9. Pretty Pastels
It's all about those pretty pastel shades! Are you ready to step into your own perfect pastel wonderland? Then read on and learn more about this gorgeous theme that will create a dreamy and comforting style in your home or venue. A pastel theme is completely versatile and focuses on creating a tranquil yet elegant look that will transform your space into a realm of soft, delicate hues. Consider using gentle shades of blush pink, lemon yellow, mint green, soft lavender, and baby blue. Decorate your tree with pretty, pastel baubles and ornaments, along with white tinsel that will be sure to make your pastel theme pop.
You can also team your pastel shades with other elements such as glittery accents, and twinkling fairy lights to create a magical ambiance. If you'd like to continue the pastel theme at your dining table, then how about serving your indulgent festive feast on blush pink and white dinnerware?
Minimalist Christmas décor is all about scaling back and choosing a small selection of decorative pieces for your space. This theme is a brilliant choice for anyone who doesn't want to go all out with their festive décor and would rather opt for a low key approach. However, don’t be fooled into thinking that minimalist design is dull! Think of it more as a decluttered, streamlined vibe that works best with a neutral backdrop such a white, light grey or soft beige wall.
A modest Christmas tree is best for this look, and ensure you stick to one colour palette when it comes to the ornaments. Use your decorations sparsely - remember, less is more here. As for lights, we'd recommend very subtle tree lights in a soft glow to create a barely there look. It’s a simple style, but one that’s modern and humbling all the same.
