Holiday Decor Ideas

Start with a table setting

Your holiday party table setting is the time to create a special experience for everyone. Adding in candles, garland, and stoneware to compliment the occasion truly sets the tone for your gathering! Personalizing each setting with name tags or interactive accessories is always a great way to make everybody feel special! After all, the dining table is where all of your guests gather to eat, drink and be merry!

Adding a theme into your tree + wrapping is a great way to decorate for the holidays without really decorating! Wrapping your gifts in paper with colors and textures that coordinate with the rest of your home's style is not only creative, but personal! Adding a bit of festivity in every corner is what makes the holidays the holidays!

Gift Wrapping Ideas

tree trends

Creating a new theme for your holiday decor each year keeps things interesting. This year, neutral ornaments on your trees is one of the biggest trends, adding a chic and modern new feel to your holiday decor. Adding in plaid stockings to compliment the neutrals creates a warmer and rustic feel to complete the overall holiday cheer you desire in your home!

Stocking Ideas


When in doubt...garland it out...Adding garland in any bare space really gives your home that holiday feel. Quick Tip: Garland does not always have to be just greenery! Different textures and colors can make this accessory really pop! Adding in different garland to a table setting or staircase creates a whole new style for that specific space!
