Christmas is just around the corner and this means that if you have not begun yet, you must definitely start thinking about this year’s decorations. Whether you are in a competition with your neighbours or you are just keen on the holiday and want to show this to everyone through your Christmas ornaments, bringing the spirit to your house is mandatory! Each year, dedicated stores propose a wide array of decorations and the offer is so diverse that you may feel overwhelmed. You may feel tempted to use last year’s arsenal, but for a fresh result, here are three of the main trends of 2017, in terms of Christmas embellishments:
Even if during this time of the year, stores are stuffed with decorations and themed figurines, it seems that it is quite trendy to create your own ornaments. These will be not only original, but also impressive, as they are made by your own hands. So stock up with ribbon, glitter, card board, coloured paper, glue and markers, start watching tutorials and get to work. Moreover, do not forget about the curling ribbon
that will make your adornments and presents even more festive! Purchase printed fabrics in specific hues (such as red, gold, blue or silver) and you will definitely get the most beautiful ornaments.
This may sound mainstream, but it is actually am all-time rule you need to follow. It is true that Christmas is about vivid colours and shine, but you do not want your house or tree to look tacky. For this reason, you must do before actually buying decorations is choosing the main palette. Unlike previous years, this year’s favourites seem to be hues that would normally be considered unusual: pink or rose gold, turquoise or sparkling green. If you want to embrace the trend but not leave the traditional side, a combination like pink and silver will make your house and tree décor look amazing!
Decorations as varied as possible
If you want your ornaments to create a complete landscape, then you must vary! This means that the tree does not have to be decorated only with globes and the traditional centrepieces are no longer enough for the festive table. When buying or making ornaments, try to vary as much as possible. Get 10 spherical globes, and just as many ribbons, stars, figurines and so on. Implement the “unity in diversity” motto and you will get the perfect results. However, remember to stick to the same colour palette, to avoid a messy effect.
