6 Ideas for Creating a Cozy Christmas Mood
Thank you, Pottery Barn, for sponsoring this post. All opinions and text are my own.
There’s no other time of year like Christmas for feeling all warm and cozy inside. All the festivities, family, and food make it such a special time of year. We look forward to Christmas for months and even start playing Christmas music in November. Yeah, we’re those people. And as soon as the Thanksgiving dishes and decorations are put away I start getting the house ready for Christmas.

I love it when someone says that our house is cozy, especially during the holidays. Making people feel like they can relax and enjoy themselves is something I strive for. And there are some very simple ways to add a cozy feeling to any home.
Today I’m excited to be teaming up with one of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn, and sharing 5 easy ways to make your home more cozy. Let me know which idea is your favorite, and feel free to leave any additional ideas in the comments.
1. Add a soft, fuzzy throw blanket to the bedroom
Snuggling up under a soft warm throw blanket is one of my favorite ways to feel cozy during the cold winter months. I love to cover up with this plush faux fur throw and read at night before I go to sleep. Sometimes on chilly nights I pull it up over the blanket while I sleep. It’s unbelievably soft and fuzzy.
2. Little decorative touches throughout the house
The red velvet ribbon and the old worn books add character and texture and make this night stand super cozy.
3. Make the front porch welcoming
Adding Christmas decorations to the front porch adds instant charm to your house. Whether it’s with wrapped boxes, greenery, or and old sled, it’s a wonderful way to greet your guests.
A homemade wreath made with fresh evergreen clippings is a great way to add even more charm to the setting.
You just can’t go wrong with cookies any time of the year, but especially at Christmas. Set out some vintage silverware and kitchen linens to add a an even cozier vibe to the setting.
5. Hot cocoa
Turn up the cozy factor with some hot cocoa served in cute, whimsical Santa mugs. We all love to sip cocoa from these fun mugs.
Set out marshmallows, peppermint sticks, and chocolate chips and you’ve got a perfect hot cocoa bar.
6. Add soft pillows and throws to your sofa
Our faux fur trimmed velvet pillows and the faux fur throw make this the favorite spot in the family room for movie night. Although it’s so comfy here that it’s easy to fall asleep and miss the movie altogether. That’s usually a sacrifice I’m willing to make. 🙂

Love all these great ideas for a cozy Christmas. Your festive photos are getting me in the mood!
Thanks Mary Alice! It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas! Have a great week. ~ Angie
I do not like to think about Christmas until after Thanksgiving but you have started my wheels rolling. I love to lay in bed and read while drinking hot chocolate. I am retired so don't worry about going to work.
I do most of my Christmas decorating after Thanksgiving too. And laying in bed reading is a wonderful way to spend some time. Especially with hot chocolate! Thanks for dropping by. ~ Angie
Great ideas! I use a lot of these in my decorating. My house is at it's best at Christmas and very cozy. My husband comments on it every year even though I change up the décor.
Thanks! We love the cozy look at our house, especially at Christmas. It's great that your husband likes it too! Thanks for dropping by. ~ Angie
I love pottery barn, have lots of there furniture pieces and accents! Something about a fur throw that screams winter! Nice post. Maria
Me too Maria. I have several items from there and love them all. And the faux fur throw has become one of my favorite things.
Oh my gosh I love every single thing…the red wagon, the juniper wreath, the little mugs. What a cozy Christmas your family will have. Well done!
Thanks Ann! We love making things cozy around here, especially at Christmas.
I love how you decorated the front porch! So cute! Everything else is really nice and you did create a cozy look! Love Pottery Barn for Christmas!
Thanks Lois. The front porch is one of my favorite places to decorate for Christmas. I also love Pottery Barn for Christmas and any time! ~ Angie
I had a little red wagon like yours and I am so sad I sold it. You have given me plenty of inspiration for the day after Thanksgiving when all the Christmas decorations are unpacked.
That's too bad that you sold it. I guess we can't keep everything though. Enjoy your Christmas decorating! ~ Angie
That throw is a marvel. It makes you want to nap just looking at it. Restful Christmas at your home. Lovely pics.
Yes! The throw is amazing! It's so snuggly and soft. Thanks for dropping by. ~ Angie
Everything looks beautiful, the faux throw is a favorite. Also the kids would love a hot cocoa bar. Who wouldn't? Thanks for the holiday inspiration.
Thanks Brooke. It's my favorite. And our kids love the hot cocoa bar. Thanks for stopping by. ~ Angie

It's all so so beautiful I would have a hard time choosing but I really love that red pillow with the fur trim. And those Santa cups remind me so much of my grandma who always had those for us at Christmas time full of hot chocolate
Those mugs make me smile every time I look at them. I'll bet you loved drinking from them at your grandmother's house. And the red pillow is as comfortable is it is pretty!
Great photos! And I'm with the rest — that throw just looks deliciously cozy.
Thanks Pam! Haha! It is definitely deliciously cozy!! 🙂
