Christmas Decorating

Tis the season to be festive and for many this means decking the halls with endless lights and tons of baubles.  For others, a simple wreath on the door will do.  I love pouring over the pages of catalogs and magazines for holiday decorating tips and tricks, especially the budget friendly kind.  I even daydream about Martha Stewart, Candace Olson and the entire HGTV decorating staff making my place over for the holidays…and every other day of the year for that matter.  

The great thing is when it comes to holiday decorating there are no rules, so go ahead, be daring.  Try new things and use unconventional colors like brown and blue or purple and moss, put a bow on a stack of books and hang an extra ornament from your Charlie Brown tree.  Whatever you do don’t stress about it, have fun with it and make it all your own.   

Here are a few ways I like to make the season festive at my house.  This year is a year of color and celebration, just because I’m feeling extra festive.  There will usually be candles, something red, a little whimsy and plenty of sparkle. 

Happy Decorating….your way!
