Everywhere I look, there are “gift guides” being offered for the holidays. What if we decided to take things slow and actually savor the act of decoration? After all, the many hours we spend in our home should be surrounded by loved ones and lovely things.
If you’re like me, your ‘Holiday Decorations’ box is jam packed with tangled lights and odds and ends collected over the years. Aside from items with sentimental value, there is definitely room for improvement on your holiday décor. Therefore, I’ve compiled a guide to bring your decorations from cliche and tired to something people will marvel at as they sip the eggnog!
Above is perhaps one of my favorite ways to decorate as of late: Garland! Whether it’s these darling multi-colored felt balls or home-made signs spelling out a sentiment, it’s an easy way to dress up a room! These cool colors are available at Home Remedy, a site specializing in modern treatments for the home. Check them out HERE or for folks looking for something different, they have a Pom Pom version as well.Word Wonderland: As you know, I am sucker for the written word. (1) This knife can be used all year round and displayed during the holidays for a reminder of its message! Available at Milk & Honey. (2) This ribbon is a message of love and makes for a great alternative garland on the tree. I can see this being a surprise decoration for those getting engaged during the holidays! Available from The Lonely Heart. (3) Timeless + Classic = books. This all white stack of novels brings Winter whimsy to any space by Huckster Haven.
Back To Nature: No matter which holiday you celebrate, this is a theme that can be enjoyed by all. (1) Vintage mason jars house perfect snowy trees reminiscent of snow globe magic sans water. Worley’s Lighting created these lovelies; swoon with me. (2) A modern day ornament of a brightly colored feather can be used as décor all year round. Hand painted by River Luna. (3) Literally snatched from nature, these dried sequoia tree pine cones are simple elegance by Earth Beauties. (4) A handmade wood cottage adorned with snowy trees (made from bottle brushes) by Mary’s Workshop make my heart melt.
Simple + Soft: This category is ideal for those with little ones running about. (1) A “Peace” felt banner by is one of many by Kata Golda. (2) Another treat by Kata Golda perfect for those celebrating Christmas. There are nine variations on this stocking, something for everyone! (3) Last but not least, this darling Angel is perfect for the holidays and can stay out all year round! Available at Diapers.com
I hope you enjoyed my round up of home decorations for the holidays! Take time to enjoy the act of decorating if you can. It makes all the difference on how you’ll start your holiday season.
