Decorating Your Home for the Holidays – 2020 Style
As most of us are no longer working out of our offices and home has become the new workplace, decorating your home for the holidays is almost essential to keep your spirits up and find some sense of normalcy. This year has been tough on all of us so it’s important that we enjoy this holiday season as much as possible and ONE way to do it is to go big on decorating. Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas or the New Year, get a head start on decorating and bring that festive spirit into your home.
Let’s Start With Turkey Day
Thanksgiving is around the corner and it’s time to spruce up your home for the special night. Pull out those Fall scented candles, Thanksgiving-themed tablecloths, Autumn-themed plates, and your favorite wreath to get your house looking good and smelling fresh. To perfect your table setting, add some Autumn colored flowers, candles, and even some small pumpkins if you can find them! Don’t wait until the last minute! Small turkeys in particular are selling out fast this year and you’ll want to grab yours soon from your local grocery store. Thanksgiving will be a bit different this year as we aren’t able to see family and friends, but decorating your home for the holidays is the perfect way to lift spirits and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
Decorate Your Office and Home in ONE!
In previous years, our offices were always decorated for the holidays and it was a gentle reminder of the most wonderful time of year. But for many of us, our workspace is now in our home. Don’t let this year be different. Add some of that magic and joy to your home workspace.
Decorating your home is a fun activity with your family as everyone enjoys picking out and putting up decorations. If you’re decorating for Christmas, don’t worry about getting your tree too early. Christmas trees should last up to five weeks at least if they are properly cared for! Get in the holiday spirit by pulling out your favorite pine scented candles and putting up your holiday lights early!
This is also the perfect year for the family to hop in the car and check out the local neighborhoods for the best holiday light displays.
Stay Close With Family and Friends
As COVID is changing the way we celebrate this holiday season, it’s important to stay positive and enjoy this time we have with our family and close friends. Although we aren’t able to travel or get together in large groups to celebrate this year, don’t forget to use other tools to connect. Facetime, Zoom, or Skype your distant family and friends, share a toast, and show off the hard work you put into decorating your home this year.
Have a very safe and happy holidays!
