Holiday Decorating can be overwhelming, especially when you're a busy mom. Here are a few tips to help make your holiday decorating merry, and stress-free.
Where to start? It's hard to decide sometimes, but just go with it! Put on a little holiday music, and get in the zone...
I like to start with knick-knacks. We all have em', we all love em'! Lay them all around in whatever fashion you'd like. That old Santa that grandma gave you years ago, or Remember, less is more. Here are a few photos of some favorites in our home...
Garland is essential to any holiday decor scheme! There's no right or wrong way to use garland. Drape it, bunch, hang it or twist it around anything you'd like! I like it the best draped on mirrors, mantles, wall sconces or windows and door frames.
Lights, lights, lights! My favorite aspect of decorating is putting up the lights. Everyone has their own color scheme they like best, but I prefer white or multicolored. I can never decide which one to put up, so I've been putting up both for many years now! My favorite place is to put the lights around door frames or windows. But sometimes I'll wrap some around a floor lamp, around the large wall mirror, or drape them sporadically around the house.
Extra: Tiny Holiday Village:
A tradition of ours has continued for at least 10 years now in our house. It began when I was younger; helping my dad decorate the house for Christmas. My brother's and sister, and I would create our own tiny holiday village. With light up houses, storefronts, foliage, and little people going about their business. I've carried on the tradition with my own family, and to this day we enjoy building it, as well as enjoying the spectacle for years to come!
