What’s hot this year in Holiday décor? According to the National Hardware Show ( award bigger, bolder, and brighter is the name of the game for this season.

According to them, the latest trends in decorating this season include:

  • Artificial trees in all white or in bright colors, such as vibrant purple or neon green
  • Smaller stature trees placed on risers or in containers, or used to line outdoor walkways
  • Larger scale ornaments, ornaments with whimsical colors or patterns
  • LED lights in bright colors, and hedges wrapped in net lights
  • Yard ornamentation in larger scale (such as life-size toy soldiers), animated and lit lawn statues, and lights set to music.
  • Moravian stars
  • DIY lawn ornaments, such as giant lit Christmas balls made from chicken wire and string lights, or varying sized wreaths stacked to make a snowman
