Go Big or Go Home: 5 Oversized Holiday Decor DIYS

As much as I’m a fan of miniatures, so too do I love giant versions of things. So I’ve obsessed over this season’s extra large holiday decoration zeitgeist…and those big DIY plush Christmas lights and ornaments! I used to sew stuffed animals as a hobby so I NEED to try these DIYs at some point. One of these years I’ll make time for concocting my own giant something something for the holidays. But anyways, here’s some inspiration for next year. I hope you all have a lovely holiday weekend!

Gifts for The Llama Lover

Ok…so the weekend before Christmas may be a little too last minute for a Christmas gift post, but I wanted to add my two-cents to the holiday gift guide conversation with a quickie on gifts for the llama lover:

llama gifts

Have I mentioned that I’ve collected llama figurines since I was a kid? It’s a goofy hobby that those closest to me are aware of, and since then my life has become filled with llama artwork, towels, mugs, and figures from friends. So needless to say, I’m happy the home decor world has found potential in these weird creatures too, and we now have a varied selection of llama miscellanea to choose from! Enjoy 🙂

5 Eclectic & Bohemian Holiday Tablescapes

If I posted as quickly as Christmas were coming, this round-up would’ve long been on The Tufted. But if you’re still in the market for some boho accents or arrangements for your holiday tablescape, take some last minute inspiration from these beautiful bohemian settings:

A falling garland with bits of gold and brass, a chic cowhide, and a pristine Mid-Century modern dining set make this arrangement festive, simple, and very vintage eclectic!

I’m a Justina Blakeney fanatic and her bright, Suzani draped holiday tablescape is the stuff of boho dreams! With this setting, Justina has introduced unexpected hues and floral arrangements (jewel toned accents with tufts of red and orange ranunculus!) into this holiday scene.

Less modern and more of a traditional take on bohemian style, this tablescape is lovely (and intimate) in its layered textiles, ceramic serveware, and small center arrangement. Perfect for the host shying away from conventional red and green accents and twinkle lights.

Every vintage and boho lover aspires to host a stunning outdoor dinner party like this one! Strung bistro lights and hanging garland add to the holiday ambiance in this space while cozy sheepskins and Moroccan poufs and pillows are strewn all over an area rug beneath to accommodate friends and family.

My personal favorite of the bunch, this scene speaks to my love of vintage and combines traditional kitsch elements like golden tinsel and bright red ornaments with the loveliest mix of old furniture and eclectic table accents!

Are you set for your holiday tablescape?
