Consider adding two or three oversized ornaments or embellishments to your Christmas tree. This is the best way to pull together a color scheme and play with pattern mixing. Designer Britany Simon created these black, white and red poinsettias from solid-colored felt and patterned cottons. Once added to the tree, they become the first thing guests notice then help draw the eye around the room to other coordinating design elements.
