Thanksgiving is over, which means Christmas is almost here! It is now socially acceptable to unpack your Christmas ornaments and put up your tree. We rounded up a few of our favorite festive decorations to get the holiday spirit flowing.

We pulled tips from each of the bloggers included so you can see what helped them pull together such lovely, cohesive looks for their holiday decoration. You can also download a visual with all of the blogger tips compiled together at the bottom of the post. Happy decorating!

Michele at the Joyful Home likes to start with fresh greens and then pick a theme to follow throughout her home. Incorporating whites can really help a dark room pop. She also does a nice job of adding festive elements to her everyday decor.

Jenn from the Fabuless Life does a great job of combining inexpensive finds with family favorites to create a bright timeless look. We love how she was able to combine the bright, feminine pastels with traditional green holiday decor to create a modern take on a classic look. Check out her full home tour for more colorful tips!

If you prefer the traditional look of an old school family Christmas, Allyson Brown has you covered! She has adorable inspiration for eclectic handmade ornaments and beautiful green wreaths. The bright greens and red epitomise the spirit of a classic Christmas!

The best part of this decor style aside from how simple Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe makes this look to put together, is how cohesive and chic it is. To pull it off, you need an eclectic mix of antique and bargain finds with a key oversized element like an old window shutter or a beat up drawer. You will also want to style them with some natural elements and bring it all together with something consistent like burlap.

Update an old-school element by adding a pop of gold. Not only does this bring in some fun shine, it also adds a pop of color to the white color scheme. Amy from The Happy Scraps made a dreamy Christmas tree with a simple homemade garland and bright pops of gold on her classic ornaments.

Eucalyptus is such a beautiful greenery and it is complemented so well by the bright pops of yellow from the citrus decor. Sugar and Charm made an elegant and simple wreath that is so on trend it is sure to be the hit of  your holiday party. We love the pops of gold too!
