What colour schemes did everyone do this year?

I saw this fabulous display at a garden shop that used rich winter whites and cocoa and chocolate colours, and that inspired me..... except in all my ornaments I had no cocoa and chocolate (so used those for my cards....if you guessed I used Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip, you win the prize). My teenage daughter grasped on to the idea of all white (but she didn't want any silver) . . . then we pulled all our assorted decorations out and discovered we didn't have enough white, so we made it red and white. And it's lovely.

Last year we did purple, and the year before was blue. I've collected ornaments for almost 30 years, plus I have my parents' vintage ornaments from the 50s and 60s. And lots come from Ikea. So we have lots and lots to choose from . . .some gorgeous ones, some cheap ones, and can't use them all in any one year.
