The most exciting part of Christmas for a family is undoubtedly the Christmas decoration.

Essences of different cultures get mixed up in the process and leave their traces in Christmas decorations; which is why we see different themes in decorations. But traditional Christmas decorations call for a perfect traditional Christmas tree, small bulbs of vibrant colors hanging from it and gifts garnishing its bark.
Christmas decorations consist of several parts and each part requires different kinds of decorations — the decoration for living space is not the same for patio decoration just like garden decoration cannot be same as bedroom decoration. If you are feeling traditional this Christmas, you might want to try this guide for decorating your living space and enjoy Christmas to the full extent with your family and friends.
On decorating the living room
A Christmas tree must be the centre of attraction for Christmas decorations of a living room. If you want to choose a particular theme for a living room that will fit your Christmas tree perfectly, Irish theme is a beautiful traditional theme to go with that ornaments your tree with a rich traditional look. You can choose one that will suit the size of your living room from the nearby market. In markets, there are usually a large collection of trees available to choose from. You can go with an artificial one or a real tree, depending on your choice.
The tree definitely is a quintessential part of your living room Christmas decoration, but you cannot just put up a tree without decorating the tree properly. Decorating the tree is very easy;
• You can simply decorate it with colorful beads and lights to attribute Christmas vibes to it. Beads wrapped in sparkly paper add a classy and traditional feel to the Christmas tree.
• If beads hanging from a colorful strings wrapped around the tree seems to be too simple for you, you can go with colorful lights hanging from a string that will give different kind of beauty to your tree.
• You can go for home-made stars, dough and buttons etc. These are also used instead of simple beads or ball of lights. You can make your decorating items at home and ornament your tree.
• You must add something to the top. A beautiful star or a big red bead might do the trick of making your tree look complete.
• The bottom is also not to be left out; you should add glitter or sparkles on the gifts heaped around the bottom of the tree to add a finish touch to your tree decoration.
With the tree completed, you can decorate the rest of living room with red and white, as those are the most traditional Christmas colors. Since the tree plays the most important role in this decoration, it will be great if it is placed in the middle of the room and strings of lights go to corners from it lighting up the whole room with a festive mood.
