December has arrived; how do you decorate your new Delaware County home without spending a fortune; or looking like the tackiest home on the block? Here are some great and simple tips to ringing in the festive season this Holiday in your new Main Line home!
1. Simple = Sophisticated
When choosing your decorations, have a specific palette in mind. Go with the classic red and green, or white and blue; you can even combine three colors, like gold, black and green. Purchasing decorations in colors that complement each other will give your home a more pulled together, sophisticated look.
2. Start a Tradition
Traditions don’t need to be expensive! You can create your own decorations like popcorn strings, or paper mache balls using old wrapping paper. Other ideas are: making a homemade wreath – all you have to do is purchase a plain, green wreath, and decorate it with pine cones, paper snowflakes, whatever suits your fancy.
3. Make it Bright
White lights are the essential choice for any holiday, as they match any décor. And they don’t just belong on the tree – you can put lights on your railing, and if you’re feeling adventurous, a small strand on your dining table adds to the perfect centerpiece.
4. Holiday Collecting is Classy
Add on to a family’s collection of different decorations, or start a new one.
5. Winter by Candlelight
Nothing makes a room seem warmer and cozier than some strategically placed candles. Even if your room does not include a fireplace, the warmth of candlelight around the room can provide that same warm feeling. Don’t forget, scent is an excellent way to bring in the Holiday spirit; you can add cinnamon, pine or even sugar cookie candles; it’s all up to you!
