Jillian’s VIDEO Tips For Less Holiday Stress
Below find video of Jillian’s candid and honest tips for battling holiday decorating fatigue!
Tip 1: Give Yourself a Cut-Off Date
Time is never your friend during the holidays, so why fight it but embrace it! Take advantage of all the Design Concierge Services provided by our Design Crew Team. From trimming your free to hanging wreathes to planning your holiday party, our team of professionals can alleviate the stress and save you some time!
Tip 2: Pick a Focal Point or Room
It’s easy to be tempted to decorate every square foot of your home, but the reality is that every family has rooms in their home that tend to the “go to” spots for gatherings and family time, so focus on those! If you can’t resist then think about creating beautiful vignettes with a wreath, a small tabletop tree or a cute holiday throw pillow. Little touches can go a long way to bringing holiday cheer into a space.
Tip 3: Bring the Outdoors Inside
Who doesn’t love the smell of pine or the look of fresh-cut greenery during the holiday season? Be sure to bring that into your home using garlands or small topiary plants. Not only are the beautiful to see, at the end of the season, you can compost or recycle the natural elements.
