8 Trendy Tips To Make Your Home Festive This Holiday
‘Tis the season to be jolly! Make your Christmas merrier by making your whole house festive this holiday season. And for this reason, we are going to help you with your Christmas decorations. So sit tight because we’re listing 8 trendy tips to make your home festive this holiday.
1. Invest in Candles
One of the most common decorations during the holidays are candles. These candles (especially the scented ones) do not only serve as decorations because they bring out the Christmas scent and cozy feels inside the house.
They are best placed on side tables and can also be treated as a centerpiece for the dining table. Just remember to place them on a non-flammable area.
2. Make your Tree Classy
Amongst all the Christmas decorations that beautify the whole house, the Christmas tree is the highlight because of the different lights and ornaments hung on it. With the variety of decorative ornaments out there, we can’t help but try out different colors to match the Christmas theme that we have in mind.
And when we talk about making your tree look classy, silver and gold are the go-to’s. Although this Christmas tree theme is quite common nowadays, they can still easily compliment other decorations because of its elegant colors.
Whether you live or don’t live in a 4 season country, pine cones are great decorations for your Christmas tree. You can try adding some silver/white ornaments with it if you’re into that classic white Christmas, and choose a silver light to finish your Christmas tree decorations.
3. Make a Bar
Christmas season is mostly the time when families come together and celebrate the holiday. Since there will be a lot of gatherings, meals will be set for the visitors. So a good tip will be putting up a bar where you can put cookies, candies, and other appetizers to welcome the kiddie guests in the house. For adult guests, you can add wines and crackers. And if you don’t have a home bar, you can use a cart to carry snacks and place it in the living room or dining room.
4. Dress your Furniture
Start dressing up your sofa by changing its case; if your sofa has a throw pillow change its pillowcase. The pillowcase cover design can be a graphic image of Christmas or just any plain color that matches each other, like red and white or silver and gold. Add cloth with Christmas patterns on your shelves and dining table. You can also hang garlands on each side of the shelves. Try to add ornaments or fairy lights that go with the garland to make it extra fancy.
5. Decorate your Dining Set
One of the best things about Christmas gatherings is the food, and another way to make the food look even more festive is to do a makeover on your dining table. Set a color scheme for placemats, candles, and plates that you are going to use on your dining table that will match with your Christmas theme. You can also make the garland as your centerpiece for the table, but make sure it will not go overboard and take up too much space. For your dining chairs, you can put on seat covers with Christmas patterns, or just add a wreath behind the chair for a simpler look.
6. Christmas lights
Gold and silver give-off a classic and elegant style to our house, but you can still add some colors that compliment them, like the color blue. Wrap them all over your Christmas tree, on your garlands, and the corners of the room. Stick them on your door, on outdoor plants if you have one, to make your home bright.
7. Don’t Ignore Your Door
Like other parts of your house, the door can also be decorated. You can use branches, pine cones, wreaths, ribbons, or ornaments. Make an arch for the additional design of your main door and throw some tiny Christmas lights on it.
8. Reuse and Customize your Old Christmas Decorations
The good thing about Christmas decorations is that they can be reused, and can also be customized at the same time. For ornaments, you can paint it and add glitters to liven it up.
You can also add Christmas lights on garlands and hang them on the staircase or the balcony. If you don’t have a wreath, but you have an old garland, turn it into one. Get a metal wire and form it into a circle together with the garland, and secure it properly. To finish it off, you can add some ribbons and mistletoe.
It’s more fun decorating your home together with your family because you can bond over it. We hope we helped you by giving ideas and tips for your Christmas decorations this year.
