Most people think of red and green for the holidays, but another great seasonal hue is orange. Orange is uplifting, optimistic and rejuvenating to the spirit. It offers emotional strength in difficult times and encourages spontaneity and a positive outlook. Its life-affirming properties make it a great choice for the holidays. Sending loved ones orange holiday cards is like mailing them a boost of energy and strength, and it also ensures that your card will stand out from the rest.
The color orange stimulates social communication and encourages lively conversations, making it a perfect choice for decorative touches to your holiday home. Orange also fuels the appetite, and restaurants often use softer versions of this hue such as apricot and peach to encourage guests to linger. If you enjoy having guests in and around your kitchen, add various shades of orange, including terra cotta, to motivate lively verbal exchanges and encourage good spirits and hearty appetites.
Orange also makes the perfect holiday hue because it helps us take in new ideas and it encourages us to free our spirits from previous limitations. It inspires self-respect as well as regard for other people. If you don’t have time to repaint your walls in soft peach hues before your holiday get-together, don’t worry. Adding touches of orange is actually easy and inexpensive. You may not need to go further than your cupboard.
Besides being delicious and healthy, oranges are great to have around during the holidays. They smell wonderful and look delightful piled in bowls around your house. They also can be decorated with cloves to make pomanders, which are beloved both for their beauty and their delectable aromas.
Orange is widely underappreciated as a color, even though it has such positive properties. There are many hues of orange, including softer tones like peach and apricot, plus the deeper shade of terra cotta. This makes it easy to incorporate optimistic orange into your home to welcome holiday guests and encourage you and your family all year long.
"Too late for Christmas cards this, year, so we went with a "happy new year" theme and this was a great choice. Cheered it up a bit by changing the main greeting from blue to yellow. Photo reproduction on the printed version faithfully matched the online version. Nice work, Tiny Prints!"
"As a family with 4 different last names, being able to customize the bottom text was awesome. Everything including the picture quality was exactly as the preview depicted. The paper was nice and thick, and looked great. Since we dropped the ball on the traditional holiday card, we chose this card as we ended up sending it out at the end of January (oops!). We also utilized the option for Tiny Prints to send the cards for us by uploading our addresses and it was so easy and perfect! Definitely a massive time saver!!"
