Decorating your home during the Christmas season is almost as exciting as opening your presents on Christmas day. Everybody loves that cosy, family feeling when the tree is up, the lights are on, and the reindeers are on the front lawn. Super Amart knows how important this special time of the year is to you and your family, and have created a short list of ways to make your home feel like Christmas.
Light Naturally Scented Candles
Candles provide a sweet-smelling ambiance that is perfect for Christmas feasts. Organic candles that do not contain petroleum are a better choice, as they don’t emit harmful fumes, nor fragrance chemicals that may be dangerous to inhale. The most popular fragrances over the Christmas season are sweet mint, warm vanilla, fresh cypress, and spiced plum.
Decorate Your Home With Fresh Herbs And Plant Cuttings
Fresh herb and plant cuttings are a natural way to add a little Christmas scent into your home. If you’re adventurous, you can always use a live Christmas tree, or cinnamon stick bunches for a spicy holiday aroma. Fresh sprigs of rosemary and sage kept in water always go well in your kitchen, as they release their natural oils and permeate the air for a nice festive touch.
Use Outdoor Decorations.
Outdoor Christmas decorations, such as a home-made wreath, are great accessories to hang on your front door to welcome your Christmas guests. When making a wreath, use pinecones instead of fresh greens, or simply buy one made of wire or plastic that will last indefinitely. You can also create an outdoor Nativity scene, with statues of Mary, Joseph, or baby Jesus, or a Santa and reindeer scene that will look great against the backdrop of Christmas lights.
Decorate Your House In Red And Green
Decorating your house in the red and green colours of Christmas will definitely make your home look more festive. Simply buy some red and green lounge pillows, dishcloths, ribbons, curtains, and placemats. You can also buy a poinsettia plant to add a natural red and green Christmas touch, and place red and green candles around the house.
Hang Some Mistletoe
Mistletoe is an essential adornment that, tied with a little red ribbon, can instantly make a home feel like Christmas. Simply find a fresh snag from a nursery or a hardwood tree in your yard or neighbourhood, or even a piece of faux mistletoe, and hang it in a doorway of your house. And don’t forget to encourage people to give each other a quick kiss if they find themselves standing under the mistletoe together. It’s a Christmas tradition that can’t be avoided!
Making your home feel like Christmas is quite easy, and these simple additions will transform your home in a sweet-scented red and green festive paradise. So put up the tree, hang the mistletoe, and enjoy the festive season with family and friends.
