Our Holiday Home Decor

Happy holidays!! Man, do I love this time of year. One of the best parts, in my opinion, is decorating the house for Christmas and leaving it up until after New Years. Let's let the cozy season last as long as it possibly can!

I haven't shared as many photos of the house on here as I thought I would have by now — so is this an official home reveal?? For a little trip down memory lane, here's the house when we started our renovation and 6 months later. Four years later, I'm happy to look back on these posts as a reminder of the progress we've made! (We even have that mantle I was talking about).

Most of our holiday decor has been collected over the years; I've picked up a bit more in the last couple of years now that we have a house. I'm a huge sucker for beautiful tablescapes, so I'm hoping to find a full set of Christmas dishes once our kitchen renovation is complete. I looooove these holiday plates from Anthropologie and hope they continue carrying a version of these when I'm ready for a set.

We affectionately refer to our huge Santa canvas as "glitter Santa", and I've been toting this guy around from dorm rooms to apartments to home. It's so extra, I love it haha. I found this adorable mushroom candle this year, and it fits the vibe perfectly.

Another thing we've been collecting over the years are holiday vinyls! We have a few now, but we're always looking to add to our stash. My favorites of the ones we own are David Bazan's Dark Sacred Night and Kacey Musgraves' A Very Kacey Christmas. I'd love to hear if you have a favorite Christmas album that comes on vinyl. 🎄

For our gift wrap this year, we're going the 'brown paper packages tied up with string' route. It's cozy & cute! Our stockings are old from Anthropologie (similar here), and our little red stocking is for Boris's (our cat)!

I'm also happy to report we have a great place to display *part of!* Austin's nutcracker collection. He's been receiving these from his grandmother since he was little, and they're incredibly special to us. We're having to keep a close eye on Boris to make sure he's not trying to play with them - ha.

Ending this year feeling grateful and looking forward to a few slow-paced days as we approach 2024. Happy holidays to you & yours; thanks for reading. xx
