Christmas is just days away! I have one more day of work left and then it’s family and friends for the rest of the week. I can’t wait! If you’re like me and you’ve had a crazy December, then you’re house probably isn’t ready for holiday guests. This past weekend I ran around and picked up a few last-minute decor pieces to finish decorating our little space.
When decorating, I love mixing high and low pieces to create a festive aesthetic on a budget. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite picks ranging from just a few bucks to those splurge-worthy pieces I’ll have for a long time. Some of my favorite budget-friendly places to shop are Gordmans (did you know they have online shopping now?), H&M Home, Amazon, and Target. I especially love Gordmans because of their HUGE selection and designer-inspired decor pieces at a fraction of the price. If I ever find something that’s a bit over my budget, I head to Gordmans to find a dupe. You’d be surprised by all of their goodies! Plus, with nearly 100 locations across the United States, there’s always one close by. When it comes to splurging on items, I love Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, and West Elm. Below I’ll link were everything is from, but if I missed anything make sure to shoot me an email with questions! P.S. There’s a big announcement on the blog tomorrow! Stay tuned.

Birch Logs c/o Gordmans
This was the first year we started getting tons of holiday cards. I didn’t have anywhere to display them, so I picked up this super affordable burlap bulletin board!
I wanted to create a personalized place setting, so I found these little ornament place card holders, filled them with fresh greenery and added a tag on top. To get the customized lettering—which I also used to make our gift tags—I found this stamp on Etsy.
