Decorating For The Holidays With Pottery Barn

From Thanksgiving to Christmas and every thing in between, bringing the holidays into my home is one of my favorite things to do.  There is nothing more welcoming than feeling the season the minute you open the door.   We finally have a home where we could deck the halls and what better way to get holiday ready than with Pottery Barn.

Pottery Barn, located at the Westfield UTC Center, has some of the best decorating ideas to get you holiday ready.  Their expert team came over and showed me what was trending this holiday season.  While a beautiful Christmas Tree may always take center stage, I have learned that the entryway, mantle, table, and staircase are just as important.  Pottery Barn’s twist on tradition with lots of layering and different textures will make anyone’s home more memorable and trending in style.

The Entryway

I wanted something that was classic and really shined when people entered my home.  The design team decided to take away my lamps and decorate with flameless candles, large ornaments, garland, lit trees and made use of chargers and candle holders to get those various heights.  Their choices kept the space nature-inspired and the lit trees and candles gave it a timeless elegance.



The Dining Table

What better way to give your home a more vivid focal point this Christmas than being festive with fur.  Fur and plaid has taken center stage as a signature of Pottery Barn this season.  Their design team showed me how to have a dinner party that would welcome my guests to a beautiful holiday meal.

No matter what’s on the menu, Pottery Barn’s table settings will have your guests ready for a festive feast.  “Think in layers,” the girls told me.  They used pedestals to get height and create interest with strategically placed holiday decor like reindeer, and lit trees to really set the stage.  The wood chargers with leather straps were just gorgeous and really raised the plates beautifully.  The plaid plates above the white gave the perfect pop of texture and color, while the napkin rings were my kids’ favorite.

The Mantle

You shouldn’t be afraid to decorate your mantle if you have a TV above it.  The design team from the Pottery Barn at the Westfield UTC Mall was extremely clever when putting together my mantle.  Though we all agree the mantle looks best without the TV, they surely did a fantastic job of not making it the focal point.

They layered garland, antler stocking holders, flameless birch wax candles and pre-lit mini trees.  Lower, by the fireplace, they used their extra-large lanterns, pre-lit trees and pre-lit natural twig globes.  The fur and plaid stocking tied it all together giving the space an instant holiday cheer.

Pottery Barn is now offering a tree decorating service that starts at $179 and it includes 2 associates that will do the following:

-build and fluff an artificial tree
-light the tree
-hang ornaments and decor
(Live trees must already be set up, stabilized and ready for lighting and decorating)

My home is a blank slate and we still have white walls.  The various spaces throughout dictate a more natural holiday palette with my indoor/outdoor living.  I love the earthy colors of Pottery Barn’s selection this year from the fur place mats to the natural chargers and the birch candles,  The little pop of plaid here and there unified the look in each space.  We all know Christmas calls for red, white and green, but with Pottery Barn’s decorating advice, I now know I don’t have to do that. I hope this post gets you holiday inspired to use different textures when layering your spaces.

Since the dream team from Pottery Barn at the Westfield UTC Mall left, I gave my staircase and tree a try with some of their online selections.  I think they would approve of my efforts.  What do you think?  Comment Below!  Tell me all about your decorating favorites this holiday season.
