Technicolor Christmas1 of 13
While retail stores roll out mounds of red and green holiday decorations year after year, consider this advice from our friends at HOUZZ: Christmas doesn't have to be a strictly red-and-green holiday. Feel free to razzle, dazzle and delight your family and guests with gorgeous color alternatives that still say "Merry Christmas!"

Get little ones excited about decorating with this wild pink palette. Between the sock monkeys and explosion of color, this kid-approved tree is fun for all ages.

Go Green4 of 13
For a fun, edgier holiday, cover your tree with bright ocean blues and lime green decorations. The feathers are optional, of course, but are a great addition if you're feeling adventurous.
Pure Gold5 of 13
The key to decorating with a single color successfully is to mix textures and to vary the size of the ornaments and decorations. The more you can layer, the greater the visual impact.
Purple Reign6 of 13
Purple has long been known as the color of royalty, so adding a regal touch to your holiday decor is as easy as hanging an ornament. The cool amethyst tones contrast elegantly with the rich red ornaments and nearby warm cherrywood tabletop.
Heavy Metal7 of 13
Adding bronze accents to your otherwise expected green decor elevates the traditional scheme and naturally lends itself to a woodsy, naturalistic feel. The metallic earthy color elegantly pops against wood and neutral tones.
Tropical Punch8 of 13
The tropics inspired this color palette. If adding fruit to your fir tree isn't possible, get the same Floridian feel with brightly colored ornaments in citrus colors like lime, lemon and orange.
In the Navy9 of 13
Navy is practically a neutral and goes well with anything, including Christmas decorations. Mix it with layers of silver sparkle and white accents to keep it feeling fun and fresh.
Rainbow Bright10 of 13
If you just can't decide on a color scheme, why not integrate a few? This colorful, quirky room manages to make mixing blue, green and pink work by evenly distributing the various colors around the room.
Home Grown11 of 13
While deciding on a new color combination for your tree, look to your home's decor. The inspiration was successfully taken from the color of the curtains, the hanging wicker pendant and the white flokati rug.

Tickled Pink12 of 13
The cheeky addition of pink keeps the color theme fresh and a bit sassy. This is an easy way for those who love the idea of mixing it up by adding to what they already have…traditional with an instant twist.
Lovely Lavendar13 of 13
Taking a cue from the decorative dinner plates, light purple and white look sweet, romantic and cheery on the Christmas tree.
