One of the trends for Christmas 2019 is getting back to nature. While red, gold, silver, and green will always be a part of Christmas décor, this year the muted hues of the forest bring a touch of the outside indoors. When decorating your home for the holidays this year, incorporate some of the beauty of nature along with the bling of Christmas holiday décor and ornaments. Here are some ideas for sprucing up your house for the end of the year festivities:
Bring the outdoors inside with some adorable snowmen. There’s nothing that says it’s Christmas quite like a snowman, even if you live in a warmer climate. There are so many ways to bring Frosty into the picture, from snowman ornaments to cookie plates, greeting cards to night lights, garden flags to figurines, tea light holders to shelf sitters…the list is endless! And although you might end up making an actual snowman from snow in your front yard, we’ve got a snowball fun set that will let you have a snowball fight indoors! The best thing about this game? These little cuties will provide some fun and become part of your seasonal home decor without leaving a sloppy wet mess for you to clean.
Add real foliage to your decorations. Instead of just stringing lights along the mantle, add some pinecones of varying sizes to create a natural aesthetic. Break out the hot glue gun and add a pop of color with real or plastic red holly berries and dark green leaves.
Hang that mistletoe! Who needs an excuse to hang some fresh mistletoe where your friends and family least expect it? If anyone objects, you can tell them you’re just keeping up with the latest “outdoors inside” trend!
Ah, nuts! Chestnuts don’t have to be roasting on an open fire to become part of your Christmas décor. Place a few loose chestnuts along the mantle among your pinecones and holly berries or put a few small bowls of chestnuts and other nuts still in their shells on your table or a side table to double as both home décor and a healthy snack.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Fresh greenery adds a wonderful look and aroma to your home when you decorate mantles, doorways, even staircase bannisters with it. Your home will both look and smell wonderfully festive with this element of nature as part of your Christmas décor.
No matter if you follow the trends or start your own this year, we wish you the happiest of holidays!
