Start with our holiday decorating tips that help you transition your Thanksgiving decor into the Christmas season in simple ways, such as adding more color or natural elements, using both fresh and faux elements in your display, and more. Simplify your Christmas season with our easy ways to set the holiday mood, from crafting a cute centerpiece to keeping a holiday scrapbook and starting a holiday tradition. Stay sane with our holiday decorating planner, a six-week planning guide to making your home festive a little bit at a time. Remember to relax, too.
