Christmas 2021 is around the corner and omg, are we excited! After going through a global pandemic and the very toned-down holiday season that was 2020, we are eager to spend the holidays with our loved ones —and perhaps (gasp!) even throw a holiday party to make up for lost time. This year, we think there’s a good possibility that people are going to want to go BIG on decking the halls, bake up a storm, and add more decorations to the holiday stash.
Retail Week’s industry report, The Christmas Forecast, is predicting that people will spend more this year than 2020. But, even with a projected increase in spending, everyone’s looking for a DEAL, right? Well you're in luck because we have a whole slew of budget-friendly buys to add to your indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations. Plus, we want to tell you about a few awesome year round Christmas decoration stores to buy holiday goods all year long!
But first, we want to highlight some Christmas 2021 Trends AND give you tips on how to amp up your holiday decor so you can have the most festive house on the block.
Christmas 2021 trends
It appears the search algorithms have spoken and we already know of some holiday trends coming down the pike. Here are the Christmas 2021 design trends we are seeing this year when it comes to Christmas trees, color schemes and decorations, according to our research.
Christmas trees are of course a staple in a home that celebrates the holiday and there's many styles to choose from both real and artificial.
- If you want a more traditional look, many choose the Nordmann Fir because of its even shape and sparse branches. The Fraser Fir tree is also gaining in popularity because its full body and wide branches provide ample room for elaborate decorations.
- In case you didn’t know, Balsam Hill is the top retailer for artificial trees and garlands. Or, our Joiedomi brand artificial pull up tree is a fantastic choice if you want hassle-free set up and take down.
- Of course we LOVE a fresh live tree as well, and home improvement stores like Home Depot typically have a wide variety to choose from. Prices start around $30 and go up from there depending on the size.
Ok, so now that we have trees covered, here's more Christmas decor trends popping up this season
- Crafty DIY Christmas decorations and the use of recyclable materials are becoming more prominent as people become conscious of excess waste. Check out this eco-friendly wrapping trend we just love!
- Betcha didn’t think there are other Christmas color choices besides the usual, red, green, gold and silver? Well according to Google, searches for “farmhouse Christmas ideas” is up 400% over the last five years. “Farmhouse Neutral” colors (think white, black, navy, and natural wood tones) are decidedly in this season --with people swapping out the traditional for a more muted, subdued look. Also, purples and jewel tones are on trend.
- Finally, anything retro nostalgia is making big waves with holiday decor in 2021. Think vintage-style ceramic Christmas trees, (fyi there are over 13,000 posts tagged #ceramicchristmastrees … who knew?!) wooden ornaments, and Grandma’s holiday linens all provide that soul-soothing holiday comfort.
