Christmas trees, holiday music, cookies, and lights! It’s that time of year to start getting ready for Christmas. We all have the classic decorations for our house and yard, but why not switch it up and try something new? There are so many fun themes you can go for, that are sure to amaze your guests and neighbors.

Color Theme- Red and white is always classic, but even sticking to one solid colors, with small pops of other colors mixed in always looks fun and festive. Another option is doing certain areas in the home one color, so you get a variety of color throughout home.

Fun Themes- Whether your mantle is decorated with little trees, the bathroom is a snowman theme, or the kitchen has all of the Santa decorations, you pretty much can’t go wrong with doing fun themes throughout the house, and breaking them up by room keeps guests finding fun all over the house.

Christmas Tree Area- Over the last few years, it has been really fun to see people have very specific decoration or color themes for the Christmas tree. You can do a color theme for the ornaments, garland, and even the tree skirt and wrapping paper. Some of our favorite tree themes are: Candy theme with fun candy decorations, white with a pop of red, blue, or gold, or a fun vintage theme with classic Christmas colors with pops of plaid.

Garland, Garland, Garland- No matter the theme, garland always screams Christmas, plus it smells so good! You can put it on the mantle, on bathroom counters, and around the front door for outsiders to see and enjoy. You can add around decorations, or add some fun little ornaments to it to add an extra pop.

Front Yard/ Outside of House- You can carry out these specific decorations to the front porch and yard. A fun festive front porch is so welcoming during the holidays and with all of the outdoor Christmas decorations and lights on the market, there’s no excuse not to be festive. You can even call a local company that can hang your lights for you, if you don’t have the time or the decorating eye for it.
