Easy Ways to Decorate Your Home for the Holiday Season

Easy Ways to Decorate Your Home for the Holiday Season

The holidays are fast approaching along with cooler weather, the chance to settle in while getting comfy and cozy indoors. It is also the time of year where we can pull our holiday decorations out of storage and plan an evening or weekend turning our home into a seasonally acceptable wonderland.

Below, we have a few easy ways you can decorate your home for the upcoming holiday season.

Snowy Votives

If you have extra candles, mason jars, or vases laying around, then you have the beginning items you need to create some wintry décor for the home. Grab a bag of Epsom salt you undoubtedly have laying around and pour some into the container of your choice. 

You can then grab those votive candles and push them into the salt, so they are snug and secure. Once lit, you will have a beautiful warm glow. It makes the perfect décor for a coffee table or any other counter or table surface in the home.

Place Cards

Having a dinner party to celebrate the holidays? Maybe you have a few guests who will be staying over. You can make personalized place cards to make your guest feel more at home. When it comes time to clear out a space for them to stay, you can move the items into your storage unit and then add a few personal touches to the space, so it feels like you spent time preparing for their visit instead of it being just an afterthought.

Calligraphy place cards or themed cards are great for any tablescape and will make them feel as if they have a special place at the table. If you have more than one guest and guest room, you can create cards for the doors, so they know which room is meant for them.


What holiday décor would be complete without a few pinecones? These ideas are endless and the best part? They are easy to do and very affordable. Pinecones placed in a bowl make a great centerpiece, or you can use them to create a beautiful wreath for the front door. 

Window Décor

Don't leave the windows bare and out in the cold as you decorate. You can take a few of those leftover pine cones and hang them from festive ribbon to add a very holiday-like touch to your windows. 

Create a Star

Want something that will make more of a statement in the home this holiday season? Consider creating a DIY Barnwood star. It will make the perfect addition to your mantle or side table. It is also versatile because you can switch out the ribbon for whatever holiday. 

Storing Your Décor

When the holidays are over, and it is time to safely gather your décor items, you should pack them up nicely and take them to your storage unit in Austin, TX where they will be safe and secure until next year. 

If you need a storage unit, consider contacting Instamove Austin to help find a home for all your décor.

  • “I ended up using InstaMove several times after finding them on Thumbtack, and every single experience was awesome. All of their staff were punctual, hard-working, and professional. The office always worked to accommodate my schedule needs, and they were affordable, even for a non-profit! I can't recommend this company highly enough!”

  • “Awesome experience. Hired InstaMove Austin and they did a great job. I was provided a quote and the movers stayed within the quote. Not like most movers that give you a low quote then you are paying over 100% of the quote when the job is done. Also, per pics below they wrapped all the furniture prior to moving. The other movers have not done that and I have used a lot of movers. A+ service. If you want it done right it is definitely InstaMove Austin. Will definitely use the again.”

Very professional, very nice, worked SUPER fast, and helped us majorly. My sister would of been all day doing the moving by ourselves. Will be using this company again when we move!”

  • “The guys were very friendly. They quoted us 2 guys but showed up with 3- only charging us for 2 guys still. They took care of our belongings and knocked out everything super quick. I would definitely recommend this moving service to friends and family in the future.”
