Green Holiday Decorating Tips

To the Jingle Bells Tune: “Waste, waste, waste. Spend, spend, spend. Time to waste and spend!” That seems to be the theme for the holiday season. But it doesn’t have to be. The holidays can be just as vibrant, pretty and inviting as always but it all can be done cheaper and greener. To help you deck the halls the eco way, check out these green holiday decorating tips!

  • Natural Decor & Scents – Pine cones, tree trimmings, baked goods and seasonal produce (cranberries, gourds, etc) all give the “look” of the holidays without having to buy a bunch of holiday decorations. Simmer cloves and ginger instead of burning candles and use what nature provides to accent tablescapes and rooms around the house. Rosemary, thyme and sage are all evergreen, wonderfully fragrant and can be used to season recipes all year long. Other fragrant herbs include basil, chamomile, lavender and mint.

  • Reusable, not disposable – Paper holiday napkins, placemats and tablecloths offer convenience, but waste resources. Invest in holiday dishes, glassware and cloth napkins that you use every year. They will be a great part of your tradition and can be gifted to your children as well.
  • LED - The eco-friendly way to light up the holidays! These lights can withstand all kinds of weather and are long lasting and durable as well. When compared to other lights, they are reasonably priced and come in all the different shapes, colors, and sizes to choose from.
  • Last year’s wrapping is this year’s decor - Reuse last year’s holiday items to dress up this year’s celebrations. Cut up old greeting cards to use as gift tags or place cards, or tape the front of old cards to inexpensive, plain-color gift bags. Re-use last year’s ribbons and bows, and frame especially-attractive greeting cards to hang on your walls as holiday accents.
  • Purge & Swap - Find oth...
