We’ve all been there: Christmas comes and goes, but we can’t bring ourselves to take down our holiday decorations. Soon enough, it’s April and you realize you still have some of your Christmas decorations on display. While many people think holiday decorations shouldn’t be displayed past Christmas, I’m here to tell you that you can get away with keeping your Christmas decorations up. Well, you can get away with keeping some of them.
- Interior Lights
Take a look through any home portion of online stores like Urban Outfitters and Target. You will most likely see a few rooms decorated with Christmas lights, especially white Christmas lights. In recent years, Christmas lights have become a popular decoration for bedrooms and living rooms. They seem to add a little more light to a room and a little bit of flare. So, don’t jump at the opportunity to tear down the Christmas lights in your living room and bedroom, especially if they match with your décor.
Most people place a special Christmas wreath on their door for the holidays. Since wreaths are normal decorations for doors (especially front doors), you can definitely get away with leaving your holiday wreath hanging for a little bit longer. If you don’t feel like dismantling your entire wreath when spring finally rolls around, you could always change the color scheme and decorations on your wreath.
Garland is another decoration that typically flows seamlessly with interior and exterior areas of your home. That being said, keep your garland wrapped around your railings for a little bit longer. Like your wreaths, you could always switch the color scheme and decorations in your garlands to make them more appropriate for warmer seasons.
- Mini Trees
If you placed mini trees throughout your home or on your doorstep, or placed a bare mini tree in your home, then you should definitely keep them up past Christmas. Typically, mini trees are made to be displayed throughout the year. So take down any ornaments and red and green decorations, and leave the bare mini trees up to liven your up throughout the year.
- Table Sets
Holiday table sets take a lot of creativity, time, money, and effort to create. So, it’s completely understandable when Christmas passes and you dread putting away your table set. The good news is: you don’t have to put away your table set. Instead, use it for a little bit longer. This is especially relevant to people who have a monochromatic table set that barely incorporates classic Christmas designs or colors.
