Decking Your Halls For The Holidays

A lot of people have already started decorating for Christmas. The way this year is going, we don’t blame them. If you’re waiting until this weekend to pull out the lights and the tree, you might want to listen to this advice from Interior Designer, Lauren Clement. We sat down with her on QC Morning to talk about a few tips on making this holiday special, even if you can’t be with the ones you love.
Lauren’s list of new and creative decorating tips:
  • It’s Never “Too Early” – Do Christmas decorations make you cheerful and lift your spirits? If you answered yes, then it’s not too early to start decorating! I might be breaking my own rules this year but our home is already decorated and we couldn’t be happier.

  • Light up the night! – This year we went bright and bold with decorations and installed gorgeous lights on the outside. This not only makes us smile but is a special treat for our neighbors at night.

  • Remember What’s Important To You – Even if you’re not attending typical holiday parties, there’s no reason you can’t set up decorations and keep special traditional alive. For the Clement family, Christmas is much more than pretty deceptions, it’s about celebrating our favorite time of the year together and making memories. My girls enjoy hot cocoa and baking cookies, so I’ve set up a station in the kitchen where they can easily grab and go as needed. What are your favorite traditions? Think about what’s important to you and incorporate it into your decorations this year.
