Quick Christmas Decor Ideas

It's that time of year to dig out the Christmas decor, or to add pieces to a collection you might have. Being a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas decor, I love sticking with basic red, mixed metallics such as gold and silver and black accents to tie it all together. 

My living and dining combined room always gets the royal treatment decor-wise over the holidays, but our family room and kitchen tend to get overlooked. I popped into the nearest Lowe's to check our their holidays collections. They have categorized their collections into Comfort and Joy, Deck the Halls, Cold Spell and Sweet Noel, each creating a different theme for your home. Of course, I like to mix and match, so the collections caught my eye.

Wanting to add a bit of visual interest to our kitchen table where we enjoy breakfast or lunch when the whole family is home for the holidays, I purchased the gorgeous pillar candleholders along with a nutcracker to add to my growing collection.

Using a mixed bough swag from Lowe's Garden Centre wrapped in a satin ribbon I had around the house, along with a glass nutcracker ornament from the Deck the Halls collection, I added a quick and easy Christmas update to our kitchen chalkboard.

The mini spruce trees were also a find from Lowe's Garden Centre. Popped into some urns I found at a thrift store and spray painted matte black paint, they add some height and greenery to the table.

Clipping rosemary from the garden, I twisted the branch to create a ring, which I tied with some twine from Lowe's hardware section. Voila! I've create min-wreaths to decorate the place settings. Adding my own mini nutcracker ornaments add some visual interest on each plate.

Our family room gets neglected every year, but not this year! The velvet and plaid reindeer pillow from the Deck the Halls collection, along with the reversible metallic silver with a soft fur back from the Cold Spell collection add Christmas cheer to the sofa.

Wanting to jazz up our coffee table, I added the hurricane lantern, glass nutcracker ornament and gold star ornament from the Deck the Halls collection, along with a Christmas cactus found at the Lowe's Garden centre that I simply popped in a plant pot.


Can't wait to get our tree this weekend and finish decorating the rest of the house!
