Budget Friendly Christmas Decorating Tips

Hello my beautiful friends! For those of you who are new to my blog, welcome and enjoy! The Christmas season is right around the corner……it’s time to start decorating your home for holidays. One of the biggest things for me each year! And probably most expensive. But, this year I made a promise myself I`ll do it on a budget. So, today I`m sharing a few tips how to make your home beautiful with a things you already have or you can get for (almost) free. With a little imagination, you can have it all and your Christmas decorating doesn`t have to break the bank!

Zdravo dragi moji! Ako ste prvi put ovde, dobrodošli, nadam se da ćete uživati. Kao što znate, praznici nam se približavaju velikom brzinom i krajnje je vreme da počnemo da razmišljamo o tome kako ćemo ove godine ukrasiti svoj dom. Za mene je Božićna sezona najlepša ali, ume da bude i najskuplja. Moja kolekcija ukrasa je postala zaista velika i zato sam ove godine obećala sebi da ću se uzdržati od kupovine i da ću koristiti ono što već imam. Upravo sa tom idejom na umu, želim da sa vama podelim par ideja kako da uredite dom za praznike, a da ne "spržite" sve kartice. Dekor o kome ću govoriti se bazira na onome što već imate ili je (skoro) besplatno. 

No.1 Use candles around the home
No.1 Sveće i svećnjaci
Candles are magical for me. They make every corner of your space so special. To make that magical effect in your home, gather together all your candlesticks and candles and arrange them on a mantel, coffee table or dining table, add a few bulbs in a coordination color and your room will look magazine worthy.

Sveće imaju magičnu moć da svaki kutak učine lepšim i tako posebnim. Sakupite sve sveće i svećnjake koje već imate i grupišite ih na kaminu, klub stočiću ili trpezarijskom stolu, dodajte par ukrasnih kugli u odgovarajućoj boji i stvorite prizor vredan stranice magazina.
No. 2 Use fresh evergreen
No.2 Upotrebite sveže zimzelene grane 
Take a walk to nearest forest or go to your backyard and pick a variety of evergreen branches. Mr. B and I do that every year and it`s a little tradition in our home. I love the feel and a smell of fresh greenery in the house, especially evergreens. My advice to you is to try to find different kind of evergreens (pine, fir, spruce, cypress). Use them to make garlands, wreaths or just arrange them on a table with candlesticks and a few bulbs. You can also put them in a big bowl with fresh flowers and berries. This will make a beautiful center piece for your dining table. Possibilities with them are really endless, just use your imagination.

Svake godine G-din B. i ja krenemo u šetnju i naberemo punu torbu svežih grana četinara. Osim što su besplatne, ove grane predivno mirišu u domu i stvaraju savršen praznični osećaj. Savetujem da odaberete što više različitih vrsta grančica (bor, jela, smreka, čempres) zbog varijeteta u boji i oblicima listića i iglica. Savršene su za pravljenje girlandi i venčića, ali ih možete i jednostavno aranžirati na svečanom stolu sa svećnjacima i nekoliko novogodišnjih kuglica. Kombinovanjem ovih grana sa svežim cvećem i bobicama nastaje takođe i predivan aranžman za trpezarijski sto. Mogućnosti sa ovim granama su zapravo nebrojene, samo pustite mašti na volju.
No. 3 Use pine cones
No. 3 Ne zaboravite šišarke
While you are outside, picking the branches, pick a pine cones too. They are so easy and versatile to use. You can use them as they are, or you can paint them white and dust with a white, gold or silver glitter for more festive look. Attach a little bow on top with a hot glue and make a cute Christmas ornaments for your tree. You can also use them to pretty up your Christmas gifts, put them on a table with evergreens, or as a name tag holders for your guests. 

Dok ste napolju i berete grančice, ne zaboravite da ponesete i šišarke. One su vrlo praktičan i lep detalj za zimske dekore i možete ih koristiti u njihovom prirodnom izdanju ili obojiti ivice belom bojom i posuti belim, zlatnim ili srebrnim gliterom za pravi "zimski" utisak. Ukoliko (toplim lepkom) zalepite traku sa mašnom na vrhu dobićete lep ukras za jelku, a mogu biti i sjajan detalj na darovima. Još jedna od mogućnosti je da posluže kao ukras na stolu zajedno sa zimzelenim granama ili kao držač za kartice sa imenima, da bi svaki gost lako pronašao svoje mesto.
No. 4 Shop your home
No. 4 Krenite u shoping po svom domu
Take a tour around your home and find lovely things you already have, like crystal vases and candlesticks, decorative bowls and trophies, lanterns and champagne bucket. For example, put small Christmas tree in a bowl or champagne bucket to make a unique presentation. Fill trophies or vases with fresh flowers and evergreens and group them for a bigger impact (put some vases on an old book or pretty box, this way it want look so plane). Another great idea is use a photo frames you already have. Print your favorite Christmas quote or photo and put in a photo frame for additional welcoming detail in the hallway. For the kitchen, print in a cute font your favorite Christmas cookies recipe and put on a kitchen counter or shelf together with a mason jar full of fresh cookies.

Prošetajte svojom kućom i sakupite sve lepe stvari koje već imate, poput kristalnih vaza, pehara, lanterni i posuda za šampanjac. Stavite manju jelku u posudu za šampanjac i dobićete sasvim nov originalan izgled. Napunite vaze i pehare svežim zelenilom i grupišite ih da deluju zanimljivije i luksuznije. (za dodatni efekat neke vaze postavite na stare knjige ili lepe kutije kako postavka ne bi delovalo jednodimenzionalno). Druga ideja je da iskoristite ramove za slike koje već imate. Odštampajte neku lepu prazničnu sliku ili izreku, uramite i postavite u hol za dodatni efekat dobrodošlice. Za dekorisanje kuhinje možete odštampati recept za svoje omiljene praznične kolače, uramiti ga i postaviti na radnu ploču ili policu uz teglicu punu svežih kolačića.
No. 5 Decorate with a food
No. 5 Dekorišite hranom
Speaking of Christmas cookies, use them to decorate as well. Arrange your beautifully decorated cookies on a lovely cookie stand and use them to decorate kitchen, dining table or just put them near your fireplace for children and Santa.

Kad već pričamo o kolačima, upotrebite i svoje najlepše ukrašene kolačiće za dekoraciju doma. Aranžirajte ih na tanjiru ili stalku za kolače i iskoristite da ukrasite kuhinju, trpezariju ili ih stavite na stočić kraj kamina za decu i Deda Mraza.
No. 6 Decorate with a fresh fruit
No. 6 Dekorišite svežim voćem
Using seasonal fruit like lemons, tangerines, pomegranates, apples or pears to decorate is so easy. They are beautiful as they are and your house will smell fresh and lovely. You can add them to a fresh evergreens and flowers and create a great center piece for dining table. They will also add color to a neutral tablescape. 

Sezona je agruma, nara, jabuka, krušaka... Iskoristite lepotu i miris ovog voća da ulepšate prostor. Napravite aranžman od voća, svežih zimzelenih grana i cvetova i postavite na sto. Izgledaće lepo tokom svečane večere i dodaće kolorit uz neutralno postavljen sto.
No. 7 Decorate with joy
No. 7 Ukrašavajte sa radošću
Last but not least, it`s important to realize that not everything has to be perfect! Best part of holidays decorating is to enjoy it with your family. Play your favorite Christmas music or movies, drink some hot chocolate and have a good time. Be happy and grateful for everything you have and make your home a place you love. It's completely free! Remember, family adventures and ups and downs, that happen along the way, will leave you wonderful and funny memories for years to come!

Najzad, mada ne i najmanje važno je da se ne stresirate oko ukrašavanje i da ne pokušavate da sve bude savršeno. Najlepši deo praznika i ukrašavanja je uživanje u druženju sa porodicom. Zato, pustite omiljenu prazničnu muziku ili film, spremite toplu čokoladu i uživajte u procesu dekorisanja. Budite srećni i zadovoljni onim što imate i učinite svoj dom mestom koje vi volite. To je potpuno besplatno! Setite se da će vam porodične anegdote i nezgode, koje se usput dogode, ostaviti divne i zabavne uspomene za sve nove godine koje dolaze!

  17. Iako sam super uzbudena oko Bozica i praznika, jos uvijek nisam zapocela s ukrasavanjem sobe jer jednostavno ne pronalazim vremena. Hvala na prijedlozima, takodjer planiram manje kupovati ove godine jer redovno pretjeram s ukrasima xd. Inace, pohvaljujem izbor fotki :)
