10 Minimalist Holiday Decor Ideas That You Can Do in a Flash – Wit & Delight


Have you ever wondered how to decorate your home for the holidays while maintaining a sense of simplicity and modernism? Don’t get me wrong, I love the over-the-top quality of the holidays and the nostalgic magic of Christmas because deep down it makes my 12-year-old heart very happy. But as I get older and work toward curating the life I want, my home becomes filled with nicer, more thought out furniture and even more meaningful belongings. This year, in an attempt to make my home a little less cluttered I opted for simple gold and silver holiday decorations with an earthy touch. I worked with our content manager Francine to pull together some really fun and unique ways to decorate your home for the holidays. A lot of these minimalist, even abstract art holiday decor ideas are so easy, you can do them in a flash. How are you decorating your home this year for the holidays?

7. Monochrome dinner table // are you hosting a dinner party and hoping to impress your friends and family? This is easy, keep it simple and stick to classic monochrome colors, and of course, add a little bit of Christmas tree foliage to the table to finish off the look.

10. Floating greenery vases // I love this idea! You can purchase these water bottles and white candlesticks at Michaels and then add in extra trimmed off tree branches to complete this look. This is a creative yet inexpensive way to spruce up your home and add a little candlelit warmth for the holidays.

    There aren’t a lot of surfaces in my home, and as we’re renting I can’t really mount things. I’m excited to try hanging light wreaths using Command hooks, however! Thanks for the idea!

    The wall tree is a genial idea, minimalist or lack of space, it’s very practical and always interesting to see. How would you make the greenery in the clear ornaments stay fresh? I guess you just have to replacing them the entire season?
