See the Holiday Decorations That Are Crushing It in DC

Christmas FTW.

’Tis the season to decorate your house in the holiday spirit–whatever that means to you–and to share that material joy and beauty on Instagram. Here are a handful of the best holiday decorations Washingtonians have to offer.


Mr. Holiday goes all out with his decorations no matter what we’re celebrating. This year’s line up includes various Christmas dogs in addition to the traditional reindeer and snowmen.


Wreaths are always a classic home decoration–and this one uses those lights perfectly.


Spherical plants! Definitely a departure from the old school pine. Kind of reminiscent of a poofy poodle.


This one is more of a public display, but how could we not include it?! It’s like a field of flowers lighting up the evening.


This brightly colored wreath is a refreshing break from the traditional.


Casual Santa, caught in Alexandria just reading up on his naughty or nice list.


Wreaths on wreaths on wreaths.


These nutcrackers look a little more like bouncers…but the colors definitely add more holiday cheer to this Georgetown stoop.


This home in Virginia is giving Mr. Holiday some competition – so many lights!


Mr. Holiday isn’t just for the outdoors – this indoor decoration perfectly captures the grace of reindeer.


This last one is more inspirational–because it’s SO PRETTY. Get out there and crush the holiday decorating scene, Washingtonians.
