You don’t have to spend tons of money on decorating your home for the holidays! These simple changes are sure to bring some holiday cheer into your home without breaking the bank! White Oak Interiors provides Bull Valley Residential Interior Design services for Christmas or any season.
Start Outside to Set the Mood
Wreaths can always be fashionable when done the right way. A plain store-bought piece can be upgraded by gluing your own festive ornaments and candies or you can buy a complete piece that is already decorated with cranberries, lights or bows. Go bold or go traditional. Either way, it will be a lovely way to welcome guests to your home this season.

Dress Up your Mantle Bull Valley Residential Interior Design
Many lovers of Christmas are still very much into the tradition of hanging stockings. This is fun for children in the household (stuff with tiny treats!) and an easy way to adorn your mantle. Have some fun and mix and match patterns or let the kids do some customizing of their own.
On top of your mantle, pine cones can be a simple festive addition, as well as candles and ornaments in tall hurricanes for additional flair and extra ambiance in the evening.
Add Some Plants
Table arrangements are perfect for any season. This season, holly (originally hung above doors to ward off evil spirits and encourage good dreams) can be paired with flowers for a wonderful floral arrangement. Ivy can also work well in an arrangement and signifies good luck in the New Year!
Keep your Tree in Tip-Top Shape
Depending on your taste, your ornaments can range anywhere from traditional to eclectic. Most families tend to keep up with their more sentimental pieces, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add to the tree! Swapping out an old tree skirt for a newer one with a bold pattern or changing your topper from an angel to a bold star can update your tree tremendously. Just don’t forget the little details like tinsel or bows! Every little bit counts.
World Market has unique ornaments that complement every style!
No matter what style you lean towards, make sure it is reflected in your holiday decor. Small changes can make a huge impact in the styling of your home. Happy Holidays!
