Sure, it’s easy to pull out the same decorations that you’ve used for 10+ years! It might even feel comfortable to see that same ornament or Santa sleigh. Maybe it’s time to mix it up a bit. Keep the nostalgic, old memories, but mix in some new decor to keep it fun!
Try a monochromatic theme for the tree or the mantel! Shades of cream and white is always an elegant choice! Try mixing in different textures or patterns!
Take the indoors out! Don’t shy away from using elements of design outside! Add large ornaments to your planters or hang them from trees. Incorporate fresh greens too, so you pull it all together.
Candles, candles, candles. You can never go wrong with adding candles to your holiday theme. It’s a great way to incorporate something new to your traditional decor. It doesn’t matter if you use votives, tapers or pillars, but vary the height. The glow will create a beautiful warmth in your home!
Whatever you do, make it enjoyable! There’s nothing worse than adding stress at this time of year. Sometimes simple is the best statement!
