Festive decor ideas to deck out your home in time for the holidays

Tips & Tricks


There’s nothing like festive decorations around your home to get you into the holiday spirit. Whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist, dressing up your home in holiday decor can be exciting. And, while you might still have festive decor pieces from the previous year, it’s a lot more fun to work with fresh decor items. 

You don’t have to buy all new items, only a few new trendy pieces that you can use with your old stash. This doesn’t have to be a daunting and expensive venture. Luckily, there are many home stores in Cape Town where you can purchase quality and versatile decor items at affordable prices.
