The holiday season is the best time of the year to go all out with your Christmas decorations. By creating traditional Holiday themes in your home, you can add to the festive atmosphere so that you can have a merrier and more wonderful Christmas celebration.
From your living room, dining table, kitchen, stairway to your lawn – even your garage can do with some decorations during the Holidays.
Here are some wonderful Christmas decorating ideas to spruce up your home during the Holidays:
1. Dress up that tree.
Christmas will never be complete without a Christmas tree. Whether you have a six-foot, green pine tree or a two-feet winter land wonder, getting a tree is a must during the Holidays.
Get your kids to help in choosing the best tree to decorate your house. Choose the right height of tree so that your living room will not be overcrowded, and the tree should smell fresh, have a bright color and the needles should be strongly attached to the branches.
In decorating your Christmas tree, you can either choose a color scheme like red, green, silver or gold. Or, you can go crazy and have a tree with a mixture of all the holiday colors.
Put the lights on your tree first, followed by garlands, with the ornaments of your choice as the last ones to go on your tree.
Go ahead and start your merrymaking by filling your home with the scent of fresh pine needles and add color to the Holidays with a brightly-lit and gaily decorated Christmas tree.
2. Light up your home.
Place outdoor Christmas lights to decorate the outside of your home. Welcome your holiday guests with a brightly-lit entryway. Trees and shrubs, as well as your windows and doors, your lawn and porch can be decorated with outdoor Christmas lights.
You can either use a multi-colored light scheme, or the traditional yellow lights. There are also several light bulb designs to choose from.
Just make sure to ask the advice of an electrician if you plan to place hundreds of outdoor Christmas lights to decorate your home to have a safe setup.
To spice things up, you can also surround metals shaped like a reindeer, Santa Claus or a snowman with Christmas lights. Holiday inflatable decors should also be a hit to the children and are a great conversation piece.
3. Go with time-honored traditions.
Aside from Christmas trees, a wreath is another time-honored holiday décor that your home cannot be without. Mistletoes and Christmas socks hung by the fireplace are other great, traditional decors that you can use.
4. Spruce up your Christmas dinner table.
Christmas is never complete without a sumptuous family dinner. Make your family feasts even more special by decorating your dinner table with colorful Christmas decorations.
Tie gold or silver ribbons on scented candles and scatter them on other tables or cabinets surrounding the kitchen. If you do not already have one, create a centerpiece for your dinner table. Use a lot of poinsettias, or any bright colored flowers. There are also Christmas-themed mats and table cloths that you can use.
If you are on a tight budget, get all of the red, green and gold sheets and decors that you have out of the attic and use them to decorate your home. Just let your imagination run wild and you can surely come up with wonderful Christmas decorating ideas to brighten up the Holiday season.
