Christmas trends 2015: Three decorations set to be everywhere


The Christmas, holiday season is here. You can’t avoid it so you might as well embrace it! Already items are popping up in stores making us think about how we’ll set a festive scene ahead of December 25th.

So, what decorations will be big this year? These three are set to pop up everywhere…

The Peacock
Peacocks are for Christmas what flamingos were for Summer – that kitsch and playful element incorporating colour and novelty. John Lewis and Liberty are some of the big retail names backing this trend, offering customers not only peacock-shaped ornaments but also baubles decorated with feathers or patterns plus colours inspired by this beautiful bird.

Encased Nature
Natural elements such as leaves and birds are set to become little treasures, safely guarded within glass baubles. It’s yet another way of bringing the outside in, Christmas-style. Some ornaments even have fake snow to make miniature scenery even more whimsical.

Decorative Words
Using words and sentences – especially inspiring quotes – will be bigger than ever. From mugs to cushions and wall art, written word Christmas and winter-themed decorations are a significant trend. In addition, prints featuring playful puns and messages for Santa take it beyond tree ornaments.
