5 Simple Ways to Decorate this Holiday Season

Holidays can be hectic and decorating can often get pushed to the bottom of the list. So, if you are looking for ways to be festive and not be overwhelmed, here are 5 simple ways to decorate. 

Nature’s Table

Add simple elegance to your table by gathering elements from nature to dress up your table. Hearty pumpkins and gourds can be found at the grocery store and add a fun fall flair to your centerpiece. Glam it up a bit by painting them with metallic paint. Keep it extra simple with a few evergreen boughs over a simple tablecloth.

Go Small

Rather than choosing the tree that will just barely fit without putting a hole in your ceiling, select a small tree to adorn the room. With a smaller tree, there’s no need for a heavy duty tree stand so the options are wide open. A large planter or a simple wooden crate makes a great base. With a smaller tree, you’ll want to choose only your favorite ornaments or make all your ornaments in a similar theme. This could be a nice family project to come up with a theme and make the ornaments each year.

Dress Up Your Bed

For a super-quick décor update, swap out your regular sheets for a festive flannel pattern. The cozy addition will make your bedroom feel cheerful and cozy. Bonus: less time decorating and more time snuggling.

Branch Out

Look no further than your backyard for some beautiful and affordable décor. Branches can be used in many ways to bring a warm natural feel to your holiday décor. Add some lights and a few ornaments for a festive addition to any space. In extra small spaces, this could even replace a traditional tree. Use a horizontal branch to display homemade wreaths and ornaments. Or, grab this clever idea for an advent calendar. Hang paper envelopes with special surprises from a branch.

Minimal Mantels

A little mantel décor is a holiday must, but that doesn’t mean you need to go over the top. Keep it simple with evergreen branches or garland and a few simple stockings. Add your favorite scented candle or holiday decoration to help keep the greenery in place and you’re all done.
