Traditional Pieces

When it comes to traditional Christmas style, there's nothing more festive than red and green. For a traditional Christmas door decoration that is sure to please, look no further than the Evergreen Pinecone Wreath from Olive & Cocoa. This stunning wreath greets guests with a burst of Christmas spirit! A gathering of preserved pine sprigs is interspersed with red berries, pinecones and slices of orange for a cheerful decoration that will brighten your entryway all season long.

From reindeer and Santa Claus, to bright red and green, there are endless Christmas themes to work with. Rather than attempting to incorporate every one of them into your holiday and seasonal decor, thoughtfully select one or two of your favorite holiday themes to tie your home together. If you feel particularly fond of Santa Claus, display a thoughtful collection of Christmas Santa decorations in the most prominent spaces of your home, ensuring your living room, kitchen, and mantel decorations are a hot topic of discussion during any Christmas get-togethers. If reindeer are more your mode, choose a few elegant reindeer-themed pieces and pair them with holly or pine. Here are some Santa and Reindeer Christmas decoration ideas for you to really spruce up your holiday and seasonal decor.

Reindeer decorations give a feeling of movement and nature, and they're just so adorable! Our Dasher's Flight Deer and Sled is a beautiful piece of holiday table decor that's made from reclaimed metal for a rustic look. The open sleigh also provides the perfect container for holding Christmas treats or small presents. If you're hunting for something with classic elegance, our Emerald Flocked Stag Head is the perfect choice.

Santa Claus is a great traditional character to use in your holiday decorating, especially if you have children around. The key is choosing a Santa style rather than mixing and matching. For a modern take on the traditional Santa Claus, the Mod Santa Trio from Olive & Cocoa is a great choice for holiday table decor. If you're the type that likes to stick to tradition, Jingle Bell & Kris Kringle will surely spread holiday cheer. For an elegant all-white style, our Nordic Santa is stunning.

A scattering of mini trees brighten up those dreary winter days. The best thing about decorative Christmas trees is you can dress them up or down to fit your personal style. Add glass balls and ornaments for a cheerful look, or keep branches bare for a minimalist appearance.
