Part of creating a welcoming and special home is decorating for the holidays. I always say that decorating your home is about moments and the “stuff” we put in our homes help make the moments happen! Thinking back on my childhood I can’t help but feel grateful to my mom for always making everything (especially during the holidays) feel so special. I didn’t grow up in a super fancy high-end home….but she created memories where memories otherwise wouldn’t have been ~ just by decorating and make things special for each season and holiday. She commemorated and elevated our lives through décor. So here are my top 3 reasons why decorating for the holidays is not a frivolous shallow act….but an act of complete love!
I love this quote by Brene Brown.
But I would add that it’s up to us to set the stage to allow trust, gratitude inspiration and faith to happen and we can use our homes to do just that!
I know there are probably a few people out there saying “Whatever, decorating is frivolous and fluffy and a waste of time and money!” And of course, everyone is free to live their life however they think is best, but let me just say you could be missing out on a lot of life’s “goodies” by choosing to not make these moments significant. So, I encourage you to have some fun and get into the spirit of the holiday season upon us!!
