Although the unusually warm December weather in NYC may have scared Frosty away… the holidays are here! Thanksgiving has come and gone, our holiday shop is open, and our twelve-day holiday giveaway is halfway over (so don’t forget to enter!). This time of year, when we’re scrolling through Instagram or reading through blogs before bed with a cup of hot cocoa, we’re even more impressed than usual by our AMAZING blogger friends and the crazy creative talent they have in making their homes holiday ready. Here is our list of eleven holiday bloggers you CANNOT MISS this season. Honestly, their work will have you in tears of holiday nostalgia faster than Santa’s elves can build a gingerbread house (which, we’ll just assume here, is pretty fast).
Tired of the traditional red and green Christmas colors? Us too. We adore Ashley’s vibrant and snazzy approach to the holidays. She’s both colorful and stylish, and everything that she posts is honestly just so freakin’ adorable. Check out her Instagram for bold pops of holiday cheer. Her quirky mugs are one of our favorite small gift ideas for your girlfriends.
We love the look brand stylist Emily McCarthy put together on her blog for a Palm Beach Christmas that is anything but generic. Take a leaf from her book, and try bright and unexpected colors for your holiday decor. This look is especially great for warm, coastal Christmases that need a little tropical edge. Oh—and if you need stationary for your gifts this year, she’s your gal.
We’ve always been a big fan of Style Me Pretty. Their bundle of holiday recipes and DIY projects (from knit stockings to forged garland to mulled wine) are must-reads for the handy hostess.
If you’ve been keeping up with the Kuotes, you’ll know that Craftberry Bush is one of our absolute favorite DIY bloggers. Her home is absolutely gorgeous, and her projects and printables are always fun and inspirational. Take a peek at some of her incredible work:
Martha might be an idol to us all, but Mandy, who runs Waiting on Martha, is just as inspiring all by herself. Her assortment of stories from interiors to food and entertainment will have people lining up to be on your holiday party guest list.
The Lilypad Cottage truly speaks for itself with innovative and insanely stylish home inspiration for those who cherish a traditional red, white and evergreen holiday season. Absolutely stunning, don’t you think?
You can’t go wrong here. If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you’ll recognize Thistlewood Farms from our multiple re-grams from this inspiring blog! If you’re a fan of natural elements brought into the home, this blog is an absolute must!
Lark and Linen is another one of our favorite interior design blogs, and this year Jacquelyn’s winter wonderland home tour is full of golden glamor. Check out her blog for more inspiration on how to make your holidays shine with elegance.
9. Tammy Damore
For a super rich, vintage-inspired holiday season, look no further than Tammy Damore. Her blog offers top styling tips for incorporating vintage ornaments and antiques into your holiday aesthetic. We also love her regal color palette!
We “can’t even” with the cuteness every time we scroll past one of Landyn’s new IG posts. If you enjoy a whimsical approach to the holidays, check out Landyn’s “Elf on the Shelf” interpretation (along with her beautiful home). What a fun idea!
11. Designs by Ceres
Fresh and ultra-feminine, we’ve re-grammed and gushed over this pretty in pink Christmas aesthetic all season long. It’s just so sweet like candy—perfect for the holidays!
