2015 Holiday Trends & Merchandise Update From Good Tidings

outlook_G48a_bannerGood Tidings has been busily preparing for their 2015 Holiday Market, now open to all customers. We’re very excited by new technology in trees and lighting. In trees, Quick Set Perfect Shape technology continues to be a big hit with customers. These trees literally set up in 5 minutes; the electricity is in the trunk so there are no cords to connect between sections of the tree. The tree needs no shaping as the branches are made with memory wire. This is a great time saver for stores as well as consumers. Look for our new styles of trees with dual color LED lighting which changes from clear to multi. Click here to learn more about our tree offering.

In lighting, LED continues to be an energy saving option but incandescent still outsells LED. We are seeing a greater interest in old-fashioned bulbs such as C7 & C9. LED lights are really effective in outdoor décor. Don’t miss our new snowflakes that are backlit with LED for an interesting and beautiful display. Holiday sentiments such as “JOY” and “HO HO HO” are very popular in outdoor décor. Click here to learn more about Incandescent Lights and LED Lights.

Themes for 2015

Our favorite theme: “Chalkboard” – captures this current trend with ornaments made with chalkboard paint, rustic snowmen, burlap ornaments, adorable snowmen dressed in tweed and herringbone.

Our Natural themes are: “The Nest” – birds, birdhouse, nests and snowflakes in a muted brown and turquoise color scheme. “Into The Woods” – deer and fox nestle among natural elements. “Mittens” – Santa and Snowmen wearing mittens of course! “Woodsy” – an elegant coloration in soft beige, silver and white, accented with gilt magnolia leaves.

Our Traditional themes are: “Merry Merry” – fun group in red, white and green with Santa, with a paper chain garland. “Gilded Crimson” – a sophisticated collection of rich reds and golds with velvety red poinsettias and a touch of glamour. “Vintage” – retro ornaments that will remind you of your childhood tree complete with silver tinsel.

Our Fashion themes are: “Coastal” – soft and inviting with shells and sea life all in a sandy beige and aqua scheme. “Brights” – a colorful and fun group full of bright colors. “Tuxedo” – elegant black and gold with lots of sparkle. “Frozen” – silver and black with LED lighting, very icy looking. “Arctic Frost” – soft blues and silvers with snowy accents.
