Seasonal Decorations _ For those of you that desire to have your house decorated for each season, here a couple tips. Rather than decorate everywhere with everything possible, choose a few areas to keep festive for the seasons. This cuts down on storage needs and overall work. This could be a calendar area that is designed differently each month, or a shelf on the wall with craft items. Changing the clothing of a stuffed animal to reflect the seasons is a nice, safe way to decorate if you have little ones at home. One way to save money and space is to reuse what you have. Sometimes what may be considered as a very season_specific decoration can be adjusted to fit other seasons as well. Retooling your wreath is one way to save on space: instead of having a wreath for every occasion, use one wreath base and change out its decorations.
Don't forget that not every bouquet has to be a masterpiece. The important thing is to have fun, experiment, and use your creativity. You'll find lots of inspiration in magazines, on web sites, and in nature. Just find some simple looks you like, and try duplicating them at home. Over time, you'll get more confident and creative, and who knows? You may find it's a great way to make very personalized gifts. So, pick up some flowers today, and make a beautiful bouquet. You might discover a talent that's ready to bloom in you.
