Four Popular Holiday Decorations

Whether you’re hosting friends and family from out of town or spending the holidays on your own, outfitting your home with holiday decorations is a great way to create a festive and fun atmosphere. Below, we have compiled a list of a few key decor essentials to help you make your home more merry this season. 

Natural Winter Accents

Whether you choose to incorporate them in a centerpiece or craft homemade ornaments from them, natural winter accents are always in style. The wonderful thing about accents is that you can have as many of them or as few of them as you want, allowing you to completely customize the holiday cheer in your home. The following popular items lend themselves well to holiday accents:

  • Pine cones — If you live in a part of the country where they are in abundance, you can make a family trip to collect as many as you’d like. Otherwise, they are always available in craft stores, and some even have faux snow on them for an additional wintry touch.
  • Cranberries — These tart little red fruits are incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into pretty much any type of decoration. Whether you choose to string them into a garland or float them in a centerpiece, they’ll add bright elegance to your space.
  • Holly and Greenery — There are so many varieties of greenery available during the holidays, and including items like holly, mistletoe, and pine boughs in your home is not only a beautiful decor choice, but one that smells great also!

Candles

When it comes to decorating your home with elegance for the holidays, including candles is a wonderful way of creating a cozy and festive ambiance that you and your guests are sure to enjoy during those chilly winter evenings. Many people prefer holiday-scented jar candles, and these are a great way to make your home smell like a pine forest, freshly baked cookies, peppermint, or apple pie. If you prefer the appearance of candles to their smell, choose elegant colored tapers to complement your other holiday decor for a flame-free option.

Plants & Flowers

Although many people tend to focus on decorative flowers in the spring, summer, and fall, the holiday season presents the perfect opportunity to brighten your home with fresh scents and the stunning appearance of flowers. There are several types of holiday plants and flowers that are easy to care for, and many of them will last the duration of the season for months of enjoyment. With dark green leaves and bright red blooms, the poinsettia plant is the most recognizable holiday flower, and it is readily available at local stores for convenience. In addition to poinsettias, amaryllis is also a popular holiday plant, and it makes the perfect holiday centerpiece with its graceful and tall trumpet-like bloom. Of course, the ever-popular Christmas tree and pine garlands are always a simple way to decorate for the holidays.

If you prefer to go the less traditional route with your flowers this time of year, luxury roses are always in fashion. At Venus et Fleur, our Eternity™ Roses are available in a wide variety of colors and packaging, and you’re sure to find a box of our roses that suit your style in decor.

Linens

Finally, incorporating holiday linens into your decorations is a simple way to make your home more festive. If you’re hosting a large group for a family meal, using a special tablecloth and table runner with coordinating napkins and place mats will make your guests feel right at home as they sit down to eat. Likewise, throw blankets and holiday pillows are always a great way to add an element of warmth to your home as they provide cozy comfort on chilly winter nights. If you’re uncertain on styles or colors for your holiday linens, neutrals are always a safe bet — whites, creams, and tans are a great way to replicate a snowy outdoor scene in your home. If you’re someone that prefers to include more bold colors, bright red and green are always in style when paired with silver and gold.
