Welcome to our Holiday Home Tour of 2021! Last year I kept the decor more neutral and modern but this year I was feeling a pull to add in more traditional colors and vintage pieces. I typically reuse a lot of what I have but like to add in a few new ornaments and ribbon. Ribbon is such an inexpensive way to set a color scheme and feel for your holiday decor. This year I found this reindeer floral black ribbon at Michael’s and used it as my inspiration piece. I loved how it had a vintage but classic feel to it. I also found vintage paper accordion ornaments and paper snowflakes online at H & M Home back in September and ordered them right away (they sold out by October). I found similar ones at Amazon that you can find here. For the first time this year I used wooden cranberry garland strands and loved the warm color they added to the tree amongst all the neutrals. I also added in my fluffy swifter garland which I talked about last year here.
I layered two faux garland greenery together (using twisty ties from my produce bags) asymmetrically over the mantle, placing candle sticks on the over side to balance it. I also did a swag of wool garland balls and wooden cranberries to tie in the Christmas tree. I secured everything using small 3M hooks so I can take them down without ruining the mantle.
I styled our built-in shelves using items I had as well as a few thrifted pieces and a few new pieces. I thrifted this ceramic pheasant for $5, spray painted it gold and added in some faux greenery.
I also picked up the blue Chinoiserie plate for $5 and loved how it added a pop of color and a traditional, formal feel. I’ve had my eye on these vintage bells for a few years and finally ordered them this year. I love them so much and can use them all year round for shelf or entry table styling. I added a ribbon to one of them just to give it a little extra touch.
On the other side, I added some hand-me-down brass candlesticks from my in-laws and layered in some swapped out artwork for some inexpensive vintage winter printable art I found on etsy here.
I placed some faux greenery in a brass vase I had and placed a new chinoiserie ornament next to it to tie in the plate on the other shelf.
I dressed up our entry table using dried hydrangeas I clipped from our yard in the early fall. The green and rosy hues are a subtle way to add in holiday color and texture. New this year is the brass advent wreath. I wanted to add in more classic traditions of lighting a candle each Sunday in Advent.
I found this simple faux cedar garland from Studio McGee x Target this year and decided to use it to dress up our banister. I attached it with zip ties and tied an off white chiffon ribbon to cover them.
Hope you enjoyed the tour! Stay tuned for Part 2. I will list all sources below!
