Now that it's been December for a few days, we can break out the holiday decor without feeling like we're jumping the gun! If you are wanting to mix it up a bit this year, here are some holiday decorating ideas for your home!
Start with the Dining Table
Dress up the big dining table with a festive centerpiece and a evergreen garland table runner. Keep your table set throughout the season to accommodate any last-minute dinner guests!
Decorate with Wrapped Gifts
Use sweetly-wrapped gifts as decoration around your house! They look especially cute stacked on stairs or framing a fireplace. For a unique look, wrap the presents in some fancy wallpaper!
Upside Down Tree
A quirky idea for this year’s decor is the upside down tree! Can you believe it? First made popular in Europe, the upside down tree is actually quite practical. No more kids pulling off ornaments or cats climbing up the tree!
If you are tired of the same old ornaments every year, mix it up and use cherished family photos in mini frames as tree decor. It is a quick and easy DIY and a great conversation starter.
Black & White
A black and white themed decor scheme is sophisticated and gives the appearance of organization. Throw in a few gold accents for good measure.
Wrap Gifts with Fresh Greens
Instead of the typical bow decorations, top your gifts with natural, found materials such as leaves or pinecones. Not only does this give your pocketbook a break but it adds a fun rustic twist on the traditional wrappings.
