Once the Thanksgiving dinner has been eaten, the pumpkin pie has been enjoyed, and the dishes have been cleared away, it’s time to begin thinking about Christmas. One simple way to start decorating your home for the holidays is to change out the hand towels, bath towels, and guest bathroom towels in all of your bathrooms.

By replacing your daily linens in your bathrooms with festive, decorative towels, you can instantly change the mood of the room. Start with a color scheme you’d like to focus on, then decide on the designs or embroidered pictures you’d like on the towels. After the towels are in place, adding any Christmas decorations or candles around the bathroom will finish that holiday look.

December can be such a busy time for everyone with family get-togethers, office parties, children’s plays, and other activities. When you decorate your bathroom with holiday towels, you’ve started your Christmas preparations in a simple and fun way. Now you can enjoy the rest of the season and truly get into the holiday spirit.

There’s nothing quite like a house decorated for the holidays. But if, like most people, you are watching your pennies this holiday season, there’s still a way you can enjoy some new decor without busting your budget.

If you don’t already have one, purchase a shallow glass bowl from your local discount store. Stack Christmas balls inside for an instant boost of holiday cheer. For extra elegance, coordinate the color of the balls with your room. Can’t find one with a pattern you like? Purchase plain ones, some craft glue and glitter. Paint the glue on in stripes, polka dots or all over then poor the glitter on top (be sure to lay out some old newspaper on your table first).

If you have a straight vase, tie peppermint sticks around it with a red ribbon for a bit of holiday flair.

Purchase a few Christmas-themed hand towels to display in your kitchen. For your bathroom, some whimsical holiday towels with gingerbread men are a nice and surprising touch for guests.

With touches like these, it’s easy to give every room in your home a holiday feel without breaking the bank.
