November has arrived, which means it might be time to start unboxing your holiday decor or ordering anything you need to spruce up your home for the festive season! I am typically very strict about no Christmas decorations or music until after Thanksgiving. But given that Covid-19 has continued to alter our lives, I might need to put the tree up early for an extra dose of holiday joy.
Everyone has a unique style when it comes to decorating for the holidays (traditional, modern, colorful, rustic, etc.). Today’s wish list includes items that I am eyeing for my new home. Since my husband (Mr. B) and I recently moved from the UK to the US, we’ll be purchasing a whole new set of holiday decor! I am envisioning lots of winter whites, with gold embellishments, and wooden accents to add warmth. Hopefully you’ll find some pieces below that fit into your holiday aesthetic!
Suggestions for Holiday Decor
I always loved the little Christmas towns my mom would set up when I was a kid. This one takes a minimalist twist on the holiday classic. This simple nutcracker also caught my eye! And because Mr. B reminds me that we can’t just live in a white box, with white furniture, and white decorations, I added in black reindeer and wooden trees to the mix. If you don’t have a mantel, you can use these items to decorate your kitchen counter, dining table, book shelves, or on top of a bedroom dresser! They will look extremely festive scattered around green garland, like this faux eucalyptus. Use a forest green pillow to complement your tree and any garland you put on display. Layer it with other pillows and throw blankets to create a cozy environment! Gold and silver ornaments of various textures and shapes will give your tree a classic/chic look. I like the like look a a tree collar instead of a skirt because it won’t move or get wrinkled as gifts are placed under the tree. Lastly, don’t forget a matching tree topper!
I hope these suggestions have your inner interior designer bursting with ideas!
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season!
