There is no doubting whatsoever that one of the best and most fun parts of the holiday season is that you get to decorate your home in a really amazing and festive way. However, sometimes, people can’t control themselves and what might have been tasteful seasonal décor turns into something out of the worst! To avoid suffering that same fate yourself, here are holiday decorating mistakes that always spoil your holiday decorating.
You need to pay lots of attention to where you put your Christmas tree. It should be somewhere that is easily accessible, but not somewhere that you are going to have to walk around and across all the time.
You leave the lights on all night, inside and outside. This doesn’t necessarily affect the overall look of your decoration, but it is a huge energy sap and it can be annoying for your neighbours!
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that there is no such thing as too much, because festive decorations can get incredibly overbearing if you try to pack too many different items into a small space.
You make the mistake of forgetting that there are children in your home and that your delicate, precious decorations might not be suitable for little hands and active legs! Think about child safety.
You only decorate the living room, whereas you should be spreading the festive joy in more areas of the house. You want to be reminded that it is Christmas in every single room.
You can lose your enthusiasm for Christmas if you make the decision to decorate too early. Be patient and resist the urge any time in November; leaving it until later will make it more special.
