After the excitement of Christmas World it’s always fun to consider the new trends. What will appear on the Christmas tree this year? Which colours and themes will translate to the high street stores and which fantasy themes will stay just that!
There are always clear winners and I’ll bring you a sneak preview of what you can expect this Christmas, that means there’s a lot to cover so much so that I’m going to feature several posts in the run up to Christmas but to get you in the mood here’s an overview from Christmas World 2020.
For lovers of pink you won’t be disappointed, this year there’s a move away from pastel shades to a dusky pink that’s moody and seductive. A new level of sophistication that works just as well with red, burgundy and purple. Look out for this colour in floristry, baubles and ribbon.
And, you’ll be seeing stars in all sizes and textures. Paper origami stars were the most popular and came in a wide range of colours with or without illumination. Large fabric stars looked stunning hung from the ceiling or over a table setting. They’re light and colourful and really fill a space making them perfect for decorating the shop window or a larger venue, this year they’ll be plenty of colour choice.
As always artificial floristry is a major trend at Christmas World. With so many specialist retailers we were spoilt for choice. A lightness is more in evidence this year with clouds of dyed gypsophilia and sprays of pampas grass still popular and there was a spotlight on individual flowers and sprays displayed in glass bottles and vases.
Well that’s a snapshot of some of my favourite moments but you can follow me on Instagram and Pinterest to see more micro trends from Christmas World in the next few months.
