Layering is the key
Whether it’s your fashion trend or decor ideas, layering is the key to everything. You can play with different objects to create the layering effect. While doing so, keep in mind that you should use different sized objects so that the idea is properly executed. For instance, you can start by hanging a paper crafted snowflake to your ceiling, then for the table, you can use long candles and candle holders. Like this, you will give the onlooker enough material to look at.
Stock up candies
If you are entertaining your friends and family this festive season, then let me remind you to stock up candies. Aside from filling candies only in the stockings, you can do a lot more with these candies. Fill colorful candies in a glass bowl and place it on the dinner table so everyone can pop in some candies while chit chatting. So, when you order cake online for Christmas eve, dont forget to order a handful candies to excite the kids.
Focus on the candles and lights
Another amazing idea to decorate your house with a holiday vibe is by keeping the focus on candles and lights instead of garlands. Sure, garlands are great and all, but take a break from putting them everywhere. Fill your mantle with different sized candles in subtle colours. Also, fairy lights are your go-to decoration idea for every festival. You can put some light at the back of your bed, fill in light in a jar to make an amazing centerpiece. Admit it, crafting decoration at home is a fun holiday activity of its own.
Pick the nude colour palette
Now, before you judge me, I know it very well that red and green are the typical colour of the christmas festival. But just because that’s the colour palette world has been using, doesn’t mean that you too have to stick with it. You can go for a softer selection of colours that will make your place look ‘oh so wow’. You have more options like settling in for a nude colour palette as it fills in your home with warmth. The colour of the season are creams, pinks and oranges for a fun, refreshing yet classic makeover to your place.
Focus on the entrance
The entrance of your house is the most important area to focus on while upgrading your decor. So, don’t make the mistake to leave it as it is. Make it playful by hanging garlands, flower wreath, lights, a cute welcome mat etc. you can even hang a playful mailbox, you know, for Santa to drop in gifts and all.
These are a few decoration hauls to prepare your home for the holiday season.
Just keep in mind that you don’t need to incorporate all the ideas, keep whatever floats your boat.
