Deck the Halls: Unique Holiday Decor and Christmas Accessories

Make it merry this holiday season with Christmas decor that has an unexpected edge. Want to deck out the mantel? A modern mix of garlands, snow globes and on-theme sculptures amp up your display. Even better? There are plenty of options for any aesthetic. Think white and silver holiday decor for a minimalist approach that has a hint of glam, or go playful with pink pine wreaths, faux fur stockings and iridescent baubles. No matter what speaks to you, illuminate your setup with tealights, taper candles or twinkle lights.

We've got the Christmas tree covered, too. If you're looking for one that suits your space, consider how much room you have to work with. Whether you have the square footage for a large pre-lit tree or want to stick with a mini one, play up the vibe with ornaments. One approach: a theme for your baubles. Keep them consistent with a unifying aesthetic like animal print or an of-the-moment color scheme. Another take? An eclectic mix of patterns and finishes. We love the way sequin ornaments contrast with matte black ones for added dimension. To anchor the look of your Christmas tree, try adding a modern skirt in faux fur or chunky knit yarn for a touch of coziness.

Hosting for the holidays? Find winter dinnerware and serving pieces that easily transition from Christmas or Hanukkah to your NYE soiree: think jewel-toned dishes, gold flatware and chic barware. For a formal affair, set out some table linens—tablecloths, runners and cloth napkins included—in a deep red hue as a nod to classic Christmas colors. Or, go with a wintry feel by opting for blue instead. Either way, elevate the presentation of small bites on seasonal platters, and set up your signature cocktail in a pitcher to keep the refills flowing.
