I love decorating for the holidays but I do get overwhelmed by the number of holiday decor ideas out there! I wanted to pull together some of the holiday decor ideas I’ve saved over the years, to give myself (and you) a little inspiration as I decorate my own home. Do I do tinsel again? A tree with just ribbons? What about a super simple naked greenery situation? Or how about all of the above?

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


Gwen – @themakerista (shown above)

Hello, 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 coming through thanks to the way she applied it in small groupings.

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

If you want cozy but elegant holiday vibes with loads of color, pattern, and general cheeriness, this is the place to look!

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

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

You know I love everything Matilda does, but there is something extra special about how she layers garland and other holiday motifs into her spaces. Her sister-in-law is florist Willow Crossley—she also has amazing tips for tablescapes and so much more!
