It’s that time of year – my favourite time of year! The house is decorated, my gifts are wrapped and Christmas music is on repeat. When the sun comes up I plan on taking photos of our decor and whipping up a holiday house tour blog post! In the meantime, I’m rounding up ALL of my holiday home decor favourites of the season right here for you!
You’ll notice a lot of the items are from Target. Yes, I went a little Target crazy but when you live in a rural town (two hours away from the big city!) – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I’d usually avoid ordering items from the States but the truth is, I just couldn’t find similar items in any Canadian store! Luckily, for a limited time Target is offering duty free shipping for orders over $100 CAD through Borderfree. So what are you waiting for? Get shopping, girl!
I wanted some cute tea towels for the holidays and these beauties from H&M look so cute hanging over the oven and dishwasher handles. I also purchased this 2-pack, but it looks like it sold out now.
I needed something to brighten up our bar cart so after seeing something similar on Brooke from Nesting With Grace’s mantle, I ordered this tall, silver mercury glass tree from Target’s Enchanted Eve Collection. Fingers crossed that it arrives before Christmas! They also have a smaller tree here.
This cutie comes in three different sizes. I dropped the smallest one into in a red and black buffalo check camp mug and put it on our kitchen counter.
Brooke from Nesting With Grace makes me spend all my money. Like her, I draped this preserved boxwood garland around a window cut-out above our kitchen sink that looks out into what C. and I affectionately call “The Fireroom”. The view may not be pretty, but this garland sure adds a little Christmas cheer to our kitchen.
I contemplated making my own wooden bead garland, but I bought this garland from Target’s Hearth & Hand by Magnolia Collection instead because let’s face it, Joanna just does it better anyways.
I love these trees but the only ones I could find were pink and blue and that’s just not my style. This large bottle brush tree from Target is the perfect shade of green. I originally had it on our bar cart but now it’s on the side table beside our couch. It’s so versatile it can go anywhere!
I needed something to decorate our headboard so I picked this cute pom pom garland up from Canadian Tire and wound a set up fairy lights around it. While I don’t think C. is a fan, I can’t resist cuddling up with a good book under the fairy lights before bed.
C. won’t be happy about this purchase, considering just a few years ago I purchased two really cute black and red buffalo check stockings for us. The truth is, everyone on Instagram has white/cream stockings and so I want some too. I also picked up this one.
H&M continues to be my go-to source for cute and affordable cushion covers. My husband hates all of my throw pillows but as an avid hunter, I feel he shouldn’t complain about this one. I also purchased this cushion cover but it looks like it’s sold out.
Other Holiday Home Decor Favourites
- Red Berry Garland: We don’t have a mantle in our living room – just a TV console. I’d love to drape a bushy, green garland over it but God forbid I block the PS4, satellite receiver and Bose. This red berry garland (wrapped with fairy lights of course) is unobtrusive and helps transform the console into a holiday worthy pseudo-mantle.
- Red Berry with Leaf Stem: I put this in a vase on our bathroom counter for a bright pop of colour.
- Needle Pine with Pinecone Stem and White Berry Stem: Kendall from Styled Snapshots gave me this idea on her stories. I dropped them both into a vase in our kitchen.
I live with a Veteran so out of respect I don’t decorate for Christmas until after Remembrance Day.
