If you’re the type who cringes at Christmas songs before Thanksgiving (no judgment), this festive – but not too festive – detail might be suitable for your minimalist décor.

Bold (sans jarring holiday color) feather trees invoke “a white, wintry setting with lots of textures,” writes stylist and Rue Living Inspirer Matthew Mead. “Everlasting and non-shedding, these trees look spectacular the whole month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So versatile and eye-catching that they make a great focal point almost anywhere.”

Want specifics? Mead’s telling.

From copying a girl at work to immortalizing the family bulldog (by way of Warhol), here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. Mirror ball ornaments. Since I was at least age five, my mom’s go-to holiday décor has been these little mirror balls – so here’s to continuing tradition in my own teeny apartment. The best part? They totally pass as year-round details (and year-round reason to get dancing). Our The 12 Days of Merry: Time to Trim the Tree Boutique opens Sunday, November 11, at 11AM ET.

2. AllPopArt Custom Classic Pop Warhol Portrait. No – I am not a cat lady. This pop print is merely a prime example of AllPopArt’s unrivaled handiwork. There’s a very adorable English bulldog I know (ahem, Maddie Stanley) who deserves to be immortalized by way of Warhol. Our AllPopArt Boutique opens Monday, November 13, at 11AM ET.

3. Kelsi Dagger boot. A girl in the office has a pair of boots like these and looks so, so cool in them. I’ve been aggressively coveting them ever since their debut – and now they’re finally about to become mine. Our Long Live Boots: Wear Now, Love Forever Styles Boutique opens Tuesday, November 12, at 11AM ET.
