Holiday Decorating Inspiration

Just before bringing down my decorations from the attic I spent a short time browsing the internet looking at holiday decorating ideas. I came across these beautiful pictures which could be incorporated into any decor for the season.

Adding some colorful florals in a simple arrangement is very effective.  

A great idea.  A festive outline and little meaningful treasures are added to it for something fun and colorful.
All the trimmings

A mini tree or other similar plant can be used to hang ornaments from.
Reflected glory

Colored glassware with facets and mirrored pieces can add sparkle and reflection and shine to a setting.

I love candles and votives and this is a pretty way to bring in a tree into a space.
Same but different

A way to take the decorating into other spaces within a home. Isn' t that sack adorable and the cute idea to hang a stocking from the nightstand is another way decorate a kid's bedroom, perhaps even have the stocking stuffed (although that might be breaking with tradition).

I like the ornament centerpiece, the treasure tree and of course, the votive tree. I certainly could not narrow it down to one. Do any of these inspire you? Which one is your favorite?

Tomorrow I will be sharing my Christmas mantle with you. Please do stop by again.

  1. I love that Christmas tree art idea! Now I want to make something similar. Wheels are turning... :)

  2. Can't wait to see your Christmas mantle! I've been all about editing this year. I didn't even use a few things that I've gotten out in the past - we just don't have the room for it and Sheila is VERY hands on these days so I also didn't want anything to happen to some of them items. Candles, some greens, so candy canes can all go a long way - at least I'm hoping!!

  3. Lisa, I love the 2nd Christmas tree art! They're all splendid ideas, I might just try one myself. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Such great inspiration here! I really like the white with the pops of color as well as the outlined tree filled with special keepsakes.

  5. So many wonderful holiday decor ideas, Lisa. Love the Christmas tree treasures idea the most! What a fresh and original idea! Definitely inspiring.
