With the holidays just around the corner, it’s a time that many of us start to bring those little festive reminders of the season into our home. Below our ambassadors are sharing some simple holiday decor ideas that are sure to infuse your home with just the right amount of holiday cheer.
#1 – Transitional bouquets
Monika of Internationelle says,
I love putting together what I refer to as “transitional bouquets” of flowers that move seamlessly from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Complete with anything seasonal, including berries and wildflowers for texture, structure, and seasonality.
Late fall has many great flowers in bloom, including carnations, chrysanthemums, and crocuses! Their bonus is their longevity. Cut properly and kept in fresh water, they’ll last through any holiday festivity. Plus, the add a nice warm seasonal touch. The winter season also has some great flower options, including pansies, jasmine, snowdrops, violets, holly (for structure) and especially poinsettias! The color options are endless, but I love nice earthy tones for Thanksgiving and cooler colors into December around the home to add a fresh holiday feel to tables, desks, or counters.
Another nice touch is accenting white flowers like snowdrops and white carnations with spots of red roses or amaryllis.
#2 – Seasonal vignettes

This fall-themed vignette greets guests as they enter the home and consists of both seasonal and everyday items making it perfectly understated and easy to update with each season.
#3 – The holiday gallery wall
I began building this frame wall late this summer, and I really love how things are coming together, even though I haven’t ordered photos from our latest sessions to fill the frames, yet! Like most women, I have trouble resisting the siren call of the dollar section at Target – when I happened to stumble upon this roll of wired greenery, I thought it would be the perfect way to be able to sneak in a bit of early holiday decorating that would still blend with my glass pumpkins (another Target dollar bin find, though I think I did pay in the $3 range for each of them). The copper wire LED lights were added to my collection last year, and have already found a way to be out a good portion of the year. Now to get those photos ordered and frames filled!
#4 – Seasonal garlands
Kim of Apple of Out Eye Photography says,
Have the kids make the decor! Some of my most treasured decorations are the banners and ornaments that my children have made around the holidays. Cost effective, too!
Amy of My Letter-Sized Life says,
I love fall! And once October rolls around the signs of autumn begin to pop up both outside my house and in! My kitchen sports a hint of fall year round because I love its beautifully warm colors, but I decided to turn it up a notch in honor of my favorite season with this simply, yet fun leaf garland. To make this I simply cut leaf shapes from autumn colored patterned papers using my Silhouette Cameo. Then I used my sewing machine to create the strands of leaves, sewing over one, pulling the threads and sewing over top of the next. The strands are then tied around a small branch and hung from the wall.
#5 – A simple holiday wreath
This wreath is made from vintage inspired papers and a feather diecut from Jenni Bowlin, then I kept it simple with a plain burlap bow.
