As one of the busiest times of the year, the Christmas period can often be one of the most expensive. That’s why, when it comes to decorating your home ready for December’s festivities, it’s important to focus on the little touches that can make a big impact!

Make Your Own Ornaments 

Undoubtedly, for many, one the best aspects surrounding the festive period is the whole family coming together and celebrating - and luckily, when it comes to Christmas, it’s never too early to get a head start on the festive family fun.

When it comes to decorating your home, it’s often the sentimental decorations that recall your fondest memories. Don’t be afraid to get messy with a glitter palette, some card and scissors and create a personalised bunting to hang in your hallway, baubles for your tree or even a recipe book filled with your family’s favourite treats.

Not only does doing it yourself provide an inexpensive way to decorate your home, but by sharing handmade greetings cards with eachother, your family can lovingly display their individual personalities and messages in pride and place on the mantlepiece. 

Think About the Little Things

As one of the busiest times of the year, the Christmas period can often be one of the most expensive. That’s why, when it comes to decorating your home ready for December’s festivities, it’s important to focus on the little touches that can make a big impact.

Our suggestions include swapping the lightbulbs in your home for ones that emit a warmer, ambient glow, or focusing on your other senses and spreading the festive cheer with spiced, Christmas-smelling candles. You could also swap out your dining set and mugs for subtly seasonally-coloured alternatives - think red, gold and green - and embrace the festive atmosphere at all times of the day.

Complement Your Cooking Area

If you’re hosting the annual family gathering in your home this year, you’ll know how important it is to keep your kitchen tidy and filled with plenty of useful appliances as the Christmas dinner countdown begins.

Get into the festive spirit with an apron filled with practical pockets, made from a wipe-clean material and glossed with an abundance of Christmas detail to keep you in the mood no matter how manic the food preparations get. Keep your recipe book handy and tablet at the ready for last-minute food saving techniques and timers that won’t let you forget the turkey in the oven.

Not only that, but it’s important to ensure the star of the show, your oven, is clean a few days before and ensure all your potato peelers and knives are veg-prep ready to save any ad-hoc disasters on the day.

Whether you’re looking for the finishing touches to complement your already extravagant decor or you’re just beginning your search for festive interior inspiration, there are plenty of decorative techniques you can use to make this Christmas one to remember - and by taking our advice into account, you can keep your home classy!
