Well, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We had snow finally yesterday, now if it would only stick around a bit and bless us with a white Christmas! The colors of the season are everywhere too!
You see red and green everywhere, but did you know that turquoise is December’s birthstone? I thought I’d put a little Christmas spin on using turquoise and red instead of the traditional holiday colors.
I’ve rounded up a bunch of resources for you to throw your own turquoise and red party. These colors work great for a modern Christmas party. They also work for so many other get togethers: December birthdays, kid’s parties (I used a similar palette here), baby showers, or even an office party.
1//aqua glass: These aqua glasses are actually margarita glasses. They would work great for that, but I love the idea of using them differently. Either as a candle holder, dessert cup, or to place dips or nuts in around your party.
2//red pom pom garland: I’m am loving felt ball anything lately and I love this garland just as much. It’s a great addition to decorate any party. Hang it up or layer it on a table for a centerpiece. Plus, a solid color like this one works throughout the entire year. Hello Valentine’s Day, summer picnics, and a fall apple party!
3//turquoise tray: I’ll have one in every color please! This shiny lacquered tray is perfection. So many uses!
4//red berries: The below picture was the inspiration for this party color scheme, so I had to find some red berries to incorporate into this party plan. They are perfect for a turquoise and red Christmas party, because they are the flower, er, plant? of the season. Poinsettas would also be great florals for this party.
5//red cake stand: A party isn’t complete without cake in my opinion, so I had to include a cake stand. This red, wavy one is super cute!
6//turquoise paper straws: Another party staple is paper straws. They are just so easy to incorporate your color scheme. These turquoise paper straws are super inexpensive too.
7// red favor bags: What better way to send your guests home happy than with a little treat. Pop a Christmas cookie into these favor bags and party favors are done.
8// turquoise festooning: These garlands are great party decor. It’s even better that you can buy them and not have to make them. They come in red and turquoise so you can get both or stick with a more monochrome color palette.
Do you like this modern twist on Christmas colors, or are you more of a traditional red and green fan? What kind of party would you use this turquoise and red color scheme for? I hope you found some of these resources useful to stock up on future party gear!
