Unique Christmas Decor Ideas
It’s that most wonderful time of the year when the shimmer of snowflakes and the glistening of tinsel serve as inspiration to make everything sparkly and spectacular. Start thinking now about how to add that special holiday touch to your main living areas where you find yourself entertaining family and friends the most.
String It Along
A lovely strand of silver garland will instantly dress up multiple rooms of your home. String them along a mantel, along window ledges, around banisters or railings, or along a table runner with a few votive candles.
Illuminate Your Artwork
Often when we start to decorate for the holidays, we only think about adding accents to a room, but it can also be ideal to switch out everyday pieces with something special. For instance, swap out a framed print for one that features a holiday scene. Even better – choose one that lights up to bring that extra glow to your room.
Toss It Together
Transform your living spaces in a blink of an eye when you scatter several toss pillows along sofas and chairs. Choose several with holiday accents in a colorful palette that will accent your overall holiday décor. On the plus side – these cozy companions are inviting to guests and encourage them to make themselves comfortable.
Cooler weather offers up one of the best room accents – decorative throws. Not only are they a great way to add festive color and holiday charm, they are also handy to take away Mother Nature’s chill. Be sure to add a few so that no one will feel left out during TV time.
Wreaths are not just for your front door. They make a beautiful addition to a dining room. Hang a frosty one in the center of your dining room window and your holiday feast will take on a distinctly celebratory tone.
Let your dining room chairs get dressed for dinner with a set of dining room chair slipcovers. They look beautiful when you’re serving up supper and their constant presence add to the beauty of the holidays every day.
Set The Tabletop
Your dining room table offers up so many possibilities. Go classic with a gorgeous arrangement. Focus on ambiance by clustering a collection of candles both tall and short along a shimmering table runner. Be eclectic with a set of peaceful deer figurines or a pair of simple burlap tabletop trees to commemorate this year’s celebrations.
Bring on the Feast
You know it’s the holidays when you bring out that special set of dinnerware that signals to everyone that this occasion is not an every day one. Choose a set with sophisticated sparkling elements to make it a formal affair. Or choose a set with whimsical reindeer or a delicate winterberry pattern to keep things more casual.
