Boho Holiday Home Decor // Merry & Bright
Holiday home decor in 2023 is playful! You can lean into a merry and bright look or stick to a muted color scheme, but it should bring a sense of winter whimsy either way. Topping the charts of our favorite holiday home decor is the Honeycomb Chandelier by Meri Meri. It’s the statement of the season with its classic Christmas icons made of paper and sparkly eco glitter. Plus, simple self-assembly is required, which is a fun way to get your big kids involved in the decorating for Christmas.
Another Christmas home decor piece we’re loving is this festive holiday tray which, coincidentally, looks beautiful alongside the chandelier mentioned above AND has a matching holiday doormat. For a holiday party, we’re adding more honeycomb decorations (That reindeer—OMG), peppermint candy surprise balls, and surprise Christmas trees to our carts. It’s giving merry. It’s giving bright. This is how you decorate for the holidays.
Boho Holiday Home Decor // Winter Beige
If you’re a neutral girly, then the Christmas color pops listed above may not be your cup of tea. For a more subtle holiday style, add these candy cane and peppermint swirl pillow covers to your armchairs. Give kids a scare—or adults a giggle—by keeping the Naughty / Nice lumbar pillow nearby and summon mistletoe vibes with a sign from the Bohemian Mama Home collection. No one gets you winter beige girls better than Bohemian Mama.
Speaking of winter beige, there’s a cozy sweater, sweater dress, shoulder bag, and pair of boots that you have to see. Quick, add them to your wish list (with links & sizes) or buy them now and let your partner know that Christmas is covered.
Boho Holiday Home Decor // Christmas Ornaments
As moms of humans and/or cats, our generation is getting smarter about Christmas ornaments. Knit Christmas ornaments, like these Christmas pretzels that I can’t get over, felt ornaments, and metal ornaments don’t pose the same breakage risk that the glass balls of our childhood did. Many families have moved to decorating two Christmas trees. One is set up in their office at work or in a closed-off space from the pets & kiddos. This Christmas tree can house your vintage Christmas ornament balls and keepsake Christmas tree ornaments (anyone else have a full suite of Noah’s Ark ornaments from the 90s?).
For your common space Christmas tree, consider spritzing it with this Awaken Mist as a cat deterrent (and a mood-lifter for you). You can also try placing orange peels or foil around the base of your tree to keep kitty from tree-hopping like Buddy the Elf. Then load it up with all of these kid-friendly ornaments and homemade garlands. Take a maximalist approach as you dress your bay window with fun Christmas tree ornaments or keep it streamlined with our winter beige collection.
Advent Calendars for Kids 2023
Listen, I want an Advent calendar this year. They are so fun for both kids and adults. Each morning of December, there’s a little treat. And we all deserve a little treat. When shopping for your girls’ Advent calendars, let us highly recommend the winter ballerina charm bracelet Advent calendar suitcase or enamel charm necklace Advent calendar from Meri Meri. My daughter received one from her aunt last year, and it was the biggest hit. We can’t remember what she opened on Christmas day, but we’ll never forget that adorable charm bracelet Advent calendar (and she’s already asking for another). If you’re on the hunt for an Advent calendar for boys, then look no further than the railway train Advent calendar or dinosaur Advent calendar. The dinosaur Advent calendar, especially, delivers hours of playtime for the month of December and can become a heartfelt Christmas tradition for your family to enjoy each year.
Make it a Boho Holiday Moment
Decorating for the holidays shouldn’t feel like a chore, but sometimes it does (especially if it all falls on mom). This year, intentionally set out to decorate as a family. Turn on Mariah Carey or Ben Rector, slip into some Christmas PJs, and create a winter whimsy—bright or beige—in your boho home.
*Maybe you politely suggest your kids won’t get their Advent calendars unless they help out with the holiday decorating? Just a thought.
