5 Festive Holiday Décor Ideas
Create a Cozy Mantle
Hanging your stockings by the chimney with care isn’t the only way to decorate your mantle for the holidays. Spruce it up with greenery, berries, candles, and ornaments to add color and holiday cheer. For a more nature-inspired look, decorate with burlap, birch wood candlesticks, and pine cones. No matter what your style, there are plenty of holiday-inspired mantel ideas to choose from!
Throws and Pillows
Complement the warmth in your holiday home décor by adding cozy blankets & holiday pillows with pops of gold, green, red, or any other fun holiday colors. Plaids, knits, felt, faux fur, holiday designs/patterns, and Christmas colors are just a few of the many options that will bring the cozy decor in your home.
Spruce Up Your Table
Whether you are planning a big holiday dinner party or arranging a smaller celebration with family, the table is the gathering place that brings everyone together. Decorate your table with fresh greenery and add in accents like pine cones, small poinsettias, and cranberries. Additional centerpiece ideas include homemade snow globes, wrapping paper trees, and pine cone trees.
Food is an important part of celebrating the holidays, but it can also play a festive role in your home holiday décor. Consider incorporating items like cranberries, pomegranates, apples, oranges, nuts, and candy canes in your holiday décor.
The More, The Merrier
While your living room, dining room, and front entry will hold most of your holiday decorations, you can extend your décor and holiday trimmings to your bedrooms and bathrooms. Adding in winter-themed towels will accent your bathrooms, and throwing holiday throws and pillows in your bedrooms will spread the holiday spirit throughout your home.
