STOCKINGS

Hanging stockings on banisters is a classic look that can be changed every year, just by switching out stockings.  Throw in some color and patterns to shake things up, or keep them simple.  Here are some adorable ideas for giving this classic style a fresh look.  And it’s also functional….especially if you don’t have a mantel or another way to hang stockings.

WREATHS

Hanging wreaths gives you a lot of versatility.  Use the same length ribbon with wreaths in groupings for a traditional style, or use different lengths to create a playful style.  Odd numbers work best with either look.  Go bold with contrasting ribbon, or soft with neutral colors.  The round wreaths lying against the vertical spindles add visual interest- simple yet stunning.

Love the look of Christmas ornaments balls for decorating the stairs.  They give off a playful vibe, and can be displayed a million (or close) different ways.  Hang one by a ribbon between each spindle to add a splash of color, or hang them in groupings or clusters for big impact.  However you decide to use them, you’re sure to create a  happy environment for your home & guests.

CANDLES

Who doesn’t love a soft glow shimmering during Christmas?  Candles add warmth, softness, & ambiance, and you can choose the fragrance that matches your style.  Plus, they illuminate the stair tread to add light. Win-win!!   TIP:  If you have kiddos, you may want to use lanterns for safety.  Hot wax and little toes are not a good match :).

20 Best Christmas Door Wreaths

Decorating for Christmas ranks right up there on the top of my list for all-time LOVES.   This includes my husband & beautiful girls, our incredible families, Texas Longhorns football, and well….. the season of Christmas.   It adds warmth to my heart as we get to share an entire month dedicated to the birth of our Lord and Savior- Jesus Christ.  Amen!!  So, let’s get rolling with The 20 Best Christmas Door Wreaths.

 

 

I know there is so much that goes into putting all of the Christmas decorations out each year:  first the decorations go up inside the house, next the Christmas tree and ornaments get adorned, followed by the outdoor ground lights & inflatables (if you have kiddos), and the finale – the Christmas front door wreath.

It is the jewel of the season, and sets the tone for your entire Christmas theme.  It is your “hello” to welcome your guests when they arrive, and your “hug goodbye” as they leave and travel safely back home.  The right wreath can add warmth, happiness, elegance, color, and personality to your home.  It represents….you & your family.  So, what is your style and what does it say about who you are?
