    Is there any purple in your holiday decor?

    Just wondering... if any of your Christmas / holiday decorations are purple.

    Of course, you'll want to know why... it's because the 2012 Holiday Flourish line has purples in it. This is the 5th Christmas/winter collection by Peggy Toole, who designs for Robert Kaufman.

    Is this a new trend?

    All my Christmas decorations have purple in them......my whole house has purple! Now I am trying to find a certain Asian panel that has the white cranes, black, dark gray and a muted purple. I want to make a wall hanging for our family room but I have come to the conclusion this fabric may have been discontinued.

    I think Purple is going to be hot next year. I found some lavendar silk ponsettia that I made an arrangement for my mom. When I went back to Joann's there were no more of the lavendar.

    DD#1 LOVES purple and she would have fun with purple decorations... however she lives in a houseful of testosterone and they may not like that LOL

    I hear you! Guys are not so into purple.

    I did see some lavender poinsettias in the grocery store tonight. (I still prefer red ones myself...)

    I have a friend at work who loves purple. I'm making her purple free standing lace ornaments and an angel tree topper.

    Purple is common in Christmas and other holiday decorations. Depending on the shade it is a beautiful accent. Looking forward to seeing the new lines.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I've used purple accents in my decorations for years. Not lavender so much, but the rich dark purples with gold and white lights. I love the color. Plus, purple is the color of royalty and it is the birthday of a king, after all
