Some Festive Decorations to Fill Your Home With Holiday Cheer

Some Festive Decorations to Fill Your Home With Holiday Cheer

Deck the halls with seasonal trimmings that are classic and a little kitschy.

However you celebrate the season, these stockings, ornaments, candles, and more will get you into the holiday spirit.

Is there anything more festive than a tea towel? 

Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Tea Towel
Introduce holiday spirit to the kitchen with our vibrant printed tea towels.

The only thing that would improve this flamingo ornament is a little pair of sunglasses, but even without, she's perfect. 

Faux Fur Flamingo Ornament
Bring some tropical flair to your holiday decor with our fluffy faux-fur flamingo.

Cranberry and popcorn garlands have their place, but these adorable woodland creatures engaged in the time-honored tradition of a snowball fight make for a nice update. 

Snowball Fight Felt Garland
A sweet addition to the festive season at home, this 72" garland is made up of woodland critters in the midst of a snowball fight.

This candle brings the candy cane vibes without making your living room feel like the Santa Claus kiosk at the mall. 

Lex Pott Candy Cane Twist Candle
What it is: A spectacular candle that utilizes the flexibility of wax to create a continuous design that joins two candlesticks. What it does: Perfect for elevating your table or mantle, Lex Pott used the liquid state of wax as the starting point in this project.

A more architectural take on the standard star that also functions like a festive fidget-spinner.

John Kostick Foldable Star Sculptures
John Kostick’s Foldable Stars (1965) began as models of mathematical concepts, particularly the structural-relationship principle known as tensegrity (or tensional integrity).

A lovely centerpiece for your holiday cookie tablescape that also smells vaguely festive. 

Carousel Set with Baies / Berries 190g Candle - Limited Edition
Like planets around the sun, the carousel’s golden charms revolve around the flame.

Think potpourri, but make it chic, vaguely mysterious, and surprisingly sensual!

Boy Smell's Holiday Bundle
Three individual candles made of coconut and beeswax blend with braided cotton wick, in dyed glass tumblers.

Fairy lights aren't always as subtle as you'd imagined, but these cast the correct amount of gentle holiday glow. 

One Step Timers Dew Drop Wired LED Lights (Set of 2)
Festive fairy lights.  Delicate dew drop fairy lights make every room feel more magical. They're a pretty alternative to standard string lights—and the wire is bendable and moldable, giving them more structure than typical string lights, too.

It's a classic for a reason! 

A Charlie Brown Christmas - Green Vinyl
One of the most popular and beloved holiday albums of all time, now available on collectible green vinyl!  ...

The rare holiday ornament that you can keep up year round. 

Pat Kim Design for Areaware Ornaments
Pat Kim’s wooden ornaments are small, colorful forms adapted from larger scale designs found in his work. Keeping different arrangements of them around his studio, they often act as inspiration for new design ideas.

Forgo the fussiness of a traditional tree skirt and allow your tree to have some dignity with this sensible alternative. 

Wicker Basket Tree Skirt, Gray
Complete your tree with this distinctive basket skirt, hand-woven from natural rattan for a folk-inspired alternative to traditional fabric skirts. It measures 10” in height, 24” in diameter at its top, and 28” in diameter at its base.

This isn't quite a Lenox  Christmas village in aesthetics, but it is similar in spirit.  

Farmhouse Pottery Wood Winter Village
It takes a village. Forward our mail: We’re moving into this pint-sized winter village for the holiday season (if only we had a shrinking machine!).

Do NOT forget the front of your house, which deserves the same amount of cheer as the inside!

Faux Sumac Wreath & Garland
A subtle, warm alternative to traditional pine holiday decor. Made of faux botanicals, you will not have to sweep errant twigs from off the banister, floor, or wherever they manage to escape.

No room for a big tree with all the trimmings? This tabletop number is pre-lit! And it's cute!

Terrain Faux Pre-Lit LED Alpine Tabletop Tree
Our essential for effortless holiday decorating, this faux tree arrives pre-lit with warm white LEDs, perfect for holiday tabletop decorating.

Sometimes it's nice for the decor to whisper instead of scream.

Cody Foster Modern Holiday Bottlebrush Trees (Set of 6)
A rainbow of pines. Our idea of a winter wonderland? A whole forest of these rainbow-hued pines. They’re coming in colors as far as the eye can see (we can’t stop staring at the rose ones). Plus, with their bottlebrush needles and wooden bases, they have modern looks to spare.

More garland! It's felt! 

Global Goods Partners Holiday Felt Garland
Felted and festive. Deck the halls, trim the tree, line the stairway, spruce up the mantel—this festive garland is ready to add a festive touch anywhere you please. And since it’s made from felted wool, it’ll help you ring in the season next year (and the year after that…).

The first rule of Christmas ornaments is that they should be fun. 

Cody Foster Vintage-Inspired Glass Food Ornaments
For festive food lovers.

If you're allergic to red and green but are not immune to holiday cheer, these are a fair compromise.

West Elm Stacked Wood Trees
Bring a rustic holiday decoration into your home with these wonderful stacked wood trees.  ...

Linen is unexpected for a stocking, but that's what makes these stand out. 

Celina Mancurti Handmade Linen Stocking With Monogram Option
Hung by the chimney with flair. Go simpler with your stockings—this grey linen beauty is handsewn exclusively for Food52 by Celina Mancurti in Tampa, Florida. The heel is finished with a delicate navy stitch and the stocking is lined with a contrasting cream-colored cotton.

Wooden candlesticks are a nice, traditional alternative to the terrazzo and chunky ceramics and feel special. 

Farmhouse Pottery Essex Traditional Wooden Candlesticks
Candle companions. Give your candlesticks a handmade home with these lovely wooden gems. Each one was lathe-turned in Pennsylvania from sustainably sourced white ash, then finished off with organic milk paint.

These aren't subtle—but this is the time of year to lean into kitsch, just a little. 

Hue Trees (5) by Cody Foster
Make any room a winter wonderland with this set of five glass trees available in various colors.  Set of five Glass/metal Imported Differing sizes measures as follows: Extra small: 3"Dia. x 7.5"T. Small: 3.25"Dia. x 9"T. Medium: 3"Dia. x 8.5"T. Large: 4.25"Dia. x 11.5"T. Extra large: 4"Dia.
