I have a confession to make: I threw out the majority of my old, tired, and quite frankly, scary, Christmas decor last year. I’ve been on the hunt for ideas and have found many great ones this season at local retailers. I already discussed the big Twig trend last week. There are two other trends I’ve noticed: mercury glass and color.
If you do no other updates this season, just do one of these and you will be up to speed. Perhaps ridding yourself of the light up, singing Hallmark stuffed animals is another start, but that is probably just my own personal problem area.
Mercury glass is showing up everywhere from ornaments to mantels.
The second trend I’m seeing is color. I don’t mean just plain red and dark green. Try white, orange, light blue or lime green.
Does seeing all of this inspiration make you want to:
1. Go out and buy one, two or three of these trends.
2. Hire someone to do the decorating for you.
3. Perhaps think about getting your ornaments out of storage and maybe putting a few things up. (Personal favorite.)
3. Run screaming from the building. (Personal reality.)
Suffice it to say, we have so much local talent here who make all of this decorating look easy. Be sure to buy local and support all of these great designers and retailers in Louisville.
