Pretty parties with lots of NYE décor are coming soon, along with the New Year. These are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, but they all have one thing in common: they set the tone for a festive evening. It can be challenging to navigate the ocean of inspiration though. For this reason, we've assembled a guide from professionals in interior design to assist you with your New Year's Eve.
Merry Christmas Decorations Ideas
There are many original options to take into account when decking the halls. Check out the Christmas decoration ideas below if you need some motivation to get started. After much searching, we have uncovered over a hundred ideas that will undoubtedly bring the festive spirit into every room of your house, from the front porch to the powder room. When December arrived, we even asked a number of well-known interior designers for their personal decorating ideas. While some adhere to the conventional motifs and colour schemes, others adopt a completely different strategy. Curious? For the most creative decorating ideas, you'll have to scroll down. If you've got the time, we advise going all out and furnishing more than just the living room. If not, go for a minimalist look and add very few decor items.
We have a plan for you, no matter which option appeals to you the most. Additionally, we have provided links to stores where you can purchase wreaths, garlands, trees, and other decorations so that you can begin decorating your rooms as soon as you like. December is quickly approaching, so it's never too early. Each of our suggestions is just as classy and will undoubtedly make your house the most welcoming on the block. You can be sure that many of our top choices are also suitable for small spaces if you live in an apartment. Go ahead and start brainstorming; all of the ideas below are fairly simple to master, at least with a little perseverance.
1. Remain outside
While there is no set colour palette for Christmas, red and green usually work well to evoke the spirit of the season. Your place will be the most festive on the block whether you use these shades inside and outside the entire house. We think that the large red bows really bring this look together, so if you want to recreate it, start there.
2. Go Too Far
Speaking of bows, check out this gorgeous tree that is entirely covered in vibrant ribbons. Don't worry if you don't have enough ornaments to cover your tree. Alternatives exist. Just remember to add some twinkling lights to make them shine.
3. Assemble the Table
Don't hold back if you're hosting the Christmas feast this year. After all, a table decked out in red, berries, and holly works for only one day of the year.
4. Utilise Metallics for Play
Although the red and green colour scheme of Christmas is well-known for a variety of reasons, there is merit to choosing a metallic theme. Tones can be changed to increase sophistication without taking away from the holiday's whimsical and joyous atmosphere.
5. Make Festive Shapes in the Oven
Make Santa very proud of what you give him. Instead of traditional sugar cookies, try something a little fancier, like Tieghan Gerard's iced vanilla bean cookies from Half Baked Harvest. Check out the recipe here: You'll be surprised at how simple it is to prepare these treats.
6. Adorn Your Garland
Garlands are already very festive, but if you want to make it even more festive, add some lights, pinecones, and ornaments to the branches and let them sparkle.
7. Start a Fire
Nothing is cosier on Christmas Eve than a crackling fire, so if you want to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, arrange some firewood in front of the fireplace and leave it burning almost the entire evening. Just watch out that you get it outside before Santa sleighs down the chimney.
8. Personalise the Aroma
We won't hold it against you if this year you decide not to bake any cookies for Santa. Just make sure that the sweet aroma that permeates your house is both delectable and upbeat.
9. Set aside poinsettias
Poinsettias are in season from Thanksgiving to New Years, so if you want to add a pop of colour that feels appropriate for the holiday, you can't go wrong with these vibrant red flowers. Of course, any flowers work for Christmas.
10. Allow Snow to Fall
To enjoy a white Christmas, you don't have to reside in a cold climate. All you have to do is throw some fake snow wherever you could use a little holiday cheer.
11. Adorn the Dessert Station
Decorate the dessert station to give guests even more reason to love it if you're hosting a large Christmas feast this season! In order to match the wreath ribbon, Rachel Barrett scattered a few ornaments and woven some branches around her platters. We also adore the way she stacked the cake stands to create visual interest by varying their heights!
12. Put Some Tassels on
Elizabeth Pash adorned the tree with tiny stockings and tassels. Consider hanging doorknob tassels with relevant themes to spread joy throughout the home. Festive tassels on your desk, dresser, or doors can add a stylish yet affordable finishing touch.
