Top ways to prepare the home for the holidays

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now it's time for people to start planning for yet another important time of year, Christmas and Hanukkah. If you're feeling less than in the spirit to start decorating the home, a few ideas may help you get out of your rut.

1. Let there be light
A fabulous way to get in the mood for holiday decorating is to create a winter wonderland in your front yard. Grab the old Christmas lights and start stringing them on your trees or bushes or even in your flower boxes to enhance the area.

2. Add garlands and wreaths
There is perhaps nothing better than the smell of fresh pine and evergreen and this scent can be brought into your home with wreaths or garlands. Add pops of Christmas spirit in the house by wrapping greens up the banister on your stairs and have the kids make cranberry strands to add a touch of red to the look.

3. Bring in Christmas flowers
One of the easiest ways to enhance the holiday cheer in your home is to purchase Christmas florals. An arrangement like Teleflora's Candlelit Christmas Centerpiece is sure to add some warmth to any room in your house. The collection of red amaryllis and red roses sparkle against the fragrant noble fir and golden, shimmering pine cones.
