Deck the Halls: 10 Ways to Add Holiday Sparkle

The staff at Jenks-based GHD Interiors offers some ideas to decorate for the holidays:

Create holiday centerpieces by filling glass hurricane vases with ornaments or painted pine cones.

Replace artwork above the mantle with a real evergreen wreath.

Hang ornaments from a chandelier with decorative ribbons and loop greenery through the chandelier for a rich look.

Display a collection of Nutcracker or Santa figurines. For impact, keep colletions together.

Use polka-dot ribbon and brightly colored ornaments for a youthful feel. Don’t be afraid to use the unexpected.

Decorate with a winter theme. It will last throughout the whole season, not just Christmas. Ice blue and white with touches of red is a “cool” palette.

Cut ribbon to different lengths and hang ornaments from the drapery rings of a curtain rod for a fun sparkle.

Use antique or vintage Christmas decor and ornaments with rich velvet or lace ribbon to create a classic, nostalgic look.

For homes with bold color palettes, use neutral decorations to accent your regular decor.

Replace your year-round decorative throw pillows with holiday-themed pillows in velvets, sequins and needlepoint.
