How to Decorate for the Holidays

We’re feeling pretty festive around here these days with classic holiday music playing, cozy nights by the fire, and indulgent sweet treats baking in the oven. The only thing that was missing? Holiday home décor to make the season really sparkle! When living in a small city space, we’re very strategic about our décor choices and what we need to make the holidays really come alive. The most wonderful time of the year, right?

So we decided to turn to one of our favorite partners for floral and plant home décor, ProFlowers and ProPlants. We love their holiday decorating options, especially the Napa Valley Collection which we chose—the deep crimsons and natural elements felt elegant and refined to us. And best of all, it’s all natural! Which means not only does it look divine, but smells just right (cedar! pine!) too.

And because who doesn’t love a good Before and After? That’s exactly what we did—to show you (for both inside and out) a little effort and beautiful greenery can go a long way to get us in the spirit!

One of our go-to holiday combinations: classic tarten and gold. Traditional with a twist!

Gorgeous, right? We also love that most of the holiday pieces are hand-made by family-owned and operated farms in the Pacific Northwest. And ProFlowers guarantees that all flowers are fresh from the field—hand-picked from all over the world and delivered straight to your doorstep carefully nurtured in pristine conditions to ensure ideal freshness.

It’s always nice to have a set table during the holidays to showcase china, flatware, and stemware. And our suggestion for when hosting a holiday get together: a party favor is always an unexpected treat!

A bar cart is also an easy spot to turn up the festive look. Fresh flowers, sparkle faux garland, and even stockings help set the mood!

And outside…

Remember to decorate both high and low—it draws the eye over the entire expanse you want highlighted. Garland is an easy way to dress up your window or door frame, throw in a few twinkle lights and the holidays are here!
