The holidays will be here before we know it, so it’s time to start thinking about how to decorate the halls this year. But while putting up an eye-catching tree or making sure you have a beautiful mantle is undoubtedly important, it’s also the perfect time to upgrade your home’s exterior with some lights, garlands and ribbons. An easy way to get into the Christmas spirit is to even out your Christmas decorations on the front door, whether it’s through greenery, bows and other seasonal things.
“Holiday decor is all about color, texture and form,” says florist Anne Dickson of Fox and the Fleur. “I create bespoke wreaths and garlands that play with the natural elements of the season – evergreens, cones, berries and branches – and layer in unexpected materials such as painted hydrangea, silk flowers and glittering branches.” Whatever your thinking, make sure your front door is a standout this year. Here are over 30 tips and tricks to get guests in the holiday spirit from the moment they ring the doorbell.
