Don't forget your home or office windows when you're decorating for the holiday season.
It’s that time of year again to, as the song says, deck the halls with boughs of holly. Trouble is, in homes with an open floor plan, there are no halls. (Or none to speak of.) And even if you have halls, or choose to deck the walls instead, that may not be enough to celebrate the season. Time to turn your attention to your windows.
“Windows at home or at work [that] are decorated for the holidays [can be] seen from miles away,” familyholiday.net says. “There is something very magical and amazing about seeing the spectacle of light and Christmas decor from a home on a cold winter night during Christmas time. There are so many different ways, ideas and styles to decorate windows at home or at work for the holidays to choose from.”
If you’re short on ideas, digsdigs.com has a few: “Hanging wreaths, ornaments, pine cones, gifts, advent calendars, even cookies – you can hang almost everything you want to! Lights are a very cool and kind of romantic idea – it’s suitable for every window and great even after the holidays. If you don’t want to hang anything, decorate the window sill then. Put evergreen plants, pine cones, branches in bottles or vases, some figures or even a small Christmas tree.”
If you’re still stumped, or you simply want to see how others decorate, try a road trip to Columbia where the San Joaquin County Historical Society & Museum has its festival of trees event this weekend. Or try the city of Livingston, where they have a month long lighted Christmas tree forest decorated by residents and businesses.
