2020 Holiday Decor Trends
Fun and Festive Inflatables
Holiday inflatables—lawn decorations that fill up with air and are typically illuminated inside—have been a hugely popular holiday decoration for years now. You’ve likely seen inflatable Santas, giant gift boxes, trees, and teddy bears on your neighbors’ lawns (or even their roofs, if they’re adventurous).
But in the year 2020, humanity has reached new heights of inflatable holiday decor creativity, with a truly staggering selection of holiday inflatables to choose from. Want to show your Christmas pride with a rainbow arch and Santa Claus riding a peppermint unicorn? You got it! Ready to let your nerd flag fly with an eight-and-a-half-foot-tall Star Wars AT-AT walker decked out like Rudolph? Here it is. Or maybe you’ve just got to let your neighbors know how much you love watching baby-goat-in-pajamas videos on TikTok? Unleash the beast!
One of the best parts about inflatable holiday decor is that it typically costs less to power than standard Christmas lights. Add in the ease of storage and the visual impact—not to mention the ability to personalize your decor and express yourself—and it’s no wonder that inflatable decorations continue to flourish.
Christmas Lights Projections
Another holiday decor trend that has been around for a while, slowly growing in popularity and variety, is the Christmas lights projection. You don’t have to be a tech genius to pull off these decorations; most of these products are simple to operate with wireless remote control and are pre-programmed to illuminate your home with colorful dots, holiday images, or even animated figures. And you don’t have to go with red and green lights or Santa Claus, either; there are versions with dreidels and Hanukkah images, snowflakes, and more.
Instead of spending hours untangling strings of lights, figuring out which ones have dead bulbs, and then struggling not to fall off of your ladder while hanging them, you can simply set up your projector of choice in 10 minutes. That means more time to kick your feet up with a mug of cocoa and watch your favorite holiday movies!
Of course, if you’re more into the traditional holiday decorations, those never go out of style. Classic string lights on your house and trees, garlands of greenery and lights on your front porch, and wreaths on the doors and windows are always a great look. You don’t even have to choose—come up with your own combination of decor and show off your festive style! Not only will your family have a blast designing your holiday display, but you’ll also be spreading smiles and holiday cheer to everyone who passes your house.
