Decorate for the Holidays the Easy Way

List: Posted: 11/28/11

The key to success with holiday decorations is to take a planned approach to buying or making your own decorations, as well as placing them out and storing them. Far from draining the fun out of decorating, an organized approach will allow you to make the most of your creativity, time and budget.

Holiday decorations that are thrown up at the last minute, then torn down a few days later aren’t much fun for anyone. Mark your calendar with holiday decorating dates for the entire year, so you know when to start and finish your decorating.

You can find suggested dates for shopping for, displaying and packing away holiday decorations online. Remember that shopping just prior to and immediately after each holiday season can net spectacular bargains on holiday decorations you can use next year.

Invest in plastic storage bins for each season to protect as well as organize your holiday decorations. Over time, you can store themed collections of decorations for each season or holiday in separate bins. This makes it incredibly easy to decorate primarily with snowmen and shades of blues and white one year for Christmas, then reindeer and traditional reds and greens another, as an example.

Always try to focus purchases of holiday decorations or the supplies you’ll use to make them yourself on a unified theme and colors. This is the best way to avoid owning hoards of mismatched holiday decorations you come to dread putting out year after year.  There will be treasured family holiday decorations that will always be used, but you can choose a central focus for the remainder of your holiday decorations to create an impressive atmosphere of festivity inside and outside your home.
