In two months’ time, the best time of the year will be here. Yes, we’re talking about Christmas. Spending quality time with your family, watching Christmas movies together and having delicious food around a heavenly decorated home. It’s just lovely. We are sure that you have started surfing the internet for unique decoration ideas so that your house stands out in the neighborhood. You can get a long list of DIY decors and whatnot but it can also create confusion. Here are some simple décor ideas to make your life easier.
- First Things First, a Christmas tree
We didn’t even have to mention this right? Christmas is incomplete without a Christmas tree. A well-decorated tree sets the mood for the festive season. The internet is filled with different ideas for its decoration. You only need a fast internet connection for smooth surfing. Windstream is one good option for you.

Decorating a Christmas tree can get a bit overwhelming, we get it. We say, decorate it as you like. If you want to go for a traditional tree, just pick up a few icicles and that’s it, you’re done. If you want the tree to be fancier and take the spotlight, you can use different fabrics, colorful icicles and a big bright star on the top. The key to remember is that the traditional tree will merge with the rest of the decoration and the fancy one will stand out. Choose your tree and go for it!
- This Year, Greens Are In
You will be looking at a lot of green this festive season. Apart from the usually used Christmas décor items such as holly berries, acorns, cedar, mistletoe, etc.; this year add some green plants as well. With all the ornaments being used for decorations, your green plants will set the right mood. They not only add color to the house but will also freshen up your space. Overall it will give your house a lively look. The neighborhood really comes alive during Christmas but adding plants will actually make it breathe.
- Lighting Is the Key
However you decorate your house for Christmas, don’t forget to add some lights. It totally depends on what kind of vibe you want from your space. If you are looking for a warm vibe, use soft golden lighting. This will make the other decorations prominent while giving the whole house a warm look in winter. You can also use colorful lights to give your space a funky festive look. The vibe will be happy and joyous, just like a carnival. Choose your lights now and start putting them on.
- The Christmas Table
You’ll be spending a lot of time around your dining table. While you’ll be focusing on getting new recipes from the internet and their taste, don’t forget how the table will look. Make sure it doesn’t miss out on the Christmassy look. Candles can give your table a perfect feel. Bring in some long and short candles and set them in the center line. Having scented candles will be a bonus. Another idea will be to use the leftover Christmas tree ornaments for your table. The cones and other silver décor items can be stacked in an empty vase. One thing you can do to add to the beauty of your table is to have flowers on it. The fresh feel of flowers will be the star of your table.
- Create that winter wonderland
Christmas comes in the extremely cold season so you need to take full advantage of it. There is always a chance of snowfall during the holidays. Whether snow falls or not, you can create a winter wonderland yourself. Creating it will be a fun family activity that will keep kids busy. Once created, the fun times won’t stop. All you need is some artificial snow or snow spray for some dramatic effects. You can also change the coverings of sofas and carpets to go with your theme. For decorative stuff, make sure you use some silvers to give it a proper winter look.
- Don’t forget your lawn
We all know one of the best parts of the Christmas holidays is roaming around the neighborhood looking at beautiful decorations. This year make sure people stop and say “WOW” when passes by your house. One thing that can stand out is a beautifully decorated lawn. If you have thought of going with a winter theme this year, your lawn can also complement that. White flowers, with ornaments on the stems and some fairy lights, will be a simple yet perfect look for your lawn. Your minimalist lawn dream for Christmas can now be a reality.
