Silver and gold are standards among Christmas decorations and pair easily with the more chromatic colors often used, like red, green and blue. Metallic colors are so much more versatile than that, so why not try pairing your silver and gold decorations with some non-standard colors. You can even incorporate these colors in your shiny, foil Christmas cards.
For a Christmas look that is very modern and elegant, try pairing your silver decorations with some pastels. Silver with pale yellow and baby blue evokes the feeling of the Spring that is so far away, while silver with light purple and pink can be girly and inviting. Choose any pastels you like and cover your home in soft light to complete this look.
Pairing gold items with brown can give an antique look to your Christmas decorations. You can also keep some of your brown autumn decorations out and make them more wintery with a touch of gold. Find yourself some battery powered LED Christmas lights and use them to backlight your decorations for even more pop.
For an older, classic look, keep everything black and white with just a hint of metallic color here and there. Synthetic Christmas trees can be found in a variety of colors, so you could get a white one and hang some personalized black Christmas ornaments. Finally, top it all off with an elaborate black tree-topper that's either a classic star or something more unique.

After you have chosen your Christmas cards, don't forget some thank you notes, stamps and address labels.
