Holiday decorations, like most things in life, have changed over the years. Today’s decorations reflect current realities, and this year, new decorations will be making the lineup.
The trends continuously change over time, including popular materials, colors, styles, etc. Newer decorations also feature environmentally friendly materials, reflecting the changing attitudes towards climate change.

Change remains the only constant in life; Christmas decorations are no exception. And perhaps fittingly, The Mistletoe Cocktails a drink of our modern times.
