2016 Gift Guide: Trimming + Decorations

by Grace Bonney

There are few things that make me happier than decorating for the holiday season. Whether it’s Julia’s annual DIY menorah (click here for more Hanukkah ideas), gathering branches from the yard to make wreaths or picking a fun assortment of ornaments for our tree, getting in the holiday spirit always makes me happy. Something about the extra greenery around the house and a few extra candles and decorations just makes everything feel a little happier and warmer. So today I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday trimmings, from ornaments and tree skirts to garlands and swag. Enjoy, and happy decorating! xo, grace
