2016 Holiday Decor

2016 Holiday Decor

Wanted to share a few shots of my holiday decor this year. I always try to do something slightly different than previous years. You can see last year’s decor here and here. By putting decor in different places or arranging it in a new way, it feels fresh and new- and that way- you don’t need to buy a ton of decor every year. I added a few new pieces but overall used 90% of what I had previously.

Now that I have a pup, I went with a slightly smaller tree in the 4-5 foot range this year instead of 6+. Looks a little wonky before the branches fell and before it was decorated…  Improving with lights and ribbon! Last year I had the ribbon wrapped around the width of the tree. I wanted to reuse the ribbon but try something new this year. So I DIY’d a giant bow at the top and tied multiple strands of ribbon to it so it was cascading vertically around the entire tree. I was a bit skeptical at first but I love how it turned out.     Someone just hanging out with a new toy and a tiny tree skirt from year’s past    And here it is with ornaments on! Rewarded myself with some hot chocolate  One of my new additions- this gorgeous marble tree from target.   Quick and easy decor- add ornaments to a bowl, vase, etc.   Last year I had the jingle bell strand on the credenza. Decided to hang it over the mirror this year and added lights to make it even more festive! Excuse the mess in the background…      Tiny tree for the dining table.   This might be one of my favorites this year. Hung my CB2 disco balls onto my macrame wall hanging. So easy and little hooks do zero damage.   One more new addition. This cute little bottle brush tree in a dome from Flying Tiger in NYC.   Extra ornaments tossed around the bar.        A few close ups of the tree  I had a bunch of fake berries and glittered pinecones that I put in vases previously, but added them to the tree this year and I love how much color and depth it created!   Lastly, added a simple strand of lights in the bedroom.   Late afternoon glow.   And here’s what they look like at night. Easy and festive!  Thanks for joining along on my little tour and hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
