How to make a Home Festive

29 November 2012 14:36

It's that time of year when you are probably thinking about how to make your home festive. There will be the annual jaunt up that part of the loft where you pack your Christmas decorations away each year, and perhaps a trip to town (or on the internet) to find something new to add cheer and that Christmassy feel! So here a few tips to add the sense of Christmas to your home:

Make your entrance festive by putting up a bought wreath, or by making one yourself with craft wire and twigs. Add a red ribbon, some decorations and some holly and immediately your home feels welcoming.

Put a tealight in a jam jar. Tie some rafia around the outside of the jar and tie on a Christmas tree decoration. This will really make your doorstep look welcoming at night when you light it.

Use scented cinnamon, frankinsence and myrhh candles to add that glorious smell of Christmas.

Decorate your mantelpiece with fairy lights, greenery and decorative letters to spell out festive words such as Joy, Peace, or Christmas.

Choose a colour theme and place decorations in that colour throughout the house.

Place a centre-piece in the middle of your table that is beautiful and decorative.

Use a festive fire screen, such as the Jolly Santa fire screen or the Santa and Friends fire screen to really add a sense of excitement to your home.

However you choose to decorate your home we wish you all a very merry Christmas.
