With Hanukkah starting tonight and Christmas just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to give you some last minute ideas for how to wrap and decorate for the holidays. We especially always like to think outside the (gift) box when planning our gift wrap (and use colors, patterns, and textures that are unexpected and fun). Here is what we have come up with for our own Hanukkah wrapping this year. Feel free to use this as inspiration in planning your own holiday gift wrap as well.

T Side: If I am being honest, I didn’t go as crazy with my planning, buying, and decorating as I usually do this year. My major focus was on our in a BOX line’s first holiday season and making that the best it could be! However, Hanukkah starts tonight, and I did want to make our home a bit festive for my girls and for it to feel different than all other nights of the year. I am most excited to light the candles tonight and for Joie to sing all of the songs she has learned in school. Here’s what I put together for our decor with what I had around the house and a few new things I got too!

This “Let’s Get Lit” banner is my favorite thing right now! I absolutely love adding a bit of humor into my holiday decor and cheeky sayings are kinda my thing!

All black gift wrap? Why not!? Who said Hanukkah wrapping paper had to be blue? I certainly didn’t. 

Last weekend, the girls, Phil, and I took a much needed breather away in the mountains. These sparkly pine cones are a nice reminder of our getaway (while most days this Winter will be spent at home). 

Our gorgeous menorah is ready to be lit with its fun silver ombre candles. We are excited for tonight!

L Side: I was excited to include my oldest daughter Ava when coming up with our holiday look this year. She came up with the idea of making it a “holographic Hanukkah” and I absolutely loved the idea! We had fun ordering holographic paper, ribbon, and tags online and even more fun with the disco ball lights we got! It’s all about the things that make you happy this year! 

I added a holographic touch into as many spaces as I could to tie everything together. 

Disco ball lights! Need I say more?

Even though everything is pretty much just silver, that extra holographic touch really adds something fun!

My favorite spot in my house is right next to the fire. The light shining on our gifts for each other makes me smile too!

We used these napkins in our Hanukkah BOXes this year, and I just had to have some of my own since they work perfectly with my decor. Looking forward to eight nights of cheer!

As you can see, we have our own distinct style when it comes to wrapping and decorating for the holidays. We try to make it festive and different from years past without going so literal or with expected colors. Wishing all of our readers a wonderful holiday season from Side by Side Design!

We are so excited to once again share our monthly inspiration with all of you! Each month, we look forward to getting the chance to sit down and really think about what’s inspiring us, make predictions for the month ahead, and reflect on the past month. As usual, we have each selected a photo that represents our overall inspiration and have paired it with two interior shots and two events that coordinate with its color scheme and overall concept. In addition, we have provided you with our designer tips to keep you on trend for the month ahead.

Tami’s inspired: I am having holiday withdrawals … Who can relate? Sorry, I am going to be real honest! I am so over Zoom and could seriously use some in person holiday gatherings right about now. It’s hard to get in the holiday spirit, wrap gifts with the same excitement that I usually have, and celebrate in general when we are still stuck at home. I know I sound like Negative Nancy, but there are two things keeping me going right now … Knowing that it is Sadie’s first Hanukkah and Joie’s first where she will really understand what is going on and seeing all of our hard work for Hanukkah and Christmas in a BOX come together. I sincerely hope everyone gets through this holiday safe and healthy (that’s truly what’s most important)!

What’s my designer tip this month? For anyone who is feeling the same way I am right now … Set low expectations! Sprinkle little bits of holiday cheer throughout your home as a reminder that 2021 is right around the corner. Purchase a few new items for your home (as holiday gifts for yourself) that you really love! You deserve it, and it’s the place where you are spending the most time after all! Most of all, celebrate to the extent you want and in a way that makes you happy. Nobody will judge because we are all going through this together right now!

Lauren’s inspired: This December, I’m walking out of 2020 like … With more confidence (but not this much confidence LOL)! A stronger sense of self, a stronger family unit, better habits, knowing I can get through a lot of what life throws my way, and that I am super grateful for everything I have. Last month of 2020 … See ya it’s been real! 

What’s my designer tip this month? End the year with confidence! When my daughter decided we should decorate for Hanukkah in this holographic hue, I went with it! Add little bits here and there in your decor or go all out. Nobody will judge. You do you! I am all about what makes us happy this year!

Here at Side by Side Design, we look forward to continuing to keep it real this month from our homes to yours … We have so many construction and design projects in the works that we can’t wait to show off, are full swing into the holiday season, and we have lots of BOXes, collections, and collaborations in the works too! If you haven’t already checked out our “in a BOX” line (a custom gifting experience) … You should! Don’t forget to visit us for our first Get Inspired post of the New Year (Thank goodness 2020 is almost behind us!) on January 1st for all new looks and inspiration!

It’s the end of the month, and we are extremely grateful for all of the design challenges and experiences that have come our way. Today, we continue to show you some of our favorites … 5 things that truly made us happy in the great big world of design this month. This has proven to be a great way for us to share sneak peeks into projects that are in the works (but not quite ready to show in their entirety), flashbacks of projects from the past, and highlight an interior or event vendor that deserves recognition. Enjoy!

#1: This birthday “celebration”! It’s no secret that events and the way we celebrate look a little different these days. This particular birthday was no exception. With LA County’s “Safer at Home” going back into effect, our clients have decided to celebrate in a really safe way. We decorated this birthday girl’s home with loads of balloons, a BOX of goodies, and even brought in the most amazing cake from Sweet and Saucy Shop. If you’re looking to add a little joy to a special day let us know! (Written by: Tami)

#2: This vibe! Now this is a dream inspiration board for me … and what’s even cooler is that I am in the process of bringing this room to life! I have been working on an amazing project for the last couple of months, have given a couple sneak peeks here and there into the construction and how that’s all coming along, and we are coming down to the wire now with finishing touches in the works daily. It’ll take a little longer until we are done and can really share some awesome finished pictures, but I just couldn’t wait to share something again! This is the inspiration for her main living room … and I’m obsessed! (Written by: Lauren)

#3: This baby BOX! We have been creating BOXes for many occasions, but  the orders keep coming in for new babies! We love bringing even more joy to these new parents (and to siblings of new babies as well). This particular baby BOX is one of my favorites we have created so far as it is filled with my favorite kind of print, and I love how monochromatic it turned out. Each item inside is truly unique. Check out our IG stories @sidebysidedesign to see more of what we are creating in a BOX! (Written by: Tami)

#4: This vendor! Every client has their priorities when it comes to fixtures in their home. When this particular client challenged me to find the perfect satin brass finish, I knew I didn’t want to disappoint. This amazing company from Italy had the most gorgeous fixtures that came in exactly the perfect finish. I knew my client would be in love! It’s hard to believe that they look even better installed than they did in the showroom … Stay tuned to see the rest of this magnificent bathroom and all of its Fantini fixtures. (Written by Lauren)

#5: This Thanksgiving collab! We love a great collaboration and especially love to see all of our planning become a reality! This Thanksgiving we worked with Darci of Darcuterie, and it was an absolute dream come true to see her gorgeous Darcuterie boards inside our BOXes! We can’t wait to work with this fabulous partner again soon! Check out our Holidays in a BOX highlight on IG to see what we are offering for the upcoming holidays!(Written by: Tami)

Follow us on Instagram @sidebysidedesign for more all month long as we share our deliveries and Designer Day! We plan to share our “Favorite Five” for the month of December on the 25th, and as always will be posting what’s inspiring us for the month ahead on the first Friday. See ya soon!
