The festivities of the holiday season are upon us. Time to prepare for family and friends celebrating this significant time of year. Whatever your taste, rustic, traditional, or modern, decking your home with Christmas decor that sets the mood will get you in the holiday spirit! There are many creative and joyful decorating ideas for spaces big and small. The best rule of thumb is to “replace not add” to your holiday décor theme.
Bring in the natural holiday tradition by using greenery, garlands, and wreaths to highlight spaces in your home.
- Envelope a doorway with garlands to create drama.
- Hang a wreath on doors to welcome guests. Wreaths on walls create unexpected artful moments.
- Swag your fireplace mantle or cupboard with greenery adorned with baubles, lights, ribbon, or ornaments.
- Wrap banisters and handrails with garlands creating sweeping holiday extravagance.
There are so many choices when it comes to trees. Whether you prefer live or “lifelike” trees, flocked or natural, choose a size appropriate for your space. Adorn your tree with ornaments, strings of lights, dried flowers, live plants and flowers, garlands, ribbons, or tasty treats to feast on while opening gifts. Color themes, story-telling themes, an all-lights tree can create family traditions and incredible memories. Here are a few themes to consider:
- One color
- Natural or woodland
Indoor and outdoor décor
The possibilities are endless creating the warmth and excitement of the holiday season. Create an inviting outdoor space to welcome friends and family by framing your door with garlands, accented with a matching wreath. Cascade your entryway, porch, or entire home with a cascade of lights warming the space. Set holiday-themed pillows on your outdoor furniture in covered, protected spaces. The same pillows can accent your indoor furniture as well.
Create holiday vignettes around your fireplace, mantles, or other opportunistic spaces in your home. Think indoor lights, holiday-scented candles, Christmas gnomes, poinsettias, and unique ornaments. Don’t forget your holiday table! Include a holiday-specific runner to set off your holiday dishes. Accent with beautiful candles and centerpieces to complete the look.
