Holiday Decor Tips

Have you trimmed the tree and hung your stockings with care yet? We love getting our homes ready for the holidays here at The Well Appointed House, and we hope you do too! Here are some tips for decorating a well appointed home for the holidays…light up a fire, mix up some hot chocolate, and get started!

1. Start with the Front Door

Before decking the halls, you must deck the door! Since the outside of your home is viewed more often than the inside, it is nice to make sure it is looking festive for guests and people passing by. A gorgeous wreath on the door and garland on the railings are a great combination!
