When it comes to Christmas décor, consumers have confirmed—with their attention and their dollars— that they want new choices every year. For 2016 (or 2015 if you create specialty and high-end assortments), The Trend Curve™ has created 11 original trends and 32 carefully chosen colors to help you give them exactly what they want!
Some of our best looks for this all-new color-and-trend forecast are also the most unexpected: pink, popcorn and puka shells.
Pink Is The New Red. This trend shows you how pink will influence everything from Santa’s wardrobe to holly berries. And because of the increased attention to pink, expect an evolution of greens that will make them better companions. Traditional Holiday green will be replaced by shades like pistachio, moss, hunter and others for combinations that feel fresh, yet familiar. ‘Tis The Season gives you paint-on-paper color swatches for all these future favorites in a 5” x 5” square, plus a portable mini-deck.
Treats always take center stage during the Holiday season. Cupcakes and macaroons have had starring roles in the recent past. But going forward, the newest Christmas treats will actually be the ones that have stood the test of time. Popcorn balls and hard candy in cellophane wrap will look complete new to the next generation. So will old-fashioned gingerbread boys and girls, updated with 21st century outfits. We’ll give you all the details in our Sweet Memories trend.
Puka shells are just a sprinkling of the seashells types you’ll find for Christmas future. Our oceanic Christmastide trend captures the sea’s blue-green water and velvety beige beaches, forming one of the freshest Holiday palettes we’ve seen in a long while! If you create assortments for coastal areas, this is the trend you have been waiting for!
From the great 1960’s and 70’s come-together of Peace (and Love) on Earth to the yearning for solitude reflected in our All Is Calm trend, ‘Tis The Season 2015-16 is filled with all of the harmonious and contrasting influences you’ll need for the Holidays! See for yourself: http://tdcv.us/1lz7sMW
