The holidays are just around the corner, and you realize that there is still a lot of Christmas decor shopping to be done. However, topping last year’s Christmas and New Year bash can be quite a challenge as this year you want to have a themed holiday. This year, you want to experiment with new colors and bright themes. However, which one do you choose is the main dilemma as mainstream retail outlets feature competitive options for a theme holiday.

You can consider the following points before browsing for the best theme-based Christmas decor.

Color theme
Red and green fairy lights with gold ornaments are something that you will come across in most of the households during the Christmas week. It’s a tradition, and, for many, the holidays are all about keeping up with the centuries-old tradition. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have room to improvise. Choose a central contemporary color theme that will blend well with the fairy lights by incorporating bold colors, including blue and purple contrasting against a subtle white and silver. A few splashes of metallic and glitter can brighten up your living room.

Decor style
Mainstream retail websites like Macy’s and Target feature multiple combinations and styles for preset Christmas decor. Christmas Cheer, Dreamland, Shine Bright, Snowy Eve, Joy To The World, and Let It Snow are the popular themes you will find on the Macy’s website. Merry Lane, Retro Holidays, Classic Farmhouse, Birchwood Bay, Toymaker, and Enchanted Eve are available with Target to help you transform your home layout for the holidays. You should know that everything from Christmas ornaments to the type of lights will be customized according to the theme. A theme installation saves you the time and efforts needed to shop for individual decorations. You can also shop for a combination of products from two or three themes to mix and match Christmas decor and come up with your personalized version of a winter wonderland.

Tree ornaments
Ornaments to be featured on a Christmas tree come in all shapes and sizes. You can always buy traditional ornaments that go well with the theme you have picked for the decorations or find a variety of stars, snowflakes, and tree angels to mix and match and see which ones suit the theme best.
