Tips To Amp Up Your Christmas Decorations Game This Season
I don’t know about you, but whenever I see Christmas decorations, whether it’s at the mall, the road, or my neighbors’ houses, I really get giddy (in a good way)!
Holiday decor brings out the spirit of Christmas. This is why you want your home to look beautiful during the holidays–you also want to share the Christmas spirit with other people. So, just as you want to look dazzling in every party you’re going to this Christmas, your home should look as fabulous too, don’t you think? Now if you’re all set, let’s start going through these Christmas decorations tips that will really change everything!
1. Fireplace Christmas Decorations
One of the best ways to decorate your home is to make a holiday scene in your fireplace. For sure, your family and guests will love spending time near the fireplace, considering how cold it can get during winter time. This is why a fireplace Christmas decor is a great idea!
You can go for the traditional red and green but it’s 2016! Why not try a new color palette? Play with white, teal, silver, and add a few wooden pieces and accents to add a rustice vibe!
2. Tabletop Christmas Tree
Your living room is yet another place where your guests will spend a lot of time in (assuming you’re throwing Christmas parties this year) and so it’s necessary to add some festive charm to this area as well.
This can be done by placing a table top Christmas tree on a sideboard or as a centerpiece for your table. You can decorate the tree with beautiful origami, mini ornaments or ribbons, garlands, yuletide balls, or with pictures of your friends and family! Also, It will be best to match the theme of the tree with your Christmas table decor.
3. Christmas Decorations for Staircases
Beautifully decorated stairs and banisters are immediate attention-grabbers. Banisters can be decorated in a number of ways, but adding fresh greenery is always a great start. To further compliment your decorations, you can add large Christmas bulbs, small wreaths, pine cones and gorgeous ribbons (I love ribbons!).
4. Front Walk and Porch Christmas Decorations
You can give your guests a warm welcome by decorating the front door, front, walks and porches with different types of plants, decorative lights, pillows, and such. When we talk about decorative and holiday display lights, LED lights are considered the safest decorative lights for the holiday season. Stick to these to keep your Christmas safe and kid-friendly.
5. Outdoor Christmas Tree
Apart from placing decorative lights, decorate your front yard with a stunning, repurposed Christmas tree. There are people who prefer setting up a real Christmas tree out front, while some prefer sticking to structured trees made of wire wrapped in stunning lights–which I prefer for a modern look. Either way, having a Christmas tree in front of your house screams “We’re ready for Christmas!”
