Overlapping Holidays: Decorations You Can Keep out from Halloween until Valentine’s Day

Share Button

I love decorating but I find that it can get stressful whenever holidays start to overlap with each other. Here are a few decorating tips I’ve found to be helpful to keep in mind during the holiday season.

Decorations You Can Keep Out:

  1. Seasonal decorations: These days, “season-less” decorations are pieces that avoid being strongly associated with any single holiday. For example, instead of adding decorations that heavily use images of Santa Claus, reindeers and elves during Christmas, you can simply choose items that are color red and white instead. This will carry you from Christmas to Valentine’s Day!
  2. Overly ornate decorations: Stay away from decorations that are over the top. It’ll be hard to coordinate pieces to go with them and they might even end up clashing with your existing decorations!

Some Decorating Tips:

  1. Keep your palette monochromatic or neutral: Choose a monochromatic or neutral color scheme. This can serve as a backdrop for bolder, brighter colors or lovely, intricate pieces.
  2. Add holiday decorations strategically: It’s best to strategize where you’ll be placing your holiday decorative pieces. Think of where they would make the most impact without clashing with each other. Remember, less is more!

Think classic rather than trendy to keep your holiday pieces from clashing and remember to use whatever feels right for you. If it makes you feel happy and festive, then go for it. Happy decorating!
