It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… or should be! Are you ready to deck your halls? If not, we have some suggestions, from House Beautiful. From elegant coastal chic to casual rustic country, or traditional holiday red and green, there are a myriad of ways to decorate your Christmas tree so it has a personal touch while complementing your home décor.

Christmas trees can vary in size and type, flocked or natural, and adorned with lights or not. Ornaments and themes can be colorful and mismatched, showcasing a collection of ornaments passed down through generations, or modern and monochrome for a contemporary feel.

Things to consider include, do you want sparkle and shine with glass and metallic ornaments, or seashells, raffia bows and other natural décor for more neutral look? Also, instead of placing one large tree in your foyer or living room, place several small trees throughout the house. When entertaining, this provides a special treat for guests as they move from room to room to receive an unexpected holiday welcome.

And along with all of this decorating, dining, and celebrating, don't forget the most important part of all... Have fun and enjoy! After all, this is the most wonderful time of the year!
