Today I’m sharing how 3 steps for simple + classic Christmas decor. Holiday decor, especially Christmas, can become too much real quick if you aren’t careful. I wanted to share with you my fail proof recipe for making a space festive + natural feeling for the Holiday season.
Step One: Garland
This is my forever go to! I prefer living garland, I haven’t been able to find a faux garland that really makes my heart happy. My go to is Trader Joe’s for inexpensive real cedar garland! It only costs $8 for 8 feet and I love it. You can also go to a local tree lot for fresh garland, they often have it available by the foot but you will pay a lot more. You can see where I tried some faux holiday garland, but I missed the bright fresh green of the real stuff.
Step Two: Winter stems
I have these a couple of these gorgeous white jars that are pretty much permanent fixtures around my house, I love to seasonally change out what stems are in them. It is the easiest way to update a space for seasons as they change. You can see how I styled them previously, with some simple fall florals. I have them filled now with some berry branches + faux evergreen. Swapping out your stems you have out is definitely one of the easiest ways to create simple + classic holiday spaces.
Step Three: Whimsical touch
I always like to add a couple things to keep my spaces light hearted during the holidays. I added the little white house, which I have been loving and the little Holiday banner on the mirror. I feel like they help keep the space playful. They work well with my simple + classic Christmas decor but also add a little bit of fun and whimsy to the mix.
We also have our stockings in our entry way because we lack a mantle, a couple years ago I thought they looked cute there and they’ve just kinda stuck through the years, they also go along with that whimsical idea.
I love this simplified version of our Christmas entry way. It feels so festive but is rather simple. I reanalyzed and used all these 3 steps to create simple + classic Christmas decor approach in our entry way and it turned out so good! I feel like these steps are great for decorating your entire Holiday home, when in doubt for sure use these 3 things.
