5 Winter Décor Trends

Spruce up your wintertime meetings with these cold-weather design ideas

It’s beginning to look a lot like … winter. And with a new season comes new design trends. 

So, say goodbye to autumnal plaid and warm-toned hues, and hello to these wintertime décor favorites.

Garland

While you’re decking the halls, deck out your event space in garland, too. Traditional chains or wreaths of garland lean more floral, using in-season blooms such as holly, hellebore and English primrose as decoration. But don’t be afraid to get creative, either: Garland made of tinsel, burlap or intricate paper designs can also hit the perfect decorative note.

White

No surprises on the inspiration here: Winter’s snowy months make white the color of the season. Whether you’re hosting a winter wonderland or just trying to be more festive, incorporating this hue in every element of the event—be it in centerpieces or cocktails—is a great way to celebrate the time of year.

Mirrored or Glass Accent Pieces 

Want to replicate the effect of snowflakes, icicles and other glassy winter details? Decorate with mirrored or glass accent pieces. Design bonus: Mirrored objects can give your meeting space more depth and make it appear larger

String Lights

Many countries experience shorter daylight hours during the winter, and with less light to go around, different lighting techniques have become a staple of wintertime design. String lights, in particular, are a great way to add brightness to a room and spread festive cheer.

Textured, Cozy Details

If the weather outside is frightful, let attendees warm up with welcoming, cozy details. For instance, textured pillows or fabrics on chairs, couches and other seating reminiscent of woven blankets can invoke a homelike, comfortable meeting atmosphere.
