5 Festive Ways You Can Decorate Your Windows and Home for the Holidays


The holiday season is here! As you plan your decorations for the season, don't forget to include one of your home's most attractive features - the windows! Giving your windows a festive makeover is a quick and easy way to add a little more holiday magic inside and outside your home. Here are five great ideas to get you started. 

1. Velvet drapes - Velvet drapes inside your home around the holidays and throughout the winter add a warm and regal touch as soft velvet flows from floor to ceiling. Framing your windows when open or guarding against cold weather when closed, velvet drapes are a sophisticated touch to your interior decor that is both beautiful and functional. 

2. Garlands - Garlands can be made up of almost anything and can be hung across windows or around. Create a garland from cording and pinecones for a simple natural look or get the children involved and create cut paper garlands together. Use pre-made evergreen garlands to frame your window inside or out or try stringing cranberries for a simple but festive look. 

3. Ornaments - Hang extra ornaments inside your windows in place of your usual window covering. Use an existing curtain rod and hang the ornaments at different heights using string or fishing line. Try hanging star silhouettes instead of ornaments for a different look. 

4. Holiday greenery - Use holiday greenery inside and outside your windows for a quick and easy decorator's touch. Wreaths large and small are easy to find or make using real or faux materials. Hang large wreaths outside your windows with thick red ribbons or hang one or more smaller wreaths inside your windows to frame your outside views. Try evergreen or holly branches or a mix of both. Create a kissing ball from evergreen branches and mistletoe or try tucking evergreen twigs around the base of a candle. The opportunities to use holiday greenery in your decor are endless. 

5. Window boxes - Window boxes outside your home are a beautiful touch that can be used year round. For the holiday season, fill them with red and green holly or evergreen branches. Tie them up with ribbons or top off with gold ornaments. Add some twinkling lights to warm the look outside at night. 


Whatever decorations you choose, make the most of your beautiful windows inside and out this holiday season. Follow us on social media for more ideas as you bring the magic of the holidays to your home!

If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
