A virtual Christmas celebration? It’s not as sad as you think! We know this holiday season is different because most of us can’t fly home without the fear and risk of getting sick. We’re choosing to stay apart to prevent coronavirus spread because our priority is to make our celebration as safe as possible.

Even if we’re physically distancing, we can still push through with our holiday plans by going virtual. If you’re still looking for a reason to do something special this season, this is it! Even during a pandemic, do something special for your home—if anything, this is the time when it matters the most. We need to fill our houses with colorful and comforting Christmas memories to lighten up our homes.

You have 2-3 weeks before Christmas and that’s a lot of time to make quick and easy changes to your living space. Here, we’re giving you practical tips to help you prepare your home for a virtual Christmas celebration.

Decorate!

We gave up a lot of traditions because of the pandemic but we get to keep this holiday ritual—putting up Christmas decorations. Redecorating is the easiest way to make your home look festive. You can buy new ones or dust off your old sentimental ornaments.

Bringing Back the Colors of Christmas

Remember that you’ll be showing off these Christmas updates to your virtual guests so they will be looking at their small screens. Go bold with your decorations.  The louder, the better! To make your holiday accessories pop, we recommend that you choose decorations that have high color contrast with your walls. For example, if you have deep-toned walls, you can choose silver and gold Christmas accessories. On the other hand, if you have a neutral color scheme in your home, you have more freedom to go the classic route with red, green, and gold furnishings.
