Are most of your holiday decorations hand-me-downs from Mom’s attic or impulse buys from after-Christmas sales? Are they beginning to look date or worn? Your home deserves better this year!
Whether you love decorating for the holidays or not, Christmas is a no-brainer. At minimum you need a tree to stash presents beneath and maybe a festive string of lights around the the front door. But the best part about decorating this time of year is that there is no maximum. You can go all out, and why not? It’s a spirited season!
We love traditions come Christmas, but there’s a difference between sentimental or nostalgic and just plain old. It’s time to shake the dust off your holiday style and make this Christmas your best yet!
But before you start tossing and shopping, consider these do’s and don’ts:
Do: Invest a bit of time researching ideas and discovering your own holiday style, then deck your halls to suit it!
Don’t: Get rid of anything that has special meaning, was handmade by your kid or a beloved relative or that will break your mother’s heart. Even if you don’t live it now, you might be happy you have it later.
Do: Embrace a vintage vibe. It doesn’t get more classic than Christmas, so let the sweet nostalgia of the season fill your home. The best part? Traditional red and green — even cheery antique-style pieces — will never go out of style. Try the Frosted Snowman Warmer for a family heirloom level accent that sparkles with holiday spirit.
Don’t: Be afraid to keep it neutral. If your typical style is muted or monotoned, don’t assume Christmas requires an explosion of red and green — you probably won’t like it! Instead, try snow-white accents or silver and gold metallics. For added warmth, use burlap or fur trimmings. And try the Champagne Warmer for a simple-yet-striking piece that will carry your decor all the way through New Year’s Day.
Do: Let your kids help. No, they won’t hang ornaments in the most balanced, beautiful way and yes, your house will probably be covered in glitter. But there’s nothing more magical for a child than decorating the Christmas tree or seeing so many colorful lights twinkle and shine. Try the Letters for Santa Warmer and fill their hopeful hearts with even more glee.
Don’t: Forget to keep it fun! If you’re worried about making your home feel too cheesy, too bright, too gaudy or too cluttered — just don’t! Channel the spirit of Clark Griswold and hang as many lights as your house can hold. Add holiday accents to every single room in the house, even down to the hand towels in the bathroom. And if ever there was a time to get all 142 snowmen from your collection, it’s now. In fact, go all in and add one more: the Frosty Glow Warmer (he’s the cheeriest guy around!).
Choose to really enjoy this merriest of seasons, deck your halls like never before — and make your family smile all December long! Happy Holidays!
