From pumpkins to cardboard turkey cut-outs to a small evergreen, seasonal decorations are always a smart choice to make Phoenix apartments look a little more festive. Plus, it can help you feel genuine excitement in anticipation of all the fun parties and gatherings to come. The holidays give everyone a chance to forget about the standard stresses of work and life so they can focus on the people who matter most to them. Here are a few tips for setting just the right mood. 

Start Small 

It's easy to get excited about all the new seasonal decorations out on the shelves. If you've never really shopped for these kinds of items, you may feel like you have to make up for lost time. To stop yourself from going overboard, you concentrate on picking up just a few decorations for each season. Once you set them up in your apartment, you can see how it looks. Start with a hanging wreath, a few tchotchkes and one large object (a tree, cornucopia, etc.) If you still need more, you can always head back out to the store. 

Look for Interactive Items 

Try to select seasonal decorations that bring people together. For example, you can light a jack-o-lantern when you're watching a scary movie with a glass of wine. Or you can decorate a few evergreen boughs with tinsel and ornaments. These kinds of activities are a way to connect with the items that you buy and an excuse to invite friends over to do the same. It's a way to form the sentimental connections that prove you celebrated the holidays the way they were meant to be celebrated.
