9 Easy Holiday Decorations For Busy People

November 23, 2015

Everyone is busy around the holidays. You want your house to look festive for that holiday party, but how are you going to find the time? There are plenty of ideas out there for easy decorations that can have your place looking spectacular in no time! Here are a few ways to cut down decorating time to help fit it into your busy schedule.

  • Opt for a few pre-lit decorations. When you're decorating outdoors, this can save a lot of time since you won’t have to spend time attaching them to the house.

  • Fill glass containers, vases or mason jars with holiday items you either already have or would be buying anyway, like ball ornaments, bows, holiday candy or jingle bells

  • Use items from the grocery store. You’re going there anyway. Cranberries can be part of a centerpiece or buy a bouquet of flowers, a holiday-themed arrangement, or even a seasonal potted plant.

  • Style a vignette or mantle. Try grouping together some items you already have.

  • Decorate with one color. All white winter holiday decorations are very trendy right now, or you could pick a different holiday color. And you won’t have to worry as much whether things match or look good together.

  • Switch out your framed art for something holiday themed. Even if you don’t find anything in a store, this is an easy DIY. You could paint a canvas with an abstract in holiday colors, use a free printable from the internet or even some family photos from holidays past. If you save holiday cards, you could mat and frame the pictures on them for a quick fix.

  • Before your party, hang ornaments in unusual places. A few ideas are from your shower curtain rings, from a light fixture or a ceiling fan.

  • Delegate the responsibility. If you have kids, they may be willing to do some artwork or other decorating project and you’re sure to get something unique and full of personality.

  • Place luminaries. If you buy them, you’ll only need to place them and add a candle. There are also a lot of easy DIY tutorials on the internet.

While you’re putting away the decorations after the holidays, you may find they are taking up more space than you would like. Move It Self Storage can help! Reserve your storage unit today and free up valuable space in your home.
