We’re well into December now so it’s time to start metaphorically throwing glitter at the situation! Follow these steps to decorating you home and you’ll be Christmas ready in no time.
Set the tone for your home by adorning your front door with a wreath – something like Floreo will fit the bill. Don’t limit yourself to the threshold, any door within your house can get the glammed up – we like the Anngarsk stars.
For most, the tree is the main focal point, and we can’t deny the festive effect this has on your home. Whether you choose to go real, fake or something quite different (our Arran trees are back, and this year come in cream and green), we urge you to get flamboyant with lights, garlands and baubles and drape, tie and hang ‘til your heart’s content. Our favourites are Avanti, Cimballi and Franga. Mix these with a Galda garland and Orbit lights. If space is minimal, you’ll always find room for one of our little LED trees to get you in the festive spirit. Natale, Twig or String are just the twinkly ticket.
Whilst we’re on the topic of fairy lights, don’t relegate these solely to the tree. Drape Bonsai across a mantelpiece, encircle Micro around a window frame or wind Daphne around a banister. Such is the convenience of LEDs that we now have battery operated fairy lights…no plug point required and therefore endless possibilities for sparkle! Fairy lights have become an all year round affair so don’t even feel obliged to take them down in January. There are really no limits to little lights!
What is a home at Christmas without candlelight? Differing heights of flickering light will make a real statement down the centre of the dining table. Picking something like Heidi, Clarkson or Klein. Any of them will omit all the hard work of arranging and they’re easily cleared with a single swipe when the turkey is ready to take centre stage.
Ready, steady, celebrate!
