As seen on HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes, designer Laurie March transformed TV personality Kendra Wilkinson and husband Hank Basketts' living room into a glittering, disco-inspired Holiday wonderland featuring a twelve-foot tall, white Christmas tree with deep blue and chartreuse ornaments, a custom mantle art piece, disco balls and copper-colored balloons on the ceiling. The tall, dramatic tree helps fill the large, empty space in Kendra's high ceiling living room.
It's great to be modern, but the holidays are all about tradition. So be sure to add a little retro styling to your holiday decor to celebrate all the joys of Christmas past. Don't be afraid to bring out the tinsel, your favorite red bows, and the traditional Christmas balls to deck the halls for your retro holiday. Photo courtesy of Mrs. Lilien
Cover inexpensive foam balls with yarn to create a rustic Christmas ornament the kids can hang on the tree or use to top wrapped gifts. Choose traditional wool or synthetic yarn for a smooth look or get creative by wrapping the balls with fun, novelty yarns with fluffy, faux-fur textures or variegated colors.
Create a bold, eye-catching centerpiece with red accessories. Use bright red ornament balls, berry sprigs and glittery tinsel garland to surround a plain white candle to add a touch of drama to your Christmas table.
This simple Country Christmas tree is ornamented with pine cones, brown glass balls, bronze disco balls, and letter and number stencils for a unique twist on traditional tree decorations. Brown paper packages tied with twine rest under the tree next to a wooden rocking horse. A yellow yarn wreath, light green polka dot stocking, and green stuffed toys add color against the dark drown painted brick wall.

HGTV fan Katie Watson came up with a fun and creative way for children to count down the 25 days of Christmas. Using simple square envelopes with string closures, she adorned each one with different holiday-inspired themes, patterns and colors. Inside each envelope Katie placed a coupon for each child that can be redeemed for something special at home, such as a cup of hot chocolate, a piece of Christmas candy or Mom reading a bedtime story. Strung up the banister with colorful foam balls, the advent banner is not only a fun family activity but an original piece of holiday decor, too.
