5 Tips and Tricks for Decorating your Home for the Holidays
There is nothing more nostalgic than spending the holiday season in a cozy festive home. However, with the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s easy to find yourself rushing to put up the holiday décor. Follow these five simple tips and tricks for a warm and inviting holiday ambiance.
1.)Choose a Theme
The easiest way to cohesive holiday decor is to select a theme. By narrowing down a theme you’ll save money only purchasing (or making) items that fit within the theme. Below are some popular Christmas decor themes.
- Traditional Christmas
- Rustic Farmhouse
- Frosty Winter Wonderland
- Coastal Christmas
- Sports Themed Tree
2.) Decorate the Christmas Tree
Once you’ve decided on a theme begin with the Christmas Tree. String Christmas lights on your tree for an instant cozy upgrade. Once you’ve hung the lights move on to hanging the garland. There are endless color options and variety when it comes to garland. Lastly, adorn the tree with ornaments, candy, and tree topper.
3.) Give the Mantle a Makeover
Begin with hanging a holiday wreath above the mantle. Then string holiday lights and garland across the mantle. Be sure to include family photos and a couple of holiday candles for an inviting feel. Lastly, don’t forget to hang the stockings!
4.) Make It Personal
Add a personal touch to your décor by including photos of loved ones, sentimental items, and homemade decorations and ornaments. If you are feeling extra festive start a new tradition of crafting a new ornament each year.
5.) Add the Finishing Touches
When thinking about the holidays, people tend not only to think of the decorations but the smells, sounds, and taste that goes along with them. After your holiday décor is up, put together a holiday playlist, light some holiday candles, and put out a candy dish filled with tasty seasonal treats for a finishing holiday touch.
