It's hard to resist going all out when decorating for the holidays. We get it: When you're watching The Holiday on repeat, it's tempting to drape an evergreen garland over every banister, mantel, and door frame in sight. Luckily, contrary to what you might think, you don't need to spend a ton to transform your space into a winter wonderland that rivals the set of a Nancy Meyer's movie.
For a masterclass in how to deck the halls on a dime, we turned to popular lifestyle blogger Camille Styles who, we should mention, is something of an expert when it comes to decorating on a budget. To up the stakes, we tasked the savvy shopper a particularly daunting challenge that really put her penny-pinching abilities to the test. We only gave Styles $100 to show us how she'd decorate every room—from the entryway to the living room to the dining room—for the holidays with items from—wait for it—Target.
Now trust us when we say that you're going to want to add everything she selected to your cart (which, if you did, would cost you less than $500). Ready to peruse her picks? Keep scrolling to shop Camille Styles' affordable Target holiday décor edit.
"An entryway is the perfect place to greet guests with a major dose of holiday cheer, and these Threshold lanterns do just the trick," says Styles. "A bright, berry-studded wreath like this one from Hearth & Hand with Magnolia and this Opalhouse welcome mat say, 'Come on in and stay awhile.'"
Entryway total: $100
"Metallic foliage, like these Threshold gold pinecone ornaments and wreath, along with a cozy throw tossed over the couch, add luxe touches that make the living room the coziest spot in the house," advises Style. "This small Threshold Christmas tree brings winter wonderland vibes to small spaces, and the basket is a fun, unexpected departure from a tree skirt," she explains.
Living room total: $92
"The first party I'll be hosting this season is a Christmas tea for some of my best friends and their daughters," reveals Styles. "I love to lay a neutral foundation with a natural runner (the tassels on this Opalhouse runner keep it fun!) and set out our drinks on a gold tray, like this Opalhouse decorative tray that looks way more expensive than it actually is," she adds. "Whimsical plates, polka dots, pom-poms and fun city prints inspired by the streets of Amsterdam and Paris add vibrant pops of color that feel super festive and playful."
Dining room total: $120
"Nothing's better than curling up in bed with a good book on a winter's night, so my holiday updates in the bedroom are all about adding texture and warmth," confesses Styles. "Cozy materials like velvet and chenille from this Threshold throw and lumbar pillow are perfect for snuggling. I also love an understated white wreath like this Threshold mixed white berry wreath or small reindeer figurines that give a nod to holiday without feeling kitschy."
Bedroom total: $103
"Although the bathroom isn't typically the first place people think of to decorate, HOW FUN would it be to deck out the bathroom to welcome overnight guests or partygoers? Think along the lines of this spirited Threshold towel and faux poinsettia plant," says Styles. "I love the unexpected touches of this Opalhouse Christmas tree soap pump, and of course, a deliciously scented holiday candle burning like this Threshold sugar cookie scented candle—yum!"
Bathroom total: $69
Grand total: $484
