The autumnal trees are losing their leaves; the weather is now on the colder side, and December is fast approaching. This only means one thing; Christmas is on the way! Although 2020 has been a year of uncertainties, with ever-changing rules and socially distant meet-ups, Christmas can still be a holiday to look forward to. Here are some tips on how to make your Christmas luxurious wherever you are.
The Christmas tree creates a magnificent centerpiece within the home and symbolizes that Christmas is coming for adults and children alike. The first thing to decide is which room you would like to place the tree in. Do you have a space in the living room, close to the log fire, where the tree would look especially festive? Or perhaps you have a large open plan kitchen where the tree can be enjoyed, along with the Christmas day lunch? Once you have found the perfect space for the tree, it’s time to decorate it. You may wish to stick with the traditional colors of red and green or try something less traditional with a theme such as Pop Art, where any color is favored as long as it’s bright!
To keep your home looking festive yet luxurious, it’s important to stick with one theme throughout. You may be tempted to place decorations that don’t match your intended theme, but this may create a color clash and, in turn, look garish. If you are struggling for ideas, Christmas trends for 2020 are starting to appear, and there really is something to suit every taste. Decorator’s Warehouse, a premier Christmas store, strives to help you create an inviting home for the holidays with its large selection of products for every style. Don’t forget to leave space for the Christmas stocking and room under the tree for presents. Stylishly decorated gifts can complement the tree and really set off the festive theme. Try using sustainable gift wrap tied with string and finished with a sprig of spruce or holly for a simple yet effective look.
Food is a great way to indulge in festive celebrations. It doesn’t just have to be the Christmas lunch that we look forward to; try making mince pies or a yule log during December, dusting with icing sugar to add a festive hint. Of course, the main attraction is the 25th, where the Christmas lunch is planned well. Typically, the meal consists of a light starter, followed by roast turkey and Christmas pudding to finish. If you are looking to try something a little different this year, a vegetarian nut roast or a pork loin could replace the traditional turkey. On the big day, don’t forget to decorate the dining table to add the final touch of luxury.
