The holiday season is known as the most wonderful time of the year, and one of the things that makes it so wonderful is all of the festive Christmas home decor.
Decorating your home is a fabulous way to get into the holiday spirit. Turn on some holiday tunes, light a Christmas-scented candle, and spend the afternoon transforming your home into a winter wonderland.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best Christmas home decor ideas to fill your house with holiday cheer!
Make the Mantel a Focal Point
The fireplace is a natural gathering spot during those frosty winter months, so why not make it one of the focal points of your Christmas home decor? In addition to the usual stockings, Christmas mantel decor such as a pair of Christmas gnomes or a bit of festive tassel and pom-pom garlands will give your living room a whimsical appearance.
For apartments or small homes that don’t have space for a tree, the fireplace is also a beautiful spot to display and open presents on Christmas morning.
Create a Themed Tree
One of the best ways to showcase your personal design style this Christmas is with a themed tree. Let your imagination wander - what would your perfect themed Christmas tree look like?
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Silver and gold - Beautiful metallic ornaments and plenty of tinsel
- White Christmas - White ornaments, snowflakes, snowmen and polar bears
- Coastal Christmas - Seashells, starfish, flamingos and mermaid ornaments
- Animal - Cat and dog ornaments, or wild animals like elephants, bears and lions
Set Your Table for Christmas Dinner
A gorgeous Christmas table runner is a quick and easy way to add a big “wow” factor to your dining room table. If you will be hosting guests, a Christmas charger plate, a folded napkin and a sprig of greenery is all you need to create a memorable and elegant place setting.
For a simple yet eye-catching centerpiece, place an evergreen wreath in the middle of the table, and fill the center with white pillar candles of varying heights. Still have extra space in the middle of the wreath? A few colorful metallic ornaments is the perfect finishing touch.
Display Holiday Cards
Sending handwritten cards is a bit of a lost art, which is why it feels all the more special to receive a note from a loved one during the holiday season. Many families display Christmas cards on the fridge, but a bit of twine and a few clothespins is a more festive and rustic option.
Keep It Cozy
The holiday season is all about gathering with friends and family, listening to nostalgic tunes, and sipping warm beverages by a crackling fire. It’s the ultimate cozy season, and your Christmas home decor should reflect that.
Fill Your Kitchen With Cheer
The kitchen is another area where families inevitably spend a large amount of time during the holidays, from decorating cookies and whipping up hot cocoa to preparing Christmas dinner.
Fill your kitchen with cheer with Christmas kitchen decor and accessories! A colorful kitchen towel with a cheeky quote or a beautiful holiday serving dish is all it takes to make your kitchen feel festive and inviting.
With these Christmas home decor ideas, your family will be ready to deck the halls and celebrate the season. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
