PANDEMIC HOLIDAYS: DECOR IDEAS FOR A 2020 STYLE CELEBRATION
Are you thinking what we’re thinking? 2020 has sucked in many ways. Yet, we’re still here and for that we are grateful. We’re also grateful for the upcoming holidays, maybe even more so this year. As Natasha Burton says in a Healthline article:
“It’s so easy to focus on what we can’t do right now. But many aspects of the holidays can still happen just as they always have.
You can still deck out your house for Halloween and carve pumpkins. You can make your great-grandmother’s corn casserole for Thanksgiving or build gingerbread houses. (Great way to use up all that leftover Halloween candy, right?)
You can send cards and sweets to family to celebrate Diwali. You can dust off the menorah and unwrap all your beloved Christmas ornaments. And, you can definitely drive around town and look at everyone else’s holiday decorations. (Don’t forget the hot cocoa!)
Stay positive by getting really excited about all the things you can still do and put your energy into them.”
So, that’s what we’re gonna do. Are you with us? Good!
Here are 5 fun 2020 Holiday decorating ideas:

DIY Double Duty
Sew, paint, glue, draw, snip. Get crafty with your holiday decor. Implement a DIY theme like the farmhouse inspired room below and get busy. Not only will your room look holiday ready, it’ll give you (and the kids) something fun to do.

Go Eco-Friendly Green
Using green elements to decorate helps the environment and sparks your creativity. Finding them gets you outdoors (safely!)

Don’t you just love a door with a pretty wreath? We’ve seen them made from holiday lights, candy canes, greeting cards, gift wrapping, and pompoms, but marshmallows? How cute is that?

Finally, while you may feel like decorating, we completely understand if you’re too exhausted. We feel ya. So maybe opt for a minimalist approach? Tree sprigs in a starkly stunning vase will do the trick.
