Bring Cheer to Every Room
When decorating for the holidays the typical spaces are living\family room, outside, entryway, kitchen, and even bathrooms but a lot of people seem to forget their bedroom. Yes, people coming to your home for the holidays won’t be seeing your bedroom, but you will, so by adding some garland that may be left over here and there around your room is a perfect elegant way to bring cheer where you lay your head.
Dim the Lights
This is the coziest time of the year so by adding plug in dimmers to all of your lights it will bring an instant ambiance to any room at a very inexpensive price. Bonus they are very easy to install and can be found at any local hardware store!
Wrap Your Gifts Early
Yes, that means getting your holiday shopping done early as well, which we all know isn’t always realistic. So even if you just have a couple gifts bought, don’t hide them away, make them beautiful! When it comes to wrapping try to choose a coordinated group of paper and bows that will match with your holiday décor. By doing this simple step you will take one last minute to-do off your list while adding something beautiful to your home that everyone can throughout the holiday season!
