The time to think about holiday decorating is going to creep up on us really fast here soon. So to keep the stress of “what to do?!” at bay, my friends and I have come together to share our best Holiday decorating inspiration with you. A la “Christmas in July” style.
If you’re new around here, you may not yet know that I consider myself a bohemian. And my interiors and even holiday decorating reflect that. I bring in some vintage pieces, some whimsical pieces and some pieces from around the world. I went into some detail last Holiday season but today I want to show more options.

I've started a new collection unintentionally ?. On various thrift in excursions, I've picked up these interesting salt and pepper shakers. The first one was the far left. I use it to stick sticks of incense into. . ?Tag your boho collections, spaces and snapshots to be featured from the #showmeyourboho feed!
Lanterns filled with Twinkle Lights
Stockings with Boho Flair
Decorate the Mantle with Fringe Garland
Use Natural or Natural Looking Greenery, Pinecones and gathered sticks. Embellish them with funky ornaments.

Boho not your thing? Booooo. Just kidding! I totally get it. Farmhouse? Not at all mine. Which is why I’m excited to have partnered with my friends to bring you loads of different Christmas decorating styles. Check them out below:
