  • LOL, No. (seems anal but something I'd be prone to doing). I do match each child's paper color so it's easier to sort them out later.

  • Our ornaments are eclectic and collected over the years, many homemade....the paper and bows are eclectic also.....It's more of a family effort rather than a work of art, but so much fun...

  • We use allot of home made or hand me down decorations on our tree, no set color. As for wrapping paper I love seeing so many colors under the tree, I usually needa ton of paper, and mix it up color wise.

  • I try to match all the wrapping paper for the year or try to stick to one theme. Like all candy themed, or stripes, or one color theme paper. the tree I try to do a different theme every year. Not sure what theme we will do this year. I'm thinking bronze and orange this year, gotta go shopping and see what's available.

  • No, I'd rather make the colors much different so that they really pop and stand out. I love real trees and I'm not a fan of colored trees at all and I love foil paper, usually solid with different color bows. I'll do blue foil with a silver ribbon and silver foil with blue ribbon and red and gold are my favorites. My Christmas tree is usually white lights with blue and silver bulbs.

  • I have wondered if other people do that or not. I don't. I just buy the papers that I like.
