‘Tis the season to be jolly and ’tis the season to decorate! Seriously… who doesn’t love decorating their home for the holidays? There’s just something about a home filled with beautiful decorations that makes me feel like a kid again. The Christmas nostalgia is real!
I’m so excited to let y’all know that I’ve teamed up with a fabulous set of lady bloggers to bring you a Home for the Holidays Blog Hop. There’s so much beautiful holiday inspo going on in this group of gals. I hope that you’re able to gather a number of ideas for your Christmas decor. Also, be sure to pin and share your favorite ideas along the way! If you scroll down to the bottom of this post, you can find a list of all the participating bloggers.
And now, welcome to The Holtz House: Holiday Edition…
Believe it or not, I actually started dreaming up my theme for this year’s Christmas decor this past summer. I know… it sounds totally crazy! But- summer flea markets are a great place to snag some awesome items to incorporate within your holiday decorating. When I stumbled upon this green tackle box pictured above, it served as my inspiration. This year, I decided to go with a traditional red and green theme with vintage touches. No sparkle and bling… just neutral colors and natural woods.
When I attended the Urban Farmgirl Main Street Market in September, I stumbled upon this gorgeous vintage sled and knew that it had to be mine. It was perfection once I added the ice skates and decorative Christmas swag. I originally wanted to add this to our front porch decor, but I liked it so much that I decided I would get to look at it a whole lot more indoors. 😉
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa-la-la-la, la-la-la-la! Christmas decorating season is officially here! This is seriously the most wonderful, magical time of year. I just LOVE decorating our home for the holidays. If I could pull it off, every single room in our house would be decorated. I’m not quite at that expert level yet… but maybe one day!
I was looking to incorporate more Christmas decor into our kitchen, and I loved the idea of tying wreaths onto all the backs of our chairs. Real boxwood wreaths can be a bit pricey, so for my fellow pals on a budget, this DIY project is just for you.
Here’s what you’ll need to create DIY Mini Christmas Wreaths…
- Wired Boxwood Garland – I purchased mine from Target Dollar Spot but here’s a similar option from Amazon
- Ribbon of your choice
When I heard about Chip and Joanna’s new Target line, Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia, it was with mixed feelings. I was absolutely stoked, because I’m completely obsessed with Target, Magnolia Market and of course, Fixer Upper. So what is there not to love? Well… for me, I was devastated to find out that the official launch of the line in stores and online is November 5, 2017. Unfortunately for me, I will be out of the country on vacation for that whole week. NOOOOO!!!
Thankfully, I have an amazing mama that loves a good hunt, and she’ll be standing in as my designated shopper. (She’s the one who deserves all the credit for helping me to build my entire Rae Dunn collection.) So I’ve scoured Target’s website and reviewed the whole Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia line so that I could narrow it down to my must-have items. This will be the wish list I’ll be providing to my mom to hit up our local Target store bright and early on Sunday, November 5.
Here’s everything you need from Chip and Jo’s New Target Line…
