Decorating for Christmas, winter is fun, exciting time
It’s beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas. Decorating our homes for Christmas and the winter is always a fun and exciting time of the year. This year’s trends in Christmas decorating offer some exciting options for decorating for the whole winter season, not just the 25 days before Christmas. Plaid is hot this season! Any color and any style of plaid will add a warm feel to your home. Along with plaid, any motif that features deer, arrows, antlers, and feathers are extremely popular home decorating trends. From Christmas tree ornaments to wall décor this trend can easily convert to winter. By using these motifs with evergreen and pinecones, you can carry this trend through the month of January and February very easily. Another trend this Christmas is metallic. Colors of gold, copper and silver are festive throughout the Christmas season and can easily be transitioned into the New Year. Natural arrangements in silver and copper vessels add glimmer when paired with candlelight. Organic materials, such as wood and glass, with gold highlights add a beautiful elegance to the season. The newest trend we are seeing in home decorating is concrete. The gray tones highlight many home décor colors that are popular at present. This trend promises to be bigger in 2016. One of our cutest concrete ornaments is the popular truck with a Christmas tree. Small concrete tea lights and owls would make perfect place setting favors at your Christmas table. Affordably priced between $5.00 - $10.00, these concrete elements would also make great Dirty Santa or exchange gifts. Let us help make your holidays festive and easy. Don’t forget, we offer free gift wrapping. Merison’s is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
