A simple touch to make your home feel cozy and festive is adding decorative blankets and pillows in your living room and bedrooms. Stick with holiday colors for your throws and find pillow cases or festive pillows to place in your rooms to add to your holiday aesthetic. Although simple, these decor items will tie the entire room together creating a festive feeling.

Dark green ferns, pine, juniper, and evergreens are all in season during the holidays, so they definitely add to the celebratory feel of the season. Use these greens around your home by adding wreaths to your doors, garland along staircases and across the mantle, and bushels for the centerpiece of your dining table. Put additional holiday plants around your home for festive yet cozy home decor options.

Adding holiday lights throughout your home can truly transform your space, giving off a calm Christmas vibe, or a celebratory, festive feel! If you want a calmer, more sophisticated atmosphere in your home, use white Christmas lights. If you want a more outgoing and fun feel, use colorful lights throughout your home. Add lights along staircases, around columns, across the mantle, around the outside of your home, and of course, on the Christmas tree! Lights will truly transform your space and even make it look Christmas-y from the outside!

To ensure the heart of your home feels festive, adding kitchen accessories such as holiday hand towels, dish towels, placemats, and rugs will be great additions to the decor in your home. Create a coffee or hot cocoa station with festive mugs and sweet treats! Add small holiday decorations such as small wintery trees or snowmen on your kitchen counters, breakfast nook, or kitchen table. Although small, these decor options will ensure you maintain your festive flow throughout your entire home.
