Apparently, Christmas trends follow fashion trends when it comes to decoration. So there is no surprise to see Christmas trees in the dark blue, red, gold, green, brown, pink, and in the colours from the Fall Winter 2021 Colour Pallete this year. I guess our Christmas tree could enter the new year dressed even more fashionable than we.

We just pair them differently. The Christmas trendsetters have pushed the boundaries of Christmas decorating high this year.

MORE DECORATING TRENDS FOR CHRISTMAS 2021

Now, as promised, answers to all Christmas decorating questions you have this year. Including whether you should get a real or fake Christmas tree.

What is new about 2021 Christmas decorating?

Pretty much everything! There are new Christmas themes and new Christmas decorations.

What is the biggest Christmas 2021 decor trend?

The biggest 2021 Christmas trend is the sparkling tree. No matter what Christmas 2021 decor theme you pick, make sure to coat your tree with glitter and sparkles. More is more for 2021!

Are DIY Christmas ornaments fashionable in 2021?

Not as much as the last year since everyone is busy. But if you have time, you can DIY Christmas ornaments for 2021. Just be sure to pick a fashionable Christmas theme before you start making the ornaments by yourself.

What should 2021 Christmas tree be like for Christmas 2021?

There’s no doubt about what type of Christmas tree you should get if you want your home to look chic and elegant this year. If you want a fashionable Christmas tree, go to the greenhouse and get a natural Christmas tree.
Ps. Don’t worry about chopping the trees out of the woods. You can get a tree, borrow actually, that was planted in a pot, and return it back after the holiday season. Moreover, even if you can’t borrow a tree or buy a tree that was planted and grown just to become a Christmas tree one day, you should get a real, natural, real pine anyway. Chopping a pine does less harm to the planet than an artificial, fake Christmas tree made of PVC, steel and polyurethane foam by children somewhere in China.

What colour should be Christmas tree in 2021?

Your 2021 Christmas tree should be either green or dark blue. Green Christmas trees sprayed with fake snow or glitter dust are fashionable for 2021, too.

What to put on the Christmas tree in 2021?

Well, you can have it all but tinsel. Tinsel is downmarket.

What decoration should you use for your Christmas tree to make it look fashionable?

It depends on the Christmas theme you decide to go for.

Should you decorate your Christmas tree with baubles, different ornaments, garlands or just lights?

You can decorate your Christmas tree with baubles and different ornaments. Just make sure you stick to one Christmas theme.

Is it fashionable to decorate a Christmas tree with glass baubles, vintage decorations or plastic Christmas decor?

It’s time to finally toss all that old plastic baubles and tinsel, and go to your Grandma’s attic and look for her old wooden and glass Christmas ornaments. Glass Christmas ornaments are far more fashionable than plastic ones for Christmas 2021.
Well, if the Nutcracker turned into the prince already. Or if you found all that fragile family Christmas ornaments in pieces, you can always purchase the Christmas decor I linked for you in this article.
Ps. If you don’t want to splurge on new Christmas ornaments, simply coat your old ornaments with sparkles or glue some sparkles on the baubles. As told, glitter Christmas ornaments are on-trend for Christmas 2021.

Are food tree ornaments still in fashion for Christmas 2021?

Yes, food Christmas tree ornaments are still on trend. Food Christmas ornaments like ice cream sandwich glass ornament, a box of doughnuts glass ornament, or Movie Popcorn glass ornament are in style with the Luxe City Christmas theme 2021.

What to put on the top of the Christmas tree in 2021?

A star, a crown, an angel or feathers. But you can also leave the top empty.

THE MOST FASHIONABLE 2021 CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

There so much decorating left once you decorate your Christmas tree. Here are some Christmas decorating tips that should help a lot.

FASHIONABLE CHRISTMAS TABLE DECORATION

There’s actually only one rule when it comes to the table decoration this year: less decor, more food. Don’t overload your table with candles, flowers, wreaths or any other kitschy decorations and colourful tablecloths. If you must, then decorate with one central piece that is low enough so everyone at the table can see across the table. Ps. Make sure you put a natural centrepiece on your table.

Also, don’t forget about the Christmas crackers to brighten the dinner table with a traditional joke.

PILLOWS, FURNITURE AND OTHER HOME DECORATION

Decorating home for holidays doesn’t stop only at the Christmas tree and wreath. Be sure all of your home decorations match the Christmas theme you picked when you were decorating the Christmas tree.

CHRISTMAS PILLOWS AND HOME DECORATION YOUR HOME NEEDS

OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS DECORATION

Even though more is really more for Christmas 2021, plastic kitschy, plastic Santas climbing onto your balcony and lights shaped in animals in front of your house will downgrade your home.

Instead, go for elegant and acceptable outdoor Christmas decorations like simple and small white, copper or rose gold lights. Note, they should look magical. And you can put them on a tree in front of your house.

THESE PRETTY CHRISTMAS LIGHTS WILL BRING MAGIC TO YOUR HOUSE

CHRISTMAS WREATH

Finally, the Christmas wreath for your front door. The Christmas wreath should always be real and follow the theme from inside of the house.
