Combing Traditional and Non-Traditional Christmas Decorations


When it comes to decorating for the Christmas holiday, many homeowners are combining traditional touches with modern ones. For instance, some homeowners put a candle in each of their windows so people passing by can see the beautiful glow. But, instead of putting a real candle on each window sill, they use a candle with an LED bulb for a flame. Consider some other examples of Christmas decorations that combine the traditional with the modern.

A Christmas Wreath

The traditional wreath seen at Christmas time is usually a creation of evergreen branches topped off with a red ribbon or bow. Homeowners who like this wreath, but want to give it some modern flair may attach some colorful silk flowers to it. Or, they may decorate the wreath with gold or silver glitter and attach some bells to it. These modern touches make a traditional wreath a little more festive for guests arriving at the door to celebrate the season.

Ornaments on a Christmas Tree

Traditional ornaments for a Christmas tree include silver and gold balls, tinsel and a popcorn garland. Someone who wants to make a tree look more modern may put a lot of homemade ornaments on the tree. For instance, a child may make several star-shaped ornaments that feature a photo of each family member. Or, there may be homemade ornaments in the shape of a snowman, a sled, a dove and an icicle. Traditional decorations on a tree can look all the more appealing with a few modern ornaments added to the mix. Balsam Hill is one example of a place that offers Christmas trees that add to the warmth of the season.

Christmas Lights

Traditionally, Christmas lights are hung on the gutters of a home and around the front door. But, there are other non-traditional places to put a beautiful string of lights. For example, some people like to put Christmas lights on a fence around their home or on a single gate. Other homeowners like to hang Christmas lights on the inside of their windows. This way the lights can be enjoyed by people who are both inside and outside of the house.

Finally, there is no one, correct way to decorate for Christmas. Families can put their own stamp on Christmas décor to add to the enjoyment of the season.
