The holiday season is the perfect excuse to redecorate your home and prepare for festive family gatherings and celebrations. When decorating for the season, you have endless options, from tasteful tinsel to ribbons of red, don’t be afraid to go all out in the name of the Christmas spirit!
Here are a few helpful decorating tips to turn your home into a cozy oasis this holiday season.
Be Cautious with Themed Décor
There are hundreds of themes to choose from when decorating for the winter season. From peppermint patterns to boughs of holly, it is easy to decorate with a distinct theme during the holidays. Before you line all your floating shelves with angel figurines or border your walls with snowflakes, keep in mind that themes can also get cheesy quickly. If you want to do a theme this holiday season, stick with something simple. For instance, fill a glass vase with pinecones and purchase several frosted pinecones to hang from your tree. A pinecone theme is simple, natural, and subtle. Your theme will be clear but not overwhelming!
Focus on Your Staircase
A staircase is a blank canvas when decorating for the holiday season. There are so many ways to utilize this common feature in your home:
- You can easily wrap tinsel or garland around the handrail and balusters on a staircase to make your home feel complete.
- Stick with a classic green garland or wrap some Christmas lights around the banisters for a warm touch.
- Hang oversized ornaments or stockings from the balusters for a unique twist on the standard holiday decor.
- Try wrapping Christmas lights around the staircase to give your home a soft glow all season long.
Utilize Your Entryway
Most of us have frequent visitors throughout the holiday season. Whether people drop off a plate of cookies or come in to give gifts, they’ll see your entranceway first. It is important to decorate your entranceway to give guests a great first impression. You can put down a cute holiday-themed welcome mat at the door for people to admire as they take off their boots. If you have a table in your entranceway, consider putting up a small tree with some festive ornaments for people to admire as they come in. Try putting up a real wreath if you can since the smell of pine is inviting, and it can spruce up a door with little effort.
