Favorite Holiday Decor

Well friends, now that Halloween is over I'm allowed to talk about Christmas, right? I am full-blown in the mood to decorate and am so excited about it that I've been listening to Christmas music 24/7 and have been watching all of the cheesy Hallmark movies (they're so bad but so good). Anyways, I ordered most of these things shown below last week to add a little cheer to our house. The stuff I ordered from Target came literally ONE day later in the mail... I was in shock. I know that this year looks different for everyone considering we're going through a pandemic and we're not even sure what we're doing for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but all I know is that our house will be festive AF.

We're finally getting to the point where we'll be putting down rugs and pillows and decorating the house so adding these bits of cheer is really going to make it feel extra cozy. It feels like it's taken so long to get to where we are in our house renovation, but I have to stop and remind myself that we've made so much progress over the last year and a half. I'll do a separate post on the things we still need to finish, but for now I hope you enjoy these adorable (and affordable!) Christmas items. 

1. Faux Pine Wreath // I saw this in store not too long ago and thought that it looked super real. Still waiting to receive this, so I may or may not keep it once it gets here. In the past we've bought a real boxwood wreath from Trader Joe's so we might end up doing that if this doesn't work out.

2. Plaid Kitchen Towel // Yes, I'm obsessed with patterns and colors so when I saw this kitchen towel I had to have it... and guess what? It's even cuter in person. I bought two - can't beat the price for $3 each (probably should've bought more, haha).

3. Plaid Fringe Napkins // I was on the Crate & Barrel website looking for glass candle hurricanes when I spotted these back in October (don't judge!). Again, they're plaid and I love the colors. They unfortunately don't come in set but I ended up buy six.

4. Mini Striped Bowls // Love these for food prep or even snacking. They're striped, so of course I had to have them (comes in red and green).

5. Tree Collar // We haven't put up a tree yet - we'll most likely go cut one down like we've done in the past, but I'm loving the look of these basket tree collars. This isn't available for shipping in my area, but I might go see if they have it at my local Target store. If not, Terrain also has beautiful ones.

6. Santa Mugs // I've been wanting these for years, so I finally ended up buying them. They'll be perfect for hot cocoa or coffee for years to come (and they were on sale!). Also, if you're looking to save a little more money, these ones are cheaper and just as cute!

7. Striped Mixing Bowls // These match the mini bowls and they also remind me of Cornishware (which I love). I got them in both the red and green because 'tis the season to be baking.

8. Fir & Firewood Candle // While I don't personally own this candle, I can imagine it smells amazing. I'm all for woodsy and musky scents, so this sounds right up my alley. 

9. Bell Bottle Opener // Unfortunately no drinking for me this Christmas, but if you're in need of a festive bottle opener, this is it!

Other items that caught my eye:

If you're looking to get some new Christmas ornaments these ones are adorable (I like the modern multi colors).

Rifle Paper Co. has the best selection of Christmas cards. I love these and these.

This platter is adorable and would be perfect to set Christmas cookies or other treats on.

I love the look of these classic knitted stockings... these come in a few different colors.
