At Shutterfly, we know silver and gold decorations are a common metallic theme for the holidays, so if you want to stand out, try something different like pewter. Unlike silver, pewter is a grey color without too much shine and creates a wonderfully subdued look. Our pewter ornaments have a matte finish that goes well with any color. Here are some tips to use this great metallic tone.
Pewter makes red really pop because it will not need to compete with other bright colors like green and blue. When you add white snowflake ornaments to the mix, then your red accents and decorations can really shine.
When you pair pewter ornaments with dark blue, you create a cold, winter atmosphere. This can be a great way to beat the heat if you live in a warm area that doesn't experience snow during the holidays. Use some personalized blue candles to stick with the chilly winter theme.
Green goes great with everything, and it is a good thing since your holiday tree will most likely be green. Using pewter ornaments and decorations on your deep evergreen centerpiece can highlight the natural aspect of bringing a tree into your home. This holds true even if you have chosen a synthetic tree due to allergies or other reasons.
Pewter even matches with non-traditional colors. Get a white or frosted tree and deck it out with pewter, lavender and pink to create a bubbly look that pairs well with a cocktail party. Serve your holiday favorites in some personalized glassware to make the season even merrier.
To create a dark and cozy atmosphere, we recommend using burgundy and orange with your pewter ornaments. A dark holiday atmosphere has a classic feel which you can bring out more by using sienna or black-and-white photographs.
Some gift ideas that use the metallic theme to great effect include jewelry, flasks and pet tags. Look through our attention-getting stocking stuffers for even more ideas.
