Holiday Decor Tips & Ideas
The most festive time of the year is approaching. A beautiful holiday atmosphere is something we all enjoy, not to mention how much fun we have while decorating. Although we have some time left before Christmas and all the holidays, we can share some useful ideas, so when you start decorating, you know exactly what to do.
There is nothing more luxurious and beautiful than a well thought of Christmas decoration. To achieve that look, the best thing is to try to color-coordinate all your decorations. You can use two or three colors, and mix and match accordingly. For a traditional and warm holiday atmosphere, mixing red and gold, even black is the best option. It's esthetic and perfect for your adult home. If you like the newer trends, white, pastel pink, and rose gold or silver will look very cute. Your kids will love it too. You can try to choose according to your furniture, and go with warmer tones if your home is in brown, green, or beige color. And go with silver and cool colors if your home is black, gray, or white.
Go all out
When you look at your favorite window-shops or pictures of other homes decorated, one thing that is in common is probably the 'more is more' trend. You should go all out when decorating for Christmas. Big trees, big ornaments, bows, and many lights. You can even get the decorative wreaths and hang them in multiple places in the house. If you truly want to go all out, Christmas cups, socks, and sweaters that will be all around the house can fit the whole theme as well. Don't be afraid to use big, statements ornaments, even if you have a small tree, because it will look beautiful nonetheless.
In many countries, Christmas does not mean snow, cold weather, and sweaters. People there have a chance to celebrate Christmas on the beach, but that does not mean they can't have the perfect decor. One of the easiest pieces to get is a wreath, that you can make from the trees you like, or even easier, you can order some from a great Christmas shop online in Australia, and bring in the true festive spirit into your home, without visiting many different stores. Get Christmas lights and candles, and hang them on your porch and the trees outside of your house. For all those who are into DIY, use seashells as decor, and throw in some ornaments. And get a few sea stars if possible and create a beautiful centerpiece with some candles. And of course, don't forget to buy Santa hats, and deer antlers.
Bring in the holiday spirit
The main point of every festive atmosphere is the holiday spirit that you are going to bring in with not only decoration but with many other details. Decorate your kitchen with mugs that you can use for hot chocolate with marshmallows. Get some pinecones, paint them in white, and add them to the fruit bowl on your counter. Bake gingerbread cookies, and put them in a jar with a beautiful bow on top. Your home will smell of Christmas, and what is better than that. And as the final touch, listen to some jazzy, Christmas tunes, or even play old Christmas movies on your tv, which will add to the atmosphere a lot.
Crafting with your whole family
Crafting will not only save you some money, but it can be a great activity you do with your family. There are some easy ways you can turn everyday items into holiday decor. If you have some old lanterns, you can fill them with ornaments of two different colors, and place them in the hallway or on your front door. Make your whole house smell nice by creating stars from cinnamon sticks and hanging them on your tree, or somewhere in the kitchen. If you like the minimalistic style, you can take a few pine needle branches, and hang orange peel or dried orange slice on them. It's cute and has a festive spirit. Your kids can make 3D stars and snowflakes from paper, or popsicle sticks. You can even pile on some pillows and blankets on the floor, and create a cozy corner where you can all sit and enjoy.
With just a little creativity and imagination, you can have the perfect Christmas decor you always wanted. You can even make some of the ornaments yourself, or if you are not that crafty, stores have a multitude of decor you will love. Hopefully, we were able to give you some ideas for this year's holiday season.
