With Christmas just a week away, here are a few last minute decor ideas as you finish up your holiday shopping and decorating. And why not bring in new color trends that can carry you into 2018.
Do you have worn and shabby looking decorations you drag out each year? Maybe it’s time to do something new and fresh. Try incorporating other colors into your holiday décor. Think blue, purple or green.
Try introducing new metals as well, like copper, platinum and brass. Add swags of ribbon to your Christmas tree in creams and silvers tones to bring a luxurious feel to your Christmas scene. You can also use a neutral, soft blanket for a last minute tree skirt.
If you’re fortunate enough to have vintage ornaments, try featuring them on a small tree or branch by themselves.
SIMPLIFY ~ BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Simple, yet classic decorations can still convey a warm and inviting home. Fill up your glass jars and vases with extra ornaments or fragrant pinecones and pine leaves to bring the outdoors in. Mason jars make quick candle holders with beautiful holiday ribbon tied around the center.
BRING ON THE PURPLE!
Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. This is a strong color and people either love it or not. If you are a lover of purple, you may like this decorating idea and can start bringing this color into your home during this holiday season.
Take advantage of the post-holiday sales this year and scoop up a few new items to add to your holiday decor for next season. Keep those special treasures and consider donating gently used decorations to Goodwill or Arc to clear out your storage spaces and minimize clutter.
