Every holiday season, our homes become centres for gatherings of laughter, warm hugs, and memories. Our guests look forward to eating, drinking, and dancing in the spirited atmospheres we create at our holiday parties and festivities.

Here are a few ways to decorate your home this holiday season to create a festive, welcoming atmosphere!

Create an Open Living Room

When decorating for the holidays, most families focus on the home’s public areas, like the living room. There is usually some rearranging to accommodate the Christmas tree and the piles of presents that are placed beneath it. As you move around furniture this season, try creating an open floor plan to give your guests plenty of room to mingle and your children space to play with their new toys on Christmas morning.

 Incorporate your furniture into the holiday décor, hanging garland and lights across the fireplace or placing a cozy blanket and festive pillows on the couch. Especially for parties, consider removing extra furniture like ottomans and chairs to ensure your guests have plenty of space. If you already have a well-accessorized room, you should consider putting some items away to make room for more seasonal decorations to keep the area from cluttering.

Highlight the Stairs

Take your decorating to new heights this holiday season by paying special attention to your banister. Wrapped in garland and accented in ribbon or glass ball ornaments, your staircase will wow your guests! For families that don’t have a fireplace mantle, the staircase railing is a great location to hang your stockings!

Pro Tip: If you’re looking for a place to display the holiday greeting cards you have received, try running a strand of ribbon down the length of your banister with a handful of festive clothespins and hang up new cards as they arrive in the mail.

Prioritize Cohesiveness

No matter how you decorate your home this season, the most important thing to remember is to create a cohesive design throughout. Whether you love traditional decorations or those with a modern flair, stick with one style and colour scheme to create an attractive display that flows from room to room!
