Family Friendly Holiday Decorating video transcript

A festive living room features a Christmas tree adorned with ornaments and lights, chairs, a sofa, and a coffee table with potpourri. Upbeat music plays.

ON SCREEN TEXT: OUR FAMILY-FRIENDLY HOLIDAY

EMILY: The Hendersons get into the holidays, all of us.

Emily Henderson and her two children, Charlie and Elliot, play around the Christmas tree.

EMILY: And I want our kids to, you know, explore their creativity and decorate however they want to. However, I still want it to look really beautiful.

Charlie rides on the side of a red Target shopping cart while Emily pushes. Various items are packed inside the cart. Elliot rides in the front seat.

EMILY: So with the help of Target in our house, I'm gonna show you how you can have a really kid- friendly holiday that still looks sophisticated.

The three Hendersons sit in the living room, arranging pillows and putting ornaments on the Christmas tree.

ON SCREEN TEXT: 1. BRING HOLIDAY MAGIC INTO THE KIDS' ROOMS

EMILY: The kids wanted really bright colors, and while of course everything can look good together on a tree, I wanted our living room to feel a little bit more neutral and calm.

Elliot's room features several small Christmas trees next to a baby blue chair and a white desk. Splotches of pink accent the white walls. Charlie's room sports baby blue walls with white trim and a fully-lit Christmas tree with presents underneath it.

EMILY: So we gave 'em their own trees to decorate in their own room, which they loved.

Emily, Elliot, and Charlie walk around a Target store, exploring the Wondershop section and looking at various Christmas items.

ON SCREEN TEXT: 2. LET THE KIDS PICK SOME ITEMS

EMILY: So we headed to Target's Wondershop to let the kids choose a tree, a tree topper, and they have a ton of great ornaments for only $3.

Emily narrates from the living room. She wears a red shirt with white polka dots.

EMILY: Now, they wanted literally everything there, and shopping with two toddlers isn't exactly easy, but having them choose a couple ornaments made them feel very grown up. Charlie's favorite color is red, which makes our job pretty easy this time of year.

Emily hangs up a plush shark's head on Charlie's bedroom wall. A candy cane hangs from its smiling mouth. A panda's and zebra's heads hang next to it.

ON SCREEN TEXT: CHARLIE'S ROOM "CLASSIC"

EMILY: Working with the current theme of his room, we brought in a green artificial tree and then decked it out with a bunch of shatterproof ornaments.

Emily turns on the lights on two small artificial trees.

EMILY: The twinkle lights and the holiday sheets make him actually really excited to go to bed. Elliot is barely two.

Elliot, a blonde, pig-tailed toddler, shakes a snow globe excitedly.

EMILY: So she has less opinions, as of now, so I got to play out my fantasy holiday in her room.

Elliot's room again shows the small trees and splotched pink and white wall.

ON SCREEN TEXT: ELLIOT'S ROOM "GLAM"

EMILY: It's silver, gold, and white, with no shortage of blush. I clustered a few small, skinny trees together to create a mini-forest, and then I peppered them with kid-friendly ornaments I knew she would love.

Emily hangs a lettered string reading "Merry Christmas" on Elliot's bedroom wall.

EMILY: Then I scattered this pink and glam motif all around her room. She loves it, but just to be clear, I wish it was my room.

Various shots of the living room show a fireplace, old-fashioned record player, and Christmas stockings.

EMILY: The living room is the main area of our house, where we spend almost all of our time, so I wanted to go all out, but I wanted it to still feel neutral and calm and easy to maintain.

Emily adjusts wooden toy houses on the shelf where Christmas stockings hang.

EMILY: I went with a color palette of blues, grays, greens, silvers, blacks, and whites, and then I warmed it up with some wood and gold tones.

A wooden reindeer with a silver scarf around its neck adorns a white round table in the middle of the living room.

EMILY: The artificial tree from Target fooled everyone. It looks so real.

Emily helps Charlie hang ornaments from the Christmas tree.

EMILY: And we love that it has no mess and we can use it year after year.

Emily adjusts textured pillows on the sofa, then places checkered blankets on the backs of chairs.

ON SCREEN TEXT: 3. MAKE SUBTLE UPDATES WITH THRESHOLD TEXTILES

EMILY: Not everything needs to scream "holiday." Target's threshold collection has classic, affordable pieces that will add a lot of warmth to your home. A trick of mine is, when in doubt, just add greenery and twinkle lights.

Emily places greenery with lights along the fireplace. Lighted shrubs sit on a wooden table next to a family photo.

ON SCREEN TEXT: 4. GREENERY & LIGHTS CREATE WARMTH & GLOW

EMILY: I'm obsessed with these battery-operated LED string lights that last all season and make the room sparkle without any hassle or cords. Repeating the same elements over and over makes your holiday d├ęcor look really cohesive.

Another corner of the living room features a greenish chair situated next to a blue desk with a lamp and silver bear statue on it. A map overlooks the desk.

ON SCREEN TEXT: 5. REPETITION HELPS CREATE A THEME

EMILY: At the same time, it makes it really easy to buy and arrange. I went with trees and animals, and I styled each vignette with those pieces. When you walk into the room, it feels like the holidays for sure, and yet it's really calm and un-chaotic. It's sophisticated without being stuffy, and it's festive without being too fancy.

Elliot hugs Emily at the Christmas tree, who twirls her around with a smile.

EMILY: I think it's safe to say that we're all pretty into it.

Emily talks to Charlie indistinctly in his room while Elliot crawls around.

EMILY: Happy holidays from the Hendersons.
