Lovely Holiday Decorating Ideas to Collect Now!

It may be 80-something degrees, but wintry cheer is ahead! Lovely Holiday Decorating Ideas to Collect features pretty images of Christmas decked halls across a range of design styles. Whether you admire French farmhouse or American country style, bet there’s something to ignite your creativity. I’m not trying to rush you into holiday spirit (ahem…there are worse things, kittycats) or ruin your autumn vibes. At one point in time, I was consumed with “back to school” and “pumpkin patch” everything in late summer. Now? It’s “how can I somehow prevent inevitable mid-December overwhelm?” Hahaha.

Lovely Holiday Decorating Ideas to Collect Before it Snows

Did you know a fair amount of folks collect Christmas decorating ideas the whole year through? Yep. If you have holiday boards on Pinterest with trees, holiday wreaths, and festive tablescapes, it is a great way to organize all of the inspo.

Find my own dedicated boards HERE and also HERE and HERE.

Curly Branches & White Lights!

What an enchanting way to bring nature indoors and create a woodland feel with sparkle. I can imagine this idea feeling very chic in a certain style home and rustic in another!

I can also imagine young children loving the idea of an installation like this on their bedroom ceiling. Who doesn’t want to fall asleep to little snowflakes or sparkly lights (on a timer?) dripping from the sky?

Festive Bold Colorful Christmas Wreath

Have a stash of vintage Christmas bulb ornaments like me? Aren’t the pink ones glorious? I love these wreaths so much because they feel timeless and whimsical. No two will ever be the same!

If you find yourself fresh outta vintage, there’s plenty of old fashioned contenders HERE and:

Vintage Style Ornaments…hello pretty Christmas indeed.

Handmade Paper Snowflake Decorations

I’ll never tire of them – how ’bout you? It is so relaxing to cut them, and if you have been saving paper grocery bags for this purpose…good job!

BONUS TIP: When your room is decorated for the holidays, sit on the floor and point your camera up for a lovely alternative perspective we rarely capture.

Build a Fort & Invite the Kids or Pets to Cozy on Down

Did you catch my post about THE HOLIDAY movie? I’ll never get over that beautiful fort, and it stirs up all sorts of childhood memories. I think a fancy fort is pretty perfect around the holidays!

Don’t you love the suspended stars inside it? What kids (of all ages) and pets wouldn’t be thrilled to snuggle and listen to Christmas music under the stars?!

Mass the Brass Candlesticks

Aren’t you glad I’m reminding you of this stuff in August so you can hunt for more vintage or not so vintage brass candle holders for the holidays?

No fireplace mantel? Not a problem. They are perfect massed on a tabletop, dresser, shelf or kitchen counter!

Create a Fresh Christmas Wreath!

Have you ever tried to make your own?

I think I like petite wreaths even more than the great big ones!

Le Moulin Bregeon

My favorite wreaths that I have made are a mix of fresh greenery and faux so don’t feel like you must be a purist.

Real Candles Glowing at Christmas

Maybe not the most realistic idea if there are rambunctious kids and animals racing around, but for an adult get-together…ahhhhhhh!

Elegant White Christmas With Roses

Since I can never get enough white roses in my life, I see no reason to ignore them during the holidays even though red are perfectly acceptable.

Birch in Buckets

If you have a cottage or country style home, I bet these would look perfect on a porch or even near a fireplace.

Christmas Pinks & Pretty Pastel Holiday Decor

If you decorate your trees even remotely as thoughtfully and thoroughly as this, I bow to you. Truly. My mom and sisters have the gift, whereas I struggle.

Even if pink only comes out at Christmas, this is a wonderful way to add feminine romance to the season.

Dress Up a Tuba or Vintage Instrument

Because who wouldn’t smile if they walked in and saw this:

(Now you know what to do with that vintage violin you have stashed away in the attic!)

Tone on Tone at Home for the Holidays

Not everyone feels merry around the color red, and here’s proof positive, it’s okay to skip it inside…

and out:

These plushy logs made me smile!

Collect a Christmas China Pattern

It’s fun! Plus, no one knows what to buy for you – choose a pattern and let ’em know.

Have a Window Box?

Who knew that a simple red bow could pack such a punch?

Suspend Three Mini Wreaths

Remember what I was saying earlier about mini wreaths? They can be so cute in threes!

Childhood Reminders at Christmas

Toys are not something we have lying around, but when I see this, I think I need to change that!

Simplicity of Ornaments in a Bowl

Is this the oldest, easiest holiday trick in the book? Definitely. Gather favorite Christmas tree ornaments and display them simply.
