Ring in The Holidays with Easy Decorating Tips

With the holiday season fast approaching, it may be time to start decorating your home. The key is to select pieces that are appropriate for all the occasions you’ll be celebrating. Find items that feel seasonal and festive without letting one holiday outshine the other. These simple ideas will help you easily make the transition from fall all the way through the holidays.

Silver and gold
Need a color scheme that’s impressively festive but not red and green so it won’t feel out of place on thanksgiving? You can’t go wrong with silver and gold! These colors are neutral so nothing will feel out of place on thanksgiving, but your house will still look special and wonder-filled all season long.

Pine cones
Head to your backyard to search for pine cones and acorns to fill vases or a dome cake stand for a unique and dramatic centerpiece for thanksgiving dinner. Spray paint the cones or dip them in glitter for decor that lasts through new year.

Candles make every holiday celebration feel more festive. Customize plain pillar candles with colorful ribbon trims wrapped around their bases. Get the kids in on the fun by painting recycled jars to create fun tea light holders to place throughout your home.

Add greenery for color
Strategically placed greenery adds warmth & texture to nearly any spot in the home. Drape greenery over a cabinet to draw the eye up, or you can keep the focus on a tablescape by using a similar garland.

Display new & old photographs
The holidays are traditionally times for friends and family to gather, which makes it the perfect opportunity to display photos often relegated to an album or your phone. Display fun photos frames, or use clothespins and twine for a little whimsy.

Lanterns are such an easy and beautiful way to add coziness to any space during the holidays because they add just the right amount of ambiance. Keep them simple or spice them up with leaves, pine cones and gourds for fall, then switch to greenery, red berries, and ribbon for winter.
