Set decorator Justine Mercado is such a creative force at making the homes on The Young and the Restless merry and bright for the holiday season that her colleagues christened her as the “Christmas Queen.” Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until the week of Christmas to feast your eyes on the holiday décor while watching Y&R on CBS.

Ahead, a sneak peek of what’s to come this season and how Mercado and the team rose to this year’s design challenge. Spoiler alert: It doesn’t take a Newman-style takeover or a Chancellor fortune to reimagine these decorations in your own home.

In case you missed it, The Young and the Restless honored veteran actor Eric Braeden's milestone 40th anniversary on the television's #1 Daytime drama with three new tribute episodes celebrating his four decades in Genoa City.

But first, Y&R cast, crew, friends, and family came together to toast the beloved TV icon.

The lunch was held on one of CBS Television City's Y&R stages, which had been decorated with the Victor Newman artwork. And event emcee Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) kept guests laughing from the moment he introduced Braeden—who took his seat of honor to a rousing applause.
