It might seem like overkill, but holiday decor is already here. The holidays are such a busy period that any head-start on hosting is always welcome, and that starts with sorting out all of your decor ahead of time.
I was surprised when Anthropologie released its holiday collection early, ahead of most other retailers. I loved the original collection, and it was packed with some of my top Christmas decor picks to date. But it hasn't stopped there – the retail giant just released even more Christmas decor pieces. As far as I'm concerned, it just keeps getting better, as some of the latest additions are now some of my favorite pieces in the collection.
If you’re as obsessed with Anthropologie holiday collection as we are, you’re going to want to get decorating ASAP. From this year’s new and improved holiday house wreath to an absolutely iconic holiday plate collection, here are some of the best picks from the latest drop of Anthropologie holiday decor.
The Best additions to Anthropologie Holiday Decor
Anthropologie’s seasonal juice glasses are always a hit, but we think this year’s holiday set is sure to become a collector’s item. This set of four glasses features mouth-blown glass with hand-pressed bead glass icons in the shapes of candy canes, Christmas trees, gingerbread, and snowmen.
Add a dash of sparkle to your Christmas tree with this gorgeous Hedy Tree Topper from Anthropologie. The gold tree topper boasts a whimsical design that crowns the top of your tree with some celestial charm. We love it because it has a vintage feel yet is versatile enough to transcend styles and blend beautifully with more modern and minimalistic decor.
This mini wreath is made of preserved boxwood. It sits snugly around Christmas candles for subtle sophistication, and it's great bringing a little green freshness indoors when the leaves have all fallen from the trees.
Anthro just dropped their Twelve Days of Christmas Plate in collaboration with Lou Rota. The plates have a more decorative feel that can work well as decorative wall plates but are still functional enough to work for actual desserts. Depending on your dining needs, you can purchase each plate separately or buy the entire set. And, if you want to stick to a theme, Anthro also has a napkin set to match.
When it comes to holiday houses, Anthropologie always delivers with its collection of whimsical and enchanting designs. The Emily Taylor for George & Viv Light-Up Holiday Village brings a little Wes Anderson-core to festivities.
Last year’s Anthropologie holiday house wreath nearly broke the internet—and we’re somehow even more obsessed with this year’s Anthro wreath. The Light-Up Gondola Wreath boasts a cozy ski vibe with its collection of colorful gondolas sitting atop the clouds and frosted forest.
When should I put up holiday decor?
There's no hard-and-fast rule here. Some people go for it straight after Thanksgiving, but any week in December works.
When should I buy Christmas decor?
Based on experience, the best time is is just before Halloween. Lots of companies release their Christmas collections, there's plenty of stock, and there's less of a rush, so it's less stressful. It might seem way too early, but it's better to have the pieces and not need them yet than need them and not have them.
Anthropologie are just one of the retailers to drop their Christmas decor collections. Plenty of other retailers have also gone early. I've seen some cute options in the World Market holiday decor collection too, and there's plenty on offer in the McGee and Co holiday collection, too. For more budget options, there's the IKEA holiday collection, and we've even found some surprisingly cute Amazon holiday decor. Not all of it is good, but you can find some gems with a little digging.
