A key element in designing a wedding is incorporating little details that are meaningful to the bride and groom. Of course the color, the flowers and the venue are important, but it is the personal touches that truly make the event magical and memorable for the happy couple.
The same key element should be applied when decorating for the Holidays. This season is all about being with family, creating memories and celebrating love. All the same reasons we celebrate weddings, so why not personalize your Holiday décor?!
Here are a few decorating ideas to make your Holidays more magical and memorable:
1. Christmas Story Books
Intermingle beloved Christmas reads throughout the home among your traditional Holiday decor.
2. Christmas Quotes
Create a piece of artwork using a quote from your favorite Christmas movie or song.
3. The Garland of Christmas Past
Display old Christmas photos and childhood ornaments on fresh garland. This will be a great conversation piece at the annual Ugly Sweater Christmas party!
4. Count Down Christmas Wreath
Together with your children build your own Christmas calendar. This activity you can recreate every year so have fun and get creative.
5. The Giving Tree
Have your family and holiday guests write down what they are grateful for this past year on hang tags. Tie the tags onto an arrangement of branches and display the “Giving Tree” in a place where everyone will be reminded of their blessings.
I will be sharing and expanding more on these ideas on Studio 5 this Friday. If you live in Utah and interested, tune into channel 5 at 11:00 am.
