Decorating for the Holidays

I am pretty low-key with my decorating at home, just a few LED starry lights on my gardenia, which gets moved inside at around Thanksgiving, a wreath on the front door imageand maybe some greenery. image

I was looking at the UK House & Garden magazine on-line and found a load of gorgeous holiday decorating ideas. A little too late for this year, but I’ve saved them to Pinterest for next year. I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you.

Totally impractical for me, but lots of fun.image

These look like they’re made with embroidery hoops.image

Totally over-the-top, but if you’ve got the space, why not!image

Something for the Feast of the Three Kings.image

Bringing the outside in. And I love the lit bookshelves.image

Who doesn’t love a Staffordshire dog?image

Simple. Ribbons, bows and brooches. image

I love the rainbow of candles, and the pink pillars!image

Do you have any holiday decorating tips that you use year after year? Or is every year a new idea?


  1. Great ideas for next year, thanks for the post!

  2. Love the lemons on the mantle. Seems that would work well for California! Merry Christmas Meg!

  3. Beautiful ideas for decorating. The bare and intricate branch is lovely. I have actually gathered & used bare branches in the past in place of a traditional green tree. Small, white lights with minimal ornaments among stark branches can be stunning.

  4. Glorious images Meg, I love to see so much inspiration for the Holidays!!

    The Arts by Karena
    The Reason for the Season!

  5. A delight! Love all these wonderful inspiring images. Happy Holidays, Meg, from an old blog friend, who tries a comeback! ; )

  6. Too late?? These ideas look as if I walked into one of those uber stylish Garden shops, Not too late if one has done little to none-- but this IS inspiration. Tweaked for any time of year. Crows will work for Mardi Gras!!
