Christmas Decor Tips and Ideas


Decorating for the holidays has become far more elaborate than it used to be. No longer are colorful lights enough to help people get into the Christmas spirit. While people are going bigger and better with their Christmas decorations at home, so are commercial businesses. LED lights, oversized decorations and interactive displays are quickly becoming the norm for commercial christmas decorations because they can be effective in attracting traffic and customers. Since the process of decorating a commercial building can be a challenging process, here are some tips to make the process go a bit smoother.

Know Your Restrictions

Before planning what type of decorations you want to display, it is vital to know any restrictions that may be in place on your property or in the surrounding area. If you are leasing a space or building, the landlord may have restrictions as to how elaborate a display can be. Some cities also have restrictions on the height of Christmas displays.

Know Your Audience

Ask yourself, "Who are the people you hope to attract with your decorations?" For example, if your business is in an area where there are large groups of people who celebrate holidays other than Christmas such as Chanukah or Kwanza, think about what appeals to them. If your business caters to families with young kids, think about what would most appealing.

Buy From A Reputable Source

Christmas decorations for commercial spaces have become big business over the last few years. As a result, there are lots of companies vying for your business. Do your homework to find a reputable retailer who not only provides the types of decorations you are seeking, but are also top quality. A great example is Holiday Lights & Magic, Inc. at www.holidaylightsandmagic.com. They offer one of the largest selections of quality Christmas displays for commercial purposes as competitive prices. Their selection includes such staples as oversized ornaments, giant commercial trees, and LED lights.

Don't Go Overboard

Decorating for Christmas stops being fun or profitable when you go overboard in burdening your team, your time, and your budget. To avoid such headaches, start planning months in advance your budget and what you hope to accomplish. Holiday decorations do not have to be a burden, but can be a fun and profitable experience for your business. The key is to plan ahead to make the most of the opportunity.

Tabletop Trees Make Great Decor

People in many apartments and smaller homes have seen the value of using tabletop trees. Although most commonly associated with Christmas decor, these tabletop trees are also a great choice for other holidays and occasions. If you've never used one of these smaller trees, you'll have some healthy inspiration from these ideas.

Many people enjoy decorating for Valentine's Day. Balsam Hill reviews are quite helpful for helping determine how suitable tabletop trees are for decorating uses. It's easy to decorate a small tree for Valentine's Day using some combination of white and either pink or red. Use smart hearts that you've crafted yourself, and consider some tinsel for extra flair.

An old custom that many German and German-American families follow is hanging decorative eggs on their bushes and tree branches at Easter. For families that prefer to decorate indoors for this occasion, tabletop trees are a good solution. If you wish, you might prefer to use some small strings of white lights to add further to the look.

In recent years, many have gotten very creative about using decorations for patriotic holidays, particularly the Fourth of July. Festive red, white and blue ornaments, combined with silver tinsel, will make a fun statement when you have guests over for the holiday. In the place of the buntings used in outdoor settings, try some red, white and blue ribbons.

Halloween has quickly become a holiday that rivals Christmas in terms of decorating. Many now decorate for Halloween as much as they do for Christmas if not more so. Find or make ornaments featuring black cats, ghosts, pumpkins and more fun Halloween figures. You might start a new Halloween decorating trend among your family.

Some people use two trees at Christmas, in observance of a popular old custom. A Jesse Tree, very popular with many families with children, uses ornaments based on popular Biblical stories throughout the season of Advent. Depending on family preference, the Jesse Tree might serve as a Christmas tree once all the ornaments are on, or it might be a separate, smaller tree. Tabletop trees are a great choice when families prefer the latter option.

Decorating with Hanging Lanterns

Hanging paper lanterns are a fun and elegant way to decorate for special occasions such as birthday party or wedding reception. They add a bit of whimsy to any event without going overboard, and can be incorporated into the decorations in various ways.

For a daytime event, you probably won’t light the lantern and can hang them by simply tying a piece of fishing line to the wire hook and then hanging them from the desired area. Another option is to string fishing line from point A to point B, and then hang single lines at different lengths attached to the paper lanterns on the main line. If the event takes place after the sun goes down, you can use illuminated paper lanterns to give a stunning glow to the party. Illuminated lanterns can be hung in the same manner as ones that are not lighted.

The Durability and Convenience of Aluminum Hand Rail

Designing rooms in your home can be a fun adventure. If your room contains stairs, you will have to choose what type of stairs you want to install, whether you want to have carpet on them and what type of hand rail you would like running parallel to the stairs. When you want quality and durability, you will want to choose aluminum.

A hand rail made from aluminum will give you a lightweight product that has the durability to stand the test of time. You can find aluminum options in all sizes and shapes to meet your design needs. If you are decorating an outdoor space, you can still use an aluminum option because it is a material that can resist damage from excessive heat, cold and other weather elements that may be a normal part of your particular climate. Aluminum hand rails also work great when you are designing commercial spaces. It can save contractors a few dollars and provide the designer with an interesting option to design around.

The Use and Art of Chandelier

The idea of the chandelier has shifted over time. A mention of this kind of lighting used to bring to mind the bright light fixture sparkling with ornate crystals hanging over a dinner table, ball room or main building entrance. One could not recall images of a chandelier without thinking of wealth, abundance or lavish lifestyles.

Shopping for Christmas Decors

Christmas season is  coming soon! Are you slowly getting ready for it? I hope you are.  I  was reading a magazine this afternoon and found a title of one of its articles that says, "Christmas time is gift giving time!  It just reminded me to slowly get ready for my presents.  For now, it will be secret to whom I will be giving it. yay! Just kidding folks!

Christmas  decors in a Supermarket we went last time.
I am finally done shopping for Christmas decors. I bought the last thing I need for decorations when I went grocery shopping today.  I also bought some Christmas cards, gift wraps and ribbons. I don't need  to buy a lot of Christmas decors anymore because I already bought a lot last year.

I bought it after Christmas season and they were on sale. I was lucky buying  glass balls for our Christmas  tree in a very very cheap price. I truly saved a lot of money for that. Imagine getting it for  a $1.00 and its original  price ranges from  $5.00 to $10.00  per set.  It was truly a great deal.

Shopping tips  to all ladies out there, try to buy things that are off season. For sure you can have it in a  cheaper price. You will also need it again and again the next season  like what I did when I shopped for my Christmas decors.

Planning for Holiday Season

Two more months and the Ber months are  coming soon.   I know this is quite too early to plan  for holiday  season but sometimes planning earlier will surely save us  time and money.  I am actually talking about Christmas decors here since I saw some brown wire christmas lights online.  I guess it is perfect for our patio and I find unique. I am just quite excited how our patio looks during Christmas. For sure, it will be filled with decorations.

There are still a lot of plans on the line but we are trying to put first the most important ones. I can't also wait till the holiday seasons come. Have a lovely Sunday to everyone! Be safe!

Advent Candles

This year is my first time to make Advent Candles. I used to buy some the past years. Last Sunday, I finally did it. Hubby was asking me that morning what am I doing with that wooden box and all those pine trees cut from our garden. I told him that I will make my Advent Candles. He was surprised that I finally had one after around thirty minutes of making it. I finally lit my first Advent candle last Sunday. Christmas is around the corner.

Have a lovely December to all! Happy holidays too!

my home-made Advent Candles. Anyone wants to order? Just kidding guys!
