We decorate five Christmas trees in our home every year. Three of the trees stand in three rooms of our children. They love having their very own special tree. The main tree we decorate with ornaments I have been collecting for years. The dining room tree has a glass ornaments. This weekend we go out and look for our trees.

We enjoy these unique double sided stand up pewter Christmas ornaments because you don't need to hang them on anything. They are thin, but have a flat base so you can rest them pretty much anywhere...

Home Decor Tips For Christmas -

 

1.While decorating a full house for Christmas, start with the indoor decorations first and then go for the outdoor decorations. Silver tinsel and colored paper bring a festive decoration to your home. For windows, go for fake snow it is very popular in the areas that don´t get any snow flake during Christmas. Use holly above all doors as it´s a Christmas tradition.

 

2.As you start decorating the halls and Christmas tree, do not forget one important home decor tip, that is on Christmas window decorations. The best thing about the decorated windows is that they add Christmas ambiance both inside and outside the house.

 

3.For a Christmas tree decorating party, plan a “secret friend” theme where everyone would be secret friend of the other. Tell each of your friends to get two ornaments, one for the host(you) and the other for the secret friend. You as host, will also be sharing an ornament with each guest. Ask everyone to decorate one of their offerings on the tree and exchange the other with another secret guest. By doing this, it is not only exciting but every guest will have two new ornaments for their tree.

 

4.Save on electricity and arrange candles on the dining table and dine by candlelight. Every meal will feel warm and special. If there are little children at home, take care of your children when candles are lit all around the house. Always have an adult next to children in the room.

 

5.For a Christmas party, Do not pool all circles of friends on the same day as it would be extremely difficult to handle. Divide your friend circles and plan two or three parties on one weekend.

 

6.Once you have planned the number of people attending party it would easier to polish and clean home, shop and plan food menu all in one day.

 

7.Plan a "Girls' Day Out" for Christmas shopping. Locate some interesting discount sales to shop and shop with friends so that it will not only be fun to shop but the work will also be done.

 

8.Plan a simple kitty parties to get friends together to help each other with the task.

 

9.Carefully plan a easy to make food theme and see to it you won't be tempted to keep adding things to the menu list.

 

10.Plan a party to benefit the needy. Ask your guests to get old blankets, toys, or socks. Collect things as admission to your party and give to the needy.

 

Preparing for Christmas doesn’t have to be an costly endeavor. While the easiest option would be to simply mismatch your holiday home decor and Christmas ornaments that have been collected throughout the years. Use these home decor tips and tricks to attractively decorate your home for Christmas.

We decorate to remember, watch, and re-live the splendor and excitement of Christmas time as children.

 

You would have to be a real Scrooge to want to deprive any child of experiencing the fanciful whimsey and glorious beauty to be seen in celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas.

 

We should all remember that to decorate is to share good will with others!

Thank you for your pewter flat base ornament suggestion. I really like pewter made products so i am thinking of ordering the other flat base ones as well to round off my collection for the holiday season and maybe even give them as gifts to my family and friends this Christmas. Thanks again...

I really like the idea of supporting American manufacturers. Even if it cost a little more, they hold or increase their value.
