Holiday decorating tips from Harris Home
There’s no better way to embrace the spirit of joy, warmth, and togetherness than by adorning your home with festive decorations. At Harris Home, we believe that your home should be a reflection of your personality and style. That’s why we’re excited to share some creative and inspiring ways to decorate your home for the holiday season with a little help from our Interior Design team.
Start with a Welcoming Entryway.
As the saying goes, “first impressions matter.” Set the tone for your holiday decor by transforming your entryway. A festive wreath like this one on your front door, twinkling fairy lights, and a cheerful welcome mat will instantly make your home feel inviting and ready for the festivities.
Deck the Halls with Garlands.
The aroma of natural evergreen creates an instant feeling of the holidays. Drape the garland along staircases, mantels and doorways. You can usually purchase these from a local tree farm or farmer’s market.
How to care for live garlands and wreaths:
– Soak your live greenery overnight in a mixture of cold water and “Wilt Stop,” which can be purchased on Amazon.
– Continue to mist-spray your greenery with cold water every 2-3 days.
– Try to keep greenery away from direct heat sources.
– Add faux greenery stems in with your real so the green tones stay vibrant after the real greenery begins to fade.
Decorate the Christmas Tree.
No holiday decorating is complete without the centerpiece – the Christmas tree. Whether you prefer a real fir tree or an artificial one, decorating it is a cherished tradition. Coordinate your ornaments, tinsel, and tree topper to match your home’s color scheme for a cohesive look.
Create a Cozy Ambiance with Candles.
Candles can add warmth and a touch of elegance to any room. Place scented candles on your dining table, coffee tables, and around the fireplace. Need a last-minute gift idea? At Harris Home, we have our own signature scent that is available for purchase in-store.
