Christmas Decorating Tips & Tricks

I’m sure all of you have your own method already when it comes to decorating your homes. I just thought I would tell you about my own process and a few tips and tricks we use while decorating for Christmas.

P.s. I really hope this motivates you to decorate sooner in the season because we all need a little Christmas cheer in our lives right now. If you really want it to last longer then I suggest you start now!

Ok here goes……..

Colour Coordinate

Start with a rough palate in your head. It could be traditional that’s red and white. It could be all white, plaid or even pink. The new trend is a rainbow Christmas!

Have larger pieces of Christmas Decor

Larger pieces of decor always fill up more space and it makes clean up so much easier. These are the the items we always start with first because then we know which areas need to be filled up.

Here are some ideas of larger pieces of Christmas decor besides obviously your Christmas tree.

Wreaths on windows

Wreaths are so easily available in the city or you could even make your own using an embroidery hoop and some fake Christmas garland looped around it. Add some ribbon to that and you’re done!

Get creative by adding garlands in doors, add lights and drape them in arches for that little bit of an extra touch.

Linen

Christmas cushions, blankets, table linen and kitchen towels cover more surface area of your home adding larger accent pieces. You can find a lot of this on Amazon, Ikea and a select few linen stores.

Lights

Lastly, lights!! You can’t start decorating for Christmas if your light game isn’t strong! Since most of us in the city live in flats we need to add some cheer to the facade of our homes, meaning the window area.

Let’s not stop there, bring the light inside too, add lights on all your garlands, use electric lights and candles.

All is calm, all is bright!
