Christmas 2018 Decor Trends | BentleyBlonde



Hi Everyone! I am so excited to be joining so many talented bloggers for my first Christmas in July Blog Hop! If you're new to my blog, thank you so much for stopping by. Welcome, if you just came to my blog from my sweet friend Brittany at Addison's Wonderland. If you haven't visited her site yet, be sure to take a look! Brittany is an incredibly talented interior designer with such elegant style, and I know you'll have enjoyed her tour.

Today I'll be sharing a couple photos of my Christmas decorations from last year, as well as sharing my take on decor trends for this upcoming Christmas 2018!

Last year I decided on a classic red ticking stripe theme to add a punch of color to our flocked wonderland. I loved how the warm red berry branches, and thick canvas ribbon added dimension to our tree and garland. Hope you enjoy these photos from around our home. I also shared a full Christmas house tour on my Youtube channel HERE

Want to know what I think will be "in" this holiday season? Check out my predicted top decor themes for Christmas 2018 below!


Flocked Trees and Garland

Flocked trees and trimmings add a touch of snowy wonder to any holiday space! The beauty of flocked trees is that they can look just as beautiful naked as they do decked out with ornaments. All of our flocked trees are from King of Christmas, and I've linked them individually further down in this post. Hands down, King of Christmas has the fullest, and most natural looking flocked trees on the market and they hardly shed! (a major bonus for this clean freak mama)

Winter Wonderland

Sticking with the ever popular snowy theme, trees decorated with  white faux fur, feather boas and even dollar store dusters (read more about them at CraftBerry Bush) will be center stage this year! Achieve this look by draping a thick, white boa in your tree, add snowy picks and flocked pinecones to add dimension.

Neutral Farmhouse 

Rustic touches and neutral muted tones continue to rein supreme in the decor world this holiday season. To achieve this look, try placing tabletop trees in rustic steel buckets, add a burlap runner with fresh pine trimmings to the table, and accent with wooden candlesticks and various textured pillows.

Red Ticking Stripe

A classic Christmas fabric like red ticking stripe will add a touch of nostalgia, and a pop of color to your holiday decor! I went with the red ticking stripe theme in our home last year by tucking curls of ribbon throughout our flocked tree, and tied onto rustic lanterns.

Black & White Buffalo Check


The perfect farmhouse touch, buffalo check, will be making a big appearance this Christmas in it's trendiest color variation, black and white. I'm loving this look and majorly considering this fabric as the inspiration for our Christmas 2018 decor theme!

Colorful Vintage

Everything old is new again! Beautiful frosted glass ornaments, colorful vintage bulbs and other nostalgic touches are making a big comeback. Try this look out by checking out your local thrift store or antique shop for hidden treasures!

If you're looking for a new tree this year, I highly recommend checking out the beautiful trees over at King of Christmas! I own their 9 Foot King Flock Artificial Tree Unlit and the 8 Foot Prince Flock Artificial Tree with Warm White LED Lights, as well as their flocked garland, wreath and tabletop size trees and they are all AMAZING. I've been beyond impressed not only with the amazing quality of their trees, but also with their excellent customer service and speedy shipping! I've linked below all of the King of Christmas items we have in our home:
