Fresh Holiday Decorating Theme: Yellow & Green

Give a fun and fresh twist to traditional Christmas decorations this holiday season. Deck the halls, living room, dining room, and all of your favorite spaces with a bold green-and-yellow color scheme that's both unique and inviting.

    • Warm Welcome

      When using an unconventional color palette for your Christmas decorating, add traditional touches that will still allow your home to have a festive appeal. Here, an entryway table topped with tall, cut orchids, glittering glass-enclosed candles, and decorative white Christmas trees shows off this home's gallant green and sunny yellow color scheme. An unadorned garland swept across the banister of the curved stairway adds both texture and a natural feel to the foyer.

    • Streamline Stockings

      These simple white felt stockings have been hung along a staircase with stylish flair. To add an element of modern simplicity to a brightly decorated entryway, tie basic white stockings along a stair rail with brightly colored ribbons.

    • Luminous Living

      Who says you need a big tree to celebrate Christmas? For a fresh look, trade a single traditional pine tree for three conical boxwoods. Mix and mingle bright green and yellow items with everyday neutrals to add novelty to your normal decorating scheme.

    • Fanciful Flowers

      Make a simple floral arrangement that can be repurposed after the Christmas season. Place a basic bouquet of bright yellow flowers on a serving tray for a sunny and casual holiday look.

    • Tonal Treats

      Set out treats that will compliment your color theme. A bowl of bright yellow lemon drops and a clear glass container of colored candy cane sticks match the green and yellow color scheme perfectly.

    • Perky Presents

      Continue a vibrant color scheme right down to the presents. Using a bold mix of greens and yellows, wrap your gifts in decorative paper and ribbon.

    • Dashing Dining

      A lime green table runner swept across a dining room table adds a contrasting pop of color to this room's canary yellow walls. A touch of boxwood in the chandelier makes the space party ready. Use floral wire to attach sprigs of boxwood. Start at the bottom of the chandelier and work up, attaching the boxwood sprigs in layers. Be sure all of it is pointing downward.

    • Trendy Table

      This Christmas, skip the traditional red-and-green display and treat your table to a fresh and sunny new look. Trade standard evergreens for large green and white hydrangea blossoms and swap holly for lemon yellow berries. Simple, colorful changes add a cheerful splendor to your everyday dining room space.

    • Sunny Setting

      Dress up everyday white dishes for Christmas with brilliant green and sunshine yellow accents. Wrap a crisp green napkin as you would a small Christmas gift package, adding a flourish of fresh greenery and a tiny white ornament. Then, tie the napkin with a contrasting yellow ribbon and a personalized polka dot gift tag. To complete this cheery look, place a sunshine yellow rose beside the place setting of each of your holiday guests.
