A Very Simple Christmas

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

The most wonderful time of the year! Or the most stressful? That’s how a lot of people see Christmas today. Rushing around to buy gifts for everyone, setting up times to see family, getting your tree ready, wrapping presents, cooking, and… decorating! Because at the end of the day, when people stop by or you take a photo of your Christmas tree to share on social media, you want your home to look festive! We know this time of year can be hectic, but don’t stress, because it’s actually super easy to have a lovely looking, Christmas-y feel to your home with limited effort… and the limited spare time you have this time of year.

We made a lovely rhyme to help you remember how to keep it a very simple Christmas!


The 12 Days of Christmas Decorating


1.) A mantel makes a statement with garland or lights;

Or you can go simple with varying heights!


2.) Hang ribbon on your tree to add some personality;

Use plaid and hang it horizontally or vertically!


3.) Lights are always a topic of debate;

colored or white?

White is the winner here,

it makes the room so bright!

4.) Now let’s talk about your tree;

Work with a single theme, or even three!


5.) Why settle for only one Christmas tree; Add a few snow-covered ones and your space will feel oh-so wintery.


6.) To make an easy center piece, think simple but jolly;

Use pine cones and candles, a runner or holly!


7.) Display Christmas china and mugs for festivity;

Use vintage pieces to add creativity!
