Christmas Preparations

I’m already out gathering greenery and berries for the first wreath and table decoration trials, but wondering what colour scheme to go with.  Last year I was pleased with this white table decoration but should I go back to the usual red and gold or maybe add some artificial purples for a more exotic look? I do think there is a place for some additional non-traditional colour at Christmas, but honestly I do not believe there is a place in the festivities for blue – controversial?  Maybe.
