There is something about elegant Christmas decorating ideas that always charms me the most.  Maybe it is the little girl in me, who always dreamed about what Christmas was like in the large mansions down on main street.

Well, I am still living a plain but sweet lifestyle. And, I believe you can add elegance to your home no matter what your budget.  So, here are a few ideas that I hope you enjoy.

A beautiful embroidered pillow, makes a chair come alive.  Especially, if it has some “bling”.  I found this pillow at a local discount store.

This is my Christmas table centerpiece.  I added some decorative Christmas ornaments and real cranberries to this urn.  A large ornament sits in the middle topped off with a pretty bow.  The entire centerpiece sits on an oval mirror for added beauty.

A large glass candle lantern is flanked by two silver reindeer.  I placed a large candle in the lantern, and then put small gold ornaments all around the candle.

I added artificial pine pieces around the lantern to help “nestle” it in. Candles are one of the easiest ways to add elegance to your Christmas decorating ideas.

A Sweet Christmas Village

I love lighted Christmas houses.  Mine sit on top of a table in my living room.   My daughter arranges the scene every year. She places fake snow around the houses, and even on the rooftops of the little houses.

I love the evening hours when I can gaze at the little houses while sitting by the fire.

Just a Touch of Green

Adding a little greenery in areas around the house is one of my favorite elegant Christmas decorating ideas.  It is easy and simple, but really brings the spirit of Christmas into every room.

My living room tree is stuffed with ribbon, and shiny ornaments. Instead of a bow at the top of the tree, I place ice twigs and branches.

When wrapping my presents, I always try to add shiny ribbon and bows.  The lights from the tree just sparkle off of the packages and look so beautiful.

If there is time, I will really get creative with my packages by hot gluing on a few Christmas sprigs and berries.

Christmas Artwork

I love finding unique Christmas artwork.  I bought this handsome Santa at a garage sale for $2.  I had him re-framed and think he is gorgeous.  He is hung above my chimney with care.

This is a Santa I painted a few years ago.  He is named the “six finger Santa”, because unbeknownst to me, I had painted an extra pinkie finger and didn’t realize it until my kids noticed!  So, needless to say, I had some erasing and re-painting to do!

This is another painting I did, and it does not qualify for “elegant”, but it is loved anyway.

These old windows hang above my desk. I made two swags and hung them with 3M hooks.

I found these rustic Christmas ornaments at T.J. Maxx and thought they were so unique. Adding little gold sprigs made the marriage of rustic and elegance perfection.

My stairs are decorated simply, but beautifully.  I use pine swags, then add a clear wide iridescent ribbon, and finally these grapevine glitter bells.

Christmas towels hung in the guest bathroom, are a fabulous way to decorate for the holidays.

There are several tabletop Christmas trees in my house.  This one is in the master bedroom.  Use different decorating styles for your trees if you have several. This one is a woodland theme with nature elements added like rolled twig ribbon, snowball garland, and a little white bird on top.
