Holiday Decorating Fun

Holiday decorating is a highlight of the season. Finding a great tree…real or artificial,
and decorating it is one of the first signs the season is here. Decorating your home for
the holidays should be a fun activity that sparks joy and excitement. From the inside,
outward there are unlimited ways to have your home reflect your sense of style and
enthusiasm for Christmastime.

If the thought of decorating your home for the holidays feels like a chore, you might
need some ideas to help make decorating fun! Try these out and see first-hand how
much fun decorating for the holidays can be.

Lights make the holiday merry and bright– Lights are a fun and affordable way to
give your décor some added glitz. Add battery operated lights to your garlands and
wreaths to help them sparkle. Add lights to your porch, on your bushes, and anywhere
you could use a bright boost of color and twinkle.

Living trees create décor and a legacy– If you own your home, consider buying a
living tree each year. Have fun with the family planting the tree and decorating it through
the years. Before long you’ll have mature trees in your yard that truly represent
Christmases past.
DIY Christmas décor– Everyone loves homemade décor. Parents are thrilled when
their young children come home with Christmas crafts from school that are proudly
displayed on the fridge. Use the same enthusiasm to create homemade crafts by family
members of all ages. Host a Christmas craft-making party complete with cocoa and
holiday tunes. Display the crafts proudly on the tree, or wherever they look best.

Did you know? One of the easiest ways to make holiday decorating fun is to take
special care when putting décor away at the end of the season. Securing décor in easy
to use containers and making sure décor is organized and easy to access will save time
and energy next year.

If the idea of decorating feels like a burden you can always delegate. Allow your
children to display their favorite décor or hire a professional to come in and glam your
home. You don’t have to decorate if it doesn’t sound fun, there are plenty of ways to
express your spirit without causing stress. Find your groove and make decorating fun
and easy so you can spend the rest of the season enjoying the beauty.
