Want to give your home a facelift to set the mood for celebrations before you welcome family and friends this season? Deck the entryway and every single room in your house with the help of our Christmas decor guide. From tree decor to other indoor decorations, these ideas include clever tricks and tips to spread plenty of cheer this Christmas.
Dress up your Christmas tree The entryway is the fi rst thing guests see when they walk in, so make sure it is decked out in the spirit of Christmas. Turn your entryway into a beautiful green oasis this season. Opt for redand- green plants in decorative planters and place them at the entrance of your home. You can change the plants or colours to suit your taste.
Dress up your Christmas tree There are many ways to make your Christmas tree come to life. For a traditional holiday palette, pair the green of your Christmas tree with reds—from ornaments and stockings to presents and lights. Your Christmas tree can also feel exceptionally elegant if you decorate it with sweeping golden ribbons that twinkle with the lights. Another idea is to pin cascading curls of ribbon to the top of your tree, letting it fall unencumbered to the floor, then pair it with adornments. If you are short on ornaments, opt for layered lights to set your tree aglow.
Dress up your Christmas tree Every good Christmas story contains stockings hung carefully for Santa. Hang your family’s stockings from a wall or a mantel and highlight the collection with a thick garland and twinkle lights. You can also make dressers, cupboards and other storage pieces fi t for a visit from Santa by hanging stockings from their pulls and drawers.
Dress up your Christmas tree For a glorious display of colour and light, put up star-shaped lanterns. A mix of paper, metal, and wood stars in various sizes and shapes hung with twine can act as a threedimensional gallery wall. You can leave it up all winter!
Bring out Santa Claus Santa fi gurines come in all shapes and sizes, and you may have collected quite an assortment over the years. Embrace the mismatch and display them as a group on a shelf. Even a miniature display of Santa Claus and his reindeer looks especially fun on some fake snow.
Focus on the dinner table Opt for the traditional red and green scheme on your table or try a new colour combination. Complete each setting with place mats, napkins and elegant dinnerware. Place candles on the table for a cheerful ambience.
Fill your home with a golden glow Creating a welcoming ambience for Christmas can be super simple and easily achieved. By opting for golden lights on your tree, you are instantly setting the mood for festivities while crafting a cosy atmosphere. Arrange candles in elegant shades of gold and deep reds or fi ll glass jars with string lights and then cluster them together on a mantel or a table. So this Christmas, add special touches to your home using these décor ideas and get in the holiday spirit! .
