Get a Jumpstart on Holiday Decorating!

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Yes – the holiday season is almost upon us and it’s the time of year where we all pull out boxes of decorations to take inventory of what survived from last year and what we need to add to the list for this year. It’s a great idea to start your decorating early because it allows you to stay organized, stick to a plan and have time to enjoy the season a little more.

Use Indian summer to your advantage:

One of the best things about getting a jumpstart on holiday decorating is utilizing the weather. Use a warmer-than-usual fall weekend to get your outdoor holiday decorating organized and installed. You won’t be struggling in the cold and you’ll be the first house on the block with a festive feel!

Pick the perfect theme:


Sticking to a holiday theme can be a great way to stay organized while decorating – and today there are more than enough themes to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites!

This fun theme is the perfect way to get longevity out of your decorations. Because your décor isn’t Christmas-focused you can leave it up through the end of winter if you choose. Try using a color palette of blues and whites or whites and reds for inspiration to get started.

This unique theme is stylish and fun. Capture a sophisticated look with vintage holiday postcards or adorable pocket watch tree ornaments.

This go-to favorite color scheme for the holidays is a classic. It’s versatile and fun, and there’s no denying Christmas is around the corner when you see these colors highlighting your home. There’s plenty of ways to play this theme modern, traditional or even somewhere in the middle.

Start spreading the cheer early!

While you’re getting a jumpstart on your holiday decorating, why not get a jumpstart on other holiday to-do’s like sending Christmas Cards or Christmas Ecards. Sending a Season’s Greetings Ecard is a great way to let friends and family know it’s time to get in the spirit!

And now that your home is starting to take shape for the holidays, bring the same Christmas enthusiasm to work. Blue Mountain offers FREE downloadable calendar desktops that will put your holiday spirit on display at home or at the office.
