I’m so excited about this year’s Christmas decorating. I know, Thanksgiving is this week! I’m not skipping ahead but I know many of you will begin decorating for Christmas right after so I wanted to share this ahead of time so that you have inspiration if needed. I really loved decorating with blue last year. It was so easy to take it from Christmas to winter and it felt very natural to my style so I knew I’d use it again this year. I am changing it up a bit because I found the most gorgeous emerald green ornaments that will be a great addition. I think it will end up looking very elegant and traditional in a way even though the colors aren’t exactly traditional Christmas colors.
Okay – some details:
I’m most excited to decorate my mantel this year. I ordered this eucalyptus garland which will be a nice change from my usual faux pine garland. I plan on adding in some real greenery here and there as well as some bulb ornaments to compliment the tree that will be close by. I’m considering these cable knit stockings because I really love the addition of the navy pompoms however, I have some that are very similar so I may just add a velvet bow to the stockings I already have.
The tree is new this year. I upgraded a bit because I really wanted a taller tree for our living room because we have nice tall ceilings. I love the flocking and it was very easy to put together (literally did it on my own in less than ten minutes). Another new thing for me this year is a tree collar. I’m thrilled to be done with a tree skirt. I’ve never found one I’ve loved, in fact, many years I’ve just draped a pretty blanket around the base of my tree.
For the sofa, I found a pair of blue and white plaid pillows at Home Goods on clearance a few weeks back (similar to this one). I think those with a gorgeous green velvet pillow will be perfect (these are very affordable).
I added this rug to my entryway, I love the colors and texture and I think it will be great to carry through winter.
As you can see, there are a few new things but I’ll also be reusing a lot of my blue decor from last year which I’m excited about it! I hope this was a bit of inspiration for you! I’d love to hear in the comments what you’re thinking this year for Christmas decor!
