Alex & Lily’s top 3 holiday décor ideas.


The holiday season is a busy time for all. Life does not stop but more items are added to your ‘To-Do’ list. Instead of worrying about all the possible things you can do, just focus on a few. We have kept it simple this year and have chosen our three favourite holiday ideas to give you a complete, easy and fabulous holiday season!

This holiday season, we encourage you to keep it simple and find the charm in our three favourite things.



In our world, Kraft paper is KING (or QUEEN)! This simple, plain, multipurpose paper is a blank slate for your creative mind when it comes to wrapping. You may add anything to it to personalize your gifts and to create a theme. We love how it can be used any time of the year and the details added to it are what make it festive. Try doing a red and green paint splatter on your craft paper for Christmas time. For some extra sparkle- try gluing on festive sparkles or sequence for an illuminating touch.

Nothing says homey like the smell of freshly baked cookies. Not to mention the fun-filled afternoon of decorating cookies with your family or friends! Homemade cookies are a great way to get into the holiday spirit and can be given as gifts (to save on the budget), or for you to enjoy at home. Don’t worry if you aren’t the best baker in the land, sugar cookies are a very simple recipe and you can decorate them however you like!

We love wrapping cookies and sweets up in holiday cellophane packaging to give away as gifts.

Holidays are about traditions: ‘we always eat turkey’, ‘we always put our tree up on December 1st’. The Christmas tree, for example, is one of the most overt displays of tradition in your home. It is beautiful and decorated and the centre of Christmas morning.

Instead of going out and spending a lot of money on one hundred new ornaments for your tree, buy what you like, buy things that relate to each other (either colours, styles, or shapes), and slowly build your collection over time. Over the years, you will receive ornaments from friends or family, find new things you love in places you travel to, and slowly add decorations to your tree that will help to tell your story. Each year, you can have something new and meaningful that will evoke a fond memory of the year you received/purchased it. So don’t break the bank the first time you get a tree of your own–let it grow and change with your life and your celebrations.


We hope that these simple tips of ours will help you have a special, personal and unique holiday season!
