It’s hard to believe that the holidays are here, and a new year will be upon us before we know it. Now is the time to start thinking about decorating your home for the holiday season if you haven’t already. We at Remax at the Beach have come up with a few ways you can decorate your home for the holidays below.
One thing about decorating for the holidays is getting to trim the tree. Whether you use an artificial tree or a live one, the possibilities are endless in your home. If you’d like to decorate your tree in a coastal theme, we suggest going for beach colors such as whites and pastels and using a little burlap. If you’d like to get a new tree this year, flocked trees are all the rage now in many southern homes. Adding a cute burlap or gingham tree skirt will help add a little flair and comfort to your tree.
Another critical element to decorating your home for the holidays is hanging all the stockings. If you have a mantle in your home, hang those stockings with care. Command hooks are suitable for hanging them and not leaving holes in the mantle, or you can get some of the stocking hangers at the local store. If you don’t have a mantle, many people will often use command hooks or hang them from shelves they may have on their walls. No matter which one you have, decorating your mantle with some extra garland, ribbon, and lights will also help brighten up the room.
The last thing that can help make your home feel like it’s the holidays is by adding some new scents. If you’d like something fresh, add some fresh greenery from a local nursery, such as garlands or wreaths. You can also incorporate some more amazing scents by putting in a saucepan or pot and adding the following:
· Fresh Sliced Oranges
· Cinnamon Sticks
· Whole Cloves
· Vanilla Bean (optional)
· Pine Needles (optional)
· Fresh Rosemary (optional)
Let this mixture simmer on your stovetop and let the fresh scent flow throughout your home.
