i know, i know…it’s not even thanksgiving yet, but in the spirit that dek & i are hosting thanksgiving lunch with our family again this year annnddd i’ll be hosting our annual girls christmas party, i wanted to sprinkle a few festive touches of décor around our home before we have company over the next few weeks. here are 5 easy, budget-friendly ways to incorporate festive touches of décor around your home:
1. customize your ornaments
if you already have a tree, great! if you don’t and you’re ready to purchase one, i would recommend a faux tree with built-in lights. then, it’s all about customizing your ornaments. i like to use wood slices or chalkboard surfaces to add personality to my tree. you could also easily hang things like this on doorknobs, the fridge door, kitchen cabinets, etc. the K is for Kaiser & P for @peanutinthecity…our pups 🙂
2. bows are your best friend
there’s something soooo holiday about those red velvet .99 cent bows, try adding them to a window sill planter, a lamp, your cabinets….go nuts with these guys.
3. look up: hang ornaments from the ceiling
ok, if you don’t have a hanging globe installation over your dining table like i do, you can try hanging different sized and shaped ornaments from light fixtures, doorways – you could do this with mistletoe, too.
4. use mini trees
i have a few of these from @athomestores, here is where you can browse them, and how cool that they are funky colors like blue & mint green! i put them on our entryway table and on top of our liquor cabinet.
5. create a simple, not-so-perfect tablescape
this gray table runner with silver sequins & these geometric christmas trees are what i had from last season, but any grouping of three objects will create a simple scene for any surface. you could do this with mason jars and twigs from outdoors, another idea could be succulents with ornaments.
