9 Festive Holiday Stockings

The holiday season is here and you know what that means—it’s time to get festive and merry with your décor. You’ll want to set the scene for your family and any guests that come over for holiday parties or gatherings. When it comes to decorating your home for Christmas, you know you need the essentials: an impressive evergreen or pine tree with all the ornaments and trim, a welcoming wreath on the door, and, of course, a mantel displaying beautiful holiday accents. You can get creative with your mantel décor, adding hurricanes, vases, candlesticks, natural elements (like pinecones), and more—but don’t forget about the Christmas stockings for those small, but sweet gifts you’re planning to give the whole family. If some of your stockings are on their last threads, or if you have a new family member to account for, we have some festive options that will add eye-catching detail to your mantel—no matter your home’s style. If your Christmas décor is more traditional, there are plaid and striped versions. Or, maybe you like to go a little more luxe for the holidays? We’ve got some options with a lot of sparkle and lush texture, too. There’s even a stocking for your pet. Whatever your preference, you’ll want to hang these with care. And don’t worry if your home doesn’t come equipped with a mantel, you can always try hanging them on a plain wall, the stairs, some coat hooks, or even a bookshelf.

Spooky Halloween Décor

When October comes around, it’s time to get frightfully creative with your Halloween décor. If you’re not afraid to go dramatic and even a little macabre, there are plenty of scary Halloween decorations that will transform your house into a “haunted” one (except without the ghosts or chilling sounds). When it comes to decorating your space for this spooky season, think about some nooks, corners, and surfaces that you might normally overlook—putting décor there makes the effect even more mysterious and surprising. Your stairs could use an eerie adornment, so what about a Halloween-inspired garland? The mantel is always a prime spot for staging a scary vignette—we have some eye-catching candleholders to create the look. If you’re hosting a Halloween dinner party, you’ll want to set the scene with a dark and mysterious table—place some spooky candlestick holders or a dark and mysterious table runner to turn your dinner into a bewitching night. You won’t want to forget about lighting, which is one of the best and easiest ways to transform the mood of a room. Light some candles that give off a peculiar glow, or add some frightful accents to your existing lighting. If you’re worried about your house looking over-the-top, there are plenty of elegant options that are far from campy and cheesy (and won’t be jarring to any visitors or little kids). And if you want something that’s not ghoulish or morbid, we have décor options for that, too. Your house will be the most spirited one on the block.
