Seasonal Decor

I love going all out when it comes to the holidays and decorating. As a busy wife, mother of three and television host, I always try to make this time of year magical for my family! So, when it came time to look for holiday inspiration, I drove straight to HomeGoods to get my creativity flowing. HomeGoods is my one-stop shop for entertaining essentials, gifts and décor!

My style is a mix of traditional and contemporary, so when I found red and black buffalo check pillows and place mats at HomeGoods, I immediately threw them in my cart and was inspired to make the pattern a focus in my living room and dining room.

While exploring in store, I also found an adorable lumber jack nutcracker, festive garland to hang from the entryway railings and mantle and ornaments to layer on the tree – all with buffalo check to tie together the space. It was meant to be! I think festive accessories can really bring a space to the next level and love how the red pops.

At my house, the party starts as soon as you step in the door. This year, I found a life-size Santa Claus and a giant sleigh for my entry way at HomeGoods… how could I resist?!

I love hunting for pieces at HomeGoods that will bring the kiddos that sense of holiday magic. I knew they would flip for the giant Santa and sleigh, but when I found an oversized mailbox for letters to Santa and a wooden advent calendar with drawers for candy, I knew I had to create a section of the entry way just for them to spark their holiday imaginations.

I’ve officially decked the halls with my favorite HomeGoods finds! I love that my space is filled with Christmas magic, and hope you can stop by your local HomeGoods to find what gets you excited for the holidays. Happy holidays from my family to yours!
