Be ahead of the game when preparing for this upcoming holiday season! Check out these holiday decor trends for 2022 to try before you start shopping. 

This holiday season is about making the most of what you have. You might have a tighter budget to work with this year. Giving gifts is nice, but nothing is nicer than gathering with your family and loved ones. Memories last longer than gifts, anyway! 

As you read through the trends below, feel free to incorporate them if you love them, can afford them, and if they work for your family. Decorate and plan gatherings based on what works for you and your family, regardless of whatever is trending. 

1- Tableware

Make your home center stage by hosting dinner parties to create a sensory experience. As a conversation starter, go through your old bins and pull out some vintage decor items to decorate the table. You can add a dash of sparkle with some unique serving ware, drinking vessels, and table linens. 

Candles add to the ambiance of any table setting. Use candlestick holders to showcase unique colors and designs as the glow of the light illuminates your guests and meal. 

2- Nature themes

Bring the outside in by adding dried flowers, pinecones, leaves, and other natural motifs to your decor. This year, woodland decor is a popular trend with designs that include mushrooms, animals, and warm, natural colors. When you decorate, incorporate rustic hues inspired by your natural surroundings, such as bark, pine needles, and rustic oranges. 

You can even gather dried oranges, wheat, and found branches to incorporate into your home. These different textures are sure to create a cozy look and feel. 

3- Vintage

Think retro kitchenware, Arts and Crafts decor, old China, and other heirloom pieces. Get creative with how you collect these items, either by buying them second-hand or asking your relatives and grandparents to bring their unique homeware. 

4- Sustainability

As you shop for trendy holiday decor items this year, consider the environmental impact of the product you purchase. Consider things made of recycled or long-lasting materials so you won’t need to throw anything away. Get creative and use old cardboard boxes and worn out fabric for wrapping. 

You can also look for items with multiple uses to use them beyond the holidays. Multi-use items can include vases, candle holders, and accent pillows with patterns that are still relevant beyond the holiday season. Selecting these types of products ensures you can use them as long as possible. 

5- Jewel shades

Add some jewel shades by incorporating them in ornaments, ribbons, wrapping paper, garlands, and more. Magenta and emerald are especially making waves in recent trend reports. 

6- Handmade

Nothing beats a handmade gift. The amount of thought and effort it takes to create something from your own hands creates rich meaning for the receiver. Making something can be as easy or complicated as you want it to be, but even something simple such as a mason jar with a pancake mix can be special. If you’re looking for inspiration on what to make, check out this gift guide from Good Housekeeping.
