BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – If you’re in charge of hosting this year’s event, you may think you don’t have the time and the money to give your home a new look.
The holidays are that special time of year when we reunite with our family and friends and in some cases we may not have seen these loved ones since the previous holiday.
Nothing says “Christmas!” like a beautifully decorated home. Fragrant greens, twinkling lights, holiday centerpieces all set the stage for a merry holiday season. But at what cost?
INVENTORY DECORATIONS YOU ALREADY OWN
Before you dash out to the craft store or trim-a-tree shop, pay a visit to the attic or storage room. Memories fade from year to year, so refresh yours with a quick inventory of the holiday decorations you already have on hand.
Keep them in mind as you read Christmas magazines or check out the Festival of Trees displays. You can update your decor with a few simple additions.
Twinkle lights, deliver a big impact on a small budget.
String them across your mantel, twist them around a chandelier, or even add some sparkle to your bedroom and bath.
You might like them so much that you decide to leave them up year-round.
Don’t neglect local craft fairs or art shows as a source for inexpensive Christmas decorations. Most items are reasonably priced, and generally, the proceeds go to a good cause. Support your local crafters and save!

Be Creative! There’s no need to break the bank to decorate your house for the holidays. Simple strategies and a dash of creativity can go a long, long way when it comes to decorating.
Get your house in shape and ready for the season. Make it be beautiful, lively, fun and Frugal.
If you are trying to sell your home durning the holidays I suggest displaying just a few items. Can you imagine trying to show Clark Griswold’s home in the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie?
