2020 Holiday Decor Pieces
Looking for some holiday decor you saw used in my home? It’s all here! I am keeping it simple – this is a simple list and photos of everything we use.
I update this regularly with new photos from 2020, but some photos are from last year.
Our 3 Full Size Christmas Trees
We have 3 faux trees we use, listed below.
Our Living Room Tree
We went faux for our main Christmas tree in our living room and now we are converts for life! Cleaning up the mess of real trees was not worth it for me. WE LOVE OUR TREE. The value for a full and lifelike tree under $300 cannot be beat.
This tree is prelit and has several sizes/options. (As a guide, you want between a foot and a foot and a half between your tree and ceiling). We love this tree – it looks so full and the branches are realistic. The price is awesome!
IT DOES REQUIRE FLUFFING! They sent a youtube link showing how to fluff the tree. You don’t necessarily need to watch it- but you do need to devote time to fluffing each branch alllll the way out, one by one, when it’s right out of the box.
Here it is in 2020:
Our Second, Smaller Tree
I like to use a lovely, natural looking faux Christmas tree in our foyer.
This tree is a Noble Fir – a skinny, trendy tree. It took some convincing to show Jose that not every tree needs to be overpowering and “the fullest tree ever”. A natural, smaller tree decorated is beautiful too – and it makes the entrance to our house so welcoming for the holidays. This tree is offered in prelit or unlit. Ours was prelit, but Zion ate right through the cords… so now it is unlit.
Our Flocked Tree
In our bedroom we have our flocked Christmas tree. We have had this flocked tree since 2017. It is gorgeous! The flocking does a good job of staying in place – even taken in and out of storage. It still looks equally as beautiful as the day we got it. It is a very full tree and you can’t see the trunk.
ANOTHER flocked tree that is an AMAZING (better?!?) alternative (and I was so tempted to buy this year – even though I was told 3 trees was enough!) is this long needle green pine tree. I love the long natural needles on this one! I wish wish wish I had a place for this! Someone who has this tree- tell me is it everything I am dreaming of??
Three other beautiful trees to consider:
Christmas Tree Collar
We use this pretty woven collar on our big tree- this guy does sell out every year in late November. Trust me, I had to drive an hour away to a store to grab the last one two years ago! (Pottery Barn has an even prettier version, and Target has a cheaper alternative but it doesn’t ship.)
We have a simple fur skirt wrapped around our smaller tree in the entry.
If you are looking for a faux garland read this post about the best garlands– along with images of how they look in real people’s homes.
This year I am using everyone’s favorite garland year after year, the Faux Cedar Garland. Cedar hangs really beautifully – you can’t beat that natural look! It does need bulking up – I used 3 of the 6ft garland in this photo for the extra full look.

I did create a massive garland last year out of several pieces and hung it over the fireplace, you can read the DIY Tutorial here!
High Quality Garlands:
All our wreaths – indoor and outdoor below.
Our Indoor Wreaths
It actually came with a red felt (see below!).
This wreath sells out mid November!
Nothing like beautiful boxwood wreaths inside windows to bring the magic inside!
To hang them, I just stuck are 3-5lb command hooks on the center of windows, pressed them in for 30 seconds, and left them alone for an hour. Later, come back and hang your wreath!
Ours are no longer made sadly but below are similar.
Our large wreaths got a tweak this Christmas. It appears very similar- but like a few extra pieces of pine to the wreath.
Of course I wanted just a little embellishment – so I added those oversized cow bells to my wreath, with a velvet ribbon. You can use a velvet ribbon in lots of places in your home during the holidays (bows on garlands, tying up gifts, the back of chairs).
The blue plaid door mat is a year round favorite but looks especially cute during the holiday season!
Below are some cute wreaths – don’t settle for the cheaply made ones! Here are some favorites:

These cream stockings are a nice break from all the green and red. They are great quality, soft and thick! The reviews are what sold me.
The kids do not care about them (of course), because what kid cares about linen. They would rather pull out their PBK Quilted Stockings. I bought and added onto these adorable stockings when they are on sale just before Thanksgiving. We chose not to monogram them because the kids like to trade off.
