Admit it or not, there’s a certain sense of excitement that you can feel once the holiday season kicks in and you have to decorate your home. But even if you’re just recycling old decorative pieces, buying out ones, or trying out custom holiday ornaments, one thing is for sure — you have to settle down first with a theme. After all, it’s the one that binds the looks and vibes of the decorations you will put up inside and/or outside your home.
The question is, how do you decide on this one? In this article, we’re giving out helpful tips on choosing the most suitable theme for you during this year’s holiday.
Look for theme inspiration. Do you want to go vintage or do you want your decorations to exude a modern and contemporary vibe? Whichever your preference is, it’s essential to find a theme inspiration so you can visualize what your desired theme looks like. These pegs can come from lifestyle shows, magazines, and social media apps like Pinterest and Instagram.
Allocate a budget. Of course, you’d have to shell out a certain amount of money in order to turn your holiday decor dream into reality. That’s why a fundamental step you have to accomplish early on is the allocation of your budget for decorations. Bear in mind that you’ll have other expenses items during this season like sending out gifts and hosting/attending parties.
Choose a color scheme. Holiday decoration themes are heavily dependent on color schemes. If you want to exude a White Christmas kind of vibe, you should opt for decorations that are white and silver in color. Traditional vintage themes mostly use red-green-silver and natural brown-gold-green color combinations. Take note that whether you use conventional or custom holiday ornaments, they should be aligned with your preferred color scheme.
Try out a theme by collectible or hobby. The holiday season is also a great time to shine the spotlight on things you love. Are you a toy collector or a vinyl record aficionado? Why not use your collectibles as part of your holiday decorations?
Check your inventory. If you want to go easy on your budget, one way to do so is to recycle previous holiday decorations. You can even get creative and resourceful at the same time by deciding on your theme depending on the majority of ornaments you have.
Add a personal touch. Nothing is cozier than having your home decorated with custom holiday ornaments. Hang personalized decorations on your Christmas tree, and jazz up your tabletops with customized holiday pieces like snowman-figurines and photo frames. You can also make use of personalized ornaments as your gifts to your relatives, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
Align your party theme with your decorations. Planning to host a holiday party at your home? Make sure to have the party’s theme in sync with the theme you already have for your holiday decorations. Apart from aesthetic purposes, this will help you maximize your budget allocation for your Christmas decoration.
