When To Start Decorating For Christmas 2021


Christmas Decor 2021 - when to start decorating

Generally speaking, there’s no right or wrong time to start decorating for Christmas. You can truly decorate for the jolly season whenever you want! However, a great guideline to follow is start decorating right after Thanksgiving. Decorating for Christmas after Thanksgiving will give you an easier transition between the holidays and season.

After Thanksgiving, you can slowly start to eliminate your fall decorations and replace them with Christmas accents. Do this transition gradually from room to room for an easier way to decorate your space. You can even just start with setting up your Christmas tree and then add other accents from there. If you’re not sure how to make a smooth transition from fall decor to Christmas decor, check out some tips below for inspiration.

How To Transition Your Home Decor From Fall To Christmas

Whether you want a bold Christmas look or a more subtle holiday appearance, you can take some simple steps to make the transition from fall to Christmas easier.

  • Start by putting pumpkin decorations and any fall-specific decorations away in storage. You can leave out more subtle fall items for now and transition them out later.
  • Set up your Christmas tree as the base of your entire holiday decorating theme.
  • Replace fall candles with Christmas candles. This can include holiday scents like pine, peppermint, cinnamon, cedarwood, and more.
  • Use pinecones as your main Christmas accents to start out more neutral.
  • Swap in Christmas themed throw blankets and accent pillows.
  • Start incorporating Christmas colors mixed with neutrals for a balanced look.
  • Find areas where you can use warmer fabrics to prepare for the cold winter ahead.

How To Choose A 2021 Christmas Decor Theme

Choosing a theme for your Christmas decor is a great way to set up a seamless spread of decorations throughout your home. If you’re not sure what type of theme to choose for your holiday decor, consider the following:

  • What type of environment do you want to create? Decide if you want to set up a bright and jolly environment or a more warm and comforting one.
  • What color schemes work with your current decor? Your Christmas decorations don’t necessarily need to match your current home decor colors; however, it’s something to consider if you want a more chic look.
  • How much are you willing to dive into a theme? Think about if you’d want the Christmas theme all over your home, or if you just want a more subtle appearance.

Christmas Decor Themes for 2021

When it comes to decorating for Christmas, there are so many different themes to choose from. While this list isn’t all inclusive, here are some popular Christmas decor themes to choose from:
