Purple Power

The 1970s were all about glitz, disco and a lot of fun color. If you want to add some funky retro style to your Christmas decor, check out these examples of purple and white merriment.

Peace Out

Here's a simple way to add a little purple to your hoildays. This is a great project to make with the kids – super easy and costs just a few dollars in materials. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

Take the Color Everywhere

Don’t forget to include your color scheme in your menu. Here, even the goodie table is tricked out in pretty purple.

Even the Food is Purple

Christmas trees made of lilac, violet and mauve macaroons make a tasty decoration for the dessert table.

Rad Stockings

Turn vintage vinyl go-go boots or platform boots into a one-of-a-kind Christmas stocking. Purple ribbon and a little shag trim were added to pump up the volume. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

Can You Dig It?

For a winter wonderland look, dress the mantel with shimmering silver, soft white and a pop of purple. White shag fabric makes the perfect base, like a layer of fresh snow.

Smile, It's Easy!

Keeping all your holiday decorations in a monochromatic color scheme makes it easy to put together a well-coordinated look.

Set The Scene

A velvet mural with a Christmas Eve scene makes for an exciting backdrop to the pretty white tree.

Wicked Wreath

Create a winter-white wreath with soft shag fabric. A shimmering purple bow and purple buttons add an eye-catching twist. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

Don't Forget the Boxes and Bows

Gift wrap is always an easy and inexpensive way to coordinate the look and theme of your holiday decor.

Table Setting

Amethyst linens and goblets mixed with silver and gold make for a regal and festive place setting.

Soft Stockings

Hung with care, purple velvet stockings await the arrival of Santa.

Far Out Frames

Here is another fun craft project for the kids. Picture frames are decorated in a purple chevron pattern. To really give the frames a vintage 1970s look, fill them with photos of Dad in his leisure suit or Mom in her go-go boots.
