5 Ways to Deck the Halls

600x120

There’s more to holiday decorating than keeping up with the Joneses — it’s the ideal opportunity to showcase your unique style in a fun, festive way!

If your tastes run traditional, it’s all about lights, baubles, tinsel, and ornaments. Invest in a few pine- or spice-scented candles or decorate your tables with pinecones and holly sprigs you find on winter wonderland walks. Stock up on personalized holiday cards to send to friends and family, hang up your household’s personalized stockings for Santa, and spend a winter evening watching a favorite holiday movie or putting together a gingerbread house.

Family takes the centerstage around this time of year. Get ready for a big family dinner with a few sweet reminders of what’s really important. Set out photo albums, get your camera ready for holiday pictures, and decorate the mantle and the walls with prints of friends and family. There are dozens of ways to immortalize the season: find the one that makes your memories shine their best and brightest.

Sometimes you’ve just got to go big: lawn decorations, Christmas music, hundreds of gingerbread cookies, and a house full of friends! Holiday hosts can save their furniture from spills and smears with reversible furniture protectors, while they blow the neighbors away with a programmable laser Christmas light projector—perfect for holiday parties and neighborhood lights tours. Make some hot chocolate, snuggle up in a personalized fleece throw, and enjoy a bubbly, glittery season.

For a chic, modern holiday season, the taste is everything. Run a minimalist line of clear lights around your Christmas tree, pop the cork on a bottle of sparkling wine, spark a fire in the fireplace, and curl up with a little classical holiday music. Treat yourself to a little peace and quiet amid the bustle of shopping and caroling.

Not wild about Silent Nights? Let  your seasonal sense of humor shine with quirky decorations: from oddball ornaments to custom bobbleheads, from personalized letters from Santa to retro photo prints, an off-beat take on the season brings the light and levity to dark winter nights.

No matter what your style, there’s an easy way celebrate the season on your terms. Find more fabulous decorating and gifting deals on LivingSocial. What’s your decorating game plan?
