Holiday Decorating Favorites

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s full steam ahead on the Christmas decor. I put my tree up just before Thanksgiving and I shared a sneak peek of it over on Instagram (you can see it here). I’ve been putting together a little list of all the holiday decor that I love over the last few weeks and I wanted to share it with you if you are in need of some inspiration for holiday decorating.

When it comes to holiday decorating besides the obvious Christmas tree, stockings, and garland, my go to’s for making your home feel cozier are blankets and pillows. This year I’ve found so many pretty textured pillows that I love. I’m challenging myself to decorate without red this year (with the exception of my girls’ room which will be more colorful than the rest of our home) so I’m opting to bring in more texture like knits, velvets, and fur in neutral colors.


Last year I used a bunch of fresh garland in my decor because I love the smell and the look of fresh pine garland. My only complaint is that it just doesn’t last for me. Since I start decorating right after Thanksgiving, by Christmas day, the garland is crispy and brown and not very festive. There are so many real looking faux garlands out there that this year I’m going to limit myself on the real greenery and go for more faux. Faux garland will last year after year which in the long run is a better investment. Not only am I adding greenery garland, I love the look of beaded and tassel garlands as well to mix it up the look.


I haven’t decided what exactly I’m going to do on my mantle this year but I’m playing with the idea of lots of candles on chunky wooden candlesticks. Or creating a little village. What are your thoughts?
