Decorate With Nostalgic Accents 

Trends come and go, and many old Christmas trends have made their way back this year. This year you can find several different nods to the holiday decor of yesteryears, such as ceramic Christmas trees, tinsel-strewed trees, Christmas villages, vintage Santa statues, and nutcrackers.  

Nature-Inspired Decor 

In a time of reuse, repurposing, and recycling it is no surprise that creating items found outside is trending this year. Instead of using faux greenery, many are in favor is using forested foliage and a real Christmas tree. Integrate pine cones, acorns, dried berries, and twigs into DIY garlands, wreaths, and ornaments. Also, use the same resources to decorate your Christmas dinner table for an organic setting. 

Cozy Decor

To match this vibe, matching family Christmas PJs are really big this year too. 

Don’t Forget the Mantle

Mantle decorations have been a long-time focus when decorating for Christmas. It is after the fireplace Santa makes his entrance. This year’s trends include greenery or garland made from 

materials such as felt balls, pom poms, wood beads, or yarn. Drape decor across the mantle and different shapes and heights to create an asymmetrical design.

You can add a wreath or Christmas painting above the mantle to create a focal point and tie everything together. Put a rug in front of the fireplace with a throw pillow to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Subtle Christmas Touches
