Festive Christmas Decorating Ideas: Have a Jingle Ball

in EXPERIENCES

By Megan Koester

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—and the most frantic. Between wrapping presents, baking, and entertaining, you hardly have time to think, let alone come up with your own Christmas decorating ideas. Don’t worry! The festive home decorations on this list will get you and your household into the holiday spirit.

Throw Pillows

Want to instantly transform the look of your couch? Just toss a couple of throw pillows on it—they’re easy, convenient, and inexpensive home decorations. Buying a set of pillows in a festive print is one of the simplest and cutest Christmas decorating ideas you could execute. Why make Christmas decorating ideas harder than they need to be?

Personalized Christmas Stockings

Want your Christmas decorating ideas to add a unique flair to your mantle? Get everyone in your family their very own personalized Christmas stocking. They’re instant family heirlooms and they’ll look effortlessly elegant above your fireplace.

Christmas Tree

Rejoice! The age of afternoons spent frustratedly detangling huge balls of Christmas lights are over. The tree of the future comes pre-lit—and the future is now! Today’s artificial trees don’t resemble their predecessors in the slightest. Rather, they take advantage of new technology like fiber optics to transform their branches into dazzling, never-ending light shows. Not only are they incredibly easy to set up (just plug in and go), but you can use them year after year, eliminating the hassle of cutting, buying, and hauling huge trees into your home evermore.

Tree Skirt

You can’t have a tree without a tree skirt—that would be like having Christmas without snow! Not only do tree skirts protect your floor, they also make whatever presents are placed on them look that much more special. Placing a simple, elegant and lush tree skirt below your Christmas tree will tie the whole package together, from the star on the top to the gifts at the bottom.

These customized Christmas stockings from Harry & David can be embroidered with whatever name you wish:
