Sometimes holiday decor seems like a lot of fun.

Keep things simple and stylish with bare wreaths hung in the center of your windows. This adds texture and a pop of rich holiday green.
Elaborate window decor is often dreamy but can also take a lot of time to complete. Keep it simple with an extra long strand of garland draped from the top of your windows along with a bare wreath in the center. To keep it all lit up, stick with a strand of frosted globe lights tacked up around the outside edge of the window trim.
