Last year’s Christmas season set the stage for some very early, but very welcome, holiday decorating. After our lives were shaken up and worlds turned upside down by the shock that was 2020, everyone was looking for comfort in the form of Christmas cheer. Well, the 2021 holidays are shaping up to be just the same. With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s officially appropriate to put up the tree and begin decking the halls with all the Christmas decorations we can get our hands on.
There’s really nothing more joyful than embracing the sentimentality of the season. Everywhere I go, I see twinkly lights, yards of garland, and a surprising amount of Christmas trees already giving off their warming glow. Even on social media, we can’t scroll through our feeds without a visual of how friends, family, and influencers are gearing up to celebrate. The result? A comforting, collective sense of normalcy and return to the traditions of years past.
Someone who dove in head-first and got a jump on the Christmas decorating this year was Camille. We were so inspired by her woodland-style holiday décor (you should see the front door!) that we decided to round up all of our favorite pieces to recreate the look. From stockings to ornaments to wreaths that’ll help you bring the outdoors in, you’ll find everything you need to add a little festive flair to your holiday home.
As I prepare to decorate my own home this weekend, I can only hope some of the Christmas decorations and holiday décor are still in stock. At least five of the items we planned to share in this story were sold out by the time we wrote it—so if you haven’t started, get shopping, stat. Turn on your holiday tunes, pour a little hot chocolate, and get ready to decorate your heart out. Happy Holidays!
