Christmas is a favourite time of year for many. We look forward to everything from the food, to the family gatherings, and festivities - and not to mention the beautiful decorations that you simply can't miss. Every year, there are different Christmas decor trends, and we've gathered a few of the new styles here for those looking to change things up for the holiday season. Will you be adopting any of these into your seasonal decor?
Christmas Decor Lighting
The lighting we see around the holiday season is usually very spirited and warm. The possibilities are always expanding, with more and more options for creating unique decorations and displays using lighting. Christmas 2021 seems to be a year of embracing a vintage and retro-style of lighting and Christmas decor. Your Christmas lighting has the opportunity to bring joy to everyone - not only those who you invite into your home but also those who drive by and see your beautiful displays!
DIY Christmas Decor
In 2021, we're seeing more and more interest going into the idea of do-it-yourself (DIY) decor. We're projecting decor trends using real and natural looking materials like wood and wool. Whether you're making this decor yourself or finding a place like NOEL by Alma Home to purchase from, you are able to show your guests a reflection of you through the decorations that you love. Additionally, if you're choosing to make your Christmas decor yourself, it can be a great time to get together with friends and family and have a fun night of gathering, crafting, and having a merry ole' time!
Of course, we know the classic Christmas colours of red, green, and white. But there are some other colour trends we predict will be a big part of Christmas 2021. Neutral tones like black and cream with pops of bright colours and geometric patterns are likely to be very popular among decor themes, with soft, natural materials appearing often in Christmas decor.
Putting aesthetics aside for a second, people are also becoming more thoughtful about sustainability, sourcing Christmas decor and other holiday cheer made from sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. This trend will also have an effect on your colour palette and will result in more neutral tones with a unique boho look.
We’re also seeing some trends related to Christmas gifts. The number one trend for Christmas 2021 is going to be focused on experiential gifting. Many will be looking to make up for last Christmas, when they were unable to celebrate the way they normally would have. People are realizing the importance of experiences and spending time with the people they love. For this reason, we're likely going to see a lot of experience-based gifts under the tree this year.
Additionally, following last year’s trend, people will be eager to support local and small businesses. We believe this will continue this year as the pandemic lingers on and many businesses are still having trouble staying afloat.
