Have a Pinterest Perfect Holiday!

Pinterest is absolutely loaded with ideas for gorgeous decor, DIY projects, and delicious recipes – and many of these are perfect to try during the holiday season! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite pins and boards that I’ve come across while looking for inspiration this holiday season, and wanted to share these with you. 

Decorating Ideas

I absolutely adore this board from Fresh Exchange. It’s filled with elegant  decorating ideas to give your home a touch of holiday flavor without being overpowering. These subtle decorations make your home feel festive, while also staying simple and modern.

On the opposite end of the decorating spectrum, this board from Southern Living is packed full of holiday cheer. These feel like classic holiday decorations, a house covered in red and green, and halls decked with boughs of holly.

Gift Wrapping

While there’s nothing wrong with good old wrapping paper, I like the idea of adding a touch of creativity to my holiday wrapping with original wrapping ideas. Some of these are truly works of art, like this wrapping job by 193 Crafthouse! 

It’s super easy to add a creative touch to your wrapping style. Twine and ribbon make for fun, bohemian accents, especially when paired with fresh pine and holly. For those who are looking to reduce their footprint this year with their packaging, Brightland has a great pin here on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle your way into super cute wrapping.

The holidays can be a wonderful time to try out that new recipe you’ve been dying to give a go, or to create a cute appetizer for your holiday party. This charcuterie wreath is a creative way to serve up the pre-dinner snacks. 

You can never go wrong with a holiday-inspired dessert. Ahead of Thyme has compiled a list of their favorite holiday treats, from the traditional to more modern creations. I can’t wait to give some of these a try!

DIY Decorations

Looking for something fun to do with your kids? Want to add your own special touch to your holiday decorations? I turn to Pinterest for inspiration. This platform is filled with amazing DIY decorating crafts, such as this ornament wreath from Blossom, or these adorable Christmas gnome ornaments for your tree. These DIY crafts are a great way to spend time together as a family this holiday, and will help you to create memories to share for years to come.
