With the Christmas
season fast upon us, it is time to start decorating our homes in the
festive spirit. Many families use the same decorations year after
year. Others go all out and try to change their design style with
every passing season. As the holidays tend to be a time when people
do a lot of entertaining in their homes, why not consider adding
something extra to your holiday décor?
In years past, we
have approached our holiday decorations with a certain theme in mind.
One year, we decorated our home to look like Santas workshop.
Another time, we dressed our living room like a life-sized nativity
scene. Last year was my favorite, by far: We transformed our home
into a beach complete with sand and palm trees, and had Christmas
in Hawaii. The opportunities are endless. If you are planning to
have guests over during this holiday season, consider trying
This year we are
decorating our home in a winter wonderland theme. The idea is to
transform our living room into, you guessed it, a winter wonderland.
We are planning to use a lot of blues, whites, and silver. This will
be great fun for the kids and me, while we get to spend an afternoon
making paper snowflakes. You remember those dont you? The ones
we all used to make in elementary school, where you fold up a round
piece of paper and take little snippets out of it with scissors to
make unique snowflake patterns. So much fun! We will also use lots of
those silver icicles, and include snowmen ornaments of various shapes
home really helps get your family and friends into the Christmas
spirit. We usually invite our extended families over to help. It
gives all the children an opportunity to share in what has become a
wonderful family tradition. It also gives the adults a chance to
enjoy some good company and maybe even some spiced-up egg nog! Later
in the day we will likely all gather around the television and watch
our favorite Christmas movie. We like to watch "A Christmas
Story" every year as a family. Its a wonderful way to spend some
quality family time, and can be a lovely bonding experience.
