Each year as Christmas approaches, I find it harder and harder to actually do any decorating of my home. I want it done, but I just don’t have the energy to get it all out, decorate, and then put it all away. But I have found a secret to decorating in minimal time.
A simple front porch decor that will span the seasons is my first trick. Using a simple blanket and pillow on the front porch pews is the foundation.
Getting the tree up and decorated of course is the goal. Although sometimes I don’t even use traditional balls. Sometimes it just lights and sometimes I add flower or feather picks.
I found the snowball throw blanket at Burke’s outlet and knew I needed it for winter!
Hanging stockings is so traditional, this is always on my list even if my “fireplace” mantel is fake.
A ball garland adds much needed sparkle.

Here are a few things on my wish list of holiday decor items:
Using non-traditional colors is becoming a trend and peacock feathers are one of my favorite unique touches. The colors fit right in with my everyday decor. Adding wreaths and garlands on top of furniture like our warehouse scales adds another touch of festivity.
The honeybee wreath that I made with bee ornaments stays out year ’round. You can see more about it in the post Christmas Wreath that works all year. It makes the whole room smell delicious.
Adding a few more favorite items around around your room will create a Christmas feel that you love.
You don’t have to do it all. I find that if I just add a few favorite things, that eventually the mood will strike again and I’ll be energized and motivated and decking the halls full force once again.
Are you an early get ‘er done decorator? or a better late than never??
