I am currently in a debate with my english teacher about the proper usage of the ornate in a sentence. The sentence is: My house was already ORNATE for the holidays. Is that correct?

    Ornate means "highly decorated", so if I substituted the definition of ornate for the word, then it would make complete sense. "My house was already highly decorated for the holidays"
