Tips for Top Notch Holiday Decor

As seen on Fox & Friends – Sunday, November 27, 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There’s nothing like sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter day admiring the holiday decorations. But actually doing the decorating can less than enjoyable…especially if you’re working with the wrong tools for the job. Here are some of our favorite holiday décor and products to make decorating faster, easier & safer!

Frontgate is known for their amazing, designer holiday décor, their luxury home goods and outdoor furniture. Today they’ve graciously invited us into the Atlanta Flagship Store to have an amazing holiday backdrop! We are in love with so many of their holiday decor and gifts…but the top of our list has to be the Color-Changing Oxford Fir Trees.

This lush evergreen and its majestic light show create the ultimate Christmas centerpiece. In the glow of up to 2,000 bulbs in various styles, select warm white or multicolor lights, or enjoy two color-changing settings. All trees come pre-lit with hand-strung lights that are ready to use once assembled. All of their 7-1/2-foot and larger trees have energy-efficient, long-lasting LED – up to 10,000 hours!

The trees are also impressively realistic, down to the budding needles and nuanced color. Frontgate was the first to create foliage molds using branches and tips found in nature, mimicking their natural shade and texture, and we continue to do it best. Plus with an easy one-cord, it assembles in under 3 minutes!

Frontgate has  20 Tree Varieties, in two silhouettes (Slim and Full) – and multiple heights up to 15’, and All Frontgate trees come with a limited three-year warranty.

And of course you can’t overlook their classic best-selling greenery collection, Christmas Cheer. Comprised of realistic foliage, pine cones and red berries, lush, realistic sprays of pine and holly, and ornamented with gold-lined red velvet ribbon, this collection is the definition of iconic – and timeless – holiday decor! The Christmas Cheer collection includes wreaths, garlands, swags and topiaries/urn fillers.

The expansive range of swags includes Teardrop, Staircase, Doorframe, Chair Back and Horizontal Window. So it truly has something to spruce up every corner of your home. You can even buy the bows independently to spread the cheer beyond just greenery. Each piece is carefully crafted and durably designed, so it will create special celebrations season after season.

There is just no substitute for that warm fire vibe and that’s where the Halo Fire Torch comes in handy!

These beautiful torches are handmade in the USA and use mesmerizing vortex technology to create resort style fire features for your backyard or patio…or even indoors with their brand new, indoor-smokeless LOTUS TABLE TORCH LAMP!

With the top of the glass being more open like a flower, Lotus is specifically made to run on Halo Fire’s  NO SMOKE Fuel which is 100% smoke free just like name says so you can safely use it indoors. It’s perfect for holiday dinner parties, weddings, backyard shindigs or personal relaxation. Set the Lotus in the middle of a table and instantly create a calming and cozy ambience.

No holiday decorating would be complete without perfectly wrapped presents! Turn your gifts into works of art fit for display along with your holiday décor using the right tools for the job. We love using Scotch Gift-Wrap Tape because it has a satin finish that disappears flawlessly on most wrapping papers to give your gifts that smooth, finished look.

Scotch Brand also offers a wide range of classic tapes for crafting, decorating, and more to get your home holiday-ready. Available at most major retailers. Click here to purchase on Amazon.

One of our favorite decorations in our house is battery powered candles in each of the windows. Up until this year we struggled with the best way to safely store batteries. We were scrambling around in either a cardboard box or plastic bags, which is super frustrating. Plus, when batteries are stored touching each other, they can drain each other’s energy or even start a fire!

That’s why we were excited to find battery storage and organization from Storacell. This magnetic battery caddy keeps our holiday batteries organized and our house safer.

The unique, compact, and lightweight caddies come in a variety of colors and sizes for most popular batteires. They even have a glow in the dark option that lasts for 6-8 hours. Storacell is perfect for traveling, camping, boating, emergency services and home organization. The magnetic parts hold in the batteries so there’s no need for a locking tab at the top.
