Thanksgiving is over and leftovers gone. Now, it’s time to break out the holiday décor! Decorating for the holidays should be a joy and something to look forward to, but with limited time and a large amount of options, that’s not always the case. Holiday decorating can be overwhelming and may have even become something you dread! Make your decorating merry and bright this season with top tips to decorate like the pros.
Plan Ahead. It’s easy to stress when thinking about how you want to decorate your home for the holidays but don’t. Set a decorating budget, then create a plan for where you want your decorations and what color palette you want to use. By starting with these simple steps, a clear plan and vision will come to light.
Bring Holiday Cheer to Every Room. Typically, people think living room, entryway and kitchen, but don’t forget the bedrooms and bathrooms. People coming to your home may not see your bedroom, but it’s a great way to bring cheer where you lay your head.
Dim the Lights. Bring instant ambiance to any room by adding plug dimmers to all your lights. Inexpensive to do but helps set the mood for the coziest time of year.
Wrap Your Gifts Early. Yes, that means get your holiday shopping done early as well. Don’t hide your gifts away; make them beautiful! Try to choose color coordinated wrapping paper, ribbons and bows. Not only will you add something beautiful to your home, but you will also be able to cross something off that to-do list.
