Decorating For The Holidays
Begin With Versatile Pieces
The first thing that is important to have when it comes to decorating and furnishing a room is that you should begin with the basics. Begin with furniture that is neutral in color, functional, and comfortable. With neutral colors in your furniture, you will not have to worry about decorations for different holidays clashing with your decor and furnishing that are consistent throughout the year.

Utilize Your Picture Frames
Picture frames are a staple of any home’s decor. The reason for this is because they are easily adjustable and can make a great addition to any room. One way to make your every day picture frames work for any holiday is to trade out the pictures that are being displayed based on the season. Another way is to dress up the frames themselves as each holiday approaches. For example, you may put fake spider’s webs on the frames for Halloween, leaves and acorn accessories for Thanksgiving, and holly, lights, or ribbon for Christmas.
Trade Out Pillowcases
Decorating for the holidays does not have to be complicated process. By simply changing out the pillowcases on your pillows of getting a few patterned or colored blankets for the different seasons may easily help your home feel more festive. There are pillows that even come with sets of pillowcases that coordinate with the holidays.
Books And Candles
Books and candles are your best friends when it comes to decorating for the holidays. Books and candles can be easily dressed up or down to look like Hallowen, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, or New Years decorations. Use dried flowers, leaves, ribbons, and fabric to your advantage to make inexpensive but beautiful decorations for any occasion.
Make Use Of Your Lights
Any easy way to set the mood when decorating for the holidays is to make use of the lights you have and strings of lights that you use for Christmas. Christmas lights can be used for all of the holidays if properly decorated. Your other light fixtures can be manipulated to fit the season by adding swatching of appropriate colored fabric over them or adding festive applications.
