My Favorite Christmas Decor Items This Year


Much of our tree decor is years old, and every year I like to change things up and rotate through some of my ornaments, but this year, I added some new items—I wanted to add more texture and a bit more color (albeit still subdued and somewhat tonal).

From Hobby Lobby, I picked up more Rose Ridged Glitter Balls, Rose Gold Pearl Ornaments, Beaded Wreath Ornaments (removed the burlap bow) and these deep pink Velvet Glitter Balls (so gorg).

Last year I added these large, 6″ Etched Mercury Ornaments. They’re a little heavy, but they add scale and have a stunning, antique quality to them. Plus, I love how the lights reflect and gleam off of them.

As mentioned, I wanted to add different textures and finishes, so I added what are probably my favorite ornaments of the year—these Rattan Woven Bells. These Jute & Wood Beaded Swags add unexpected texture too. Continuing to play with scale, I incorporated these gorgeous Dipped Cream Mercury Ornaments that also rock a vintage vibe while feeling so elegant.

And while my tree is all kinds of glitter and gleam, I wanted to temper that shimmer with some matte pieces. My faves are these oversized Matte Snow Ornaments. I lovvvvve them. I’m using the same but smaller ornaments in combo with the glossy whites as filler in a lantern. To add some deep color, I also layered in some Espresso pieces, some satin ribbons in the same deep brown and burgundy hues (thanks to Studio McGee for the inspo), and topped the whole thing with this Woven Straw Tree Topper.

The tree skirt is actually two faux fur blankets (similar to this one) from Target!


This year I scaled back a little more so that the decor I do have has a little bit more impact. I continued with the neutral theme, using cozy textures, tonal colors, and various finishes from matte to full-on glitter to achieve a festive wintery atmosphere.

My favorite go-to is a bowl bursting with glittery ornaments and this year, this oversized Pottery Barn bowl was the perfect receptacle. I layered in some white ceramic houses on top of books, piled some snowy pine cones into bowls and added my favorite pine-smelling candles all over the house. The Forest & Fir candle from McGee & Co is my new obsession.

An abundance of pillows in different furry and sweatery textures add a perfect, warmth coziness with stockings hung from our cabinets in similar feels. A new, pre-lit white berry wreath welcomes visitors at our door with some pretty, copper bells from Target cascading at its center.

These are just some of the pieces that bring a little magic to our home during the holidays, and I hope they inspire you to create your own kind of magic at home too.


Finally, what are the holidays without a little indulgence?! These are some of our favorite treats—many which also make fantastic gifts!
