Balancing Traditional and Neutral Holiday Decor

Without a doubt, Christmas is my favorite holiday! It’s a time filled with love, joy and bonding. Growing up in a large family, I remember our home coming alive for Christmas. There was music, laughter and good conversations — all happening over a feast! Between the family traditions and quality time spent together, I’ve collected so many fond memories that will last a lifetime!

When it comes to home decor, I’m a neutral lover at heart. So naturally, I gravitate more towards neutral Christmas decor as well. This year has been a first for us in many ways. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first year we didn’t have a family vacation. It’s also the first year we’re decorating our courtyard for the holiday, and including more traditional Christmas colors and decor.

With my girls missing out on so many activities this year, it felt more important to make Christmas extra special and extra festive for them! When The Home Depot invited us to participate in their Holiday Style Challenge, I saw this as an awesome opportunity to have some styling fun with my girls.

Celebrating the Holidays with Santa’s Workshop Craft Space

The Holidays and winter are my absolute favorite time of the year. We love spending time as a family creating arts and crafts of every kind. I was elated when The Home Depot invited me to create a Santa’s Workshop themed space for the Holiday Style Challenge. We have been spending a ton of time at home lately and this gave me an opportunity to transform a space and create a fun environment to make memories for the season.

Ordering and Shopping

The Home Depot has everything you need to decorate your home for the holiday season and this year I chose to shop online. Their mobile app is amazingly easy to use. I used the shopping list feature to plan my project, which made adding items to my cart when it was time to order such a breeze. The mobile pick up option was the perfect solution with my busy schedule. It was also great to have decor shipped to my home in no time.

My style is typically neutral, and I love a minimalist theme but the Santa’s Workshop theme definitely had me thinking in color.

Natural Winter Wonderland Exterior Decor for the Holiday

Decorating our exterior for the holidays is a first for us this year, and I couldn’t be more excited! This festive space came together easily with a faux wreath and trees, Christmas lights and front porch essentials from The Home Depot. Let’s take a look at all of the details and I will include styling tips along the way. Then, I’ll share some nighttime photos so you all can see it sparkle!

Mixed Greenery for a Natural Look

One of my favorite elements of holiday decor is all of the greenery! I decided to keep things simple with this gorgeous faux mixed pine wreath and two artificial trees. They capture the natural, winter woodland look that I love with no upkeep, and will last for years to come!

The pretty wreath includes battery-operated lights to give our porch a magical glow in the evening, and its generous size fills out the door. Tip: When it comes to scale, make sure you choose pieces that are large enough to make a statement.

These 4-foot trees are pre-lit too! I placed them inside two galvanized resin planters for extra texture.
