December 15, 2011 § Leave a comment
The holiday season is in the air. The smell of pine trees, snow and glistening lights is enough to put us on a whimsical holiday spirit. Seriously, it’s like being in a snow globe. Being in a snow globe aside, the holiday season means holiday parties! Whether you are attending or throwing a holiday party, let’s step out of the usual Red/Green Christmas bonanza and wow your guests with these unique decoration ideas.
1) The Minimalist
We love a white Christmas but this year, why not take it up a notch? This minimalist look will provide a different sense of serenity and holiday contentment. Use white linens, white napkins and throw in a touch of silver centerpieces or gold culinary to make the whole place “pop”. Don’t worry if it will look too bridal – just add several Christmas decoration around like doves, mistletoes and the lovely presents, your guests will know it is definitely Christmas time. If you want to go a little further, use some cotton and decorate around your centerpieces as snow! Now, isn’t that just chic and adorable?
2)The Log Cabin
Ahh.. eggnog by the fireplace in a cabin sounds like a romantic Christmas dream come true. Play that fantasy into your party with amazing decorations of logs, pinewood air freshener and even fake your own fireplace! Buy electrical fireplace from Westlake Ace Hardware, Walmart or Target, just to name a few. Use wooden plates and bowls to manifest that whole log cabin. If you want to stretch it even further, ask your guests to come in red flannel shirts. *wink*
3) The Vintage
Save money this year by going all vintage! Use mason jars as centerpieces, scour Goodwill for unusual pieces that will make your event different. Stack old tins and cans like a Christmas tree and decorate it with Christmas trimmings! Find a tree brunch and spray it with a frosty paint. Have your kids write their Christmas wish/prayers on a tag and hang them on the tree branch! This unique idea will leave your guests feeling warm and cozy.
4) Let’s Go Green
Aree you a green person? Not much of using fake trees or chopping pine trees? This Christmas, make your own Christmas tree! Use recycle paper and cut them in a triangle (hundreds of them depending how large you want your Christmas tree to be) and start tacking them on your wall (don’t forget to use wall-friendly tape! ) into a shape of a Christmas tree. You can even design your own Angel on top! Using a variety of recycle paper, cut them into little decorative paperasserie and place them all over your house. Use cardboard egg cartons as centerpieces and fill them with shiny pebbles in red and green. The ideas are endless!
5) The Classic
Okay, so we said to skip the red and green but really, how can we? They are Christmas colors! The rule of thumb is to not over do it. Emphasize on one color and use the latter as a splash. So if you like Red, use Red table runners, red linens and only a splash of green as a centerpieces. Always use a neutral color such as white or cream as base. As for the lighting? We say go all out! That’s what Christmas is for right? Besides revering Jesus’s birth, of course.
We hope you find our ideas enticing! We encourage you to try it and send your Christmas decoration pictures and will share it on our blog! 🙂
Have a happy holiday and good luck!
