It is official. I am ready to start thinking, planning and scheming for Christmas.

So, I thought for today’s Saturday Market, I would share some holiday home decorating ideas.

Last year, I filled our home with a lot neutrals and greens – but this year, I say bring on the reds!

Here are some fun ways to bring a mixture of reds, textures and a little bit of whimsy into your home this Christmas.

1. Something about the color and shine of these cow bells I just love.

2. Okay, this is a splurge. I have long expressed my love of silhouettes and embroidery. And these two bring them together beautifully. And with red. Love.

3. I love the simplicity of this stocking. And I love the price.

4. A little splurge, but I also have a soft spot for anything French, especially at Christmas.

5. I have always believed that when I see a cardinal, it is a little check in from my Grandfather. I still miss him so, especially at Christmas. I may be buying this one for myself.

6. Just plain cute salt and pepper shakers.

7. Again, a splurge, again embroidery – but man, do I love this pillow. They also make one with Paris.

8. Simple, pretty and a great contrast with the red.

9. Another silhouette – I am consistent if nothing else. And the classic Christmas images are just perfect.

How about you, what is your plan for decorating? Classic red? Green? A mix? Or do you go in a whole other direction?

And if you are really not ready to think about Christmas, stop by to read my Thanksgiving Table and Thanksgiving Kitchen ideas.
