As the festive period fast approaches only two months away now, the thought of decorating the entire house can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to start. If you’ve just moved into a new home or are simply looking for new ways to bring the Christmas spirit into your home and make it stand out, don’t stress we are here to help! We’ve put together a list of decorations that we think are the most important to make your home feel perfectly festive this year.
The first on our list and the staple that every house should have at Christmas-time is lights – the easiest way to make your home feel that bit more welcoming, and a classy way to dress it for Christmas. You can choose from many colours, shapes and sizes to light up your home this Christmas. The varieties of lights are endless – classic white lights, multi-coloured bulb lights, colour-changing rope lights and icicle lights to name a few. Christmas lighting can be both interior and exterior, adding a sparkling festive touch to your entire home for the whole family.
2. Christmas Tree
Whether you prefer an artificial pre-lit tree or something more authentic, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree is the ultimate item to set a festive mood. It also is the way to bring a burst of your personality to your home. If you live in a smaller property, slimmer trees can help you accentuate your space, and for a unique twist on this traditional decoration, why not try an LED twig tree.
Wreaths adorned with ribbons and lights are a perfectly traditional way to draw attention to your home and make it stand out in your street. Whether artificial or made of real leaves, place it on your front door to give the outside of your house a festive feel.
4. Novelty Decorations
Novelty decorations are a fun way to add some festive humour to your home, from light-up candy canes and gin-filled baubles to dancing Santas and cuddly plush elves, novelty decorations make even the most un-appreciating Scrooge get in the Christmas mood!
Inside the home, decorative garlands can help to bring some festive magic to the staircase, by trailing up the bannister and continuing the festivities to the upstairs of the property. Outside, pre-lit garlands can be used to illuminate the front of your home and set your house apart from the rest of the street.
To bring a little romance into your home for Christmas, mistletoe is a fitting addition. Add this to the top of any doorway in your home and make sure a loved one doesn’t walk underneath it without giving you a little peck!
7. Handmade Decorations
To add that personal touch to your home, handmade decorations are a great idea. From glass painted baubles and pom-pom wreaths to paper garlands and glittery pine cones, there are many unique decorations you can create that don’t have to break the bank. Plus, it’s a perfect activity to keep the children busy in the Christmas holidays!
