The season of glad tidings and cheerful giving is almost upon us, so the time to start prepping your house with Christmas decorations is now. 

With the holidays just around the corner, the team at March Homes would like to give you a few ideas for Christmas decor to make the most wonderful time of the year a magical and unforgettable period.


A Piece of Naturefamily warms feet by the fire

All iconic Christmas decorations usually feature a Christmas tree, the more real it looks, the better. Other iconic decor pieces, like garlands and mistletoe, involve something natural. Hence, creating a Christmas theme of nature, with authentic pieces of nature, should be popular.

Of course, some might be wincing at the thought of the cleaning up that is necessary for natural decorations. Luckily, a great number of faux-natural decorations exist that can get the job done with none of the cleaning up hassle associated with the real deal. Another advantage the fake decorations bring to the table is their reusability year after year.


LED String Ball Lights

Traditional Christmas lights are great but they can also be quite difficult to handle. Figuring out how to hang them the right way without tripping anyone up with the power cables and breaking the lights is a problem fit for a genius. Contending with the lights when some of the bulbs are not working is another headache all on its own. Thankfully, LED lights on string are a great alternative. These low-cost lights come with a variety of flash settings and are battery-powered. With no power cables waiting to trip someone up, you can decorate your Christmas tree, the indoors, or the outdoors however you like.

A Non-Traditional Color Scheme

The traditional Christmas colors of red and green still evoke the spirit of the season but forgoing those in favor of less-used colors can prove interesting. Metallics and gold colors can create a heavenly sparkle that makes the Christmas season enchanting in a different way. Some bright colors like blues, greens, and pinks could create a remarkably energetic theme.

Straying away from the more typical colors of Christmas decor might be risky, but, if you pull it off, it will be brilliant and memorable.

DIY Decorations

If you really want to eschew the traditional Christmas decor ideas, why not tap your creative side and make some of your own decorations this season? This is especially fun if you can rope your family into the process. For those who feel like they don’t have that spark to be creative, many online spaces hold directions that will help them create something personal and memorable.
