The snow is falling and winter is officially on the way. Which means now is the perfect time to follow the tips below to transform your home for the holidays! With an ornament here and some twinkle lights there, just a few simple touches are all you need to fill your home with holiday spirit. And the best part? You don’t have to spend a ton of time or money to deck your halls for the season because Kitchen Stuff Plus (KSP) has everything you need for every room in your home, all at affordable prices. From the trimmings on your tree to your holiday table, they’ve got you covered.
1. Keep it simple.
Be consistent with colour. Whether you choose one festive colour (I’m a sucker for that traditional red!) or two, consistency is key. Carry those same colours through everything from ornaments, candles and linens through to storage boxes, blankets and even as the finish touch on your fresh greenery!
Match. Match. Match. Giving everyone the same stocking makes for a clean look that is easy on the eyes. I personalize mine with our initials above so there’s no confusion on Christmas morning! I’ve even carried that same style over to our tree skirt as an extra touch.
2. Make it last.
Think “winter” instead of “holiday”. With the exception of our Christmas tree, all our décor stays out through the entire winter season! That’s because I choose items that are winter-themed like little houses (hello, beautiful table centerpiece!) and animals, and classic staples like cozy blankets perfect for cold nights.
Don’t forget your table! Gold chargers and cutlery, simple white plates, red napkins and neutral candlesticks make my table-top a show-stopper all season long! A classic palette works from now to the new year, meaning less work (and less expense!) for me, without compromising on style.
3. Don’t forget the finishing touches.
Extra ornaments add extra style. Now I know it’s not just me, right? We’re all guilty of buying more ornaments than our trees can hold! Put those extras to good use on your table for a designer’s touch.
Weave in seasonal greenery. From your stairway, to your table, fresh greenery adds a layer of comfort and sophistication to any décor. Don’t have time for a nature walk? KSP has you covered with faux options including, wreaths, candle boughs, and even a winter forest-scented candle that will do the job!
With a little bit of holiday magic and an endless selection of festive décor and products from Kitchen Stuff Plus, you can take the season from frightful to delightful in no time! Run, don’t walk to kitchenstuffplus.com for more holiday inspiration and essentials!
