Despite the fact that many of us have very little time and energy at the end of our day to actually decorate for Christmas, there are many easy things you can do that will add a ton of Christmas feel to your home!

By following these tips, you’ll be able to get a few compliments on your decorations and also enjoy the holiday.

1. Bows!

  • Tie bows wherever you can. Behind chairs, around the base of candles, the handles on your laundry baskets, and doorknobs.
  • Make sure your themes and color schemes go together. Red and green are obviously the most festive. Silver and gold are nice add-ons.
  • Also, with ribbons, buy ones that are easy to tie and un-tie. This will save you a lot of time as the years pass.
  • Make sure that you keep everything loose; that is, make sure that your bows and ribbons are not tied incredibly tight. You want your home to feel welcoming and relaxing.
  • This is an excellent article on how to make your own floral bows which should help you a lot.

2. Use holiday tableware throughout the month of December.

  • Dishes and any festive silverware will always help the decor.
  • Purchase a few place settings that are related to Christmas.

3. Keep the lights dim.

  • Eat dinner by candlelight. Not only will this put you in the Christmas mood, but it will also save your electricity bill!
  • Place candles in the bathrooms. This always adds a nice touch and guests always comment on them.

4. Wreaths!

  • Place wreaths on your front door to welcome guests.
  • Be sure to use real holly.
  • Artificial wreaths can be bought in large quantities (cheaper) and last a lot longer.

So try out a few of these and let us know how they work out for you! Let us know if you have any suggestions as well.

Happy Holidays!
