Christmas Home Decor + Giveaway

Happy Monday y'all! How was your weekend? The past few days were actually quite relaxing for me... and I didn't hate it! I was glad to have a low-key weekend, because once Thanksgiving passes, the month of December will be an absolute blur I'm sure. I was seriously looking at my calendar yesterday, and I was hard pressed to find a free day between November 30th and the start of the new year. Lots of fun ahead, but a very busy few weeks!!

But before we can celebrate Christmas, we have to discuss decor. I mean it's not the holidays unless my apartment looks like Santa's workshop… am I right?!

So I pulled together a big roundup of some of my favorite home decor pieces. Everything from basic decor and ornaments, to throws and pillows, to entertaining pieces and items for your bar cart. This post has it all.

There's also another HUGE giveaway at the bottom of this post. So make sure you keep scrolling all the way through!!

Pillows and Throws


When it comes to decorating my bedroom or living room, I can easily add a decorative pillow or throw to instantly change the feel of the room. I tend to not decorate my bedroom all that much, but I can add a little touch at least with an embroidered pillow or pompom blanket.

I love the options above, because there's a little something for everyone. Whether your style is traditional Christmas, looking for something for a bachelor pad or just to add a little sparkle to the room.

Home Decor


If you're looking for inexpensive decor, I usually turn to places like Etsy, Nordstrom or Target. The best part is, you can order all your decor online from these shops versus fighting the crowds at your local store.

I love little touches that can last all winter long, like decorative candles, doormats and glitter wreaths. You can also snag the Bay Leaf Wreath above from Williams-Sonomoa. This is a great option, because these wreaths are LIVE. They last for months, and you can use the bay leaves in your cooking!


To me, entertaining is the most fun aspect of the holidays. When it comes to adding decor to my bar cart, this is where I can get the most creative. I also love unique items like decorative cupcake liners, party or dessert picks and holiday coffee mugs.

Also, I'm loving the sweater koozie and FaLaLa latte coffee sleeve. I actually own this coffee sleeve and slip it over my Starbucks cups all December long!!
