Dressing Up Your 2020 Holiday Packaging

Make Your 2020 Holiday Packaging Trendy
This year, we have already seen some trends ranging from gorgeous greens inspired by natural vegetation – beautiful landscaping and pops of greenery to warm yellows and seasonal pastels. Some more trends to mix and match with these festive color palettes are:
Winter Whites – the monochromatic winter white trend is inspired by Winter itself and the weather it brings. Pair winter whites with warm neutral tones. The combination of these two color schemes creates an enigmatic, yet ethereal color palette, perfect for the colder months.
Emeralds – Normally, emerald and emerald shades are left for the later part of winter and into the spring months. (Think March and St. Patrick’s Day) However, emerald can stretch into the winter months to give your packaging an evergreen and luscious feel.
Buffalo Plaid – This timeless pattern is perfect for the colder months. Easily incorporate buffalo plaid into any type of packaging and basically any color scheme. The most popular colors used for buffalo plaid are red/black and black/white. Each color combination for this print adds their own spin on this classic print.
