Christmas is little over a week away, so if you're the kind of person who's been dragging their feet about setting up the tree and hanging decorative lights, there's still time to throw together a dazzling display for your holiday guests. However, your procrastination does have its merits - you can get superior deals during this time of the year on Christmas decor that you can use just in time for your festivities and be ready to go next year. Keep the following ideas in mind to make your guests think that you started decorating the week after Thanksgiving!
1. Personalized doormats. You can welcome your friends and family before they even step foot inside the door with a doormat that's personalized just for you. You can choose from anything from decorative holly to elegant scripted text that will give the outside of your home an instant face lift. It can be customized with your family's name to put your personal stamp on your holiday decorations. You can also flank this piece with an opulent Christmas wreath and other holiday accents to perk up the look of your doorstep.
2. A ceramic Santa boot. If you're looking for a fabulous centerpiece for your serving table, a personalized Santa boot would do the trick. The side of the ceramic boot can be customized with your family's name, and you can use it for just about anything. Display a bouquet of fresh cut flowers or fill the boot with a stack of candy canes. This will be a wonderful addition to your holiday decorations and you can weave it into nearly any aesthetic.
3. A customized tree skirt. A tree skirt is a necessary addition underneath your Christmas tree to collect falling pine needles as well as add a finishing decorative touch. Instead of using your tired old tree skirt that's seen a lot of action over the past decade, invest in a winter wonderland tree skirt that can be personalized with your family's name against a charming winter scene. This will improve the look of your Christmas tree and help to liven up the area around it.
There's still time to get some of these fabulous Christmas decorations for your holiday party. Best of all, you'll have everything you need next year, and hopefully you'll get started a bit sooner!
