Pinks, purples, golds, whites, and blues are increasingly upstaging the traditional colors. In some homes, red and green Christmas stockings—family heirlooms—are bowing to wheat-colored ones. Even poinsettias are losing ground to the new flower of choice, the white tulip. And purple-colored giftwrap is now a favorite.
