Blending the Holidays
As I begin decorating for the holidays, it seems every year we start earlier and earlier. I personally love to have Christmas decorations up for Thanksgiving-- it just extends the season and brings holiday cheer!
But what do you do with all those pumpkins and fall foliage when it’s time to switch to red and green?
I like to start with Halloween. I use lots of orange and black, and maybe I add in some green with lots of colorful leaves.
After Halloween, I switch to the warm colors of fall that we all think of with Thanksgiving.
As you set up for Turkey Day in the dining room, think about switching out the orange pumpkins for a sparkly glass or white pumpkin with a gold or silver ribbon.
The colorful leaves and switch to gold and silver branches and maybe a touch of glitter on the leaves. After Thanksgiving, switch out the pumpkins and leaves for evergreens and sparkly branches for the regular holiday fare.
I love having my tree up for Thanksgiving. Did you know that
Thanksgiving is becoming the main family holiday? It’s not only a time to share a great meal with loved ones, but also become a time to get excited for December holidays, whether that be from planning your Black Friday shopping trip or wrapping your gifts.
I have many clients this year that are putting up the tree, and when family gathers, everyone gets the chance to decorate the tree and rediscover wonderful ornaments from their childhood. This is the perfect time to share old memories while also creating new ones! This fills the room with joy, warmth, and love for everyone to share!
