Christmas Ribbon Décor

One chic Christmas idea that will surely give a touch of elegance to your place is to make ribbons as part of your Christmas decorations. These bows will surely add to the festive theme and will pretty much blend well in your home if these decors are matched up with your decorating scheme. These ribbons can be added onto the backs of the chairs, even placed on the candlesticks or to your candlestick holders, to complement those beautiful wreaths and garlands, or wrapped around your basket handles, to dress up your drapery tie-backs, to decorate the railings of your stairs or even to doll up boring doorknobs.

Tableware for Christmas

You can add to the festive fare on your table by placing dishes and cutlery that reflects the holiday cheer. You can begin by having a set of Christmas dishes and dinner plates that will go well with the plates that you use daily. Your collection could grow each year if you keep adding sets of dishes every year. You can display these dishes onto your table and you will surely receive a number of comments for these plates and can even evoke memories. The good thing with this idea is that this will go a long way as you add to the collection each year and you can still make use of these plates even after the holiday period is over.

Delightful Christmas Candles

Place a number of scented Christmas candles on your dining table and enjoy dining by candlelight. This will not only create an ambiance that is soothing to your senses, it also could add that special touch of charm as you enjoy even the most simple of dinners with your loved ones.

Another way to enjoy having candles around during this holiday season is to strategically place some scented pillar candles in the bathroom. They can be placed around your tub or on the sink. It is also wise to take the time out to relax and enjoy having a bath as you are surrounded by these scented candles and the soft glowing lights. A word of caution though for those who have little children at home, make sure that an adult is always in the room with them when you have candles as part of your Christmas decor. With that cautions said, this idea will no doubt be helpful to you as you enjoy this joyous period.

Nature’s Gifts

You can make some interesting arrangements using some of your Christmas tree’s leftover greens. Make a few arrangements and place them in simple bowls. You can set these simple Christmas displays in your bookcase, on the kitchen sill, place them on your bath sink, or on the tables. Pine cones can also be a part of your simple Christmas décor, place these cones that are also adorned with some ornaments and ribbons and set them in bowls or in baskets.

These ideas will surely fill your house with a lot of Christmas fun and will also give you a sense of achievement and pleasure as you decorate your home with these simple Christmas displays.
