How to Decorate Your Home for the Holidays

The holiday season is always such a special time of year. One of the best holiday festivities is decorating your home. There is nothing like surrounding yourself with holiday cheer in anticipation for the big day. Here are some simple and elegant ways to decorate your home this winter.

Use warm toned white lights rather than colored lights. This gives a cleaner and more sophisticated glow to your home. If you would like to add some color to your decorations, try selecting a complimentary color scheme and firmly stick to it. Color can be used with your ornaments, table cloths, or even your wrapping paper for the presents under your tree.

Placing candles throughout your home will reenforce that warm and cozy feel. They can even be used to spread your favorite holiday scents around the house. Try using some festive candle holders for an extra special touch.

A wreath is a classic staple every year. They can be decorated with lights, ornaments, pinecone or flowers. The possibilities are endless.You can add all kinds of personal touches to make it the perfect holiday welcome for all of your guest. Just remember to keep your color scheme in mind.

A fun way to get the kids involved in the decorating process is to bring out the arts and crafts supplies. Having them decorate an ornament or stocking adds a great sentimental touch to your home. These can be kept and reused for years to keep their precious childhood memories alive.

A holiday centerpiece at your kitchen table is always a beautiful touch. Try incorporating some fresh flowers. If there are no flowers that quite match your color scheme, stick to white. If you have guests coming over you can even add some name cards for personalization.

Put your holiday cards on display. Holiday cards are sent out to be shared and admired, not thrown in a junk drawer until next year rolls around. You can arrange them on an end table, or even thread them with ribbon and hang them from your tree.

If you would like to try a permanent change to your home for the optimal holiday experience, you may want to invest in a fireplace. Fireplaces are extremely popular because of the warm and elegant sensation that they give your home. There is nothing like hosting a holiday dinner or opening presents with a warm fire glowing in the background.
