Cozy Christmas

The best part of the holidays is being with loved ones, cherishing little moments and snuggling up to stay cozy despite the winter chill. The warmth of the indoors and family bond is sure to be highlighted with the Cozy Christmas theme. The evergreen props and wood background provide a rustic feeling that reflects a holiday in the country or Christmas spent at the cabin. This theme calls for casual yet coordinating attire. For example, dressing the family in plaid is a good choice. Consider the red-and-black checkered pattern of buffalo plaid that is timeless and adds a dash of ruby red for visual interest.
