I chose to use the traditional Valentine color combination of mixed reds, a pink and white in a not-quite-so-traditional striping pattern. . .
It’s easily deciphered. Reading right to left in the photo below:
2 Red, then 1 White /2 Pink /1 White, followed by 2 Red/2 White/2 Pink, and repeat.
This 3-color striping pattern could easily be converted to a Mardi Gras (purple/green/gold), St. Patrick’s Day (green/gold/white), Easter (maybe purple/yellow/white?), Independence Day (red/white/blue), Halloween (orange/yellow/white), Thanksgiving (brown/rust/tan) or Christmas (red/green/white) Ripple! I’m sure you can add many other special occasions to this list, each with their own fun color combo.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
