Pull out all the stops this season and bring Christmas cheer into your home. It might not be a white Christmas this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create the ultimate cosy, festive home. Putting up your tree is a great start, but have a browse through our top-tips to really bring home that jolly atmosphere, just in time for Christmas.

Bunting & Streamers

You don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to add a little extra sparkle to your home. Using materials you will have at home, such as printing paper or scraps of wrapping paper and leftover ribbon, you can create strings of beautiful snowflakes, trees or spell out a festive message. Unleash your creativity and create a unique snowflake or starry streamer to hang on your fireplace or the banister of your staircase. You can use regular A4 sheets of paper for your snowflakes. If you Alternatively, you can create your own banner that says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays and hang this on your wall for added cosiness.

Flowers & Wreaths

Christmas time is often associated with red poinsettias, you will find them in every supermarket and flower shop at the moment. However, if this isn’t quite your thing, then there are plenty of other options of adding a little extra festive flair to your home. Not only will you find many sparkly bouquets in shops and online, you can also buy a beautiful wreath. Nowadays, you can buy fake ones to store in the back of your cupboard after the holidays are over, but why not splurge on a wreath with seasonal greenery? Rather than hang it on the outside of your front door, hang it on the inside instead so it has a change to spread the delicious pine scents. If you don’t have time to go to the shops, it’s not too late to order one through shops like Bloom Magic.

Candle Light

Nothing adds more cosiness and atmosphere than fairy lights and candle lights. On especially dark December nights, scatter round a few more candles around your living room or kitchen for added flair. Together with the light from your Christmas tree, it will create a super cosy atmosphere. Invest in a few festive tea light holders that will cast beautiful patterns onto your walls. Scandi-inspired tea lights are very popular and are readily available. Spruce up your living room with porcelain houses, rose gold bowls or ones with a landscape. For bigger statement pieces, buy a beautiful glass or metal lanterns that will emit the warm candle light beautifully on cold nights. All that’s missing is a comfy throw and a big cup of tea.
