4 Unexpected Places for Your Holiday Decorations

Let every nook and cranny channel a festive vibe with these ideas


When it comes to decorating the house for the holidays, most homeowners place the Christmas tree in the living area, hang the wreath on the front door or on an empty wall, and place mini accessories in the dining room and foyer, too!

If you're thinking of doing something special this year, why not add a few pieces in the unexpected areas and corners at home too? Here are four ideas to get you started:

Kitchen counter

Since you will be preparing the extra special meals in the kitchen, you need to make sure that it's styled for the occasion too! Fill clear glass jars with sweets like brownies and candies for a warm and charming setup. You may also come up with a hot choco station—complete with marshmallows, chocolate, and peppermint.

RL Tip: Use twigs and pine cones to decorate your holiday corner.

Spruce up your mini garden by decorating your planters with burlap and red ribbons! You can also paint them in lively colors such as green, red, or gold.

Bedside table

There are many ways to bring Christmas magic into your room! If you don't have a space for a Christmas tree, place a mini piece on your side table. You don't even have to buy a new one—simply work with your favorite greens and flowers and place them in colorful vases and planters.

A few poinsettias can liven up a plain bathroom! Consider placing them in a wooden container for a cozy touch. You can also add a jar of potpourri to neutralize odors.

Got a plain wall in the private space as well? A colorful wreath can serve as the perfect wall accent!
