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 starting to pull 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.

Checkered Throw Pillow Covers

No matter what wintry color scheme you prefer, these checkered throw pillow covers are the perfect holiday accent for 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.

Lit Willow Tree Branches

If you want to add a little warmth to your home but trees are not for you, these lit willow tree branches are the perfect thing to pop into a vase by themselves or with an artificial holiday arrangement.

Kitchen Towels

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

Table Runner

Table Runners are another affordable item that can easily amplify your holiday decor. We love this one because it comes in 11 different colors and is machine washable for any holiday spills or stains that may pop up.

Wall Art

Wall art is a staple in any home. It can really tie your decor together and gives you a chance to express your style on your walls! We like these prints that can easily be popped into a bathroom or hallway. If you’re looking for something a little bigger as well, this piece would pair perfectly with these prints! 

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!

Holiday 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!
