A Classic and Classy Christmas

Decorating your beloved home

Another holiday season is upon us and it’s time to find some interesting ideas for your home. The main colour scheme of the decoration is red-green-gold, which is classic, yet never off-trend. You can find these items easily or simply re-use them from the previous year. Save with style.


An easy way to add some seasonal ambiance to your home is with garlands. I love the National Tree 9 feetx10 inches Norwood Fir Garland with 50 battery operated warm white LED lights because you can make it your own.  It is beautiful as is, but also offers the perfect base to get more creative.  You can really add some flair by adding ornaments, berries, bows, or pine cones to the strands. The strands can go anywhere and everywhere.

Outdoor lighting:

These energy-efficient LED lights are beautiful and durable. This set contains 3,000 heavy duty LED lights constructed to withstand extreme conditions – from hot to cold – all year long. Which means taking them down at the end of the season isn’t necessarily required.  You can use them on other occasions, as well. Additionally, they are much more efficient than your typical incandescent light bulbs. At 30 watts total, these lights don’t get hot – even after burning for hours.

Stocking clips:

This year, try these handy helpers to hang your stockings. The Original Mantle Clip Stocking Holder is very useful. These cute mantle hooks are 3 inches, easily fastening onto your ledge for a season free of stocking slips. Included in the set is four hooks, plus a piece of chalk, so you can write out everyone’s name for Santa to see.

The Kurt Adler 16-inch Wooden Gingerbread Christmas Nutcracker is everything a nutcracker should be – fun, pretty and practical. This iconic seasonal piece is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Seasonal scents:

When you think about any holiday season, the thought is usually accompanied by memories of delicious aromatic fragrances. Christmas is a favourite holiday for many, and there is no doubt that the smell of pine is one of the top seasonal scents. Try the Thymes Frasier Fir Pine Needle Candle. This 6.5-ounce candle offers 50 hours of burn time, so you can get your pine scent fix all season. The scent is fresh and lively, perfect for any room in the house. It comes in a glass jar covered with prints of pine, so it works as a decorative piece, as well.

Tree topper:

At the peak of your Christmas tree should be a very special piece, and chosen with great consideration.  This showpiece should align with your seasonal décor. Whether you go the traditional, contemporary or avant-garde route for decorating this year, there is no shortage of options for colour and style. The Kurt Adler 10-Light Multi-Color Capiz Star Tree Topper could be the perfect piece to top your tree this year.
