Like her former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast-mates Teresa Giudice and Jennifer Aydin, alum Caroline Manzo is feeling festive these days as she gets her house ready for the holidays. There’s one big difference in Caroline’s approach this year, though… way less bling!
In a post shared to her Instagram account, Caroline showcased the au natural way she decorated her home’s soaring entryway and spiral staircase. Wrapping the railings in garland, flocked pinecones, and white branches, Caroline also hung her family’s stockings from the stairs instead of her mantle — such a great idea!
Caroline also accented the area with an adorable “Merry Christmas” pillow and a metal lantern with red ribbons and bows. “Keeping it simple this year. A little less bling never hurt anyone!" she captioned the post.
We couldn’t agree more, Caroline — pared-down decorations are just as pretty as the bling-ed out versions! And the grandmother’s new aesthetic is carrying over to her dining room, too. In there, Caroline created a gorgeous, woodsy tablescape full of candles, pinecones, and garland.
See the results shared on her Instagram, check out Caroline’s foyer below, and be sure to tune in to RHONJ on Wednesdays at 8/7c!
