mantel

Perhaps because the trees are bare and the evenings so dark, there is a tendency at Christmas to go big on color. But holiday decor in creamy neutrals and incorporating natural elements can be an equally stunning way to celebrate the simple beauty of the season.  When you register for your wedding, a collection of neutrals for your holiday decor also allows you to switch up your color palette each year--reds and whites one season and pinks and aquas the next.

Crate and Barrel has an array of holiday details that will add a warm glow around your home. Above, these glass votive holders in varying heights blend in beautifully on a mantel covered in pine boughs and branches.

Tiny LED fairy lights are all the rage right now, but these birch branch ones are so unique!  Wrap them around centerpieces, or wind them inside a large glass vase to create a warm welcome on your entry table.

Is the path to your home a little icy?  Illuminate the way for your guests with these lovely luminaries featuring pine tree cutouts (below).  The best part is that the design allows you to use a flameless candle without anyone noticing, which can be especially helpful if you have pets or children.
