Every year I have some areas in our home and some Christmas decoration ideas that are my favorite. Do you have favorites too! You do? Then I’m not the only one! Here are my top 10 favorite decoration ideas for Christmas 2020!
Decorating is all about details and no season has more fabulous details than Christmas!
Have you ever thought about making a list of what decorating ideas were your favorites this year? I’d love to share some of yours in the comments so we can all be inspired!
Let’s dig right in!
Here are my top 10…
CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEA #10- THE DINING AREA PENDANT LAMP
This Christmas I used snowy greens and big pinecones to decorate our home.
I bought 4 new garlands and cut them apart to use throughout the house. I’ve used the same greens for a l-o-n-g time so these pretty new greens were a welcome change.
On a whim I added a halo of greens with attached pinecones around the top of our basket pendant. And I was surprised how nice it looked in this modestly decorated area!
#9- PILLOWS ON OUR MASTER BEDROOM BED
One of the simple pleasures in life, for me, is going into our bedroom and seeing a well-made bed! It makes me feel like all is well with the world.
I think I get this from my mother. I don’t think I have ever seen her bed unmade when she was not in it. EVER!
This year I loved the pillows on our bed. They were not overtly Christmassy but hinted at the season instead.
Part of my pillow love this Christmas was the color palette and the luxury feel of Mongolian hides and velvet.
I’m going to remember just how much I liked the white/citron green/brown combination too!

#8- AN EASY CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEA FOR THE STAIRS
Oh, I could lose my decorating confidence over my stairs. There is just so much I really don’t like about them!
However, decorating them for Christmas proved to be easier than I thought.
At first, I was not going to decorate them at all. And then I was only going to decorate the newel post. But not too heavily!
Then I saw a beautiful way to add a bit of Christmas to stairs by not adding garland! Instead, I saw a Pinterest image of a few candles placed on some steps of a staircase.
So I ran with this idea! At first I just added candles. And then I added some little faux trees.
Who knew the staircase would make the 10 ten Christmas decoration ideas this year?
#7- THE CHRISTMAS MANTEL
I think I like this year’s mantel for lots of reasons.
- I like asymmetrical things
- The faux green garlands were really lovely
- I styled my mantel and then added “phase2”
- The green colors are my favorite
- “O, Come Let Us Adore Him” sign says what Christmas is really all about

After I had styled the mantel I added stockings to it and hung them the easy way!
FAVORITE CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEA #6- THE TABLETOP TREE
This was the second year I added a tabletop tree to our Christmas decor. And I just can’t see every not having one now.
First, this little tree added so much Christmas cheer and sparkle and pretty lights to our sunroom and I put our small Nativity under it.
And I also greatly enjoy decorating this tree! It’s not a huge commitment! I sorta like decorating that is not a huge commitment!

#5- SNOW VILLAGE SCENE
When you put something under glass and sprinkle snow all around it something magical happens!
And this little snowy village was such an easy Christmas decoration to put together!
All I used was a couple of WHITE PAINTED CARDBOARD HOUSES WITH SILVER LEAF ROOFS, some fairy lights, bottle brush trees, a pair of cake pedestals, ornaments and of course snow!
Every time I look at it it makes me sigh!

#4- THE BIG TREE
I have a little confession to make about the tree in this picture. It’s not really done.
I thought it was when I took these pictures, but I added more “stuff” to the tree! And it looks ten times better!
I’ll make sure I get a few images of the new and improved tree out to you in my newsletter in a day or two.
I think I like this tree because I LOVE the colors this year! Don’t those green Christmas balls demand attention?
Unlike the tabletop tree our big tree took two days to decorate and it was a huge commitment. But it was so much fun to see it take shape.
FAVORITE CHRISTMAS DECORATING IDEA #3- THE VERTICAL COAT RACK
I’ve had a lot of fun decorating the vertical coat rack that hangs near our front door in the foyer this year.
Usually, this coat rack is reserved for grab-and-go baskets or coats of guests. But company and entertaining are virtually nonexistent this year so I’ve been decorating the coat rack instead.
I really like this vertical area! It’s adds a bit of the season when I walk in my front door.
#2- EASY CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENTS
I’ve make so many USE WHAT YOU HAVE ARRANGEMENTS this year!
I put these arrangements in a tray or basket I have on hand. And then add two or three other elements I also have.
They are addictive, are super easy to put together and make my home Christmas ready.
This has been the Christmas of the USE WHAT YOU HAVE CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENTS.
FAVORITE CHRISTMAS DECORATION IDEA #1- STARS AND SNOWFLAKES
My very favorite Christmas decoration this year are the stars and snowflakes hanging in our foyer!
I don’t think the pictures does this area justice. It looks so so magical!
The stars and snowflakes gently turn. The heat from the fireplace rises and moves over the loft and down into the foyer and causes the stars and snowflakes to gently dance!
I’ll definitely put these up again next year! This may be a Tanglewood tradition!
There are my top 10 Christmas decoration ideas!
