Top 10 Holiday Decorating Ideas and Photos


How many of us adore the great website Pinterest

A wonderful site that combines inspirational decorating photos and ideas from so many of our favorite magazines, stores, etc., and Southern Living being one of them! :-) 

I discovered in an article by Southern Living recently their, "Top 10 Holiday Decorating photos pinned on Pinterest".  Look at the great holiday decorating photos below by Southern Living, some wonderful ideas to decorate your home this holiday season. 

 Red and Gold Christmas Tree

Give the traditional red and green color scheme a twist by using only red and gold ornaments on the tree, so that the pine needles, gift ribbons, and threads of green in the tartan blanket are the only green elements. This look proves that a nostalgic color scheme can be updated for a fresh, modern look.

 Make Your Own Magnolia Wreath

Magnolia wreaths are gorgeous, but they can be expensive to buy. Learn the easy way to make them yourself and save money.

 Wrap Gifts in Burlap

Send your guests away with something thoughtful to mark the occasion by wrapping a simple vase in burlap. Tuck in some holly and Star of Bethlehem for added Christmas embellishment, and display them by the door or gate so that friends can pick them up as they depart.

 Candy Cane Place Card Holder

An elegant and simple DIY project! Secure three mini candy canes with double-sided tape to make easels for place cards.

 Put Out Christmas Lanterns

Arrange a grouping of festive lanterns at your entryway for quick-and-easy holiday style. Consider using flameless candles as a worry-free alternative to regular pillars.

 Hang Twinkling Lights

Hang twinkling Christmas lights on a fountain or stone wall in the garden to create a striking winter focal point from your patio or porch. Even if it’s too cold to entertain outside, you''ll enjoy the soft cozy glow through the windows.

 Mistletoe Kissing Ball

Use your leafy bounty to craft an im-peck-able Christmas decoration.

 Peppermint Candy Centerpiece

To create this wintry centerpiece, place a low bowl of roses in a larger bowl and fill in between with mints.

 Lush & Sophisticated Mantel

To get this look, start with a store-bought garland. Space five pieces of water-soaked florist foam, secured inside cages, along the mantel. (Cover your mantel in plastic to protect it.) Cover the foam with pieces of store-bought garland.

Next, insert clipped magnolia, holly, pine, and cedar into the foam. Make loops from aspidistra leaves by poking the stems through the tips of the leaves. Insert the stems into the foam.

Complete the look by layering in milo, millet, and rose hips. On the sides of the garland, wire in items that don't require water. Fill in holes with more magnolia. Keep it looking fresh by misting with a preservative called Floralife Crowning Glory Solution.

 Rustic Wreath

Use a rough material, like burlap, to add some rustic charm to your wreath.

Special thanks to Southern Living and Pinterest for the inspirational decorating photos that inspire all of us holiday decorators to create! 

Now, let the holiday decorating begin in Charlotte, NC! :)

Founder and owner Tonia Mosteller of Innovative Interiors –Holiday Decorating shares with us the passion she has for decorating homes and businesses for the holiday season and Christmas.

 "Holiday decorating is a passion and great love of mine. Since I was 5 years old; my mom would find me snuggled up in my bed with paper and color pencils; drawing family rooms with Christmas trees, garlands, and stockings hung from a crackling fireplace, and of course milk & cookies for Santa. Grew up with wonderful holiday memories and traditions that I will always cherish. And now many of those traditions I share with my own family, plus my husband and I have created some wonderful new traditions that we share with our families.  Because of the passion and love for decorating, the smiles I bring to others when they see their holiday decorations's truly warms my heart and soul. Those moments are priceless for me. I cherish the relationships I build with each of my clients, and it's a blessing to decorate their homes or business for the holidays."

"Specials thanks to all of our holiday clients! Thank you for your continued business. We are forever grateful for each of you.  We appreciate allowing us to be creative and decorate your rooms and trees!"  

Happy Holidays from our home to yours!

Fall Holiday Decorating Ideas

It's the time of year that we start getting our homes ready for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday, and making our holiday shopping list. Then we start wondering what should I do to get my home ready for these two amazing holidays?! Plus, decorate my home for the most wonderful time of year...FALL

Thanks to Southern Living, they share with us some great photo inspirations and ideas that will get you moving in the right direction this holiday season! Check out below these great inspirations, and if you need more ideas be sure to check them out on

Fall Foliage Arrangement

Fall Foliage Arrangement

The key to arranging leaves is to group them by size and color as you would flowers. Fiery red maple makes a beautiful focal point when countered with the feathery foliage of dawn redwood laden with globes of gray-green fruit on the fringes.

Pumpkin Topiary

Vertical displays make a big statement at the front door. Tucking in cool-weather edibles such as ornamental flowering cabbages, kale, and bay leaves adds a distinctive twist. To create topiaries, sandwich bay wreaths between pumpkins stacked in concrete urns, and top with a small pumpkin.

Rustic Centerpiece

Naturally shed antlers lend a new twist to table decor. Pile them up with different-colored pumpkins, pine cones, and loose nuts and bring the outdoors in.

Use Color for Impact

Use Color for Impact

A neutral backdrop of white linens and dishes puts the focus on punches of orange and green.

Candlelight Dinner

Complete your tablescape by adding candles in fun lanterns that complement your color palatte. Mix in simple canning jars for a more casual affair.

Don't Neglect Your Outdoor Space

A cascading display down the stairs allows you to use bigger ones that have more presence and are visible from the road. Position them on their sides or stack them on planters for an original look.
