Pick A Theme
  • Pick a color theme for throughout the house for this Christmas
  • Make your choice, red & gold, silver & blue, multicolor
  • Start early: December goes too fast, get it done end of November
House Decorations
  • Choose lights, garlands and artifacts
  • 'Bulb it up' around the house
  • Add festive table settings with centerpieces and scented candles
  • Hang ornaments, bought & handmade, throughout the house
  • Set shelves & cabinets with sleighs, snowmen, angels and villages
  • Include cookies & goodies plates
Tree Choice
  • Real needles versus plastic 'fake'
  • Fake trees are easy to assemble and reusable every year, no mess
  • Real live trees smell great and last a few weeks
  • Get them 1 week in advance and keep them in a watered base
  • Dry or not, use a large tree 'skirt' & catch all the needles dropping
  • Add stability, tie fishing line to a ceiling hook and the tree top
  • Check your clearance to add your tree topper, angel or star
  • 6 to 8 footers will work in room heights of 8 to 10 feet
Christmas Tree Decorations
  • Lights, bulbs, tinsel, garlands and craft ornaments
  • Work together, spread out the lights and get them untangled
  • Wrap them around the tree starting from the top to the bottom
  • Take pieces of white angel hair & set in front of individual lights
  • Add 2 sets of 100 lights for a 6-7 footer
  • Choose one colored set & one white set of lights
  • Wrap theme colored tinsel, snowflake or popcorn garlands
  • Add large mid and small sized bulbs bottom to top in your colors
  • Kids love putting on small bulbs and ornaments--keep them plastic!
  • Add kids crafts & decorations to make your tree part of the family
