Staircase Decoration Ideas for the Holidays
Thanksgiving is in the coming week and many of us want to find a way to spruce up our surroundings to get in the holiday mood. Setting the tone for the holidays starts by transforming your work or living space into a haven for holiday spirit. These beautiful ideas can transform your staircase and make guests wonder what be upstairs.
Fresh Green Flare
When trying to bring a bright and vibrant holiday feeling to your space, avoid artificial plastic trees and fake branches. Nothing weighs down a room more than the heavy and dull colors of synthetic plants. Instead, use traditional evergreen boughs layered with bells of Ireland to add a two-dimensional pop of green to your railings. Hold greenery in place with large red ribbons for a classic red and green holiday scene.
Berry and Bright
When looking for a fun way to spruce up your banisters, get creative with a handmade garland. Intertwine evergreens with sprigs of pepperberries for a festive and natural looking holiday display. Incorporate childhood memories by hanging holiday stockings down the railing to add a homey final touch.
A Hospitable Holiday Welcome
The pineapple is a historic symbol of hospitality dating back to the early days of early America. In the history of the American colonies, sea captains returning home from long voyages would display a pineapple on the fence post outside their home to mark a safe return home and welcome visitors for food and conversation. Welcome your holiday guests with an eye catching pineapple adornment atop your stair posts. This symbol of hospitality adds a splash of tropical color and serves as a great conversation starter.
Bundles of Joy
Unlike the typical rope garland you see on every staircase during the holiday season, this new approach to staircase decoration takes bundles of greenery and elevates them to a sophisticated level. Using a natural birch branch to form the spine of the bundle, add dogwood twigs to create a full green body. You can make beautiful green bundles tied with twine or velvet ribbon for a fresh and custom decoration. Evenly space bundles down the railing to create a bright and joyous holiday display.
