I adore Christmas, but don’t particularly like putting up the Christmas decorations – or taking them down for that matter! It is fiddly and time-consuming. But if you adore doing this kind of job, and can create the perfect Christmas Tree, why not work during the holidays doing this kind of work. A Seasonal Holiday Decorator is perfect for the Mum who is looking for extra money for the holidays but doesn’t want the commitment of full-time work during the year.
When you think about it, it isn’t just households that put up Christmas Decorations, approach local commercial businesses and shopping centres to see if you can tender for their holiday work.
You can also have a ‘Take Down’ service for after Christmas (for an additional cost – of course!). Because we all know how hard it is to put away those darn Christmas Lights!
Work as a Seasonal Holiday Decorator isn’t just limited to Christmas. Other ideas include:
- Kids Birthday Party Decorators
- Making the Home Suitable for Sale (House Styler)
- Commercial functions like balls or dances
- Wedding Stylist
How Much Should You Charge to be a Seasonal Holiday Decorator?
It would really depend on how long it takes, and what level of attention to detail your clients are looking for. I would suggest that you have a few different ‘levels’. Bronze, Silver and Gold. You would have to charge at least $100 for a basic seasonal decoration of a living area, and pricing should go from there.
If you are expected to find and purchase specific seasonal decorations, charge an hourly rate for your time and research.
