December has arrived and with it comes the Holidays. It doesn’t matter what you celebrate or how big or small your budget, bringing the holidays into your home feels good this time of year. In many families a Christmas tree has become an important part of holiday tradition. This year we worked hard to find some less traditional options that take on a variety of shapes and forms. We also scoured the web to bring you the most stunning and creative holiday decor that is fit to adorn your foyer, table, mantle, or wherever you deem worthy. Begin a new holiday tradition with your family and design something together! Cheers!
Vintage wood slats offer color and texture while heart appliques give it a personal touch. A great idea for small spaces and people who love DIY projects.
I absolutely love this idea! It is an excellent space saver or just a fun twist on your mundane book cases.
An old school shiny tinsel tree adds a touch of glamour to a simple room. Try this is silver, white, or a bright hue like fuschia for a pop of color. Wrap your packages in a shade of that color and dress with a contrasting ribbon to complete the look.
A playful take on a tree and a great idea if you don’t have a chandelier over your table. All you need is a branch, ornaments, and fishing line.

Put your old cupcake tower to good use. Combine household accents with a few holiday accessories for a festive homemade display.
Make a statement by grouping together candle holders and vases. Try varying heights to give your display visual interest. Add an organic element such as faux berry branches for contrast.
Embrace simplicity. These tables are elegant because they aren’t overdone.
Entice your senses by incorporating potpourri, cinnamon sticks, or scented candles.
Select a color palette and use it for your indoor and outdoor decorations.

Who said stockings have to be hung from a mantle? Utilize the surfaces you have efficiently and creatively. This piano is a perfect example!
