How To Decorate Your Brand New Home for The Holidays

How would you decorate your brand new home for the holidays? Would your house be the brightest one on the block? Or do you like to use more subtle decor that doesn’t overtake your home’s design? Either way, bring on the popcorn string and dancing Santas because the holidays are right around the corner.  


What’s even more special than decorating a home for the holidays is decorating a brand new home. Maybe this is your first home and you don’t have any decorations. Or maybe you feel like your old decorations just won’t cut it for your new digs. If you recently purchased a new home and aren’t sure where or how to start decorating for the holidays, we’ve got you covered with some ideas.  


Lights – Outdoors or indoors, stringing up lights is one of the top ways to decorate a home for the holidays. Stick to archways, doorways, and rooflines.

Pillow Covers – An easy way to add comfort and joy to your home is to switch out your pillow covers for seasonal choices. That way you don’t have to store a bunch of bulky pillows in the garage.

Mantel – A fireplace mantel is a go-to spot for holiday decorations. You can add candles, figurines, greenery, and, of course, make sure the stockings are hung.
