Christmas decor trends for 2023
With autumn well and truly underway, many of us are already thinking about making preparations for Christmas. It makes sense to start early. Spreading the cost of the festive season early can help to get organised and manage money better so that there aren’t a lot of things to pay off in January.
If you’re thinking ahead to how your home will look this Christmas season, read on. Here, we round up the Christmas decor trends for 2023.
After the events of the last two years, where a lot of UK consumers don’t have as much cash to spend as before, many people are finding ways to save over this festive period. One way is to try DIY decorations.
If you’re feeling crafty, there are plenty of creations that you can come up with. Plus, if you do this with family and friends, it could become a fun way to spend some time together. Why not try your hand at making your own centrepieces or wreaths?
Colour trend: icy blues and silver
Blue fairy lights and decorations are making a comeback in 2023, but this time they’re complemented by silver tones to create a cool, wintry grotto effect. Adorn your tree with sparkling silvery snowflakes and deep blue baubles then head outside to add a cool blue effect of icicle lights draped from railings and around trees.
Barbie has broken box-office records and into the hearts of many cinema lovers this year. If you want to embrace the pink tones made popular by this blockbuster of a movie, Christmas is the perfect excuse to do just that!
You could indulge in soft pastels that add an elegant blush to your home or go all-out with a vibrant neon pink tree. You might want to nod to the Barbie trend with some baubles or throw pink glitter at your table. There’s sure to be a shade to suit your aesthetic.
Why not throw tradition out this Christmas and try something different? To enjoy an alternative look, swap out the typical tree. Usually, we choose between artificial trees and the real deal but there are so many options out there, from wooden trees to metal designs that can hang on the wall.
It can always help to get inspiration from other sources, for example, try investigating alternative options by researching product reviews on social media or relevant forums.
And wreaths are always a lovely addition. But while the evergreens and poinsettia are a beautiful touch, there are alternative designs that range from chic to kitsch.
There are beautiful wreaths adorned with little silver bells and wacky ones festooned with retro baubles and vintage toys such as nutcrackers and robins. Take your pick and find one that works seamlessly in your home.
