While silly, modern and cool Christmas decorations are all well and good, some of us want to eschew anything cartoonish or childish, preferring the look of old-fashioned, Victorian era Christmas house decorations. Skip that usual wreath and instead go with an oversize garland, stringing it around the top half of the perimeter of your door. Avoid tinsel or brightly colored decorations, instead opting for ribbons, bulbs and stars in romantic colors like burgundy and gold. The finished look is utterly classical and timeless, perfect for those who prefer their holiday decorations to be on the sophisticated side.
Remember to stock up on Christmas greenery to complete the look inside and out. The Home Depot offers plenty of wreaths, garland, swag and colorful poinsettias. We take care of the often-overlooked decorating details, too. Make sure you pick up enough hooks and hangers to properly secure all of your decorations, as well as the appropriate extension cords and surge protectors to protect you and your family from electrical accidents. And when the holiday season is officially over, safely store away your Christmas wreaths, trees, ornaments and lights in one of our many Christmas decor storage options.
It's the season of lights, so make the most of it by filling your home with twinkling colors. Look for mini lights to add specks of color to the Christmas tree or garland in the house. For a more dramatic look, consider C7 and C9 lights to frame your doorways or illuminate outdoor trees. Drape your house in icicle lights that cascade down a few inches from the roof line, or cover your shrubbery with net lights that add instant sparkle. You can stick with a single color for a monochromatic look or spice it up with an array of hues. If you plan to turn your property into a holiday spectacle for your neighbors to enjoy, consider laser lights that dance on the walls or your house and pair them with inflatable characters that expand to take up space and move in the wind.
