Guide to Christmas Decorations & Holiday Decor

Every year, I look forward to bringing out all of our Christmas decorations! The weekend after Thanksgiving we pick out our tree at the farm and come home to a delicious batch of hot cocoa, cookies and decorate the house for Christmas.

The holiday tunes are blaring and we unpack all of our Christmas items that were carefully stored the previous year. It’s fun to take a walk down memory lane with the decorations.

Some items we’ve had for over 10 years and I like to add new ones to my collection too. Since the sales are amazing on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (literally 40% off most of the stores we chose items from!) we created a Guide to Holiday Decor Shopping!

These are a few of our favorite things … from ornaments to storage! And of course, there is no better time to buy them when they’re on sale!

Christmas Wrapping Paper and Tags

Gifting beautifully wrapped presents is so special! I love adding a little charm with gift tags or a pretty gift box.

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decor can be as festive as you want. Some like it minimal with a few decorative accents and others like a winter wonderland.

I’m personally in the middle and I mix classic and modern items with fresh flowers and greens. Here are a few of my favorite decor items for the holidays!

Christmas Trees and Christmas Wreaths

From Christmas trees to Christmas wreath! I like to use fresh greens with some of our classic faux trees and garlands.

These days, faux garlands and trees look so real and it’s nice to be able to use it over and over again.

Also, don’t forget tree accessories too, a watering can is a must to water your fresh trees and a skirt transforms the tree into a decorative piece.

Christmas Ornaments

Is there anything more charming than hanging ornaments on your tree?! A tradition passed on for centuries!

It’s fun to think about how families used ornaments over the years to decorate their trees and how different they look today. Here are a few of our favorite, festive ornaments!

I like to give them as gifts and present toppers, as well as update my own collection. This year, I’ll be adding quite a few to my collection as I felt my tree was very bare last year!

Storage Bags and Bins for Christmas Decorations

The best thing you can do for your future self is to organize all of your holiday decorations when it’s time to pack it all up. You will thank yourself when you’re unraveling perfectly packed lights and pulling out non-broken ornaments!

Keeping everything clean and tidy is crucial for preserving your decorations. If you haven’t invited to holiday storage, do it this year. I found these Christmas storage items to be very useful when packing our trees, ornaments, wrapping paper, and more. It’s a little investment upfront but will last for years and years!
