There’s no place like the warmth and comfort of your own home during the holiday season. At ABC Blind & Drapery we want to help you add the perfect decorative touches, big and small, to your home to get the entire family in the holiday spirit. Below are our favorite ways to deck the halls this holiday season.
Pop of Red
Red is the color for the season. When you put a shade of red in any room, it’s magically transformed for the holidays. You can add beautiful red throw pillows to your couch, put out a festive red throw on your bed or place red hand towels in the bathroom. The holiday season doesn’t mean every room needs to be covered in seasonal prints, subtle hints placed throughout the house are a classic way to set the scene for the season.
Multiple Holiday Trees
The holiday tree is one of the most iconic ways to deck your halls. Why stop at one tree? If you have a large home with space for more, put up a few different themed trees. They can each have a fun personality of their own. Imagine your main tree decorated in all its glory, a tree decorated solely in one color, a tree decorated by the kids and/or a tree with special ornaments. Nothing is more festive than multiple Christmas trees!
The scent may not be a decoration but it helps set a wonderful holiday scene. Enjoy the scent of baked goodies without even turning on the oven. Or let the smell of pine make its way around your home, bringing back warm holiday memories. You can light candles or melt scented wax for this effect.
Give Love To The Kitchen
Even though kitchens are referred to as the “heart of the home,” there’s never a lot of attention put to decorating them. Put a wreath or lights in the kitchen window, hang up some decorative dish towels, or put festive treats in the cookie jar. It’ll add class and beauty to one of the most important rooms in your home.
Light It Up
The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior when it comes to decking the halls. Everyone dreads putting up holiday lights, but they’re so beautiful once the job is done. From the original C9 lights in your bushes to the blinking LED icicles along the front porch, every light brings a smile. You don’t have to go into Clark Griswold mode, unless you want to of course, just opt for the number of lights that spark joy for you.
There are so many different types of holiday wreaths that it’s impossible to pick the best. You can go for one wreath, or decorate with multiple. You can place them over your fireplace, on doors, and in windows. Choose one with ribbons and accessories, ornaments, rustic plaids, or the classic green design. Wreaths always add a pop of festive elegance to your decor.
The holiday season without mistletoe is criminal. Go with some fresh winter floral arrangements around your home to bring out the spirit. You can put a beautiful arrangement on your dining room table with Parrot Tulips, branches of pine and berries, or whatever other seasonal florals you can find. You can also put an evergreen in a pot next to the front door for a classic touch.
There’s nothing like receiving a Christmas card to make you feel loved. A way to boost this love is to hang these cards up and use them as decor. Put them in a place where everyone can see them. Or, if you don’t want to hang them up, make a little coffee table book with them by punching a hole through each, and binding them with twine. Share the love.
Start A Christmas Village
Your grandmother’s beautiful Christmas village started with one thing and grew to be a town. You can start your collection. Pick a piece that stands out to you and add to it each year. Loved ones can help you fill it up throughout the years and your children will enjoy watching it grow.
You probably have a small graveyard of ornaments that just didn’t make it on the tree this year. Instead of putting them away in a box, put them to use. You can place spare balls or bulks in clear decorative glasses or apothecary jars. Stack colorful ornaments in bowls for display. Mix them with pine cones and lights. If you want to make your window treatment, put garland around the top of your windowpane, and tie the extra ornaments to it with ribbon.
