1. Lighting – More is less: If it is a festival, it should look and feel like a festival. Lighting is traditional and never goes out of fashion. From front porch to backyard cover everything with lights. Battery operated LED lights are great as they don’t require any extension cords. Star, reindeer and ball shaped lights will add the bling factors to home and create a festive feel. Don’t miss the interiors. Candles, lanterns, and fairy lights will be cherry on top. You can go for multi colored exterior lights or single tone lights depending on your theme or liking. Go big with lighting and stand out in your vicinity because how great your home looks. Don’t miss the pathways leading to your house. Garden lights, lanterns and battery operated light strings can be placed along the path. Tree path lights, Rattan light up figures, projection and laser lights, LED sphere and star shaped lights are in trend this year.

2. Christmas Wreath: Christmas décor is incomplete without wreath. You can make your own wreath around a planned theme and colors or buy ready-made wreath that comes with or without lights. You can even display strings with smaller wreaths in the living area as fillers. Selecting colors matching to your interior décor is a smart idea. Use of artificial flowers, ribbons, dried pine cones, fairy lights and ornaments can help create a welcoming wreath for front door. Wreaths can also be made around wintery themes by using white and silver colors and adding glittered trinkets.

Stars and snowflakes made out of paper and metal in white, silver, golden or any other color can be hung throughout the house. Windows, hallway, cornice are the areas that you won’t want to miss out while decorating home for Christmas. Stars and snowflakes look great with wintery themes and neutral colors.

4. Christmas Wall Décor: There are several ideas to decorate walls for Christmas. Christmas wallpapers can change the whole look of the place. Opt for lighter colors with touch of silver or golden. Easy peel off wallpapers is great option for festive décor. If you have not changed home décor for quite some time, Christmas is a great time to do so. Decorate walls with personal artwork, family photos, Christmas cards, and anything that makes you feel happy. 

Wall decals and stickers are also a great option if you don’t want to go through the hassle of getting new wallpapers. Inspiring messages, Christmas greetings, Christmas related images can be put on walls for extra festive décor.

5. Festive Table Décor: Christmas is a time when families come together and make memories around a dinner table. Table décor is significant and needs attention to detail. Bring out festive china and crystal glassware, silver candle stands and elegant centerpieces. Adding fresh flowers and scented candles will take the décor to a whole new level. Crystal candy jars, confetti and tiny baubles can be added to dining table décor. Bright red plain table cloth with white/silver crockery and silver cutlery set will bring cheerfulness to the dining area.

10. The Christmas Tree: Christmas tree is the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about Christmas tree. We are talking about in the last as it requires attention and love more than any other thing. It is the center of attention and it should look amazing and unique in every sense. It should be decorated in a way that it gives vibes of happiness, joy and love. Try to incorporate theme colors and décor style. If your theme is monochrome, use same theme for tree décor with an addition of glitter and lights. Hang glass ornaments, candy canes, figurines, pine cones, ribbon bows, metallic stars, crystal snowflakes, golden winged clay angels and anything you bought while vacationing. Draping fairy lights will give a dreamy look and festive finish to your tree.
