NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - For some, the holidays are not the most wonderful time of the year.

Design expert Susanna Salk can help put all those excuses to rest, and show you how easy and fun celebrating the holidays at home can be. "Decorating for the holidays does not have to be expensive or stressful," says Salk. "Follow these top tips for easy holiday decorating without breaking the bank."

Susanna's Top Tips for Easy Holiday Decorating on a Budget

Shop Online

Salk's number one tip is to purchase holiday necessities online to avoid time-consuming trips to the store. "Many of your décor and gifting needs can be purchased from the comfort of your home on websites like One Kings Lane, an online shopping destination bringing great value on all holiday essentials, including designer décor and thoughtful gifts -- at prices up to 70% off."

Create a Timeless Dining Room Table

"The holiday table is a cornerstone of family gatherings, but decorating it doesn't have to be difficult," says Salk. Dress up your basic dishware with accessories in colors that make the table feel seasonal and chic. Choose items you can use year-round to help your table settings last through the New Year. Salk recommends pairing your every day entertaining items with holiday ones, like basic white plates with festive gold chargers.

Makeover the Mantel

The mantel is the centerpiece of the home and great for decorating during the holiday season. Select a theme or color-scheme, like white, gold and green, to create a festive, simple and sophisticated display. To complete the look, Salk recommends combining every day home and entertaining items with a few special seasonal products. "Set the mood by decorating with a collection of key items, like gold candles, topiaries or white flowers, and then layer in seasonal and colorful touches," says Salk. "Adding a few simple and affordable holiday decorations with items you already have around the house is the easiest way to decorate for the holidays."
