Enlist the family to help create a few simple homemade decorations. Browse the Internet or check out some books from the library for inspiration and ideas.
Simple Wreath and Bow
A plain, wreath of greenery with a red bow accent is both classic and classy. Skip the overloaded wreaths full of decorations and go with the simple, green wreath.
Winterberries are certainly a classic part of Christmas decorating. Add a winterberry garland on a railing or over a doorway for a rustic touch that brings back thoughts of Christmases past.
What is more classic than simple red and white candy canes? A very easy way to decorate with candy canes is to simply buy a box or two of peppermint candy canes and hang them on the tree. Put a few in a red glass and set on the kitchen table for an easy centerpiece. Keep plenty of candy canes on hand since family members and guests may grab one here and there.
