Christmas is always the most special time of the year not only as a holiday and a time to be with your family, but as a reason to showcase your creativity. This is probably most noticeable in decorating your home for the holiday.
There are a few guidelines you’ll have to follow since there’s a theme that’s most associated with Christmas. However, within this theme, there are countless ways for you to showcase your own sense of style and the esthetic that fits with your home.
The more the merrier
When it comes to small ornaments, the more the merrier is the best rule to live by. It’s these small ornaments that get noticed most of all when they are spread around your home and when they bound it together in a single holiday aesthetic. This is best seen in using small wreaths.
These wreaths could be found in few sizes and they could be further decorated with ribbons in a variety of colors (even though red and silver are always the most popular). The effect will be most noticeable if every room has at least a couple of these in different places.
A Christmas tree
A Christmas tree is and should be the centerpiece of Christmas decorations and it should be chosen with that in mind. Firstly, don’t purchase just any tree you could find in your area; but instead, look for one that suits your needs in terms of size and lushness. It’s easy to find a Christmas shop online in Australia that will suit your needs.
Try to experiment a bit with the tree and stick with the single theme you’ve chosen for it, instead of using your Christmas decorations indiscriminately.
A starry sky
One of the simplest and the most effective window ornaments you could make are the stars that you can string alongside the window. You’ll need a simple string to attach the stars on the windows and the stars themselves could be a small DIY project or you could purchase them pre-made.
The key to making this ornament interesting is exciting is to make the stars diverse and interesting on their own. This is done by making sure that they’re in different sizes, different colors and in different materials. You could go with anything from paper and plastic to small wooden stars.
The porch itself plays a big role in determining the aesthetic of your home since it’s the first thing that’s noticed when you approach it and it should be decorated with Christmas spirit in mind as well. For instance, you could start with small Christmas trees at each side of the door.
It’s also a good idea to frame the door with Christmas lights or to make it more noticeable by putting up a larger wreath at the center of it. The key however, is not to let these ornaments overcrowd the door and the front porch as a whole.
A hot cocoa bar
One great feature to add to your home during Christmas is a small hot cocoa bar in your living room or in the dining room depending on how your home is set up. It’s a great addition since there’s nothing more refreshing than hot cocoa on a cold day and if there are no cold days in your part of the world, the hot cocoa brings out a winter vibe anyhow.
All you need for it are a few cute cups, enough cocoa and a small decorative sign to place above the bar.
Christmas season is a great time to give your home a makeover. It’s the small touches that would make it seem more festive and cozier.
