Default 2017 Christmas colors

Is it me? I feel like I am seeing a lot of aqua, purple and pink in Christmas cards this year? Are these the "alternate" colors for 2017?

We usually have a light blue in the traditional arsenal but this is a different shade...

I am not complaining, just observing.

Christmas color trends are so interesting to me! I was looking at a balsam Hill catalog yesterday and they have the most beautiful decorated tree in turquoise, deep blue, and a coppery rust brown - it's stunning. https://www.balsamhill.com/p/georgetown-ornament-set



I'm completely distracted now... there are some beautiful color combos here:

Are these the shades you've seen? I had to check the catalog for myself, aren't these beautiful? I love this! Called Coastal Elegance.

This is EXACTLY what I did to my tree last year. After having red and gold for 13 years I was ready for a change. I have many trees, traditional, old world, baking/cooking, all Santa and woodland. But my formal one in the living room had been red and gold. Last year I changed it to the turquoise, copper, teal and bronze. I love it!
