If you’re unsure how to decorate an already crowded space, opt for a classic garland. Wrap it around the mantle of a fireplace or on a window ledge, or even hang it on the walls if you’re feeling adventurous. This will give you space a natural, simple decorative touch without competing for attention with other decor pieces in the room.
- Use Shelving
You’ve probably collected some Christmas-themed knick knacks over the years, but it can be tricky knowing how to display them. Take advantage of bare shelving space by adding small Christmas decor items, helping to keep your holiday home decor all about the details.

A new trend in Christmas trees this year has been using garland and ornaments to spell out personalized phrases on your tree. Whether you want to wish guests “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”, using your tree to greet guests will surely make your Christmas tree a decor focal point.
- Hanging Ornaments
Ornaments aren’t just for the tree! If you feel like a certain area is lacking in the holiday decor department, consider sprucing things up by hanging ornaments, to give it an effortless festive vibe. You can tie ornaments from a chandelier, a curtain rack, or even a tall lamp.
- Festive Placemats
When you’re hosting a family dinner, guests are going to be spending a lot of time at the table. That’s why you should opt for placemats that keep the Christmas decor theme going well into everyone’s second helping of leftovers. Placemats in a classic red or green hue will give a simple festive touch, while faux evergreen placemats would surely be the talk of the meal.
- Festive Foliage
Simply because it isn’t summer doesn’t mean you have to pass on flowers and other floral decor. Consider adding some festive foliage to your home.

You can choose to go with a traditional green, red or white theme, or dare to be bold with an unexpected colour combination.
