Festive Holiday Decorations on a Budget

Festive Holiday Decorations on a Budget

festive holiday

The time is upon us!  And the Holiday Season is officially in full swing.  I love this time of year.  The food, the family and friends, the decorations… combined they create the perfect backdrop for life long memories.

However, I also realize that this time of year can be very stressful.  Traffic is often out of control (I’m talking to you, Atlanta… specifically I-85!), there are crowds of people gathered at shopping centers, and your monthly budget gets blown up like a firework on the 4th of July. These circumstances don’t exactly make you feel like this…


But rather, they make you feel more like sad-face-looking-longingly-into-the-distance-wondering-when-life-will-turn-back-to-normal…


That is why, I am here to help!  I want to make your life a little easier, by sharing some of the best Holiday decorations, at multiple prices points, that, drum roll please… you can purchase online!  Easy breezy!

Let’s dive in!

H&M – under $100

H&M knows what they are doing when it comes to Holiday decor.  These decorations start at $2.99!  It doesn’t get much cheaper than that unless its free.  And since “free” is not often a word we hear around the Holidays, H&M is a great place to do your decor shopping.  Here is a small preview of what you might find:




Look at those prices!  I’m still doing a double take.

Pottery Barn – over $100

Pottery Barn just might be the king of Holiday Decor.  The variety is astounding and I love that so many items can be personalized.  Pottery Barn quality is also a force to be reckoned with… pretty much anything you purchase from this company can be used for years and years to come.  Here is a little preview of what you might find:




Pottery Barn has fabulous velvet stockings that you can have personalized.  They are so festive on a mantel and they also make for a very thoughtful gift.  (Tip: Pottery Barn provides GORGEOUS gift wrapping, so if you are in a bind and need to purchase a gift, purchase from PB and add the wrapping.)

Restoration Hardware – over $200

Restoration Hardware is a great resource for unique finds.  They have a way of really upping the ante when it comes to home decor and their Holiday selection is no different.  I mean, where else are you going to find a faux fur Christmas tree skirt and hand blow glass ornaments?  The only downside is that these items are definitely on the pricier side.  Here is a preview of what you will find:
