Easy Elegance tip:
Decorate “seasonally” rather than for a particular “holiday”. The amount of time most of us put into our special decorating is significant so why not design it in such a way that you can leave it and enjoy it for a few months rather than just a few weeks? This is especially rewarding in the winter. Winter months are long, cold, dark and sometimes a bit dreary. Why not incorporate more “wintry” themes that can lighten and brighten those winter days. I leave many of my “Christmas” decorations up at least until Valentine’s day. That way when I get home and it’s dark at 4:30-5:00, I can plug lights in on the trees and light candles that reflect off of the abundance of reflective surfaces I use in my decor at this time of year. It really does soften the harshness of winter. Not only that, it allows me to do post-holiday entertaining, when every one’s schedule is much less full, and still enjoy the festive feeling! Many times I do an open house in January and a Valentine dinner in February. My guests used to be surprised to see the trees still up and all but now they look forward to it and many have adopted the same practice!
