Fun and Festive Holiday Decorating Ideas for the Home



Decorating your home for the holidays is easy with a plan. Clear some space, decorate your home's exterior, and add tabletop arrangements for a new look.

For many homeowners, one of the best things about the holidays is decorating. Something about the season brings out the inner Clark Griswold in us all! But before you can deck the halls with boughs of holly (or anything else for that matter), it's important to have a plan. Here are a few simple tips to help you create the most festive house on the block.

Make Some Room

When it comes to holiday decorations, less is often more. There is really no need to completely overwhelm a space by adding boxes and boxes of figurines, scented candles, and other holiday ornaments. What you can do to make them stand out a bit more, however, is remove other knickknacks from the area. Don't worry...you may not need a dumpster rental. Simply relocate most non-holiday pieces to other, less visible areas of the home, or even store in the boxes your Christmas knick-knacks are stored in.

Decorate the Outdoors



As important as your holiday lighting scheme may be, it's important to add other elements to the outdoor environment. Placing wreaths between exterior windows and on the front door, of course, helps create symmetry and balance. You might also wrap bare garlands around all exterior railings. Last but not least, yard decorations and figurines, such as plastic Santas and reindeer, can add curb appeal to any residence.

Add Tabletop Arrangements


One of the easiest ways to create a festive centerpiece in any room is to gather groups of items on the tops of tables. Once again, you won't need to invest in dumpster rental; simply move any items presently on the table to another unoccupied tabletop or pack them away for safekeeping. What can you use to decorate? The beauty of tabletop arrangements is that just about anything can be used to create an eye-catching arrangement, including candles, flowers, baskets, bowls, and metallic picture frames (preferably gold or silver). Entire rooms can be decorated using tabletop arrangements to set the theme.
