There are some great holiday weekends during the summer and we want our homes to look the best if you happen to have a fun get together for the. Here are some great tips to help you decorate for a holiday weekend.
How to Decorate for a Holiday Weekend
From the Fourth of July to Labor Day and Memorial Day, we have a plethora of holidays to enjoy in the U.S.A. We also love to celebrate these holidays, whether it’s a fun day on the lake or a bash in our backyards.
Like any good host would do, you want to set up your space with festive décor to add to the environment and create a vibe that is as celebratory as the holiday calls for. The following are some ways you can create a festive atmosphere for the next holiday party you have in mind:
Include gifts for your guests
Party favors can work as both décor and gifts for your guests, making for a lovely experience for all of your guests. Whether you offer Labor Day gifts in the form of flower bouquets or table centerpieces, your investment in your holiday décor could also double as a “souvenir” of the occasion.
When using flower bouquets as décor, try to find the colors that are often used in that holiday’s theme, like red, white, and blue for Independence Day or Memorial Day, or orange and yellow for holidays like Halloween or Thanksgiving.
Set up lights in your backyard
Whether you switch out lights for every holiday occasion or you use the same ones for every event, lights in your backyard can be a great way to make it feel festive for any occasion you have in mind. If you do like to switch out your lights, consider using color themes to add to the whole party theme, whatever the holiday may be.
To take light decorations a step further, consider hanging holiday lanterns that are in theme with the specific holiday you’re celebrating.
Use front yard decorations
Halloween is a great holiday for setting up front yard decorations, but you can add décor to your yard for any holiday. Whether you set up flags in your front yard for Independence Day or use pumpkin décor for Thanksgiving, decorating your front yard can be a fun thing to do, especially if your neighborhood loves to have fun with their front yard décor for the holidays.
Create a holiday wreath
Regardless of what the holiday may be, you can always create a beautiful wreath for your front door, no matter what you may be celebrating. From a heart-shaped wreath for Valentine’s Day to a brown and orange wreath to ring in the holidays to be celebrated in autumn, there are plenty of DIY wreaths you can make for any occasion. If you don’t feel talented in the craft department, you could easily find wreaths online for your door.
Use natural items for earthy decor
From leaves to wreaths to flowers, vines, and twigs, you can easily forage in a local forest for your decorations. If you’re a crafty person, you can easily create lovely decorations for any occasion, whether you’re celebrating the changing of seasons or simply like the bohemian feel of natural-looking decorations.
Bouquets of flowers or even cacti can be a great way to adorn your table where your guests will have holiday dinners. There’s no reason why you have to use store-bought décor.
Whatever holiday you’re celebrating next, you can easily come up with décor for the holiday, even if you do it differently than everyone else. From flowers to wreaths to special lights, there are so many ways you can make your holiday event a beautiful one that will be remembered by all of your guests for many months to come.
If you’re crafty, DIY projects could be the best option for you, or you could shop around at local stores for holiday décor you’d love to display.
