This year’s holiday decor will be really simple at my house. Not only do I prefer a simple, straightforward, clean aesthetic, but I’m going through some construction around the house and things are all ripped apart and dusty at the moment.
So, I won’t be doing any decorating for the holidays till the last minute.
To stock up on what little I will be decorating with, I’ve been shopping online for a few holiday decor items that have that simple, clean look I’m craving right now, all of which are featured down below. If anything catches your eye, consider making an impulse buy, because everything is on sale during most of Black Friday week, but only for a limited time!
Bay Leaf Wreath & Garland
I love some real greens in my home at Christmas. The problem with living in a warm climate is that everything dries out so fast. No problem with this bay leaf wreath, though, because dried bay leaves are just as fragrant and lovely to have around as when they are fresh. And you can cook with them too!
Williams-Sonoma - Woven from boughs of California bay laurel, it's still shipped to you directly from a Northern California farm to ensure freshness. The leaves will dry naturally and can be used in cooking throughout the year.
I love combining natural elements with a little sparkle. It doesn’t scream Christmas so you can also use it after the holidays are over.
World Market - Distinguish your table with our splendid Natural Fiber and Lurex Table Runner. It's sure to wow your friends and families at holiday gatherings. It's also a splendid accent for year-round entertaining.
Wood Pedestal Bowl
Ballard Designs - Everyone needs a simple, beautiful vessel like our Wood Pedestal Bowl. Fill it with colorful fruit, greenery or ornaments for the holidays and then enjoy it as art year-round. Hand crafted of thick-walled, solid mango wood.
Suzanne Kassler Ornaments
Wouldn’t these look great in that wooden bowl? I love the cream and bronze.
Ballard Designs - An encore to Suzanne Kasler's hugely popular Christmas ornament collection designed exclusively for Ballard, this set of 12 solid color glass balls coordinates with Suzanne's wrapping paper and other ornaments.
Gotta have some mercury glass somewhere.
West Elm - Romantic and reflective. Double the glow with an assortment of Mercury Votive Holders that reflect and refract candlelight. Group them together on a dinner table to show the food and your guests in their best light.
Triangle Lattice Throw
Here's a warm blanket to cuddle up with and bring some Christmas color to the room.
West Elm - The Triangle Lattice Throw features a Southwest-inspired pattern in a rich raspberry color. Cuddle up on movie night or fold one over the back of a sofa for a graphic hit of hue.
Gilded Star Tree Topper
Something natural, gilded, and simple for the top of the tree.
West Elm - Star of the show. An earthy take on traditional trim, this Gilded Star Tree Topper is crafted from actual twigs. A subtle gold shimmer adds a glamorous twist.
Urukundo Fruit Bowl
This would look great with that West Elm blanket. I love a graphic design, and the color makes it perfect for the holidays.
Macy's - Rwandan women pour heart and soul into the Urukundo fruit bowl, a basket made with and symbolic of love. Hanging on a wall or topping a coffee table, the hand-woven red, black and white pattern makes a bold, meaningful statement.
Winter Wonderland Tree
Maybe I should use this instead of a real tree? I guess it depends on how close my construction comes to Christmas!
Restoration Hardware - Cultivate a winter forest with trees that lend a magical glow to indoor and outdoor settings. The branches, dusted with snow and warm-white lights, look elegant on their own or can be strewn with garlands and ornaments.
Weathered Antler Wreath
Love this natural wreath.
Restoration Hardware - Hand pieced from finely detailed resin antlers, our wreath captures the rustic beauty of holiday decorations made from stag horns gathered in alpine forests.
Paper & Wood Ribbon
Every year, I usually wrap my gifts with one or two types of paper, and then use different ribbons to make them unique. This year I’m thinking I might use some pretty ribbons like this with some brown craft paper. (Because it might be Christmas eve before I get to wrap I’d better keep it quick and easy!)
World Market - Made with renewable cotton fiber and water-based dyes, our Paper and Wood Ribbon adds a rustic look to your holiday gifts. Tie them on to your packages, or drape the tree with it and create an old-world charm.
