I decided to do something slightly different with our tree this year, and instead of just doing a random color explosion all over the place, I chose three colors and placed them in a spiral-like pattern, keeping all like colors together. Since I had purple, hot pink and blue mesh, those are the three colors I went with. I really really love the way it turned out. It's a bit unconventional, but that's ok by me. I am also fully aware that my tree skirt does not match AT ALL, but it's the only one I have and those things aren't cheap. So I plan to buy a new one after Christmas for next year at a discount.
