To help you with decorating your home this Christmas, we've put together our 4 best Christmas decorating tips!
1. Choosing a colour scheme for your Christmas decorations
A big decision when it comes to decorating your tree is choosing a colour scheme. You could go for a traditional look as suggested by The Telegraph of red and gold, which will add warmth to your home. Or, if you prefer a cooler, more wintery style, why not pick silver and white decorations? Your home will feel stylish and modern, but cosy and warm in its own winter wonderland.
Top tip! Avoid buying all of the same colour and decoration. Make sure to mix and match your baubles so that there's plenty of variety amongst your Christmas decs this year.
2. Add a touch of festive feeling to your front door
There are so many ways to deck the halls in your home this Christmas including hanging a wreath on your front door. Whether you're buying or making your own, these pretty decorations add a special touch and a warm welcome to those visiting you throughout the festive period. Why not find a wreath-making class this Christmas and make your own? Country and Town House have a number of events listed on their website here.
3. Set the scene for your Christmas dinner
Dressing the table ready for Christmas dinner can really add warmth to your home, whilst impressing your guests with your decorating skills. Plaid is particularly popular at this time of year, so why not try using a plaid table cloth to add a touch of colour to your dinner table?
(Psst...this means your table will also be spill-proof!)
4. Don't forget the finishing touches!
In the lead up to Christmas, shops are in abundance of festive cushions and throws which can help to create that cosy and warm atmosphere in your home. Why not pop down to your local Marks & Spencer and pick up a sumptuous blanket for your bedroom? You can pop electric candles in your living room, perfect for creating a relaxing environment for watching TV, reading a book or spending time with your friends and family.
