The festive season is a wonderful time of year. The air is crisp, the days are shorter, and there's a magical feeling in the air. If you're like us, you probably can't wait to start decorating your home for the festive season. After all, what's not to love about decking the halls with twinkling lights, cheerful decorations, and a festive tree?
If you're not sure where to start, don't worry. We've got you covered with our guide on how to decorate your home for the holidays. Keep reading to learn our top tips!
Pick a Theme
One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to pick a theme for your decorations. Will you go classic with traditional red and green? Or maybe you want something more monotone, like an all-white Christmas? Whatever you decide, stick to your chosen colour scheme with matching blankets, cushions, wall art and other accessories.
Add Twinkling Lights
Nothing says Christmas like twinkling lights. So string them up around your doorframe, along the bannister, around windows—wherever you want! Just be sure to use safe, low-voltage lights that are designed for indoor use. And if you're feeling extra festive, why not add some flickering candles to your light display? They'll cast a warm, inviting glow throughout your home.
Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly—and Other Greenery!
Holly, ivy, mistletoe—there are so many beautiful types of greenery that are perfect for decorating your home during the holidays. Drape them over doorways and windows, or use them to create a stunning centrepiece for your dining room table. Best of all? Most of these plants can be easily found in your local grocery store or florist so there's no need to go foraging through the forest looking for that perfect sprig of holly! (Unless, of course, you want to!)
Bring on the Snowflakes—and Other Winter Weather Decorations!
Whether it's snowflakes, icicles or frosted pinecones—there are plenty of ways to bring the beauty of winter into your home. Use them to create a winter wonderland scene in your living room, or dress up your Christmas tree with sparkling ornaments. You can even make some DIY decorations using things like PVA glue and glitter! Just search online for "snowflake crafts" or "icicle decorations" for some inspiration.
Finish off with a Bow (or Three!)
Once you've finished adding all your holiday decorations, it's time to put the finishing touches on your festive display. A few well-placed bows around wall print frames will add a touch of Christmas cheer to any room. For something really special, try using metallic ribbon in shades of gold or silver. And if you really want to impress your guests, hang wreaths adorned with ribbons from every door in your house!
There's nothing quite like coming home to a beautifully decorated house during the holidays. But if you're not sure where to start when it comes to holiday decorating, don't worry! Just follow our top tips, and you'll have everyone thinking you're a pro!
