Holiday living room decorations
‘Tis the season to go all out on holiday decorations, which I’m sure you already have. Whether you prefer to decorate inside your home with festive Newport pillows, table decorations and wreaths, or you’re all about decorating outside with lights and inflatable snowmen, you’ll love getting into the holiday spirit. If you’re confused about where to start, I’ll help you out. Begin with rooms that would be seen the most by guests, such as your living room or kitchen. Here are some great living room decoration ideas for the holidays:
1. The very first decoration is the focal point of your holiday celebration, whether that’s a menorah for Hanukkah, a tree for Christmas, or simply some winter-inspired decorations. Let the children help you with this, so you have a chance to bond while getting into the spirit of the holidays.
2. Brighten up your couches with silk decorative pillows. Choose pillows that look cheerful and add to the warmth of a room. Around this time, a lot of people like to decorate with red and green for the holidays, or blue for a winter look.
3. Decorate one area of the living room or a table so you have a place to put all the gifts. There’s a lot of wrapping that looks beautiful, so setting the presents out is a decoration in itself. Plus, the sooner you’re done wrapping, the sooner you can put it all away in your wrapping paper organizer.
4. Keep glass jars or bowls filled with colorful objects like crystals or marbles, and arrange them around the living room. Add some candles to these to create a nice atmosphere when you light them in the evening.
5. Stockings and greeting cards on walls, shelves or hung from the mantle is a must for that picture postcard look. Add some festive garlands to the mantle or around your banisters for some extra color.
6. Electric window candles and strings lights hanging from various places look bright and cheerful.
7. Hang a pretty wreath on the front door and set out some poinsettias, holly or mistletoes for some festive holiday greenery.
