Plaid, buffalo check, tartan are traditional for Christmas decor, they have always been festive-like and they still are. These prints easily bring a Christmassy feel to the space, and no matter how you use them, the effect is guaranteed. Today I’d like to show you some cool and cute ideas to incorporate these prints into your holiday decor – it’s high time to do that now!
Add touches of plaid or tartan to the tablescape to make it ultra cozy and comfy. It can be a tablecloth, matching napkins and even a table runner of plaid ornaments and evergreens – what a great holiday idea! If you have plaid or tartan plates or chargers, use them for creating a tablescape, add red ribbons and napkins, snowy pinecones and evergreens to make a cool rustic table setting. Accessorize your chairs with plaid ribbon or tartan bows with evergreens, pinecones and jingle bells to match the tablescape.
Christmas Tree Decor
Decorate your tree with plaid ornaments – baubles or maybe plaid fabric ones made with embroidery hoops. You can actually turn any ornament into a plaid one wrapping it with ribbon or fabric – such an easy DIY! Add matching garlands or ribbons to make the tree rustic and cozy but don’t be excessive with it – tartan and plaid go well with reds and glitter touches, so you may add them. Make a cool Christmas tree skirt of plaid or tartan and place some blankets around to match the tree. If you prefer more neutral decor, go for buffalo check and black and white ornaments.
