If you’re like me and discovered that you are behind in the Holiday decorating and are starting to think “why bother for only a couple of weeks?”
Think about Winter decorating instead. This way you can leave the decorations up way past Christmas without looking like you were too busy to take them down.
Change up that traditional Xmas tree with the colored lights and ornaments to a Xmas tree or topiary with white lights and branches of artificial berries or sprigs of holly. Wood branches from the yard can be placed in the tree along with additional large pine cones hung from the branches instead of the ornaments. The tree then becomes decorative way past the traditional holiday season.
Forget about the Santa and Reindeer motif. Work with snowmen and snowflakes instead. Those can stay until the first thaw. Silver and shining is the thing this year. Blue and icy works well, too.
Remember we want to cherish the holidays not dread the hassle. Decorating for the entire winter season can help eliminate those January/February winter blahs too! And because I am so late the only photo I can take credit for is the snowman!!
Peace and Blessing to you all. See you in the New Year to help you overcome the winter blahs with some color excitement.
