No surprise - we here at Christmas Central have been planning our Christmas decorations for a while now! As always, it’s so much fun to see which decorating styles, colors and combinations are represented in the latest Christmas trends.

Christmas has always been a time to have fun with color and decorate with abandon while expressing your personal style - and this year is no exception! Read on to find out more about some of the hot Christmas decorating trends for Christmas 2022.

Christmas 2022 decorating trends Gingerbread


Christmas 2022 is all about comfort and coziness – and what’s cozier than a Christmas cookie? While the gingerbread theme is a Christmas classic, the look this year is diverse. There are traditional gingerbread men, gingerbread women and gingerbread houses with red, green and white trim. Bright candy colors are popular, too, so you’ll find gingerbread decorations embellished in minty green and bubblegum pink, as well as candy cane red and white.

Metallic Luxury

Gold, silver and luxury metals provide a rich, glamorous look from deeply traditional to sleekly modern. Go for a gold or bronze glow in a green tree or a shimmer of silver or platinum in a flocked tree. Metallic Christmas ornaments glimmer on their own but also shine brightly mixed with nearly any popular color palette. Try trendy combos like cobalt with silver Christmas ornaments or pink with gold Christmas ornaments. Metals look great off the tree, too, in wreath accents and table top decor.

Frost and Mint

Frosted glass ornaments and minty colors play perfectly with the winter theme. They look well with traditional pine-y greens or decorating a frosted or flocked Christmas tree. Accent with gold or silver trim or combine with snowflakes and white mini lights to bring the theme together.  Frost and mint green Christmas ornaments also pair nicely with wintry blues.

Shades of Purple

The 2022 Pantone Color of the Year is “Very Peri,” a dusky purple with blue-gray undertones. This opens the door for purple Christmas ornaments in all shades of the spectrum, from romantic lavender to playful plums to deep amethyst and eggplant. Purple ornaments pop on green or flocked trees. Purple Christmas decorations pair well with silver or gold, and complement other jewel tones like sapphire and emerald.

Natural & Woodland

Nature inspires woodland Christmas decor. Pine green and deep berry are predominant tones, accented with natural materials like pinecones, flowers and dried fruit. A woodland theme opens the door for decorations depicting many of nature’s creatures, including deer, birds, mice and other forest animals.

Christmas 2022 decorating trends black and white

Black and White

Both popular and modern farmhouse decor support black and white design, and today’s black and white Christmas tree decorations do, too. Stay simple and homey with black and white buffalo plaid, go a little more sophisticated with houndstooth, or bold and dramatic with black velvet bows and glossy black Christmas decorations on a white tree. Forest green and crimson and berry tones go well with black and white design. Add luster with silver or pewter ornaments, clear crystals and white lights. Black and white decor also can be whimsical - think penguins, snowmen and snowflakes!
