The Holiday Edit by Diamonds in the Desert Design

The Christmas countdown is officially on and with it comes the familiar excitement of decorating, gifting, and hosting family get-togethers. This season, I am creating an elevated Holiday look in my home with primarily neutral decor, pops of burgundy, and a lot of texture. I am finding ways to incorporate a lot of texture and bring in some natural elements. To help you prepare for the Holiday season, I've put together a comprehensive holiday guide including my favorite decor, ornaments, and a few gift guides.

Getting Your Home Ready for the Holidays

Holiday Decor

I love styling my home for the Holiday season and I am thrilled to share some of my favorite decor pieces this year! Topping my list are stunning glass and ceramic trees, zinc reindeer statues, and a branch candleholder. These items will look beautiful styled on your mantel, on your table, or in your entryway. I also love this beautiful maple and pine faux wreath for an elevated holiday staple.


This season, my favorite Christmas ornaments are those that feature various shades of neutrals and intricate textures. The shades of neutrals in these decorations range from dark gray, to chestnut brown, to cream, and add a natural touch and warmth to an evergreen tree. The flocked decorations add a unique touch of texture and the glass ornaments add classic elegance. The matte finish on some of the ornaments adds a more natural and relaxed feel while mixing in the golds and mercury glass add some elegance. The mix of textures and tones will make for a beautiful tree.

Table Setting

To create a stunning Holiday tablescape, I love incorporating elements like evergreen garland, brass candlesticks, ceramic or glass trees, and adding thoughtful touches to each place setting. This year, I'm excited to buy a new seasonal napkin and these charming metal bell place card holders, adding a touch of festive flair to the overall ambiance.

Gift Wrapping

Adding a little extra detail to each wrapped present is another part of holiday decor that I absolutely adore. This year, I am stocking up on luxurious velvet ribbon in rich, jewel tones and dark chocolate brown. I am incorporating faux springs for an extra touch.
