It’s so hard to believe that December is already here. The beginning of December is usually when I start decorating our house for Christmas. I try to pick up a few holiday decor pieces each year to refresh our Christmas decor. It’s fairly easy to give your home a Christmas makeover. Here are a few of my favourite easy holiday decor ideas to decorate your home for Christmas.
Abbott Pine Cone Stocking Holder
I love this Pine Cone Stocking Holder from Abbott. It really adds a rustic look to my holiday decor. This stocking holder is dark brown and made of cast iron so it’s fairly heavy. It contrasts beautifully with a red stocking and would look great on your fireplace mantel. You can find Abbott Collection products at Toronto stores including The Fairmont Store, Linen Chest, Bergo Designs, Yummi Candles, the Art Gallery of Ontario Shop, The New Leaf, L’Atelier, Bell Epoque, La Di Da Boutique, Old Faithful Shop, Trinity Gallery, Byob Cocktail Emporium, Redletter, Essence of Living, and Absolutely North.
Embroidered Merry & Jolly Mini Pillow from Pier 1
This Embroidered Merry & Jolly Mini Pillow, $39.95, from Pier 1 adds an immediate pop of holiday decor to your living room. In festive red and white, this pillow is handcrafted, with the front cover made from cotton and acrylic. This holiday pillow features a hidden zipper and is 14″ x 14″ so it can be placed in front of larger pillows for a holiday look. Purchase this holiday cushion at Pier 1 online or in store.
Coasters froom Reclaimed Print Co.
Here’s another holiday decor item I loved at the One of a Kind Christmas Show, which is on in Toronto until December 3, 2017. These holiday coasters, which are hand cut by Reclaimed Print Co., will put a smile on your guests’ faces. The holiday coasters are $10 each or 4 for $35. Find Reclaimed Print Co. at Booth A47 at the One of a Kind Christmas Show or purchase the coasters from Reclaimed Print Co. online.
Lewis Plaid Throw from Bouclair
Red and black plaid is a classic Christmas material. The gorgeous, yet affordable Lewis Plaid Throw, $39.99, from Bouclair will add a festive look and comfort to your living room or den. The 100% polyester throw is 50″ x 60″ and can be purchased online.
Snow People Double Doormat from Abbott
If you’re looking for easy holiday decor ideas, the Snow People Double Doormat from Abbott will put your visitors in a holiday mood upon arriving at your home. If you have double doors like we do, it can be hard to find a holiday mat that fits – that’s why this mat is great. Plus, the mat features a winter theme vs. a Christmas theme, which means you can use it through the winter months instead of just at Christmas. Made from coir fibre, this rug can be maintained simply by brushing or shaking it. Purchase this mat at stores that carry the Abbott Collection including Linen Chest, The Fairmont Store, Absolutely North, Yummi Candles, the Art Gallery of Ontario Shop, Essence of Living, The New Leaf, L’Atelier, Bergo Designs, Bell Epoque, Redletter, La Di Da Boutique, Old Faithful Shop, Byob Cocktail Emporium and Trinity Gallery.
