How to Create the Perfect Traditional Christmas

With Christmas just a matter of days away, you may think that you’re out of time in terms of decorating, however, fear not, with a few decorations and some patience, you can transform your home into a traditional Christmas wonderland.

We have shared some of our favourite festive decoration tips below.

Christmas Tree

This is the feature piece of any room and for good reason too! Whether you opt for a real tree or not, the method is almost identical, you need to settle on a theme and go with it.

If you’re looking for a traditional Christmas tree, you can’t go wrong with red and gold, the staple colours of a festive, traditional Christmas.

You can purchase hundreds of different styles of baubles and decorations or if you’re feeling brave why not try your hand at making your own, they will be a lovely memento of the festive season that you can use year in year out.

Decorating the Table

Garlands, pine cones, candles, these are friends when decorating your table traditionally! Decorating the tables around your home can make a huge difference, especially the smaller console tables.

You could even add a few fairy lights to brighten things up. It may seem like a small task but taking the time to decorate your tables will make your guests feel incredibly festive and welcome.

Wreaths

Creating your own wreath is not only incredible simple it is hugely effective and the best part, you can design your wreath to you Christmas style.

You can also make large ones, for your door and little ones to pop all around your home and nothing says festive cheer like a homemade wreath.

Mince Pies

Now these are not strictly a decoration, however they are an integral part of any Christmas.

Whether you have puff pastry or short crust pastry, one thing is for sure, these festive delights give you a taste of Christmas with every mouthful! As an extra special touch why not try some pine icing sugar.

 

However you decide to decorate your home this year just remember to enjoy the festivities, maybe with a mince pie or 2 :)
