Decorating for the Holidays


Decorating for the holidays is a great way to welcome the season, and to bring warmth and cheer to your home. We’re partial to greenery, warm lighting, homemade touches and lots of sparkle. Here are our favourite staples for holiday decorating.

Wreaths


A wreath on the front door is a classic and welcoming sign of the holiday season. You can go traditional with evergreen, pinecones, red ribbon and berries. Or try a fun variation with citrus fruits, shiny bulbs, candy canes or whatever suits your style. Get creative and express yourself! It’ll be a happy welcome every time you come home, and your guests and neighbours will love it too.

Lighting


The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without bright twinkly lights. Inside or outside, from trees to your home’s exterior to banisters and door frames, everything looks better and more cheerful when accentuated with warm lighting. Do you like white lights or the coloured kind? We love them all! Candles are also a wonderful way to bring warmth and a beautiful glow to your home.

Homemade Touches


If you have children or enjoy crafting yourself, homemade decorations are a wonderful touch to any holiday décor. For some great projects, check out these upgraded plain glass ornaments, glitter candles, or snowflakes for your window.

Dinner Table Centerpiece


If you’re planning a holiday dinner with family and friends, consider making a festive centerpiece to brighten the table and spark conversation. Depending on how much space is available, greenery, flowers, fruit, berries, bulbs, candles or ribbon are good options to use to create a unique and creative piece.

Scents of the Season


Which scents does the holiday season evoke for you? Maybe it’s pine, spicy mulled cider, a fire burning, freshly baked sugar cookies, peppermint, potato latkes or pie. Let the aromas of the season into your home by stringing up garlands of greenery, brewing mulled cider on the stovetop, lighting some candles or baking up a storm.
