbon around the middle?

Aren't the bow napkins just darling? Just a clever, simple idea - looks like a simple ribbon or strip of paper binding it.
I plan to try this very soon!

Love love love this!

The yellow is so chic + the bow? Fantastic!! I must print this out -- perfect inspiration. I think I will do this for Christmas with aubergine, gray, or red napkins.
