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!
2. Set the Table
Whether you’re having a dinner party or not, table decor is a fabulous way to introduce holiday cheer into your kitchen or dining room. This could be in the form of a centerpiece, bowl of colorful ornaments, or a garland table runner!
3. Pillows with Holiday Pizzaz
Trade in your usual couch throws for seasonal festive pillows! This will instantly add to the Christmassy feeling in the room, and you can pull them out again next year.
4. Trim the Tree in Different Colors!
A departure from the usual red and green colors on the tree is always a fabulous touch. Incorporate ornaments in a variety of colors for a unique tree!
We are loving owls this Christmas season! They are so cute and very wintery. We are currently coveting these adorable owl ornaments:
6. Fill the Home with Scents of the Season
Holiday decor doesn’t just stop at visible decorations…the holidays are filled with so many sentimental scents, and it is wonderful to fill your home with them. These holiday candles will bring out the Christmas spirit in everyone at your home this Christmas.
