Design Trends to Consider for Your Holiday Events

Design Trends to Consider for Your Holiday Events

Combining a little shine and sparkle with the right color scheme can help put guests in high spirits at your events this holiday season. From festive green to classic shades of silver, there’s plenty you can do to give your space a sense of coziness and warmth.

Go Green

Long associated with holiday trees, wreaths, and garlands, green is a foundational color for the season. You can’t go wrong with shades of green when it comes to holiday furnishings and ornaments, from deep forest to moss and chartreuse. Try layering different hues of green on a cafe table and across lounge areas for a restorative palette, and double down on faux greenery beyond holiday trees. Planning a tropical holiday party? Surprise guests with palm trees wrapped in colorful holiday string lights for a one-of-a-kind experience!

Shine with Many Shades

Golden ornaments and elements will always be important for holiday décor, but the shine can come from many different colors. Shades of green, blue, red or silver metallic pieces work with nearly any design and can be used inside tables, tabletops, pillows, Marche ottomans and ornaments for added glamour. For a special touch, reflect the holiday colors and festive décor back to your guests with a Mirrored Wet Bar.

Make it Personal

While the holidays are full of timeless trends and traditions, your event space should still be uniquely personal. Make a statement by adding personalized holiday graphics to a Posh Bar Table, which allows you to tailor the party theme and reinforce your own color story.

The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to explore new color trends and event design elements, so challenge yourself to experiment with furnishings and décor! And don’t forget to add a sprig of mistletoe for a holiday-inspired final touch.
