Holiday cheer is all around. From local carolers going door to door singing loud and merrily, to candles and lights decorating houses in your neighborhood. While there are many ways to bring the holiday spirit to your home, it’s never too late to include our 3 tips for entertaining for the holidays into your decor.
One of the most important décor objectives is to create a warm welcome for your family and friends when they enter your home. You can hang wreaths on your front door and windows, or wrap garland that has been intertwined with white, twinkling lights, around your front door. To truly capture the holiday spirit, place friendly holiday décor near your main entrance to make your guests feel like they are home with their first step inside.
The holidays mean something different to each family, so it’s important to make your home feel like the holidays, however you choose to celebrate. Your family might love the classic holiday atmosphere, while others are drawn to a more modern approach. To bring the holidays to your home, depending on your taste in décor, hang vintage or glittery ornaments on your tree or on shelves. Plaid, throw blankets and red pillows are perfect additions to your chairs and couches, as this not only brings the classic holiday feel to your space, but it also allows your guests to stay warm during the cold evenings.
Lastly, for those families hosting a holiday party, creating the perfect table setting can be one of the most important tasks you have. Sparkly gold and a rich green create an elegant feel, while red, brown and green brings the classic holiday cheer to your dining room. Decorate your table with a centerpiece that can act as the focal point, such as a vase of flowers or berries, and surround it with votive or pillar candles, in colors complementing your color scheme.
From personalized table settings, twinkling lights around your door, or red and green décor, there are many ways to still bring the holiday spirit to your home, and from our Jack Laurie Home Floor Designs family to you and yours, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!
