Decorating your North Shores, IL Home for the Holidays

Decorating your North Shores Home for the Holidays
Technically it is still fall. It truly is. Though you’d never know it by the howl of the wind and the below-20-degree temperatures. Well…this is Illinois I suppose and sometimes fall just doesn’t last as long as we had all hoped it would. But instead of sulking over the bitter temperatures, you can turn your focus to getting excited about decorating your North Shores home for the holidays! There are so many fun and unique ways you can make your home feel festive this holiday season.

Using a vase or apothecary jar for decoration
Whether you have built-in shelves or want to add a festive centerpiece to your kitchen or dining room table, vases, bowls and apothecary jars can be a fun and inexpensive way to decorate. Some ideas for fillers for these jars include Christmas ornaments, red and white peppermints or even some fake cranberries. If you have several different sizes of vases or jars you can fill each with something different for a fun, eclectic look.

Decorate already existing elements of your home décor
There are plenty of simple ways to take items you are already using in your home décor and add some holiday touches. Some examples of this would be to hang some Christmas ornaments from a chandelier or if you have an indoor wreath hanging on a decorative mirror (or just on the wall), you can add some holly and fake berries to it.

Hang your stockings with class
In hanging your stockings, make sure you add some finishing touches! First, if possible, all the stockings should have a similar color scheme. Sometimes simpler is better (for instance, all solid red stockings with white fluffy tops and names embroidered). Save those non-matching stockings for an area of your house that isn’t the main point of focus, not over your family room fireplace. Also, select some stocking holders that match and will add some decoration to the room. Another idea is to add some garland behind the stockings so they really “pop.”
