With ideas ranging from quick decoration ideas to larger home improvement projects, use our ideas below as inspiration to decorate your home for the holiday season!

Create a Grand Entrance

Your guests’ visit to your home begins at the front door. What better way to get your guests in the holiday spirit than decorating your front door and entryway! Whether you’re crafty and want to try a DIY wreath, or you purchase one when you purchase your Christmas tree, a festive entryway is guaranteed to put a smile on your friends and family’s faces.

Holiday Themed Table

The smallest details can make the biggest difference at your holiday table. Many memories that will last a lifetime will happen at the dinner table; take time to think and care about what mood your table will give off. Find a festive centerpiece, create handcrafted place cards, and add subtle seasonal touches like sprigs of holly for the ultimate holiday themed table.

Switch Out the Throw Pillows and Blankets

Chances are you and your loved ones will spend many hours making memories around the fire, so it’s important that everyone feels as comfortable as possible! Say goodbye to your summer colored throw pillows and your lightweight blankets and replace them with festive, warmer ones. Choose patterns like plaid and gingham in materials like knits and velvets to add nice pops of holiday feel into your home without much effort!

Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint

There’s no better way to have your home looking brand new before your guests visit than by applying a fresh coat of paint! Whether you tackle the whole house highly trafficked areas, or simply create an accent wall, paint is the easiest way to breathe a fresh, new life into your home.
