I was doing my Saturday morning routine of mindlessly scrolling through Facebook while in bed as a soft start to my day—awake, but not committed to much more. As I was doing so, I ran across an article from Domino about Target’s new holiday collection. I was so excited to jump in and see what they had to say.
Before I do so, let me digress for a moment. Two weeks ago (and probably last week and every other week), I was strutting (I strut there because I love it) through the aisles of Target and saw that the holiday collection was just added in the home department. I swear to you, my knees got week—it all looked SO DAMN GOOD. In a split second my whole living room was decorated for the holidays with everything I had just laid my eyes on a moment before. I wanted it all.
Back to the Domino article. I jumped into the online slide show (does anyone else hate those things more than me? I wish we could always just scroll—reloading a new page for every image drives me up a wall) so excited for them to confirm the amazingness I saw in the store. But they didn’t and I was disappointed. Full disclosure, that the front end of the article stated, “If you’re not feeling the red and green color combination this year, no problem“ but I just felt like that statement alone left out so many wonderful things. Out of the 15 items featured three were garland (never really a show stopper); three of the items were plush (yes, I know the kids count too during the holidays) and two things were items for consideration year round (they are great and I would buy them January 15 as well).
So, I said to myself, “Self, if you don’t like this round up, let’s do one of our own.” Below are my favorites from Target’s 2016 Holiday Collection (and more). I will be sure to let you know which ones I have already purchased with an asterisk.
COOL & MODERN
COZY & PREPPY
FESTIVE & BLUE
I am clearly leaning towards a cozy and preppy holiday this year. The whole scheme really goes with my existing décor in the living room and, let’s be honest, that is important to me. I really can’t wait to get all of this stuff out in two weeks.
What décor items are you most looking forward to this holiday season? Were you inspired by the above? Are you on your way to Target? If so, I’ll see you there…I am the one strutting.
