Decorating for the holidays has just recently become of interest to me due to the fact that my almost six-year-old is completely enamored by everything Christmas. After attending our holiday Bunco party at my neighbor, Sharon’s, house, I was blown away by the creativity and care she put into every decoration. I knew I had to have her whip up some tips to share with the MDF readers.
Sharon, take it away!
DECK THE WALLS, TABLES, TREES, WINDOWS, DOORS, BEDROOMS, BATHROOMS, AND MORE! THAT IS MY MOTTO!! I just love decorating for Christmas, and it shows in every special touch in and around my home. If you are like me when you have a party, you want people talking about it for years to come and adding special decor is an easy way to make your party memorable. It can be intimidating knowing where to start, so I have put together some tips:
#1. Don’t expect do it all in one year! Decorating is expensive and when you have all the gifts and food to buy, the decorating often takes the back burner. When I first started, I added something new every year and those new additions were things I purchased after Christmas when it is all 50-70 % discounted. I travel to Ohio for Christmas and discovered the Front Gate outlet store along my route. I have found amazingly gorgeous garlands, wreaths, ornaments, candles, etc. sold with unbelievable discounts. You can also find beautiful and unusual things at specialty stores or large department stores. Think ahead, and put some money aside to use for decorating next year.
Thank you so much, Sharon, for providing these helpful tips. Good luck, everyone and Happy Holidays! We’d love to see your holiday decor in our comments!
