Sometimes, it's the simplest touches that make all the difference. In this blog post, we're sharing four tried-and-true ways to add an extra holiday touch to your home. These are the secrets we swear by when styling a home for Christmas, and we're excited to pass them on to you.

#1. Decorate Your Lighting

When it comes to creating a warm and inviting holiday atmosphere, lighting plays a crucial role. Take a closer look at your pendants, picture lights, and sconces—these can be elevated with just a few additions. Consider adding ribbons and stems to your lighting fixtures. It's a simple yet effective trick that can instantly bring a festive vibe in any room. Choose ribbons and stems that match your color scheme to keep things cohesive.

Here is an example of the process we follow to decorate a kitchen pendant:

Step 1: -Take two of our 18" Evergreen Picks and criss cross the stems together to combine them. Bend/curve them into the greenery portion of the pick.

Step 2: Layer two of our 21" Cream Berry Picks on top of the evergreen picks. Follow the same process of bending the stem.

Step 3: Add our Houndstooth and 1.5” Swiss Velvet ribbons to finish the look.
