The holiday season is here, and it's time to get your home ready for all of the celebrations ahead. If you're the kind of person who likes to go all-out for the holidays, you may even want to consider getting some new festive switch plates. Decorating for the holidays may seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. There are many simple ways to turn your home into the perfect place to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, all you have to do is be a little creative.

Utilize ornaments
Ornaments aren't just for Christmas trees - you can put them throughout your entire home. For example, consider getting a decorative bowl, filling it with different ornaments and using it as a centerpiece on your holiday table. Better Homes and Gardens magazine suggested using ornaments to create a wreath to hang either inside your home or on your front door. You can also use some ribbons to hang ornaments from the ceiling and create a chandelier look. 

Decorate with fruit
Fruit is both colorful and festive, and Real Simple magazine recommended that you use it as an inexpensive way to decorate for the holidays. For Christmas, you can fill a bowl with red and green apples, or use oranges, which are very popular during the holiday season. 

Get some lights
You can't decorate for Christmas without holiday lights. Good Christmas lights can be used for years to come, and they aren't just for the outdoors, either. You can wrap Christmas lights around your banister or even place them around the mantel.

Look for a ladder
Better Homes and Gardens suggested purchasing an antique ladder from a flea market and putting it to good use during the holiday season. You can hang Christmas lights around it, hang ornaments on it or wrap red, green, silver and gold ribbons around it for a holiday decoration that is sure to catch the eye of all your family and friends. 

Don't forget about the outdoors
While it's important to make the inside of your home sparkle, it is just as important to focus on the outdoors as well. Consider picking up some bright red and green plants to place in front of your door, hanging a wreath of flowers and even hanging some ornaments around your mailbox to show off your holiday spirit to the whole neighborhood.
