Neutral Christmas Decor Items
If a minimalist Christmas style is more to your liking, look no further for ideas! This winter wonderland is a minimalist's dream with simple color schemes and beautiful decoration that makes a big impact. Take a look at more specifics for Christmas neutral decorating here.
If you have banisters or a fireplace mantel, this is a fun way to add garland. I prefer to use Norfolk garland and velvet ribbon to tie it onto my stair banister. Add string lights or fairy lights for a little extra sparkle, though I love the simplicity of the greenery alone. (See links below for all this holiday decor.)
Achieve this same look by draping garland across the top or hanging along the front of your Christmas mantel. Add a few matching Christmas stockings and your look will be complete.
Don't underestimate the value of a good ribbon. Satin ribbon is a simple option for adding Christmas cheer to your holiday packages. White boxes with the neutral greens and browns are the perfect way to minimize. You can also use the same ribbon for embellishing your Christmas tree decorations. And don't forget to throw in a cute tree skirt too.
I also used ribbon on the mantel and tree to tie everything together.
Small Gold Accents
Gold is another color that will work in a neutral color palette. The bells are a great way to add a touch of vintage flair. And the gold candle sticks add an elegant touch and tie in with the gold beads.
Have you ever thought about incorporating white into your tree? I absolutely love these white tree ornaments because they can go with anything. Use a velvet ribbon to hang these, instead of a hook or fishing line. The added elegance and color makes a big difference.

Tabletop and Mantel Decor
Tabletop Christmas trees like this wool felt tree are a perfect accent for a coffee table or adding onto your Christmas mantel.
Pinewood and stoneware mini trees are ideal for Christmas table decorations. Add them as a feature focal point for your dining room table or use for open shelving.
These tree shaped taper candles are some of the best Christmas decorations for placing on a mantel or using on a dining table for added elegance. The neutral beige coloring fits right in for a natural look.
Small figurines like this one are nice because you can usually use them for multiple holidays in fall and winter. The natural wood coloring makes it so the decor isn't overwhelming, but also stands out.
Gold candle holders are another way to add elegance. Throw in some flameless candles and enjoy the subtle gold sparkle. The different heights brings needed dimension and style.
Beautiful Norfolk Pine garland that I use on my stair bannister and mantel. I've even thrown some on my dining table center for more festive Christmas decorations at the table.
Boxwood wreaths are a beautiful neutral accessory to any type of decor. Hang on your front door or if it is a small wreath, add it to your interior decor and prop up on your mantel or along an entry table.
I'm all about the Christmas tree sparkles and this flocked glass ornament is no exception. These small ornaments are neutral and fit right in with your other tree decor.
Don't miss these beautiful gold bells that make the perfect accent to your hanging on a tree, mantel or door.
Gold bead garland can be really classy when you add it to the right Christmas tree or string it along a mantel. Plus, if you end up pairing it with Christmas lights it will really add an extra sparkle.
These frozen white and silver glass ornaments add the perfect amount of elegance to a neutral space.
Golden brown satin ribbon is stunning with earthy tones and natural palette. But it is also available in other colors too!
Velvet ribbon makes a gorgeous accent when using it to tie ornaments or as a trim.

I love these wood beads because you can do so much with them. One of my favorites is to use them as filler decor inside or on my front porch. These are nice because they also come in a few different size options.
I love garland and these are so cute! This peppermint candy theme is adorable and the tiered look makes it fuller.
Here is another cute candy theme garland in traditional red and green colors. So cute!
Balls like these are perfect filler items for jars or lanterns. I love the Christmas pattern. Ornaments have the same use, but these are less breakable. These are also a good option for making a wreath!
These are similar to above, but shaped like those peppermint candies. Another classy red and white option.
Throws and pillows are perfect for any home decor because they are so versatile. Get yourself a cute Christmas themed one like this, toss in a few pillows and you're set!
