The holiday season is in full swing and one of the things we love most about this time of year is decorating our homes. As a new homeowner you may be decorating your own space for the first time this year. To help get you ready for entertaining family and friends, we’ve put together a few tips.

Make A Statement With Your Front Door

When family and friends arrive to your home the first thing they see is the front door. A wreath is a lovely, elegant decoration that’s simple and festive. In fact, you can even make the wreath yourself. Our friends at Apartment Therapy give step by step instructions here.

Accent With Traditional Holiday Colors

Julia, founder of the popular blog Hooked on Houses, recently shared how she decorates her home for the holidays. We absolutely loved her use of red accents throughout her house. Choose one holiday color – red, green, silver or gold – and showcase it in every room for a cohesive appearance.

Put Treats Within Reach

Everyone knows the best part of the holiday season is all the great food! Display treats in edible arrangements to surprise and delight your guests.  We adore this presentation from Real Simple.

Create Decorations Together

The best part of a new home is creating memories in it together. This holiday season is the perfect time to start new traditions, like making your own ornaments. We were impressed by these DIY ornaments. Click here for instructions on recreating them for your home.

Happy decorating!
