Decorating for Christmas

How to fit Christmas into your Decor?

Christmas is typically a season of excess!  Excessive decorations, some might even say gaudiness!

At least it is only for a season!

The thing to remember is that Christmas is only for a short period.  It is all about giving, family, friends and merriment.  So enjoy the season!

To help on the decor side, pick a colour scheme for your decorations.  My tree is always decorated in blue and silver.  Other combinations could be red and gold, green and red, black and white just to name a few.  At this time there is no right or wrong.  Do resist the temptation to add more colours.  Now is when we pare back with less is more!

Tie this back to your Christmas table with your decorations.  Table runners, napkins, crockery all in matching hues of your tree!

Christmas decorating is saved!

Wishing you and your family every happiness over this Christmas.
