Your Favorite Color

Color scheme: Your favorite color, a color next to it on the color wheel, and an optional neutral
Lights: White or a single color

How to: What's your favorite color? Search for ornaments and other lightweight decor in that color family and use it on your tree. A monochromatic tree makes a bold, beautiful statement.
