Retro Holiday Greeting Cards & Stickers

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Okay well, maybe not yet, but pretty soon it will be! The closer we get to Halloween the closer we get to the amazing holiday season – and retailers are just chomping at the bit to get that store Christmas tree up, and the holiday merchandise off of the shelves.  What trends will we see in the upcoming holiday season?

Well, if you haven’t already noticed while shopping, the 80’s are coming back into style.  You’ve already seen it in retro colored and patterned pants, scrunchies and those awful black sunglasses with the neon sides – who would have thought that our old 80’s gear would be back in-style?  Just a few years ago I was laughing at old pictures of our white Christmas tree which was decorated in hot pink lights – and now I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I kind of wish we had kept it!

Retro is IN this holiday season – so it’s all about the blacks, hot pinks, turquoise blues, lime greens and yellows…and I absolutely love it!  I thought I’d get a jump start on the holiday season and show you one of our cutest holiday card and sticker ensembles by Modern Posh.  The ensemble is called Holly Jolly and features a black background with retro snowflakes and confetti dots, which surround a hot pink Christmas tree.  The back of the card features the ever-popular chevron stripe design in retro colors, as well.  Use the same design with the two holiday stickers offered, which work great for return address labels, holiday gift tags and holiday favor stickers to create a matching ensemble.

In the below inspiration board, you’ll see a few ideas to create your own posh retro holiday decor.  From hot pink Christmas trees and Christmas lights to retro colored bulb ornaments and  vibrant purple star on top, you’re ready for a totally rad holiday season!
