Holiday Decorating with a Red & White Theme at SYW

Decorating for the holiday season means unpacking all of those boxes of ornaments, accents and decorative sculptures that have been tucked away since last year, waiting patiently to shine on display once more. Many people decorate with different themes in their homes, be it certain color combinations, types of sculptures such as all snowmen or all penguins, or the like. Here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we aim to make decorating your home as easy as possible, and have compiled some of our favorite decorating themes for you to gather inspiration from. Today we are featuring a red and white theme. A classic, as sweet as peppermint decorating choice that works year after year.

Red and White Lighting

Red is a warm, emotional color whereas white is an innocent and simple color. Perhaps the combination of these two is what truly makes the contrast so enjoyable.  Here we feature very easy ways to incorporate red and white colors into your home decor this year, starting with lighting options. For flame-free, smoke-free lighting, try our Scented Forever Candle, in the Pomegranate scent and red color, or choose white, with a vanilla scent. Or, try our set of two Lighted Cardinal Glass Jars. Crackled glass and painted features make for magical lighting.

Peppermints Collection Storage Peppermint Accents

Peppermint may be the most popular treat during the holiday season. A candy cane slowly melting in hot chocolate, a swirl of white and red sweetness with the familiar scent of peppermint. Have your fill of peppermint, without the sugar, with our collection of red and white striped items. Here we feature our Peppermints Collection, to store all of your baking supplies in the kitchen, and other items, too! Store your salt and pepper in the Peppermint Salt and Pepper Shakers all season long for added festivity.

Red & White for Dining and Living Rooms


You have carried the theme throughout the house, but how about your dining room table? Enhance the look of the red and white contrast by using our Believe Table Runner, or the Felt Star Runner on your table or mantel space all season long. Comfortable wool chair pads like our Snowflake Hooked Wool option, offer sturdy seating with red and white charm.

Mini Chenille Candy Canes Bring It All Together on Your Holiday Tree

Nothing says the holidays more than a fresh evergreen tree adding a wonderful scent to your home all season long. Decorate that tree in tune with the rest of the red and white decorations around the house. Start simple with our set of two Crochet and Burgundy Glass Ornaments, and enhance the theme with our set of 12 Mini Chenille Candy Canes. The red and white Felt Pinecone Snowman Ornament will add a touch of whimsical charm. Any of these items would also make fantastic gifts!
