Christmas is coming. It is the time of giving. It is the time for a family and friends and those who you love the most. In general, at this time of the year, we mostly think about gifts, wishes we want to become true, as well as the decoration of our home. Both the interior of the house and the external part, including the yard, should be decorated appropriately. For most people, this part can be a real nightmare. No woman wants her home to be uniform, boring, and the same for every holiday. No matter how imaginative you are, after so many years, it may happen to run out of ideas.
My goal here is to give you the basic Christmas decorations ideas you can turn into reality without much effort. Regardless of whether you look for a recommendation about Christmas table decorations or you are not sure how to decorate your Christmas tree, there are some excellent and practical suggestions how to make your home magical, warm, and comfortable for your family during this beautiful, beloved holiday. Of course, don’t stop here. You can upgrade each of these proposals and rework them on the way they suit you and your family most. Let’s start.

Christmas Tree Decorations
I believe that you can’t even imagine a Christmas without a Christmas tree. Me neither. However, sometimes it is really monotonous to decorate it every year in the same way when there are so many incredibly inspiring and lovely options. Why wouldn’t you be extravagant and do something special for your beloved ones by enlivening your home in an entirely different way? The essential thing is that your Christmas tree fit your home and reflects your personality and taste.
1 – Country Road Glass-blown Christmas Ball Ornaments
If you are a fan of classics and adore glass-blown Christmas ball ornaments, it is OK using your grandma’s ones. If some of them have broken down during years, but you don’t want to replace them with plastic ones, don’t worry. Glass balls are back in fashion, and you can buy them easily.
Depending on your current mood, choose dark green ornaments, or some of the elegant combinations. For this year, I recommend you fancy red and white balls, or an unprecedented combination of red, green, and gold elegance. Mix red berries with green leaves and sprinkle them with gold powder. Add stylish shiny, glitter or matte balls.
2 – Be Original and Unique and Make DIY Christmas Decorations
Sweets – Let your family enjoys old-fashioned decorations with sweets, including candies, gumdrops, cookies, donuts, and ribbon candies. What would be more interesting for the children than the decorations they can eat during the Christmas night?
Cone tree – Make a toddler Christmas tree by yourself or just buy a tall cone Felt tree and let your kids have fun. They can decorate the cone tree with ornaments they make of paper, wool, ribbons, colorful fabrics, pearls, pine cones, and pieces of wood. If you want to make a process easier, buy a set with various ornaments including gold star tree topper, Snowman, Santa Clause, elk, reindeer, snowflakes, Christmas hat, glove, and socks, bells, a house, birds, and sleds.
Photos – Can you imagine a Christmas tree decorated with family photos? Just choose photographs made during summer vacation and put them on the tree. Enjoy all these pleasant memories of the sun, the sea, and palm trees while snowing outside and the fire crackling in the fireplace.
Paper ornaments – It is pretty simple to make colorful retro paper ornaments and remember the days when you were a kid. Ask your children to help you and organize a fun family day full of laughter and real Christmas mood.
Snow tree – Make your Christmas tree white, bright, and frosty. Decorate your snow-dusted fir with white ornaments and white ribbons. Put gifts wrapped in white paper under the tree. What a winter idyll!
Santa dolls – If your children are still very young, surprise them with vintage Santa doll Christmas tree decorating. Go to the flea market, an antique shop, or a local thrift store, and find vintage ornaments and Santa dolls. Your kiddos will be thrilled!
Nature look – Pick out colorful flowers, pieces of wood, and leaves from your garden or the park and decorate Christmas tree. Keep it simple by choosing only one or two colors or make your fir fun with rainbow array solutions.
Be Minimalist this year – Use just silver or golden ribbons to decorate a Christmas tree. The other version is to choose one-color balls. Pick out only fine red, stylish white, cold silver, rich gold or calm blue. For eccentrics, black is the right thing.
3 – Make Your Artificial Christmas Tree Magical
If you prefer artificial Christmas trees, there are a bunch of possibilities.
Pre-lit spruce hinged tree with led lights and pine cones – Choose a tree re-installed with 460 LED warm white lights. Enjoy a tree which is easy to use and energy-saving lamps.
Tree decorated by cute Santa’s suits – This set includes a Christmas tree, 122 pieces of ornaments, and two USB mini string lights which is more than enough to bring a real Christmas spirit into your home. Combine blue and white or rose gold and champagne Santa’s suit. For traditionalists, customary red and white is always a winning combination. Go for it!
Classy decorated tree – Enjoy this set which includes elegant tree, two USB mini LED string lights, and 146 pieces of rose gold and champagne ornaments including star treetop, flower picks, leaf picks, silk ribbons, and rose gold balls.
White Christmas tree – Yes, I know; green is the one and only color of the fir tree. However, I prefer snow and really believe that tree is more sophisticated when it is WHITE! Take advantage of an artificial fir and experience something different. This tree, made of eco-friendly material, looks fuller and more real. The excellent part is that it is the ornament by itself. You need just a few colorful balls to make it perfect.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations
1 – Light LED Nativity Scene
Imagine how powerful is having a large 440-Light LED Nativity scene in your backyard. Nowadays, you can order one, choose the best place in front of your home, and set the scene. It would be nice to put it in front of the big window of the living room and enjoy a view while your family has Christmas dinner.
2 – Window Curtain String Lights
It is definitely my favorite decoration! For your terrace door, pick window curtain string lights available in different colors. Let your home glitter in gold, silver, white, or red, depending on what you like and what is the color of your furniture. Choose between eight possible modes of lighting including steady on, waves, slow fade, slow-glow, sequential, chasing, and twinkle. WOW!

Both figures, made of waterproof material, have super bright LED lights placed inside which will light up your yard and become the most adorable attraction in your neighbors.
5 – Christmas Mailbox Swag
Yes, your mailbox swag can become magical with minimal effort. Buy this fantastic Crestwood spruce mailbox tasseled with red berries, pine cones, silver bristle, and adequate white LED lights. Keep in mind that the battery operating mode includes six hours on and eighteen hours off.
6 – Fir Wreath
I have always loved fir wreaths. You can make one by yourself and decorate it on your own using ribbons, flowers, red berries, jingle bells, and small Santa Close dolls. However, there is a wide range of wreaths you can buy in your local shop or online. This one contains 200 warm LED lights in various colors. I highly recommend the white or green combination. Enjoy every time you come home during a holiday season, and your cheerful wreath will wait for you on the top of the front door.
7 – Timer Candles
All of us like candles, but they can be impractical in the long run. These timer candles are a perfect solution for your Christmas enjoyment in front of your house. A set contains twelve pieces of decorative warm or cold white candles with a timer. Once you turn your romantic candles on, they will light up for six hours. After eighteen hours, they will automatically turn on again in regular 24 hours cycle.
Christmas Table Decorations
All of us desire to decorate Christmas dinner table on the unique and innovative way. There are so many ideas, and sometimes it seems that you have never found the combination that fits you most appropriately. Let’s see.
In the beginning, choose the color which you will use as dominant. Define patterns of the tablecloth you want this year, the shape and type of centerpieces, the color of candles, and suitable tableware. Plus, decide if you wish ornaments, confetti or glass pebbles on the table.
When you have a general picture in your mind, you can start with realization, add or combine different pieces, and spend time playing while finishing a serious job. Let’s try to give our best.
