First, let’s state the obvious: Christmas is in a few short weeks. But before the panic that always seems to pop up this time of year sets in, take a minute to kick back with some of our favorite festive Instagram feeds. We’re continuing the seasonal journey from last year, with five new accounts guaranteed to keep you entertained (and hopefully calm) until New Years.
For a Festive Mood
Without being too dramatic, it seems reasonable to say that the mother/daughter team behind All the Beautiful Things has somehow managed to capture the best parts of the holiday season in their feed. Go along on the ride as they hunt for a Christmas tree, making cookies and unbox ornaments. Even the most subtle flatlay of apples and chestnuts seems to have festive energy behind it. If you’re a fan of fine art photography and the most wonderful time of the year, this account is a must-follow.
For Tasty Treats
Is there anything more essential to the holiday season than baked goods? While homemade cookies might not turn out as planned, Abby Stolfo of The Urban Domestic has an Instagram feed that looks like your dream Pinterest board. After drooling over the “12 Days of Cookies,” head to her blog to recreate the recipes for yourself. Between the peppermint meringues and chocolate-dipped citrus shortbread, it’s easy to see why Santa demands cookies as payment.
For Home Decor Goals
Picture this: you’re snuggled up with a cup of hot cocoa next to a roaring fire, surrounded by rustic holiday decor. Make this dream a reality everyday by checking out Lucy Rose’s Instagram feed! The blogger behind The Birdie Farm covered every inch of her Colorado home in classic Christmas perfection: endless trees and pine branches, sparkling lights, vintage signs and plenty of cozy blankets. It’s a beautiful home, and great for anyone who’s looking for some holiday home inspiration.
For a Vintage Vibe
Vintage hunter Jesse Lauzon is giving us the best parts of holidays past: vintage ornaments and cutouts, retro advertisements and a welcome dose of thoughtful commentary. Lauzon hunts down some very unique pieces, and everything is super cheerful and beautifully arranged. The thrifted nature of these images celebrate decorations that become family heirlooms, and might even inspire you to try something a little different with your seasonal style this year. Currently having visions of scrolling through this feed while holiday music plays in the background…
For Holiday Card Inspiration
Gifts that have a personal touch are always the most appreciated so turn your feed into an endless source of handmade goodness! Illustrator Bianca Pozzi creates whimsical holiday images every day, and is currently sharing an “advent calendar” of fun daily designs. All of your favorite Christmas cast members are here: penguins, candy canes, mistletoe, and all done in Pozzi’s beautiful signature style. If this doesn’t inspire you to think outside the box with your holiday cards this year, nothing will.
