This holiday season is all about making up for lost time. For the gatherings we missed, the laid-back nights spent catching up over glasses of wine and cheese boards, and the warm embraces from the people we love. We want to help you and yours set the scene for these long-awaited reunions, so we're excited to let you know that our holiday shop is here. We have everything you need to make your time together this season memorable. Our gift guide will help you choose between our favorite styles to give—and get for yourself—this season, from cozy textiles to festive accents to standout hosting essentials. We're also here to share our styling advice, from taking a bold, maximalist approach to your look this season and embracing traditional colors, patterns, and decorations. So, let's light the candles, set the table, serve up your most-loved recipes, and soak in every little moment. Read on for more, and from all of us here at Lulu and Georgia, we wish you a happy, healthy holiday season.
Making your list and checking it twice is always a bit stressful, so we want to help get your shopping done as smoothly and early as possible. So, we've organized our favorite styles to give and get this year by capsules: Be Cozy, Be Festive, and Be Merry. Our cozy shop helps you curate a lounge-worthy space with chunky knits, fresh bedding, and relaxing aromas. Whether lounging on the couch or in your bed, wrap yourself in this House No. 23 Viso Bed Cover and light up a cedarwood-scented candle. Bring in the holiday cheer with our festive shop as we spotlight freshly-made greenery, vintage-inspired ornaments, and plenty of shimmer. Style your mantel with a garland and a modern menorah. Make sure to have elevated glassware for the merry shop, like this set of Hawkins New York Stemless Wine Glasses.
Our festivities this year call for a maximalist approach, with bold silhouettes and vibrant prints introducing plenty of holiday cheer. Start by layering a classic print, like these Heather Taylor Home Soho Tablecloth and Napkins. Handwoven from cotton, they offer the timeless appeal of a check pattern in a warm red palette. It's the perfect base to layer on all your plates, glassware, and accents.
Once you start with your red-and-white table linens, keep up the classic seasonal color palette with fresh greenery, and hints of gold in your dinnerware, serving pieces, and glasses. As we mentioned in our fall table styling guide, we recommend layering your plates for each place setting. It presents a more cohesive look and lets you add as many dishes to your table as possible. This gold-rimmed Costa Nova collection features a matte finish for pared-down elegance. Finish your tablescape with these versatile stemmed wine glasses.
For your holiday decorations, we prefer lots of vintage-inspired or organic styles, like handcrafted ornaments, freshly-cut garlands, and rustic accents. This Fresh Handmade Olive Leaf Wreath brings lush color and a crisp, seasonal fragrance. Or if you're styling a sideboard, pair a garland and dried botanicals in a textural vase for bold color and a touch of drama. Finish with a unique serving platter, like this Estelle Glass Cake Stand for your most delicious after-dinner treat.
