Sometimes the traditions of Christmas can become utterly boring to some people. If this is the year for a change for you, then consider creating a decorating theme not with what is, but what you’d like it to be.
For example, city dwellers might long for Christmas in the country, in a cozy cabin amid fragrant forests topped with snow. Those who live in the suburbs or a small town could wonder what a sophisticated Christmas might be like. Or the hobbyist or sports fanatic might want the holiday to look like their favorite pastime.
Any of these heart’s desires and more can be expressed in a creative Christmas theme for home decorating. Whether it’s a spouse’s favorite sport or a child’s favorite toys, creative decorating puts the spice and sparkle back into the holiday.
What kind of Country theme would the family prefer? Something like a Western cabin or ranch house? Then gather up some pine cones, dried berries and fall leaves to make wreaths and other display. Select ornaments that look like cowboy boots and hats, leather vests and horses for a ranch style, or get little forest animals like moose and bear ornaments for a more rustic Lodge feel. Either way, consider adding some pillows, throws and a natural fiber area rug to complete the decorating scheme. Get a real Christmas tree and hang up those ornaments.
