Inspiration for Easy and Affordable Holiday Decor

Morgan Keegan

The holiday season is upon us and that means so is seasonal decor!

If you’re pulling out the boxes labeled “Holiday Decorations” and find that you need to replace a few things or just want to add more to your collection, we have affordable suggestions for you.

Snowflake Throw Pillow Covers

No matter what wintry color scheme you prefer, these white snowflake throw pillow covers are a subtle way to add holiday accents to your home. We love them because they’re so cozy and come in so many different colors!


Shatterproof Ball Ornaments

If you have pets or young ones running around your home this holiday season, these shatterproof ball ornaments are a must-have. We like to use them for holiday DIYs like wreaths and garlands.

Tabletop Decor

Spruce up your fireplace or coffee table with a few figurines that match your decor.

Warm Fairy Lights

The best way to make any room look cozy is to add some warm fairy lights! You can hang them on the walls or add them to mason jars with some festive greenery for affordable DIY tabletop decor. 

Kitchen Towels

Switching out kitchen towels is the easiest way to add a seasonal accent to your home. We love these! 

Door Mat

Start the holiday cheer at your doorstep with a holiday-themed door mat!

Reversible Wall Art

Wall art allows you a chance to express your personal style and can really tie your decor together. We love this set of reversible prints that can be used year-round, so you don't have to reorganize your wall art seasonally. 

Door Sign

Door signs are a fun, no-fuss way to add a touch of the holidays to your home. You can hang them anywhere!

Decorating is just one of the fun things about the holiday season. We hope you add some of these items to your collection this year!
