Your entryway is the first area or rooms your guests will see once they enter your home, so it’s important to make a good first impression. Aside from keeping the space clean and organized, decorate your entryway by hanging a wreath or a mini Christmas tree. Here are a few ways to welcome your guests during the big holiday:

  • Add Christmas throw pillows and blanket on the bench
  • Decorate your staircase banister with garlands and mini wreaths
  • Hang a jolly Christmas welcome sign on the wall
  • Hang a red scarf and a stocking on one of your coat hooks
  • Hang a wreath on your front door
  • Place a mini Christmas tree
  • Place Christmas lanterns on the ground

Living Room

One of the most important rooms you’ll decorate in your home is the living room. Your guests and family will be gathered in the living room during Christmas. It’s important to decorate every nook and cranny of your living room, but be careful not to overdecorate the space. Here are a few Christmas decor ideas for your living room:

  • Add Christmas throw pillows and blankets
  • Decorate your mantel with garlands
  • Decorate your shelves and console table with bottle brush trees
  • Hang stockings on the chimney
  • Hang wreaths in your windows
  • Make the Christmas tree the star of the living room

Dining Room

Your dining room is the space where your family and guests will gather during dinner. It’s where you’ll share stories and laughs while enjoying the Christmas meal. Decorate the space like it’s an extension of the living room and kitchen.

  • Create a Christmas centerpiece with fresh greens and sparkling Christmas ornaments
  • Decorate the table with a festive table runner
  • Hang mini wreaths on the back of each chair
  • If possible, put a Christmas tree in the corner
  • Light up the room with white candles
  • Make the space cozy with faux sheepskin throws


Of course, our Christmas decor guide includes the kitchen. When decorating your kitchen for the holiday, don’t be afraid to go traditional, modern, or a mix of two styles! It all depends on how you want to add a touch of festive cheer to the heart of the home.

  • Decorate your kitchen windows with wreaths and string lights
  • Fill the jars with cookies and the kitchen counter with yummy Christmas treats
  • Hang jolly Christmas wall signs
  • Place Christmas-themed dish towels


You may not expect to decorate the bathroom with Christmas decorations, but you should never forget this little room. Cheer the space with small Christmas decorations, such as:

  • Light up a Christmas scented candle
  • Decorate shelves and corners with garlands
  • Hang a stocking on one of the towel hooks
  • Hang a Christmas ornament on the bathroom doorknob
  • Hang garlands on the windows
  • Hang mini wreaths over the mirrors
  • Make it fun with Christmas themed toilet paper
  • Place a Christmas hand towel
  • Put candy canes in the toothbrush cup
  • Swap in a Christmas shower curtain


Make your bedroom extra cozy and inviting this holiday season with just a few touches like:

  • Choose a Christmas-themed blanket
  • Decorate your headboard or curtains with Christmas lights
  • Hang a Christmas sign on the wall
  • Hang mini wreaths on your windows
  • Light a holiday scented candle
