Nursery Decorating Ideas For Thanksgiving & Christmas
Fall is already in full swing, which means the most exciting time of year is right around the corner: the holidays! You've mentally mapped out where everyone is sitting for Thanksgiving and where the tree is going for Christmas. Now all you have to do is decide how to decorate the baby's nursery. Putting up a few festive decorations is a fun way to introduce your baby to the holidays and get them excited about what's to come. Whether you go all out with a winter wonderland or keep it small and simple, here are five nursery decorating ideas for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Festive Fall Favorites
It's tradition for many families to gather for the big game on Thanksgiving Day. Deck the nursery out with plenty of NFL decorations that support your favorite team. Someday it might be your child's favorite team too. Mix football memorabilia with home accents such as blankets and curtains that show-off classic fall colors for a fun holiday display that doesn't take too much time or effort. It also looks great through the Christmas season, when football is still going strong and the colors complement your winter theme.
You can also have older siblings chip in with the decorating by encouraging them to create DIY projects for the nursery. They'll have a blast letting their imaginations run wild, and will be proud that they were able to help the adults create a fun display for their littlest family member. Gather materials for the kids to make popular handprint turkeys for Thanksgiving, or just colorful construction paper to make festive garlands and wreaths for Christmas. Let them help put everything up for long-lasting memories and for the baby to see how the season brings everyone together.
Build a small bookshelf for the nursery. Not only does it add a completely new dimension to the space, it also encourages an early love of reading. Fill shelves with picture books featuring Christmas classics or easy readers that teach the importance of Thanksgiving. As the holidays get closer, ask family and friends to donate used books to the nursery's bookshelf, so that you and your little one have a plethora of bedtime stories to share all season long and for the year ahead.
You don't need to make wholescale changes to your baby's nursery for a fun and festive holiday look. Sometimes all that's needed is a dash of color or an eye-catching pattern that transitions nicely between the major holidays. Look for items in solid colors that complement the time of year or make something for them out of themed fabric that coordinates with the rest of your holiday look around the house.
Give your little one the chance to enjoy his or her new decor as much as you do. Place items around the room that keep them stimulated, comfort them and put a smile on their face, such as a plush turkey, pilgrim figurines or a Christmas mobile with characters like Santa Claus, Rudolph and all the reindeer. Just remember to keep any items that present a choking hazard out of baby's reach.
