At River City Financial we’re definitely in the festive spirit and are ready to share some of our team’s favourite tips for decorating your new home for the holidays.

Choose a theme
The best thing about having a new home for the holidays is that you have unlimited freedom for the decorations you choose. All that freedom can sometimes be a little daunting, so choosing a theme will offer you guidance on your decorating adventure. Remember, a theme doesn’t have to be too literal. A colour palette, or even a special spot you once visited over the holidays, can inspire beautiful and unique décor for your home.
Welcome guests with holiday cheer
This is the time of year when the exterior décor of your home is just as important as your interior. Adding a festive, yet personal, touch to the outside of your home is a great way to set the tone of your new space to friends and family when they visit for the holidays. Don’t want to string lights along your home’s exterior? Don’t worry! Adorning your home’s front door with a Christmas wreath (or another ornament) that introduces your interior theme is a fantastic way to get your new home dressed up for the season.
Add some holiday scents
Sometimes all you need to make a new house into a holiday home is the smell of freshly baked gingerbread cookies. But, let’s be honest, this is a busy season so baking regularly can be a challenge. Boiling a kettle of water filled with cloves, ginger, cinnamon and orange slices is an easier way to get that same warm-and-cozy holiday ambiance into your home.
Trim your table
We can probably speak for everyone when we say that one of the best parts of the holidays is the food. Most of the gatherings we attend or host are centered around festive eats, so having a decorated table ready is a great way to enhance the area that everyone will be spending a lot of time in! Choose a table cover that accents your décor theme and add a cheery Christmas centerpiece to tie it all together. The options are endless here – from ornaments piled into vases, to fresh flowers in pops of red and deep pink, you can be simple or as creative as your inner elf desires.
