The Best Holiday Hosting Tips To Make Your Life Way Easier

Blush Accents

Twas the year of blush pink. Unsurprisingly, trendy gals are swapping their red ribbons, buntings and blooms for something something rosier...and much less expected.

Get the look: Ferns Fairytale Silk Ribbon (from $13) and see more holiday inspiration at Monika Hibbs.

Whiteout Trees

Three cheers for 1950s nostalgia: flocked, or “snow"- frosted, trees are back (as are all-white lights and ornaments), and they're about to turn your living room into a winter wonderland.

Get the look: Sno-Bond Christmas Tree Snow Flock ($38) and see more holiday inspiration at French Country Cottage.

Cotton Everywhere

Call it the Joanna Gaines effect—these earthy, snow-like blooms are weaving their way into wreaths, mantle garlands and table arrangements.

Scandinavian Tabletops

Scandi-stoneware is having a major moment—which for holiday translates to chic, neutral tablescapes with minimalist decor schemes (bring on the tiny tree garnishes!).

Get the look: Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Stoneware Dinner Plate ($6) and see more holiday inspiration at Bo Bedre.

Candy Cane Crafts

Be still our Nutcracker-loving hearts: These holiday mascots are being flipped on their head—literally—and given new life as candle holders, focal points in evergreen arrangements and our favorite: place card holders.

Get the look: Old Time Candy Candy Canes ($2 for 12) and see more holiday inspiration at Camille Styles.

Wicker Tree Skirts

If you want your holiday tree to say, “welcome to my modern farmhouse,” consider a warm wicker tree collar or woven basket in lieu of traditional skirting.

Get the look: Crate & Barrel Abaca Tree Collar ($70) and see more holiday inspiration at Dreamy Whites.

Ice Vessels

It doesn’t get much prettier than wintergreens and berries frozen in ice. We’re especially loving this magical DIY as a Champagne cooler or as front porch hurricane lanterns.

Pops Of Black

Look for this moody hue to pepper holiday stripes, tartans, ginghams and ribbons this season. The effect is edgy and classic, all at the same time.

Get the look: Loon Peak Tartan Napkins ($23 for 6) and see more holiday inspiration at Table + Dine.

Bayleaf Greenery

Pines and firs are mainstays for runners, garlands and wreaths, but we’re all about the trend toward leafier holiday greenery—especially fragrant bayleaf.

Get the look: Williams-Sonoma Bay Leaf Garland (from $48) and see more holiday inspiration at Craftberry Bush.

Chandelier “trees”

Trees are no longer the only place to hang your ornament collection from, guys: look to your chandelier as a whimsical focal point cum Christmas disco ball.

Get the look: kat + annie Blush Ornament Set ($9 for 25) and see more holiday inspiration at Aunt Peaches.

Understated And Organic

On the heels of hygge, many trendsetters are adapting a less-is-more mentality this year. Think simple winter greens in a pitcher, and a smattering of pinecones from the yard. Chic, indeed.
