Tips to Remember
The following is a list of some unique ways to make the holiday a bit more magical in your home:
- Themes – Most importantly, you’ll want to choose a theme and a color scheme. If your Christmas tree consists of a variety of different colored ornaments, then any color is fair game! You can even decorate each room of your home with various colors. For instance, choose nice green and red napkins and dishes for your kitchen table. Add a bowl of peppermint and candy canes for an extra touch. If your tree has a specific color, say purple and gold for instance, try finding matching gift wrap, bows, and ribbons. This will give you a picture-perfect opportunity and make the colors stand out even more.
- Garland – You might not realize it, but simple strands of garland can go a long way. For those of you with long staircases, simply drape the garland or snake it round any way you see fit. This will add a bit of elegance to your staircase. At the bottom of each step (or every other step), consider adding candles – the electronic ones as to not have any mishaps! With these, your staircase will take on a life of its own.
- Lights – Although many people string Christmas lights outdoors, and we still recommend that you do, consider adding some inside this year. Drape them across the mantel or even in the windows of your home.
- Stockings – As the years go by, more and more unique stockings have been made. This year, try to match the stockings with your chosen color scheme or throw all the rules out the window and have each stocking represent the personality of the person.
As you can see, there are many ways to make your home a bit more festive. Consider some of these holiday tips!
