Family dinners, gift exchanges, and gathering with friends; all staples of the holiday season. Whether these gatherings take place in your home, or that of a loved one, it’s always special to be surrounded by décor that speaks to the holiday atmosphere. These are our tips to spruce up the holiday décor in your space. Once the scene is set, you’re ready to share a memorable holiday with your dearest companions.
Dress Up Your Table
The decorations on the table should be simple. Place your favourite holiday ornaments on napkins to dress up napkin adornments. Additionally, place ball ornaments inside a clear glass vase and place on a silver serving tray. Optional: sprinkle faux snow over the display and add matching ribbons. Be creative!
Decorate Every Nook & Cranny
An artfully arranged pine garland placed over the fireplace mantle always exudes the holiday spirit. Adorned by lights, ornaments, pinecones all add a special charm to any room with a fireplace. However, this isn’t just reserved for the living room! Allow the festive spirit to overflow into every part of your home, adding evergreen clippings, pine cones, and cozy hanging blankets into every forgotten corner.
Add a Little Flame
A roaring fire is an absolute must for holiday entertaining. Extra firewood can double as a décor piece: place in decorative baskets beside the fireplace. Even if you don’t have a fireplace in your home, fire logs give a sense of warmth and coziness, even when only on display. Additionally, the flickering flame of candlelight is an essential part of winter. Layer your lighting with candles to enhance the cozy atmosphere. Pair tealights alongside sophisticated table lamps. The natural glow of the flames will always set the mood.
These tips will give your home décor a warm and festive feel. However, beware that going outside will be much more difficult!
