The holidays are all about bringing people together. This year, celebrate your most cherished moments by decorating your home for the holidays with personalized creations, while transforming your space with the scents of the season. Use these three tips to take away some of the stress of holiday party planning, then watch the video below to learn more. Brought to you by Evite in partnership with ScentSicles.
1. Anyone who has ever celebrated Christmas knows it’s all about the tree. Decorating your Christmas tree with lights, ornaments, and ribbon is a time-honored tradition, but just as no two families are the same, so it is with Christmas trees. The most important thing to remember when getting your tree ready for the holiday festivities is to make sure it feels like you. If you want a traditional tree, opt for classic Christmas colors and shapes, like red and gold round globes, to decorate your tree. If you want something more modern, try mixing and matching shapes and colors or skip the classic green altogether and try a pink or white tree instead. We kept it classic and added small berries and pinecones to our tree, which you can pick up at any local craft store. Add another special touch by making your tree smell fresh-cut with ScentSicles Scented Ornaments.
2. No winter holiday would be complete without a holiday dinner with friends and family. The holidays are a special time of year, so try dressing up your dining table with a few items that are slightly more special than what you use for everyday dining at home. If you don’t typically use a table runner, try laying one down in the middle of the table before you decorate. Not only will it make everything look more elegant, but it will catch crumbs and prevent spills and stains from making their way to the surface of your tabletop. Then, since it’s the holidays, choose a garland that matches your tree to display over the table runner. Add small holiday accents in between the garland, like pinecones and berries to match the tree or other household holiday items. On either end of the table, create a fragrant tablescape by decorating with ScentSicles Table Ornaments.
3. Even if you don’t have a lot of space, a holiday wreath is an easy way to add holiday cheer to any home. Or, if you have a mantel, decorate using a garland to match the tree and table. Plus, you can even tuck ScentSicles Scented Sprigs into wreaths and garlands to add Christmas fragrance to all your holiday décor. Hang wreaths outside your home on the front door to greet guests as they come in, or place them around your home on walls or above entrances. You can purchase one pre-made from a craft store, or make your own from scratch. Just pick up a plain wreath, then add berries, pinecones, bows and more. Merry Christmas and enjoy!
