Decorating for Christmas
Pick out the perfect tree

Decorating the tree
Decorate your tree with tinsel, ornaments, and lights as you see fit.
Deck the halls
Decorate your house with garlands, lights, and other decor to match the theme of your tree.
Hang up stockings
Stockings are an integral part of Christmas. Buy one for each member of the family or make them yourself to hang on the mantel.
Decorate the outdoors
Take the decor outside with wreaths, swags, door hangers, topiaries, planters, and outdoor displays.
