Dealing with holiday decorations can seem like a daunting task. But worry not—if you apply the tips below, sprucing up your home for the season can be a breeze. All it takes is a bit of organizing and planning and purposeful follow-through.
Here are some tips to help you begin:
Divide and Conquer
Decorating an entire house in a day can be overwhelming. But if you pare the task into smaller portions the work becomes more manageable. Focus on one room or area at a time and take breaks in between decorating days to prevent fatigue.
Give yourself ample lead time before the holiday season begins. Avoid scheduling your decorating on the days where you have to shop or prepare gifts. To find out the best pace to accomplish your goals, work backwards from your intended date of completion. Allow for adjustments on your timeline and allot rest days so you can breathe.
Decide on a Theme
Pick on the overall theme and determine how much you’re willing to spend for it. Each room should reflect your chosen theme. A good tip would be to select a specific color scheme and use that in the holiday decorations that go into each room.
Designate a Focal Point
Determine which room should get the most elaborate decorations and designate it as the focal point. If you designate the living room as the focal point of your home, place your favorite decorations and artificial Christmas tree there! After doing that, work your way outward and use decorative pieces that reflect the theme and color scheme you chose.
