We put out the call to all Homies following Offbeat Home & Life’s Instagram to share their favorite offbeat & geeky holiday decor. I shared my partner’s board game tree (see below), and the Homies did NOT disappoint. There are stockings hung on wall art, decorated Tulipop trees, Nightmare Before Christmas decor, and even an upside down tree(!).
If you’re just getting to sending out those holiday cards to your nearest and dearest, you may be stumped for what kind to send. Might we suggest: sugar brightly hued, rainbow covered, and intensely merry holiday cards? From unicorn-pulled sleighs to “reinbows” (yep, that’s a portmanteau for rainbow reindeer!) to making the yuletide gay rainbow-style, there are colorful holiday cards in your future.
Let’s find the best colorful card for you on this long winter’s night. Er day. Whenever you’re reading this…
I was searching around for something to replace a Doctor Who angel Christmas tree topper (I waited too long and they’re sold out now, boo) it occurred to me that I’d LOVE to see what other Offbeat Homies have for their holiday decor.
The holidays are fast approaching. Both my husband and I come from families who love the holidays, so we both are super excited to have our own place to holiday-ify and celebrate together. However, the problem is we have NO room to store any decorations post-holidays. How do the Homies who live in small spaces decorate their homes without generating the tubs of decor to store away later?
I put out the call for our Homies to send us their holiday decorations. Damnit, I want to see how y’all offbeat the holidays. And WOW did I get some amazing peeks into your homes. We’ve got alien-head tree-toppers, Mid-century Christmanukkah decor, beer ornaments, and trees that are both sideways AND upside down!
I’ve taken the interwebs to find some of my favorite non-sucky holiday tunes. A lot of them are so non-overdone that they’re songs you may not have ever heard before from artists you’ve never heard of. And some of them are songs you’ve heard a lot, but from artists that make them sound new again. Grab a cup of cider and have a listen…
I celebrated the first night of Hanukkah with my bestest buddies, both Jewish and gentile. Now most of you might remember that I am kitchen-challenged. So I was shocked when my friend Kimmy told me that she would be putting me in charge of making the chocolate dreidel treats a la freaking Martha Stewart. Homies, you’ll be so proud: with a LOT of coaching and hand-holding, I made the chocolate marshmallow dreidel and, therefore, so can you!
This colorful, modern take on the Hanukkah menorah is great for small spaces, and crafts up very quickly. Tissue paper lends a beautiful mosaic look.
