Instead of the usual eclectic mix of colors and patterns, this year I have decided to opt for a conceptual and aesthetic Christmas. My rule for presents is one color, one tasty treat, one object, and one piece of jewelry. Once unwrapped, everyone will have their own color theme! There will also be a few less color coordinated items though, I promise!
