With the past eighteen months having tested us all, we’re yearning to return to simpler times this Christmas. That’s why we’re also predicting a return to nostalgic decor that swaps flashy ornamentation for homely classics. Think illustrated wrapping paper, handmade decorations from the art classroom, and even the charmingly gaudy glitter of tinsel. Like a soothing drink in front of the fireplace, it’s a sure way to create a warm and welcoming Christmas that feels like home.
With the steady shift toward greener and more sustainable ways of living, we’re also expecting to see the Christmas colour palette follow suit. Classically festive reds and greens will take on an organic feel, with ochre, umber, and deep forest tones making an appearance. Pair these colours with blue & white baubles and ornaments
for a striking look.
Now that we can once again share in the joy of Christmas with friends and family, casual drop-ins and get-togethers are set to become a mainstay of the holiday season. Cue the scent of sumptuous home baking, and more than a few afternoon teas that spill into the evening.
Serve up a classic Christmas pudding or cake with Wedgwood’s artful cake knives
and cake stands
, and pour an afternoon cup of tea for guests in style with classic English teaware.
After all, not every Christmas get-together needs to be a lavish banquet dinner. It’s the company that matters.
