We got a head start on holiday decking out the Collins Cottage at Lido House Hotel in Newport Beach for the special season ahead. The full tour is coming soon (update: it's HERE), but we had to take advantage of these sales and share with you all our festive finds!! Happy decorating!!

FESTIVE FRONT DOOR
We only got the 30x48" Happy Howlidays Mat, but included the others for festive alternatives by the same designer. Love the oversized style.
Faux wreaths and garland brought the fresh green feel into the cottage, without the worry of keeping them alive. These whimsical wreaths hang in the windows of our octagon-shaped living room and front door, while a smaller and stiffer wreath completes the kitchen decor.
Cedar garland stepped up our stair rail game with its feathery branches, also battery-operated.
ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE
A sunkissed-color scheme and natural textures kicked off our coastal-chic Christmas tree (love the shape + sparseness of this one). Then we sprinkled in one-off ornaments for personality, each adding to the beachy theme. If you've been up to Topside, the rooftop bar at Lido House Hotel, you may recognize the mermaid!
This capiz shell star topped off the tree with the perfect amount of seaside sophistication. We originally ordered this one, but it didn't come in time for our install so the Amazon dupe did the trick!
A woven tree collar conceals the faux tree base and adds a touch more of coastal character. We also considered these -- zigzag woven tree collar • black woven tree collar • hammered brass tree collar -- and bet they would make a great holiday statement!
Your book collection is about to get more spirited! These beautiful covers make a statement on coffee tables and shelves while offering sweet stories and recipes to share.
HOT COCOA BAR
DECKING THE DECK
Our "stay awhile" sign is home of the festive photo ops. Sunbursts sparkle in the sun on the green wall and would look great hanging from a roofline or fence. String lights keep the sparkle strong all night long. There was a lot of DIYing (and time) involved in the painted surfboard designs and wooden presents so no finished products to link there but let us know if you want some tips for the handmade pieces!
Around the octagon lounge, fluffy garland and oversized ornaments hang for a pop of holiday color seen from above and below. We got the blue, orange, white, red and gold ornaments, and also spray painted these gray ones pink to coordinate with our colors inside.
WRAPPED IN STYLE
The style doesn't have to end with your tree decor, continue your scheme into the gift wrap for an extra special touch. You may even get style points with the people on your gift list!
We styled this palm tree art with tiny red bows for a coastal take on traditional Christmas and leaned the piece in our kitchen shelfie.
Our woody model carrying a tree and surfboards didn't make it in time but this classic red truck was a great book topper in our living room set up.
