Decorating for the Holidays!!
Decorating for the Holidays can be overwhelming. The problem usually is, “Where do I put everything?” Here’s a solution you might want to try, create vignettes. This will allow you to use more items!! Also, think outside the box!! Who says your Christmas decor has to be the traditional red and green? Why not use another color theme? I decided to use turquoise, chartreuse green, and white. And I love it!!
As you can see here, I grouped a few items together, allowing me to use more of my decor. Layering is key to good decorating!!
Here’s a grouping of deers and trees!!
I try to utilize all the space in my home, including the kitchen. The decor that hangs over the kitchen window was handmade. I merely brought items that worked well together. I also kept my color theme in mind.
Here’s an overview of my living room.
Close-up of the tree. You can see I used a lot of items, besides the conventional Christmas Tree balls. Walmart has an enormous selection priced right!!
I go one step further and make sure my wrapping paper co-ordinates with my color theme!! I know! I know!! A bit over the top here!!
I even had the Christmas stocking embroidered to color coordinate with my color theme! I also added an ornament with some greenery to embellished it (again layering).
Here I added the same ornament and greenery from the Christmas stocking and silver bow.
Here’s an overview of the dining room. I’m hoping next year to purchase a new dining room set since I sold my old one when I moved into this house. So, for now, this folding table and chairs will have to do!!
