Festively: An Unashamedly Festive Blog Theme Free Download

About Festively

We’ve gone all festive here and have created this cracker of a Blog Theme! We’ve designed Festively to bring a little extra seasonal cheer.

Want a lovely big homepage hero image? You’ve got it. Want a grid of your sticky posts on your homepage? You’ve got it. Want a cool and collected minimal design, with gorgeous share overlays, search overlays and a beautiful mobile experience?… then Festively is your cup of tea.

As well as a widgetized sidebar, we have a header widget area and a footer widget area that adapt to the amount of widgets you have. For example, only using 1 widget, we’ll make it 100% and centered – perfect for a web banner.

We’ve kept things clean and simple with this one, using the Theme Customizer you can control layouts (sidebar right, no sidebar, sticky menu) and show and hide most of the elements of the theme.

Update History

Color Options

You can control colours for the entire theme using the beautifully simple WordPress Theme Customizer.

Advanced Font Options

You can add any font from Google Web Fonts, Typekit or Adobe Web fonts using our custom controls in the WordPress Theme Customizer. You’ll need a Typekit account and also a subscription dependent on font usage. You can even control all of the font sizes through the Theme Customizer.
