Don’t forget your bedrooms when you decorate for Christmas! You can go big or decorate with just a few small touches but don’t forget to give them a little Christmas cheer! Today I have some great tips to decorate your bedrooms for Christmas.
I like to start with my bed! For the longest time, I’ve dreamed of having bedding that reflects the Christmas season. A couple years ago I found a beautiful quilt and shams on sale and grabbed them up!
Look for bedding that you can use all holiday season or even on different beds.
Choosing a solid Christmas color will give a hint to the season but won’t scream CHRISTMAS and could be used all winter long!
The same with pillows. I chose faux fur pillows to go with the red velvet pillow shams. I can use them in any other room all winter!
I also love decorating my bed with greens. This bedroom has a four poster bed so I strung a garland of cedar around the bed.
The garland was attached to the post with a pretty plaid ribbon.
Even if you don’t have a four-poster bed to hang garland why not put a tad of greenery somewhere on or near your bed.
- a small wreath to or above your headboard
- a garland across your headboard
- a spray of greens tied around the lamps on either side of your bed
- a little arrangement of greens on your bedside table
And speaking of a little arrangement, I added one to the table in the guest room.
The red berries work with the red bedding! I have a clear plastic box filled with all kinds of berries I’ve collected over the years!
And don’t you love this little footed silver dish? Perfect for a few greens!
This bedroom holds a family treasure. The only thing I have from my father’s side of the family is this white ironstone plate. I embellished it with a preserved boxwood wreath.
Think about adding a little wreath to a mirror or picture or art you have hanging in your bedrooms. Better yet, hang little wreaths from coordinating ribbon from the inside of each window. So so pretty!
Every bedroom deserves a tree. I have a little tree that I keep in the guest room closet and pull out every year.
It’s a bit of a Charlie Brown, tree but aren’t they darling? No baubles or balls… just a ribbon at the top.
I am a huge fan of bed trays. They are prime real estate to decorate! I added a festive lantern to the bed tray. When guest use this room I put the lantern by their door. It’s so pretty to see the glow of a candle to lead them to their room! I use a battery operated candle with a timer, of course!
Here are a few other things you might want to add to a Christmas bedroom…
- a string of lights
- Christmas books
- little boxes wrapped up for Christmas
- Christmas magazines
- ribbons, ribbons, ribbons
- a bowl of pinecones or Christmas balls
- a Christmas sign
- a little pitcher filled with candy canes
- Christmas potpourri in a bowl
- ornaments hung on ribbons on the window
- a pair of boots filled with Christmas greens
You don’t have to do a lot to bring Christmas to all your bedrooms. Just a little nod to the season in each room will make it feel special and Ho Ho Holiday!!!!
