Christmas Decoration Tips
If you haven’t started decorating for Christmas, you’d better get on it! It’s the weekend after Thanksgiving. Pull out the trees, Santa Clause’s, twinkly lights and anything else that screams Christmas to you! It’s time to get festive!
My mom always had Christmas decorations all over our house when I was a child. I remember specific ornaments that I would love to look at on the tree. Now that I’m a mom, I hope that the decorations at my house will make my little one get excited for the holidays. Hopefully it will feel a little bit magical to her.
I put up my snowmen, angel and Santa Woof’n’poofs on the back of my couch and in my window sills. I have a few trinkets that get placed around the house so nothing feels to empty. Adding little cheerful winter/Christmas decorations can make your home feel inviting and festive. The fireplace mantle is a good place to decorate, giving the room a pop of color.
You can have themed Christmas tree decorations. I put up an assortment of decorations. The bottom has unbreakable ornaments, because I have a toddler who has grabby hands, but I still wanted my tree to look complete. I think having wrapped presents under the tree helps it to look finished. I can’t have presents, once again, because of tiny and curious hands.
Get a couple or a few Christmasy or Wintery pillows, swapping them out with your everyday or accent pillows. Get some holiday table runners and place them on your tables and accent tables to bring all the decorations together. Little figurines can be placed on coffee tables, end tables, in the windows, or hanging off your door knobs. You can place colored ornaments or glittery pinecones in a glass bowl or jar and place it on the middle of a table. Sometimes just a simple centerpiece can feel elegant. You just need a few special holiday pieces to make your house Christmas ready.
