  1. Traditional wreath on the door of your home

A traditional element of any home in December, placing a wreath on your front door is a great way to spread the Christmas cheer before you’ve even entered your house.

Whether it features pine cones, candy canes, fairy lights , holly berries or mini baubles, this small addition can make all the difference in giving your home a little festive atmosphere.

And, in similar style, you can then emphasise the rest of the doors in your home with small trinkets like velvet ribbon or mistletoe.

It’s these small and quirky touches that make all the difference!

  1. Choosing a Christmas tree to suit your space

However, by far, your Christmas tree is the most iconic element of any holiday décor.

With so many options now available, including narrow and halved options, you’re sure to find one to meet the needs of your space.

The same goes for your Christmas tree decorations, you can emphasise your own personality with your use of vintage ornaments, glass baubles and other accessories.

One of our favourite holiday decorating ideas we’ve seen has been using dried Gypsophila between branches to give the impression of fake snow – a tradition from the 70s.

  1. Decorating your dining room

Arguably the second most important feature of any Christmas season – your dining room table.

Some may want to leave this until Christmas morning to take care of, however small additions like a table runner and ornaments in the lead up to the big day can stop it from looking out of place and provide some extra sparkle to the rest of your Christmas decorations.

Then it’s just simply the case of adding your seasonal candles and plates to finish the look.
