Christmas Inspiration Mood Boards

We’re sharing 5 Christmas Inspiration Mood Boards to help make your planning, decorating, and shopping a bit easier this holiday season!

Creating Christmas Inspiration Mood Boards…

I almost saved these mood boards for next month but then I realized how many of the items I wanted for our holiday home that were already on the limited or low-quantity list!

I know some of you like to shop early for your Christmas and holiday décor because you want to make sure you have plenty to choose from.

Frankly, I’m in that camp too. 

Gathering Holiday Inspiration Early…

As I shared in our 12 Ways to Ease into the Holidays post, it’s so much easier to get all the Christmas decorating out of the way as early as possible.

That way, you can enjoy everything the holiday season has to offer!

In creating these Christmas inspiration mood boards, I wanted to…

  • Find décor items that would be easily accessible
  • Budget friendly (although there is an expensive tree on the list because of the height)
  • Color palettes that would be simple to change out from one season to the next or reuse from year to year

Keep in mind, you might be able to find similar items during holiday event sales or by using coupons from your favorite big box stores.  Feel free to mix and match these ideas with the colors that best represent your home and budget. 

Here are 5 Christmas Inspiration Mood Boards you can easily create at home this holiday season…

Take the Pressure Off Holiday Decorating…

I know there can sometimes feel like a lot of pressure to go all out, especially when it comes to Christmas decorating.

My best advice when you’re getting ready to choose a color palette or theme for your holiday décor is to use what you have first. 

Then supplement with what you need by adding floral picks, bold fabrics, beautiful ribbons, and pretty packages.

Shop the House…

As I’ve shared many times, our home has very little storage space.  We’re constantly shopping seasonal sales or borrowing vintage items from my mom or aunts.

Remember the equestrian plates I used on our Fall tablescape? I swear that tablescape would not have looked the same without those vintage plates from my aunt!

Keep in Mind…

When it comes to dressing your home for the season, think about how you want your home to feel when you walk through the door.  It will help steer you in the right direction.

Particularly if you like multiple styles and are having trouble narrowing your ideas down. 

I walk into the Christmas section of big box stores, love it all, and then immediately become distracted by the shiny things too!

I hope these 5 Christmas inspiration mood boards have helped.  If you missed our Favorite Things: Christmas in July post, you can find additional holiday goodies there!

Let us know how you plan to decorate this year! Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Many blessings,

    1. Thank you! It really does feel like people are in the spirit of the holidays a lot earlier this year than they have been in years past which is so exciting! We both had a wild ride with the holidays last year so I can’t wait to see what this year will bring. Big hugs and lots of love, CoCo

  2. Thank you for this post. All the boards are beautiful and inspirational. I am trying to get everything I need for Christmas early this year due to the shipping issues. You gave me some beautiful, affordable options

    1. So exciting to hear, AJ! I was kind of shocked when a few of the things we had our eye on had already sold out and it was still the middle of October so you are super smart to start shopping early. It definitely seems like people are already in the Christmas spirit this year. Hope you have the best day, CoCo

  3. That was such a great hack for determining how many lights to use on the tree. I also really appreciated your tip for shopping the house. The easiest way to save money is to simply use what we already have!

    1. For sure, Heidi! And to keep the clutter or excess boxes of seasonal stuff at bay. We have very little storage space in this house so we’re always trying to come up with fresh ways to use our old stuff. Hope you’ve had a great week, CoCo

  4. OH I just love all those deep navy and green tones!

    1. Thank you, Joanne! They’re super easy to dress up or down and mix with golds, silvers, or even whites depending on what kind of ribbon you have. My parents have a lot of blue and white in their home so I’m getting excited to see how they’re going to decorate this year. It’s hard to believe the holidays are almost here! Hope you’ve had a great week, CoCo

  5. Oh goodness, CoCo!! I really needed this post. I donated and sold a lot of our Christmas stuff when we moved so I’m struggling this year on what theme I want to go with. I do love all of the elements of the romantic board but I’m also loving the Scandinavian look. I’ll definitely be saving this to help make my decision!! Thank you!!

    1. I’m totally with you, Christine, it’s been SO hard to decide on a theme this year! I’ve been SHOCKED at the amount of red and green and traditional items flooding the market this year. It’s bananas! Fingers crossed we’ll be able to get what we need to create a magical holiday season. Hugs, CoCo
