Reasons to Decorate Indoors & Outdoors
You cannot get ready for Christmas without decorating your home. And when we say decorate your home, we don't mean just inside. In addition to decorating the entryway, dining room, living room, kitchen, kids' rooms, and other parts of your home, you need to make sure the outside of your home also gets its measure of holiday spirit.
Whether you have a small patio or balcony, or a large porch, this area shows your festive spirit to all who pass by. Christmas decorations for the front porch and yard set the tone for the entire home and let any guests know what to expect as they step inside.
Decorating the inside and outside of your house goes hand-in-hand. A holiday home filled with decorations indoors and outdoors is a great way to spread Christmas cheer. For a warm and welcoming ambiance, decorate your outside spaces so that they are as inviting as your inside ones with affordable Christmas decorations.
Best Christmas Decorations to Have
Getting your home ready for Christmas takes planning to ensure the result lives up to your vision. From snowmen to Santa to nativity scenes, there are a seemingly endless number of themes to choose from when decorating your house. Below are some must-have Christmas decorations to have.
Wreaths and Garlands
Wreaths and garlands are essential to any Christmas decorating plan. A beautiful wreath can dress up your front door, and on any interior door, you like. Place a wreath on the bathroom door to help guests easily find it. Wreaths can be made of all kinds of things, from evergreen, berries, or other materials.
Garlands can be draped along porch railings, around front doors, along mantles and banisters, almost anywhere in your home.
Ornaments are for more than just Christmas trees. Dress up garlands and wreaths with silver and pine cone ornaments. Or fill a large glass jar or vase with ornaments in colors that go with your chosen theme.
String lights are essential for decorating the inside and outside of your home. Just like garlands, you can use them throughout the house – along the mantel, along the porch railings, around the banister, and along with the range hood. Choose a tree wrap or net to make lighting up your trees easy. String lights can be used for decorating all year long, so this is a budget-friendly purchase you'll get a lot of use out of.
Christmas Greeters and Waddlers
Welcome your guests with a large Christmas character greeter such as Rudolph, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, or the Grinch. A fun greeter instantly puts your guests in the holiday spirit. Or maybe you'd prefer a dancing Rudolph waddler to liven up your holidays.
Santa Claus and His Reindeer
Every Christmas decorating plan should include at least one Santa. An important figure for children, they'll love seeing Santa and his eight reindeer on their lawn, porch, and home. Get the season started with a festive doormat featuring the jolly old elf himself.
The holidays have an aura and aroma all their own, and scented candles not only set the mood but also scent the air. They are a great way to bring the delicious smells of Christmas into your home. There are many different scented candles of all shapes and sizes, from votives to pillars that add a warm glow along with a delightful fragrance to your home.
Ribbons and Bows
Red is traditional, but green, white, blue, and purple are often used for Christmas decorations. They are also especially budget-friendly. Taking a thick velvet ribbon in the color of choice and tying it into a bow around items in your home is an easy and affordable way to add some festive flair to your home.
Nutcrackers resembling toy soldiers are traditional Christmas decorations. They are considered protectors of the home and good luck, according to German folklore. The traditional ones can still crack nuts, but most of the ones you can find today are purely decorative. In the late-17th century, nutcracker dolls were often given as Christmas gifts, and because of this, they became associated with the holiday. Their popularity in the U.S. rose after World War II when American soldiers brought them home and when the Nutcracker ballet became a holiday staple. These brightly colored Christmas decorations can liven up any home. Some are even large enough to be placed on the porch or in the front yard.
Christmas Plates, Serving Platters, and Napkins
Make your holiday table as festive as the rest of your home with Christmas plates, serving platters, and napkins. It's the little touches that make the holidays extra special.
A Christmas centerpiece is the focus of the holiday table, and an essential if you are the host of Christmas dinner. Your guests will appreciate the thought you put into creating or choosing the perfect centerpiece that completes the look of a festive table.
'Tis the reason for the season, so don't forget to include a nativity scene in your Christmas display. Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with a Nativity scene. You can find nativity of any size you like, and there are so many animals and accents to add to them over time to make yours unique.
