Tis the season! The holiday season of 2021 is bound to be exciting and jam packed. With things open and people feeling more festive and joyous compared to the previous year, it’s bound to be a busy, yet fun December.
With the holidays fast approaching comes the time to decorate and turn your space into a festive, cozy, and homey vibe, especially for all the parties and celebrations that are bound to occur. Now whether you’re someone who loves to go all out or prefers to keep it simple when it comes to decorations, we have some tips, trends, and ideas that will create the perfect holiday vibe.
So, get out the tree and untangle the lights, it’s time for some decorating! Are you ready?
Add in Some Plaid Pillows and Stockings
Plaid is a classic holiday pattern, which is why so many decorations include it. After all, it’s a nice yet subtle way to incorporate the holiday’s throughout your home. To make your space feel more cozy, warm, and festive, we recommend finding pillows and stockings in a plaid pattern that matches your colour scheme. Not only are these items inexpensive, but they are easy to add on your banister, chimney, and couch, creating a wonderful vibe. Plus it’s easy to store and put away when the holidays are done!
Bring out the Fraser Fir
Here comes the tree! If you and your family love to go out and cut down your own tree, or buy a real one, then this tip is especially for you. Full bodied trees are definitely on trend this year and there’s no better option than a Fraser Fir. Not only do they smell amazing, but they take up some space, making the tree a centerpiece for your family room.
While that may seem like a lot, it will actually save you time and money on having to worry about or set up other decorations to make your space more lively. Simply put up the tree, add on the ornaments, and let this holiday tradition be the main focus for your home.
Given that the holidays have a special meaning to many this year, nostalgia has become a huge theme. Rather than going out to buy new and modern decor pieces, tablecloths, and wrapping paper, turn to your old and favourite items that you have on hand. This will help save you money, all while keeping your home on trend. Plus, who doesn’t love reliving wonderful memories from Christmas past?
House Plants for Holiday Decor
Another fun trend we’re seeing is festive house plants. Of course you can visit your local greenhouse and pick up a poinsettia or two, however a great deal of people are adding ornaments, wreathes, ribbons, to their current plants. This is a fun and interesting way to add a little spirit into every aspect of your home!
Make the Lights Bigger and Brighter
It seems as though everyone is trying to make this holiday season bigger, brighter, and better. That means more lights please! While we’re not saying you have to turn your home into the Griswold’s (who doesn’t love Christmas Vacation?), an extra string of lights or two is definitely worth adding. Coming home on a dark, early December evening and seeing your home light up will definitely make it feel festive and cozy this year!
DIY Holiday Crafts
With nostalgic decor being trendy and bigger being better this year, holiday DIY decor is definitely having a moment. From felt Christmas lights to popsicle stick snowflakes and Candy Cane garland there are tons of easy, quick, and affordable DIY crafts that you can do alone or with the kids. We recommend visiting this website from House Beautiful, but you can also turn to YouTube or Google for a great deal of inspiration.
There’s no doubt about it, the holiday season is going to be bigger and better than ever this year! Whether you go all out or just add a few nostalgic touches, your home is sure to give off that cozy and festive vibe that we all know and love. So, have fun with the decor, add in some special, traditional touches of your own, and don’t be afraid to get a little crafty and make some memories with your loved ones while making your own.
