Winter decorating is a family tradition for many, as well as a delight way to get in on the holiday fun and festivities while staying safe at home. Discover how you can include seasonal décor into the holidays this year without breaking the bank (or overwhelming your storage solutions when January rolls around).
Be like the decorating and design pro’s by using what you already have to fill a space! Do you have thick, knit throws sitting in your hallway closet? Drape them over a windowsill and add a stack of books for a cozy reading nook. Is your backyard filling up with pinecones? DIY a vase filler by hot gluing them to spare twigs, and then spray paint them gold, white or keep them neutral to match your décor. By using simple home goods you already have, you can save a ton while getting extra use out of your items.
Think for the Season, Not the Holiday
Winter in Utah, as we all know, lasts much longer than just the traditional holiday season. Utilize seasonal décor, rather than holiday décor, for a long-term decorating solution that will last as long as the winter. Then, as spring slowly rolls around, begin replacing your décor one by one to transition into the next season without becoming too overwhelmed.
Storage Solutions Built to Last
When you’re ready to take down the décor, you’re already halfway there – thanks to those elements you incorporated that already had a place to ‘live’ like those thick blankets that can go back into your linen closet. For everything else, consider out-of-the-way elevated storage in your garage, attic, or basement. Easy to install, this anchored system stays out of eyesight for the other three seasons of the year and won’t take up vital storage space you may need quick access to.
