Bringing Cheer to Your Home for the Holidays

The holidays are fast approaching, which means the busiest time of the year for many is upon us. Decorating for the holidays is one of our favourite ways to prepare for the season, alleviating pressure later in the year and letting us enjoy the fruits of our labour. Add some festive holiday cheer to your home with some of our favourite tips:

Bring the winter in
It may seem counterintuitive in the cold months with the bare tree branches rustling in the wind, but there’s so much beauty in the winter months. Bring the outdoors in with boughs of evergreen, pinecones, and seasonal berries. These natural touches are perfect for creating wreaths, decorating tables and mantles, or for crafting.

Let there be light
The holidays just wouldn’t be the holidays without warm, soft, twinkling lights. Whether inside – on the tree, on banisters, or hung around doorframes – or outside wrapped around porch columns and trees, holiday lights bring automatic warmth and cheer to your home’s décor. Go subtle with a simple garland of white lights or go big with strands and strands of coloured lights – whatever suits your style!

Add your unique touch
Traditions are interesting things by their very nature. In our holiday traditions, we share much alike, but every family also has their own distinctive customs and ways to celebrate. Put your unique spin on things and bring your own flare to the holidays by adding elements to your décor that remind you of the most special parts of the holidays. Get creative with whatever sparks your inspiration – mementos, photos, candles, homemade crafts and more.
