BOOMERS, HERE’S HOW TO SPRUCE UP YOUR HOLIDAY DESIGN

And Make It A Year To Remember

Whether you’re dreaming big or small this holiday, make it special.

Regardless of whether you have most of your Christmas decorating done, there is always a tweak here and there that will add some extra flavor and spice…a tree, mantel and more festive touches to your home.

I’ve heard this a lot this year from neighbors and friends, “ah I’m just not in the mood.”  Bah Humbug Scrooge.  But once they start it brings joy to them and their homes.  

Now I’m not talking about major swings of decorating, like the tree, garland along the stair railing, outdoor lighting.  I’m talking about the small, precious, and finishing touches that can add so much flavor to your home.  

So jump to it, go through your bins and boxes of decorations.  Bring out old favorites and create new memories with unique collections.  Then sit back and recall all the great holidays you’ve had over the years.

Rather than belabor the point, here are a few photos that may give you inspiration to ring in the season.  Embrace your inner decorator and make your home either the coziest or most elegant you can.  No matter your style make it yours and make it special, and spread holiday cheer wherever you can.  

Perhaps a selection of finials to make a stunning statement.
A simple poinsettia plant on a buffet.
A kitchen can look as festive as the rest of the house.
Candles, greenery and ribbon can add sparkle to any space.
Snow globes as a collection and grouped together. So many memories.
If you’re having guests, set up a coffee, tea and snack station. Won’t they feel special.
Don’t forget the guest bedroom if you’re hosting people for the holidays.
Make your entry or porch shine.
Mantles are especially fun to decorate.
Use pine cones, green or red apples and pomegranate to dazzle your mantle.
Adorn a chest or mirror with greenery or a simple wreath. Oh, how stylish.
Visit your local nursery and place a poinsettia tree in an old ice bucket surrounded by a few ornaments.
Mercury glass on a side board with greenery and red bows. Beyond chic.
And the finale, a collection of little houses set in a snow scene.

Here’s to Christmas 2021.
