With the holiday just around the corner, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word Christmas? Our guess is shopping! But wait, not for gifts. You were smart enough to stick to the wish list early on to ensure that they are in stock. The most important thing, however, is to find the right kind of Christmas decor that transforms your home to put everyone right into the holiday spirit.
Christmas decor can be all the traditional paraphernalia from the gold ornaments to the angel perched on the top of the tree, from green and red lighting running the length of the hall to the snowman at the doorstep. Alternatively, you can simply change tradition and find your own styles to make a Christmas themed holiday.
Here are a few creative ways to capture the spirit of the season with interesting Christmas decor ideas this year:
Use multiple layers
Go beyond the traditional candlesticks, oversized snowflakes, and garlands on the mantle. Buy paper bells that can be strung together going all the way up the banister. Layer and experiment with different color combinations instead of the red and green. Accessorize with different patterns for the gifts, decorations, and even your dresses for the evening. All the glitter and gold is trending this season, so add a little more finesse with customized gold banners and table accents.
Use a theme
Theme parties are something to rave about, before and after the holiday. On Christmas Eve, after a nice dinner, all you want to do is sit around with your loved ones and friends to watch a movie. Nothing beats the classic rerun of “It’s a wonderful life” among some of the best holiday spirit movies. Plan a holiday movie night with Christmas decor that transforms your living room into a theme screening gala.
Traditional ornaments look repetitive? Why not replace them for a variety of edible ornaments this festive season? Yes, you can buy edible decorations, including garland cranberries, garland popcorn, gum drops, ribbon candy, and even cookies to replace the traditional ornaments. However, ensure that you save enough for the Christmas decoration and not get carried away on a sugar rush by indulging in the creative edible ornaments.
