With the holidays upon us, many of us are beginning to think about planning festive décor ideas for our homes. However, while some people love tradition, others find that opening boxes and unearthing the same pieces year after year can begin to feel a bit stale. If you’re feeling this way, it might be time to consider new and different ways to jazz up your holiday decorating for your homes in Ormond Beach. Whether you’re aiming for quirky, elegant, eye-catching, or sophisticated, there’s plenty of options to explore. Consider some of these tips to get started thinking of outside-the-box ways to spruce up your space with some holiday spirit.
Explore Untraditional Colors
While red and green are the most well-known colors associated with the Christmas season, it doesn’t mean it’s the only scheme you can use for your winter holiday décor! Break out of the box by trying something new. A sophisticated and elegant take might include a focus on metallics like silver and gold. This classy look will even transition well into celebrating New Year’s Eve later on! Introducing blue could be a great way to tie in some wintery décor – or, alternatively, could create a Floridian, beachy twist to a traditional holiday aesthetic. Or, if you’re feeling especially unique, why not try something else? You might decorate a tree all in your personal favorite color – like a bright pink or a vibrant purple.
Everything Old is New Again
Have you ever accidentally broken a treasured ornament or found another piece of holiday décor in disrepair after pulling it out from storage? You’re not alone – but there’s plenty of great ideas to repurpose old Christmas keepsakes into new, one-of-a-kind décor items. For example, why not create an ornament wreath? Simply gather up your old or broken ornaments and attach them to a wire or foam wreath form. Include tinsel, garlands, or other additions to fill in the empty spaces, and you’ll have a beautiful new wreath to add to your wall or door that helps to preserve your old treasures in a new way.
Incorporate Natural Materials
A fun change to your normal decorating might be to add a natural twist. Try utilizing different types of materials to decorate while celebrating the season. This might mean creating an interesting bouquet of evergreen branches and berries, which can add a lush, festive touch to your mantle, or opting for pieces created from rustic wood. Or, consider your tree. It might be a fun family activity to create garlands from popcorn, cranberries, or pinecones. Another great idea might be to create pomander balls from oranges and cloves or introduce cinnamon sticks to décor – which will not only look great on display, but are also easy ways to make your home smell wonderful.
Add a Unique Family Touch
One of the best parts of the holiday season is taking the time to slow down and appreciate your family and loved ones. What better way to highlight this feeling than to incorporate family into your décor? You might opt to hang treasured family photos as ornaments. Or, you can choose to create or decorate some customized Christmas stockings with unique fabrics or embroidery to reflect different family members with a personal touch. Adding decorative name tags to Christmas dinner place settings is yet another great idea to appreciate your crew.
