Deck the Halls

Cookie exchanges, cocktail parties, and holiday dinners…let the festivities begin! We know your home is an entertaining hub from now through January 1st and we’re here to help make those holiday gatherings festive. Homefest has got you covered when it comes to decking the halls, the mantle, the tree, your table and more, plus great holiday décor ideas to take the stress out of decorating.

Holiday Centerpieces

Our centerpiece trays are one of our favorite design solutions – especially this time of year when your seasonal decorating changes about as often as your gel manicure. We have a beautiful selection of trays and candles that can easily be updated with seasonal elements all year long. Whether you’re looking for a holiday vibe or something more evergreen, here are a few of our favorite winter looks:

  • Silver & Pink Holiday Centerpiece: Add a little glitz to your table with silver crushed glass, assorted mercury glass votives, pinecones, and a selection of cream and metallic ornaments. The bright and shiny metallics feel festive for Christmas and New Years but the neutrals work well throughout the winter season.
  • Christmas Tree Centerpiece: For those of us who like to embrace the whimsy of the season or have kids at home, miniature Christmas trees, red and green ornaments, and red votives offer no shortage of holiday cheer.
  • Gold Holiday Centerpiece: The warm, golden glow of mercury glass votives, gold crushed glass, and cream and metallic ornaments will take you from early December to a festive New Year’s Eve. Remove the ornaments and this centerpiece has major staying power.

Festive Holiday Décor

Around the holidays, more is more! Whether you’re looking for a small space solution or just like a bit of holiday cheer in every corner, our holiday décor collection is filled with inspired ideas from our design team.

  • Christmas Trees

There’s always room for one more. Whether it’s for your kitchen island, your mantle, or a great hostess gift, our collection of miniature trees make things merry and bright. For a twist on tradition, our metal tree with miniature ornaments makes a big impact in a small space. For a brilliant hostess gift, try our ‘tree in a bag’*. A small tree and a box of miniature ornaments packed in a festive holiday bag is a great gift and perfect for the kitchen island, den or even the kids’ room.

  • Cedar & Pine Wreath: Our faux-cedar and pine wreaths are a great way to add fresh, artisanal style to your home. We love them lined-up on a table with pillar candles, hanging on doors and windows, or for a festive coffee or console table display, nestle one of our LED etched hurricanes in the center with a scattering of miniature ornaments.
  • Hurricane with Greenery & Lights: Our favorite rolled-edge hurricane easily transitions to the holidays with a few seasonal elements. It looks great with miniature ornaments piled-high, crushed glass, seasonal greenery, or with a strand of our gold lights coiled-in for a warm glow.
  • Seasonal Arrangements: From small seasonal accent pieces atop a desk or in your bathroom to larger arrangements on a coffee or console table, our holiday florals are a quick and easy way to bring color, texture, and a little holiday cheer to any space.

Christmas Ornaments, Advent Calendars, and Holiday Decorations

It’s the little details that make the holidays magic and our collection of novelty ornaments, miniature Bavarian villages, lighted advent calendars, and old-world figurines are Christmas traditions waiting to happen.

Whether you’re shopping online or in our recently designed Christmas shop, let us help you make the holidays happier…and a little easier with great holiday décor ideas.

Tray Chic

Leaves changing, cozy sweaters, football season, and all things pumpkin spice…Fall is in full swing and we couldn’t be more excited for the change of seasons. It’s also that time of year when we go from pumpkin-clad porches to Thanksgiving feasts to (I know, don’t say it so soon)…Christmas, in a matter of weeks.

One of our favorite design solutions (especially this time of year when you have decorator’s whiplash) is our instant centerpiece. If you’re a frequent shopper, you’ve no doubt seen our selection of beautiful and versatile centerpiece trays, ranging from shiny metallics to rustic wood trugs. Start with one of these trays, select a large format candle or handful of colored glass votives, and add seasonal decor elements of your choice. Voila! It’s as easy as that…and the best part is that it can be used all year long and easily updated by swapping out a few elements. Read more

Black and White Kitchen Design Project

Over the course of Homefest’s 20+ years, several customers have asked us for help designing the interior of their home. It wasn’t a service that we originally had planned to offer, but it made sense with our mix of lighting, furniture, artwork, bedding, decorative accessories and area rugs. Since the first request a dozen years ago, we’ve been involved with projects that range from a one-room kitchen re-model to several top-to-bottom total makeovers.

We recently finished a kitchen remodel for a couple of empty-nesters who wanted to open up a small, awkward kitchen and create a more functional space that would become the heart of the home for their large, extended family. We love the way Black and White Kitchen Design Project turned out.  The simplicity of the black and white color scheme is classic and modern at the same time.
