Dashing Into Holiday Décor

December 24, 2016

The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful here in Middle Tennessee. As the winter weather gets you in the holiday spirit, it is time to dash into fun and festive holiday décor for your home.

Garland Greenery

Garland greenery is the perfect place to start when decorating for the holidays. For the inside of your home, place a set of garland on your mantle. For a home with a grand staircase in the entryway, like our Everbright home in Franklin, wrap the banister with garland, and add in festive ribbon or bows to complete the elegant look. Moving to the outside of the home, add some holiday cheer by draping your front entryway or porch beams in garland. String some lights, and your home is sure to be the most festive on the block.


Plush Pillows

Pillows are one of the simplest ways to transform your home holiday décor. Pick up a few festive pillows at your local craft store, or stop by a home goods store to mix and match some of your favorite designs. For a cozier feel, toss a coordinating blanket on the couch.

Rustic Wreathes

Bring the outdoors in with rustic wreaths. Try adding a Douglas fir wreath on interior doors in your home. These wreaths will fill your home with one of the most loved Christmas scents that families look forward to each and every winter season. If you want a more unique piece, you can incorporate a pine cone or birch peg wreath into your home. They are great for transitioning into the winter, and can be used for the entire winter season for a farmhouse-chic feel.

Wooden Signs

If you want a cozy farmhouse-feel this holiday season, add a wooden sign to your holiday décor. Many shops carry festive sayings and songs that make the perfect addition to any home. Festive wooden signs look great on a wall as an art piece, or in a home with a large mantle, such as our Hideaway at Arrington Home.

Must-Have Mugs

You can never have too many mugs, and they look great on display Christmas morning filled with a warm cup of coffee or marshmallow topped cup of hot chocolate.  

Quick Tip: Christmas mugs make the perfect holiday gift. Simply purchase your favorite mug, and add a packet of hot chocolate mix or gift card to Starbucks or local coffee shop. Add a bow, and let the gift giving begin!

Wherever you are celebrating the holidays this season, we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours.
