Christmas Tree Trends 2021: The Top Colors and Decorations to Use

 

Discover the latest ways to trim your tree, including playful pastels, modern metallics, and natural Nordic. Which Christmas tree trend and color scheme will you choose this year?

Decorating the Christmas tree is a favorite holiday activity. Maybe this year, you want to shake up your festive style but need some inspiration. Perhaps you’re longing to update your tree but can’t justify buying new ornaments. The Christmas tree trends for 2021 feature unexpected styles alongside imaginative ways to use your existing decorations. Take a peek at the top trends below!  

Pastel Whimsy

Sugary shades and vintage designs characterize this tree trend. Done right, it’s a grown-up look that sparks joyful memories of childhood Christmases. Start with a faux frosted tree then layer pastel-colored bows with shimmering, retro ornaments and twinkling lights. This pretty look will make Christmas magical!

All That Glitters

Break the style rules and mix gold and silver together on your tree, adding a sprinkling of glitter for good measure. Keep the look chic with simple metallic balls and warm, glowing string lights. This is the contemporary way to do festive glamour and a real show-stopper look.

Scandi Simplicity

Texture is key to making this minimalist style feel cozy and inviting. A real tree will invite the wonderful scent of Christmas into your home; trim it with balls in natural materials and muted colors. A rattan tree skirt will look charming, while warm-toned lights will create atmosphere. You’ll have your very own indoor winter wonderland. 

Natural and Sustainable

Have yourself an eco-friendly Christmas, by decorating with sustainable materials and upcycling your existing decorations. Craft festive paper chains from old gift wrap or make a popcorn garland. Revamp your ornaments with a lick of paint to save buying new ones. Gather twigs from your garden to make hanging stars. It’s easy to have a green Christmas!

American Beer Day is a Great Excuse to Buy More Epic Bar Decor

 

Did you know there was a fun holiday in honor of beer? American Beer Day is observed by lager lovers on October 27 each year – although we wouldn’t recommend asking your boss for the day off to celebrate! Instead, you could do other beer-related activities and of course, spruce up your home bar with some new decor.

A Brief History of Beer

You may think that beer came to the States with the first European colonists. But historical records indicate that Native Americans were brewing beer long before then. By the 17th century, English and Dutch settlers started producing their own brews for locals.

It wasn’t until the late 19th century that mass production of beer began. One notable brewing company, D.G. Yuengling & Son, was founded in 1829 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. It’s still producing beer today, making it the oldest operating brewing company in America. Now that’s an achievement worth drinking to!

The Beer Industry Today

The American beer industry has experienced rapid growth in recent years. Alongside major brewing companies there are countless microbreweries and craft breweries producing unique, artisanal beer. Home brewing is growing in popularity too. If you decide to try your hand at home brewing, you’ll be in good company; presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were both home brewers!

How to Celebrate American Beer Day

The most obvious activity is to literally drink to the day! Alternatively, you could sample American-made beer at your favorite bar, take a tour of a local brewery, or throw a beer-tasting party at home.

If you’re thinking of hosting family, friends, and fellow beer-lovers, you’ll need to get your home bar looking beer-rilliant! Our collection of beer signs has something for everyone, including bar rules signs, drinking quote signs, and personalized pub signs. So pour yourself a cold one and start shopping! Because beer is always the answer… even if you can’t remember the question.

Fall Decor Trends 2021: Top Ways to Make Your Home Feel Cozy

Fall is a magical time of year. As the temperature cools, the trees turn from emerald to ruby, bronze, and gold. Pumpkin spice flavors and the upcoming holidays make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The changing season also inspires us to switch up our home decor, trading tropical styles for earthy tones and natural textures. So snuggle into your favorite armchair and discover the fall decor trends for 2021!

Orange and Cream Teamed with Chunky Knits

Orange is a classic fall color. As an accent to soft cream or chocolate brown, it really makes a space pop. Try hanging up leaf garlands and wreaths or piling bright orange pumpkins on your porch. Dress your couch with cozy knitted throws and fill glass jars with acorns for a rustic vibe. Raw finishes and harvest-inspired pieces are the keys to achieving this look.

Dark Red and Green with Plaid Fabrics

Match your decor to your go-to fall flannel! Plaid table runners or bedlinens in dark red and forest green look so striking. They’re a sophisticated alternative to rustic orange and brown. Accessorize with woodland motifs and dot lanterns around the room for a homey but chic look. Vases of tall wheat stems will soften the deeper colors and introduce added texture.

Rich Purple with Luxe Velvet and Moody Florals

Fall decor needn’t always be rustic, as this stunning trend proves. Layer up velvet accent pillows in amethyst purple for a hint of drama. Taper candles and floral prints on black ceramics will turn your dinner table into a work of art. Add touches of gold to lift the look, perhaps via metallic lanterns or paint-dipped artificial fruits in glass bowls.

Bonus Tip!

As October approaches, complete your fall decor scheme with a Halloween sign from our collection! You’ll have a welcoming home and be ready for the spooky season.

Women’s Equality Day: Feel Inspired by These 3 Quote Signs

Women’s Equality Day honors the anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920. The amendment gave women the right to vote in the United States – a result of the women’s suffrage movement led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. In 1971, Congress passed a resolution to mark Women’s Equality Day annually, to raise awareness of the suffragists’ work and the importance of gender equality.
