3 Holiday Decorating Tips for the Season
Halloween is past us, we’ve set the clocks back, and there’s more of a chill in the air. It’s almost time to get in a festive mood and decorate for the holidays!
Decorating the inside of your home can be an enjoyable experience because you can do it on your own time without having to worry about being out in the rain, cold, or snow. And if you’re ready to invite guests back into your home after a 2020 in lockdown, welcome them into a festive atmosphere!
Onondaga Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing is sharing three tips to decorate the inside of your home like a pro this holiday season.
- Bring in Scents From the Outdoors
Pine cones and pieces of evergreens can give the interior the scent of the outdoors. Then add twigs and other natural elements to complete the look to match the aroma.
- Add Lights
Just like you do outside your home, add as many lights as possible to the inside. This can include displays on a mantle, garland around railings, or through centerpieces. You can also grab LED bulbs that don’t emit any heat and don’t consume as much energy as traditional Christmas bulbs.
- Stick With the Classics
Unless you want to buy new decorations every year or two, avoid trends. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck with that silver or black tree from a couple of years ago! Traditional never goes out of style when it comes to the holidays, especially if you give people a nostalgic feeling. Classic ornaments, big bows, and old photos allow people to have a feeling of warmth and welcome, which is what you want your home to exhibit.
