3 Great Holiday Decorating Ideas

Find out how you can make your home look festive in time for your Christmas Eve party by checking out the following tips.

Garlands, Garlands, Everywhere
It’s difficult to overdo it on that classic winter decoration, the garland of evergreen. Add some visual interest by weaving in pinecones, strips of thick ribbon, or bright seasonal berries. Whether hung over doorways, draped between shelves, or wrapped around a dining table centerpiece, there’s space for this fragrant favorite anywhere. Source: TraditionalHome

Create a Warm Welcome
Our favorite way to light up any season is a brilliant array of paper luminaries. Line them up along your front walkway, along your driveway, or scatter them on your porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display that’s so simple and affordable to pull off. You can buy premade luminaries in bulk online, or make your own using white paper bags, pebbles, and battery-powered LED candle lights. After gathering your supplies, place a handful of pebbles in the bottom of your paper bag so it is less likely to blow away or fall over. Using your fingers, clear a place for the LED light (turned on) to rest.  Wait until its dark out, and you have a glowing luminary to light up your drive. Source: SouthernLiving

Include Flowers
Add color and fragrance to your Christmas tree by trimming it with flowers. You can create a garland of dried flowers that you drape around your tree, or simply stick fresh cut flowers randomly throughout your Christmas tree’s ornaments. They’ll add a nice hint of fragrance, as well as unexpected colors and textures to your traditional ornaments and lights. Your local florist should be able to help you find the perfect variety for your color scheme and budget. They may even throw in a few extra water tubes if you tell them about your modern idea and how you plan to use the flowers. Just be aware that fresh flowers will likely only last a day or two, so consider adding them right before you throw a holiday party or on Christmas Eve. Source: Home.HowStuffWorks
