Don’t you just love visiting a home where the owners take an enormous amount of time decorating for the holidays? Unfortunately, we all don’t have the time(or energy) it takes to create and display such an elaborate array of decorations. I swear, some of the homes I have visited must have had an army of Santa’s mythical elves to help them pull it off—but even some small touches here and there will add to the magic of this Christmas season to your home:
Home for the Holidays
Every year, the holiday season brings a new experience. Who doesn’t have fond memories of friends and family gathering around the table to celebrate the occasion? The clink of glassware and silver on the china, the warm glow of flickering candles and lively conversation cast an enchanting spell on all during this special season.
*Place miniature Christmas trees in unexpected places—such as guest rooms and bathrooms. Guests will be surprised and delighted with the extra touches you provide.
*Holiday scented candles such as Balsam and Cedar or Red Apple Wreath placed strategically throughout the home –especially in the bathrooms--will give the guests an aromatic experience sure to delight.
*Place a cookie sheet lined with foil. This is a quick and easy way to make your kitchen smell delightful! Sprinkle the foil with cinnamon. Place in your oven on low heat. Your kitchen will be filled with the cinnamon fragrance!
*Pick up a few pine bough branches and some garland: These items dress up your home in no time. Couple them with a few premade bows and you’re ready to start slinging pine needles everywhere. Here are a few ideas for using these evergreen decorations.
*Use garland to swag or wrap around staircase banisters: Add bows where the greenery meets the handrails, and you have no-fuss decorating in a flash.
*Remove everything from your fireplace mantel and place a long piece of garland on it, letting it drape down both sides of the fireplace: Don’t have a fireplace? This trick works for tops of bookcases or shelves, too! Wire in a few ornaments, attach cascading oversized bows to the draped edges, and reassemble your fireplace mantel decorations, moving the garland in and out of your décor. Place a few tall candlesticks on one side, and you have a lovely focal point to your room.
*Attach a long piece of garland about a foot over the top of a large mirror or painting hanging over your fireplace: Drape and attach the sides of the garland to surround the painting or mirror. Add a beautiful wreath at the top or an oversized bow to complete the picture
*Weave garland in an out of casual chandelier arms. Swag the garland if you like. Add a beaded garland to give it sparkle or purchase crystal chandelier pendants and hang them from the garland. The light sparkles through them and adds a hint of shabby chic to the room.
*Weave and wind lush strands of garland in and around the tiers of your buffet table before you set out the food: Tuck sprigs of berries, ornaments, fruits or vegetables, or other decorative items into the greenery, or just leave it alone. It’s beautiful, plain and simple.
*Place a few pine bough branches around a tall pillar candle on a table runner: You now have an instant centerpiece. You can also use pine boughs as a decorative swag over doorways or on the edges of bookshelves.
Everyone loves the holiday lights—somehow, everything just seems to sparkle and glisten just a little brighter! Along with the holiday décor, why not deck yourself out too?
