"Deck The Halls"
In early October we did a luncheon seminar at The 1818 Club in Duluth, GA, sharing tips on what we do when we decorate a home or business for the holidays.
For those of you who find holiday decorating overwhelming, we hope this 4 step plan brings you less stress for the holidays.
Step 1. Choose a theme. By choosing a theme to design around keeps your decor complimentary throughout your home or office. A theme can be a color (ex. red & green - below), a time period (ex. Victorian) or even a character (Santa).
Step 2. Plan your layout. Where do you want to decorate? Are you having a party? Think about where your guests will roam. Think about curb appeal. For the best effect, have a little something in every room your guests will visit.
Step 3. Check last year's decor. What do you have from last year that can be stripped and repurposed? Do you have a garland with lights? How about a wreath? Did you know a simple change of bow color and adding lights can make a huge difference.
Step 4. Design it. This is our favorite part. Here's another tip that we do here at Synergy in Silk. When designing, we don't use a lot of glue or wire on everything. We'll typically tie on ornaments, cones and additional greenery with chenille stems (pipe cleaners). We can control the height ornaments hang, we don't damage the base greenery, and we don't have excess damage to our hands.
We hope our 4 step plan helps ease your holiday decorating. For more tips, contact us at email@example.com.
