With Christmas fast approaching, there is no better time to unleash your festive side and decorate your home with a few Christmas decorations. Pick your colour theme and start decorating the tree!
The colour theme
Begin with your colour theme. Christmas doesn’t have to represented by red and green. Blue and white, gold and silver or red and white are all common colour themes for Christmas. In the end, there are no rules. As long as your tree is decorated with pretty ball balls and sparkly tinsel, Christmas knows no strict theme.
Your Christmas tree is your personal personification of Christmas. From family to family, Christmas traditions differ but what remains similar is the importance of a tree. Once your colour theme is chosen, the importance now lies with the choice of decorations. Glass balls, angels, tinsel and lights often make an appearance on the Christmas tree however there is nothing stopping you from getting creative.
Making Christmas decorations is a great activity for kids and will bring back many memories each December when they are pulled out of storage. Christmas themed cookie cutters make for unique tree decorations as do DIY bonbons, paper craft and ribbons.
You’re front door will initiate the Christmas spirit upon entering your home. This is especially important if you are entertaining on Christmas day. There is no need to go all out with your front door decorations however a wreath, bow or some Christmas flora will turn your front door into a festive paradise.
Decorating your mantelpiece is a religious tradition. Whether you hang out stockings, offer carrots and whiskey or set up a nativity set, your mantelpiece should represent family and love, colour and joy. Religious ornaments can safely be displayed up here away from small children and pets.
