Decorating for the Holidays

There are so many ways to bring the spirit of the season into your home. December is a month that is steeped in tradition. It is a time of family and giving, no matter what holiday you celebrate.  Deck the halls, walls and tables with Christmas accents. Decorative touches will fill your home with the sights and smells of the season.

Take a look at this unique way to use cards from years past. This family has been cutting out Santa Claus from the cards that they received for over 40 years. Their amazing display has grown into this.

How do display the holiday cards that you receive? 

Here are some ideas…Take a wide ribbon and little different colored wooden clips (tiny clothes pins). Hang the ribbon in a doorway and as you receive cards, clip them along the ribbon. It looks great and everyone has commented on what a great and fun way it was to display our cards.

Ladder Christmas Card Display-Make pretty holiday cards part of your decor by displaying them on a painted ladder. Tuck the cards over or between bungee cords screwed in place in an X pattern. Add hooks to the sides to hang stockings or candy-filled cones.ladder

Jingle Bell Display-Big bells can be used for more than their good looks and sweet sound. Tip them over to create the perfect perch for your holiday cards.bells

Decorating the table for the Christmas dinner is a great way to make the day even more memorable. Your guests will be transformed into the holiday season mood immediately upon entering the dining room. Red, green, white, gold and silver are classic.christmas-decorations
