November 2016: Decorating for Holidays November 15 2016, 0 Comments
As the holiday season approaches you can start filling your home with a more festive look by following these few tips and tricks from us here at Loose Petals!
1. Find creative ways to hang up all of the holiday cards that are sent to you by using clips or clothespins to string them along the staircase or tape them around the edge of a window sill to create a nice boarder and personal wall display!
2.Put a unique center piece in the middle of your kitchen island or use a creative bowl to put brightly colored ornaments to give your table a little extra sparkle! try mixing in elements you wouldn't expect like clementines or oranges and peppermint balls in addition to a variety of things.
3. If red and green aren't part of your decorating color scheme, lean on tones that complement your existing décor. Silver, gold, and bronze look right at home complementing any color pallet that is already in your home. Add a soft subtle hints of the Christmas colors by draping sprigs of evergreen garland embellished with berries and ornaments.
4. Speaking of garland, dont forget to decorate your fire place and mantle! Aside from hanging the stockings and putting out the cookies, use a festive candle arrangement garnished with flakes of snow and berries to give your home a well rounded look.
5. Make your own Advent calendar using lined envelopes and stick-on-numbers to transform a large bulletin board. Fill each envelope with treats the kids will love counting down the days to December 25.
