Confession time: Even though we immerse ourselves in the holidays every year and style numerous Christmas scenes for our catalogs, we’re still guilty of spending hours (yes, hours) poring over holiday decorating eye-candy on Instagram and Pinterest. We’re constantly searching for new takes on stringing lights, unheard-of ways to use garlands and just how over-the-top you can go with piling ornaments on the Christmas tree. When it comes to holiday inspiration, the more the merrier, right? So, with that spirit in mind, we asked some of our favorite bloggers to share their unique takes on decorating with our ornament sets.
“Ornaments are gorgeous decor as well as the perfect party favor for your guests! Add an ornament to each place setting, and finish with a simple ribbon or gift tag. These ornaments give lots of glitz and glamour while keeping the style very neutral – it’s the best of both worlds!”
“I love using my ornaments as an unexpected element in areas of my home that do not have a lot of space, where I still want to add a holiday touch. I love the soft pastels mixed with the sequins and gold. Perfect for my netural-glam space.”
“Use elements typically found in a table centerpiece, like eucalyptus leaves and ornaments, and elevate the focal point up to the chandelier. These ornaments are the perfect modern spin on classic holiday decor. We love that this fresh statement piece will last the whole season!”
“Get creative with where you hang your ornaments! We have a centerpiece in our dining room in lieu of a chandelier. It's where my children and I gather every month to decorate for each holiday. Each ornament is a work of art, and so many people stop to look at them more closely since they are displayed in a non-traditional way!”
“Think outside the box when using seasonal decor. Ornaments in a bowl are beautiful and so simple. These neutral metallics can go with any decor you bring in for the holidays for years to come!”
“We love entertaining and even more so during the holidays. For a recent weekend brunch, we filled Jean’s antique cut glass punch bowl with the French Blue and White Linen ornaments for a stunning centerpiece. We started there and added mercury glass votives at each place setting with an ornament as a place card holder. We absolutely love how it turned out!”
