7 Holiday Decor Ideas and Exactly What I Love About Each | Knowledge and joy

I love decorate for the holidays but I am overwhelmed by the number of holiday decor ideas out there! I wanted to gather some of the holiday decor ideas I’ve saved over the years to give myself (and you) some inspiration as I decorate my own home. Should I make tinsel again? A tree with only ribbons? How about a super simple naked vegetable situation? Or how about all of the above?

Browse a few of my favorite holiday decor ideas in the list below.


Gwen – @themakerista (shown above)

Hey, TINSEL! I used this shiny material on our trees last year and love the way Gwen decorated hers. There is a lot of dimension and a bit of pattern that comes through thanks to the way she applied it in small groupings.


Jordan Ferney

I consider Jordan the queen of colorful trees full of vintage ornaments. She can also tie a bad bow. Year after year I look forward to seeing how she remixes her large collection of bright balls on the tree.


Paula Sutton – @hillhousevintage

If you want some cozy cottage inspiration this year, this account has everything you need!


Greg – @manwithahammer

If you want cozy yet elegant holiday vibes with lots of color, pattern and general cheer, this is the place to look!


Leigh + Ben – @house_1924

This is another great way to incorporate ribbon into holiday decor! They used a variety of colors, tied them at the top of the tree, and then had each color fall down the tree. I love it.


Emily Henderson

This holiday decor example reminds me that a squat, minimally decorated tree can make the best cheery holiday focal point.


Matilda Goad

You know, I love everything Matilda does, but there’s something extra special about how she incorporates garlands and other holiday motifs into her rooms. Her sister-in-law is a florist Willow Crossley– she also has great tips for tablescapes and much more!
