Holidays may look different this year, but that doesn’t mean we have to forget about festivity all together. The focus has just shifted from entertaining large groups of our friends and family to something a little bit more intimate and, of course, safe.

This year, the focus really is on the family. And no one knows that better than lifestyle blogger and Target Style Expert Camille Styles.

The holidays are my favorite time to slow down and reconnect with the people I love, which feels especially meaningful this year.

Styles partnered with Target to showcase some of her favorite ways to make this special season feel as meaningful as possible.

“The holidays are my favorite time to slow down and reconnect with the people I love, which feels especially meaningful this year,” she explains. “For this year’s holiday décor, I’m focusing on a few new pieces from Target’s holiday collection that spark joy and make the house magical.”

Luckily, Styles is giving us a sneak peek at her 2020 holiday display—and sharing her favorite tips for recreating the look at home.

“I love adding a simple wreath over my mantel to set the scene in my living room and a good garland draped underneath is always a must. To add an instant dose of holiday cheer, simply swap out your usual throws and pillows for warm, festive options like this and this.”

Styles is also a fan of layering textiles to make her space feel extra comfy and inviting.

“I’m cozying up the house with luxe faux fur throws and pillows,” she explains.

But if you want to take that coziness a step further, Styles suggests styling those textiles beyond the sofa too.

“These white furry stockings are also such a fun addition this year,” she says. “And they are a great way to add in some holiday style without breaking the bank.”

Of course, once the house is all decorated it’s time to sit down with your loved ones for a holiday meal. To make sure she’s able to enjoy her holiday family time to the fullest, Styles swears by “set it and forget it” food displays.

“This year, I created a vegetable crudité “wreath” consisting of my favorite veggies such as broccolini and asparagus as the perfect way to give a nod to our Christmas theme without going overboard cheesy,” she tells us.
