Building a collection of seasonal décor — it can be a daunting task for anyone to take on!

Each holiday seems to get more and more frantic, and the endless amount of décor options seem to keep growing as well!l! With Christmas being the grandest of all holidays, it can be hard to know where to start.

I’ve been blessed with what I call, “hand-me-down holidays.” Over the past eight years, I’ve been stuck at a crossroads. Since I travel to the East Coast every Christmas, it really doesn’t make sense to decorate — but it’s the holidays, and with so many décor options, it’s been hard to walk away from it all.

Luckily, I have a mother who offloads her decorations (including a tree). Every year, I unpack the mishmash of decorations and spend an afternoon decorating. Even though we only enjoy it for 10 days or so, it’s so warm and relaxing to celebrate the season leading up to our trip home, where the holidays really start.

This year, when I was invited to celebrate the holidays with the new Sweet Noel Holiday Collection at Lowe’s, it was an easy yes. No more barren tree; no more mismatched decorations. I’ll finally have a full collection that I could love for years to come!

Here are my tips for making a Sweet Noel Christmas for your home.


Play around with your Christmas colour palette

Sweet Noel was right for my family, as it checks all the boxes — fun for kids, but mature for grownups with its vintage look and feel.

It’s also a collection that I could change in the future. By playing around with Sweet Noel’s colour palette, I could keep staple holiday colours — red, green, and silver — and simply swap out blue to instantly create a new collection if I want to shake things up in a few years.


Freshen up your space with evergreen Christmas trees and garlands

The grandest piece to this collection was the addition of a new tree to our house. Lowe’s has a great selection of artificial Christmas trees, which fit all house sizes. Last year’s tree was six feet tall, and propped up on a box to give the illusion of height. I chose the 7-foot pre-lit Colorado Spruce since I knew it would fit my height requirements, although it was narrower than others.

We also extended evergreens into our staircase with a pre-lit spruce garland. Since we have a small house, this tiny addition made a big impact, giving us more green space to decorate.


Have a ball adding colourful ornaments and decorations

Speaking of decorations, this is where things got fun!

I had so much fun picking from the array of Sweet Noel’s retro-inspired decorations and matching them with timeless classics like ball ornaments. A little someone also enjoyed the Disney decorations that Lowe’s has to offer!


Extra ideas to personalize and plan ahead

Top 3 Tips: Sweet Noel Christmas Decorations

When shopping for your holiday décor, here are my top three tips that will help along the journey:

1. Think long term: Committing to a new tree isn’t something that we do every year. You want a tree that will last for years to come — a coloured tree might be fun for now, but will you really love it next year? Possibly not.

2. Take inventory: Look at what you have kicking around. I was in desperate need of a new collection, but I did have items that I was able to use with my Sweet Noel theme. A handful of silver glitter ball ornaments and pre-lit berry garland really helped to complete the look.

3. Make adjustments: Decorations come pre-strung with simple ties so that you can just pop them on the tree. I ended up removing all the ties and using the wire hooks. This allowed me to put the decorations exactly where I wanted on the tree by wrapping the wire on the branch. It also helps when little fingers try to play with these decorations.

This is our first Christmas as a family of four, and although we’re traveling back East, I’m thankful that Lowe’s helped us have a complete, stylish look for the days that we spend at home to celebrate!
