What themes are on trend for Christmas 2021

10th July 2021

Your personal Christmas decorating style will determine whether you follow the trending Christmas themes. If you are someone who has been putting up the same decorations for the last 20 years, the chances are you aren't bothered what the Christmas themes for 2021 are (or maybe it is time for a change?). But, if you are someone who adds to their Christmas ornaments collection each year or actively follows the trending themes, keep reading.

When researching what themes are on trend for Christmas 2021 it was very obvious that each theme is referred to by a variety of names, depending upon the wholesaler, reseller, designer or journalist describing and selling them. So, for the purposes of this blog, there are a whopping 15 Christmas themes and within each, we've listed the variety of names they are marketed with as some of them are really fun and will hopefully evoke inspiration for your own decorating this year.

Were there any themes you haven't seen before? Leopard and Feather Filled are a new ones for me! Also, I hadn't considered carnivals and circus as Christmas themes before.

Will you be adding any new themes this year? I'm adding two new themes: Gingerbread and Christmas Candy. I'm super excited about them, its only July, but I can't wait to start decorating.

And, looking forward to next year, yes, Christmas 2022, I fancy adding a new theme in our home bar room: Cocktails at the Kringles. I think that sounds great fun and will certainly complement the room.

If you are feeling inspired for Christmas decorating now, take a look at our Christmas Shop where we are taking pre-orders for the exquisite ornaments by RAZ Imports, Goodwill and Theatre Imports. These are the types of ornaments that you can invest in or gradually add into your existing collection and enjoy for years to come before eventually handing them down as heirlooms for the next generation to cherish. Numbers are limited, so pre-order now to ensure you don't miss out. Christmas decorations will be delivered from September to November.

I would love to know your thoughts on the above. Let me know in the comments below.
