Spread Some Holiday Cheer in Your New Home With These Expert Decorating Tricks

We know this Christmas is going to look a lot different from previous ones. Perhaps you won't be able to have your extended family over to celebrate the occasion or get to go out and do all the wonderful holiday activities that make this such a memorable time of year. Luckily, one thing that hasn't changed is your ability to deck the halls of your home so it's a festive wonder. And if this is your first Christmas in a new home you recently constructed, you probably want to go all out. Here's how you can do so.

Garlands aplenty

Garlands are a great way to add some holiday cheer to your home. While the fresh cedar and pine ones will give your home that amazing Christmas scent they're synonymous with, artificial ones work just as well and they bring with them the added bonus of being reusable and budget-friendly. Now that you have a new home with all that extra storage, you can easily pack them away for next year.

For maximum effect, try using garlands on the railing of your beautiful new main staircase, along the window trim of your gorgeous new kitchen, or on the headboard of your big bed in your stunning master bedroom.

String lights everywhere

Narrow string lights with tiny white bulbs help signal that Santa is soon on his way and can be used throughout your new house to make your evenings especially magical. Try hanging them across the mantle of your new fireplace or lay them down on the counters in your kitchen and bathrooms to set the festive spirit. There's really no place they can't be used to add that charming aesthetic that helps make Christmas so special.

Mini Christmas trees

Because one big one just isn't enough, right? If you have some side tables that need a little sprucing up, a mini Christmas tree in a copper pot will add a little vintage flair to your new contemporary house. Adorn the tree with some small ornaments and string lights to really make it pop.


Handcrafted stockings you can stuff

Now we don't mean you have to handcraft them yourself. There are plenty of stockings available to purchase that, while they look handcrafted, are not. This is very helpful in keeping your decorating costs down. These stockings are usually made with old seed sacks and monogrammed with yarn to help lend that old-school authenticity to your house, and they can be stuffed with plenty of small goodies for those in your family.

Holiday throw pillows that cozy up any space

Having a few holiday-themed throw pillows on your main couch or adjoining armchairs is an easy way to make the space more cozy and inviting. You can either choose the tried and true plaid look or opt for something a bit more untraditional, like red ones with a beautiful white reindeer emblazoned on the front. 

Make a festive first impression

While entertaining guests may not be in the cards this Christmas, that doesn't mean you can't outfit your main entryway with wreaths, garlands, string lights, and other decorations. One way you can do this and support a local business this holiday season is by purchasing an impressive Christmas arrangement from your nearby florist.

These arrangements usually contain spruce, pine, and other winter staples and can be layered with string lights to bring that magical holiday glow to your front hall at night.


A Christmas tree for the ages

Last but certainly not least, you need to take full advantage of all that additional space your newly constructed home has provided you by decking out your main living area with a truly exceptional Christmas tree. Since this will be your first Christmas in your new home, why not opt for the real deal and give your family the wonderful experience of having fresh pine permeate throughout your home. We promise it will be worth it.
