We’re sharing some of my favorite Christmas decorating ideas for the home. I received some of their holiday candles and fragrances and I honestly love how it all turned out!
Holiday home decor ideas
Eeekk, we are so excited for Christmas around here! MJ has been begging me to decorate since mid-November. I told him to wait until Thanksgiving was over: It’s finally time!
Looking for some holiday cheer at home? These Christmas decorating ideas will help you spruce up your home for the holidays without breaking the bank: just DIY it! We always have company during the holidays, so it’s a must that we dress up this often overlooked area of the home: the guest bathroom.
Simple Holiday Home: Christmas Decorating Ideas for the Guest Bathroom
Since we always host Christmas dinner at our house, I decided to give our guest bathroom a holiday-worthy make-over. I used Glade® candles and fragrances, fresh greenery, holiday ornaments, and other accents in Christmas colors to create this, no huge amounts of cash required!
The Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection was the perfect addition to my holiday decor. They have a bunch of lovely fragrances that are reminiscent of the holidays: Apple Cinnamon Cheer™, Sparkling Spruce™, Frosted Berry Kiss, and Pure Vanilla Joy. Since the bathroom is one of those places that everyone uses, it’s only right to give it a fragrance that will delight our guests.
Holiday bathroom counter decorations
One of our favorite Christmas decorating ideas is the color scheme. We decided to decorate with reds, whites and golds, with hints of green. For the bathroom counter, we grabbed a cylinder vase and stacked a few of our holiday ornaments inside.
The bronze Glade® Sense & Spray Automatic freshener already looks like a home decor item, the new 360° design blends in so well without looking like an air freshener. It senses when you pass it, spraying a burst of fragrance into the air. We also found a cute ceramic snowman and placed it in front of the ornament vase.
The other side of the bathroom counter got a similar treatment to match. I made a smaller ornament vase and placed two Glade Apple Cinnamon Cheer candles in front. I love how candles look in decor, these red ones look pretty elegant in their glass jars, they were perfect! One side was adorned with fresh Christmas tree greens, I grabbed a few scraps from our local tree farm and placed them behind each ornament vase.
Holiday bathroom decor for the toilet
We replaced our usual towels on the towel rack above the toilet with festive red and white ones. If you do not have a towel rack, a wreath would look nice in this space as well.
The ribbon-wrapped toilet paper makes a nice touch; I love how it spruces up the not-so-exciting part of the bathroom, the toilet! Just grab your favorite toilet paper and some red velvet ribbon, measure enough to fit the roll, overlapping a little. Line it up with the seam of the toilet paper roll and use a glue gun to adhere together in that spot. Also, be sure to swap out the towels on your towel bar with some Christmas-themed ones that match your display!
Christmas dinner table decorating ideas
Since we always host Christmas dinner at our house, I am in charge of getting it holiday-ready. The dining table is one of my favorite areas to decorate for Christmas, it just boasts so much festive cheer at mealtime! This year, we followed the theme of fresh greenery, just like we did with our fireplace mantle. I started by layering some of the fresh decorative greenery across the center of the table, adding pine cones, which came with the greens, and Christmas tree ornaments.
Flowers on the holiday table
How it’s possible for flowers to be this beautiful is beyond me! I chose the Holiday Treasures bouquet, it is full of Christmas colors and the cherry red vase matched well with my decor. The perfect holiday table centerpiece!
I created a cute little Christmas place setting that features a DIY Christmas candle favors for our dinner guests. I love how it turned out, I will show you all how to make a Christmas place setting like this one next week!
For a little extra fun, we ordered the Christmas Chocolate Covered Oreo® cookies and arranged them on a holiday tree plate. Adorned with edible candy canes, wreaths, and Santa Clauses, these are super festive and great for guests to munch on before and after Christmas dinner is served!
Decorating the Fire Place Mantle for Christmas
The living room is the area of our home where we spend lots of family time together, so it’s only right that we get it up to holiday speed. We cut our own tree this year, the day after Thanksgiving, and I think that we have a new tradition of decorating that day!
This year, we decided to go with fresh decorative greenery across the mantle, in addition to traditional stockings and holiday plants to compliment the rest of the decor in the house. I just love how our fireplace mantle turned out!
On each side of the mantle, we added a beautiful Honor tree and a cute Snowball Fight in a Bucket, personalized with our family’s name on it! Also, our stockings are hung with cute little candy cane holders, right in front of the fireplace.
On the fireplace, we chose a Potted Rosemary Plant that smells absolutely gorgeous! On the right side, we raised the Wine Country Collection Christmas Basket up on a crate behind the Ho! Ho! Ho! Trio of Trees, they are just too cute!
A beautiful holiday mantle and fireplace
I am super excited to open gifts on Christmas morning in this beautiful room! If we need to light the fireplace on Christmas morning, we’ll just move the stockings, no prob. I can feel the Christmas spirit in our home, I just love that we will be making holiday memories that will last forever.
Decorating the front door for the holidays
If you are getting your decorate on for the holiday season, you might be looking for Christmas decorating ideas for your front door. I like to keep things simple, and I believe that the best way to show a little festivity is with a simple wreath.
There are so many different kinds of wreaths: You can buy or DIY an ornament, burlap, ribbon, or floral wreath, or you can get a fresh, living Christmas wreath. I prefer the latter, and I absolutely love the Jingle Bells Christmas wreath I got from Christmas Forest, it’s beautiful!
