“There’s no place like home for the holidays.”  For those of us living in the Piedmont, that means a variety of local Christmas traditions:  The School of the Arts’ The Nutcracker, Tanglewood’s Festival of Lights, Old Salem’s Christmas by Candlelight tours, The Sawtooth School’s   Deck the Halls, Holidays at Reynolda, Christmas at Korner’s Folly, and the Winston-Salem Symphony’s The Messiah.  All of these wonderful celebrations are right here in the Triad area.  December is the month to prepare for holiday guests, parties, and entertaining.

Each year, we have customers calling early to get on our calendar.  We all like to open our doors to family and friends and the first week of December is a great time to start.

For those of you who need inspiration and ideas before you embark on a project, never fear, the designer elves at June DeLugas Interiors are here to help you.

When it comes to Christmas décor and gift ideas, we’ve got you covered.  For a fun way to display Christmas cards, try hanging a wide ribbon in a family room or foyer and use raffia to tie each card to the ribbon.  Integrate your Christmas decorations in with your existing home décor when possible; a red vase, cream plateware, or metallic candlesticks will make a room feel nice and cheery when mixed with a strand of garland and lights.  When wrapping the hostess gift, tie a favorite ornament onto the box (I personally use vintage ornaments).  Everyone will want to see what’s in that box.  For music lovers, give iTune cards with Christmas sounds like A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, or I’ll be Home for Christmas.  A basket of produce from a farmer’s market is always a thoughtful and healthy gift for your guests.  Gift certificates for a massage or personal trainer are great for those who are hard to shop for.  Specialty olive oils or infused vinegars make a nice gift for folks who like to cook.

The designers at June DeLugas Interiors are ready and waiting to help you complete your Christmas décor.  Come see the many beautiful Christmas adornments and inspirations for your home!

Merry Christmas & God Bless!
