2. Deck The Halls With
Creative Christmas decorations are the secret to success when you’re planning Christmas at home. Before you start decorating, be sure to pick a theme for a stylish and coordinated festive display. Whether that’s festive reds and whites or bright Christmas décor, try to stick to a specific colour scheme in each room.
3. Decorate A Show-Stopping Christmas Tree
Your Christmas decorations aren’t complete without a show-stopping Christmas tree. From snowy pine trees and rainbow designs to classic Christmas trees, there’s plenty of options to suit both traditional and contemporary themes.
Once you’ve fluffed and shaped the branches, it’s time for the exciting part: decorating! For a picture-perfect tree, think metallic baubles, novelty Christmas tree decorations and twinkling Christmas lights.
For a stylish tree that any professional would be proud of, try to keep your decorations evenly spaced. You can also get creative by adding ribbons, candy canes and Christmas crackers.
4. Plan Games & Activities
Between juggling decorating your home and buying gifts, Christmas is often one of the busiest times of the year.
With kids on school holidays and more excited than ever we recommend planning some extra activities and games to help keep them entertained. This is especially important when the Christmas sugar rush hits!
For an engaging activity that’s great for all ages, start a board game tournament complete with family favourites such as Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble.
If you’re feeling competitive why not dust off the Monopoly board and see who can stack up the most houses!
5. Prep Seasonal Snacks
From mince pies and yule log to Christmas pudding, festive food is an iconic (and delicious!) part of the season. Make decorating, wrapping and relaxing a delicious task by preparing some fuss-free finger food.
Dreaming of canapés? Thankfully they aren’t as time-consuming as you might think – all you need is a few handy kitchen appliances.
