If you decorate for the holidays in your home, you’re probably familiar with this unavoidable fact: After the season is over, you have to pack away your festive décor.
It’s a bit of a letdown, to be honest. You want to enjoy your decorations for as long as you can, and putting them all back in the closet can smother the Christmas spirit. But fear not! We have some savvy decoration ideas to keep your winter home décor evergreen and help you avoid the storage boxes for a little while.
Choose a classic color palette
Red and green have a fairly strong association with Christmas. To design a look that lasts through New Year’s, opt for colors like white, silver and gold to represent winter splendor, and layer in splashes of red Christmas home décor. When the 25th has passed, feel free to remove the Santa-themed stuff and keep the rest. Versatile pieces are important for long-lasting winter decorations — for example, the Twinkle Warmer and In the Clouds Warmer are glamorously suitable for both December and January.
Florals are classic, no matter the season. Greenery, like eucalyptus, ferns and pine boughs make timeless additions to winter home décor. Wreaths add a touch of elegance, especially when you lose the red bow in favor of blue or silver accents. Fresh-cut flowers will complement any room, though their short shelf life makes artificial flowers more appealing — luckily, you can add florals that look and smell wonderful with Scentsy Fragrance Flowers.
Winter wonderland vibes
If your holiday décor is wholly centered on Kris Kringle, it won’t feel very relevant after the last present is unwrapped. Try adding a few decorations with motifs that relate to winter in general, like pinecones, frosty trees, reindeer or snowflakes. The Wildlife Mini Warmer covers several of those categories, and it’s the perfect décor for small spaces!
Keep it cozy
Even if your home looks like a winter wonderland, it doesn’t need to feel frigid. Blankets, throws, pillows and other textiles all contribute to a homey atmosphere, and they are practical décor for chilly nights. Add in a signature fragrance using Scentsy Fabric Spray to create a warm and cozy environment. The snow can pile up outside, and you can snuggle in a pile of comfy blankets.
