Now it’s time to start getting your cosy Christmas decor out of the loft ready for the family to come round this festive season. In this blog, we will go through some ideas for cosy Christmas decor to bring the festive season in with a bang!
Our Ideas For Your Cosy Christmas Decor
Give Your Home The Gift Of Scent
Cosy Christmas decor doesn’t have to just be about big red socks and tinsel. Candles are arguably one of the most festive and best ways to set the mood over the festive period. The aromatic smells of spiced apple, pine, berries and of course cinnamon to name a few. Placing individual candles around your home and windows make a perfectly cosy Christmas decor delight. One creative way to make a table centrepiece is to cluster some candles together. Place on a decoration plate, add some pine cones and festive potpourri for a beautiful table decoration.
Light Up Your Home Like Santa’s Grotto
One of the most popular forms of cosy Christmas decor is obviously the Christmas lights. There isn’t a time at Christmas when you drive around the neighbourhood and you don’t see a house all lit up. It's all part of the festive fun build-up that comes only once a year, so don’t miss out. Warm Christmas lights are a beautiful addition to your cosy Christmas decor. There are countless ways in which you can decorate your home with Christmas lights that make your space pop. Whether they are just put neatly on your tree or you are putting them down your bannister, they all make excellent use of the home.
Swap Your Picture Frames for Festive Alternatives
If you are one to have lots of framed pictures of family and friends, why not swap out your boring frames and add more festive ones to match your cosy Christmas decor. Our 3D family portraits can be made festive, which make for a fantastic addition to your home around Christmas, as well as all year round. This will help you to create the perfect cosy Christmas decor throughout the home and will keep the appearance festive.
Create A Show-Stopping Tree As The Main Cosy Christmas Decor Event!
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a beautifully decorated tree standing in the corner of your living room. Christmas trees make a great cosy Christmas decor addition and are a must in many homes. If you are not one to have lots of decoration, then a tree should be the one thing that you do choose to put up.
There are two options for this, you could go artificial which hold a better look and can be used year after year, or go for a classic, real Christmas tree. You get less of a traditional shape, but you also get that festive scent in your home which is unbeatable. For additional cosy Christmas decor, we produce personalised Christmas tree ornaments. This way you can have your whole family on the tree. Get the whole family involved when decorating the tree, as this brings a festive feeling in itself.
Display Your Christmas Cards Proudly
If you have many friends and family or even kids, then chances are you are going to have a mountain of cards. This is great but you simply don’t have room to put them everywhere. There are many innovative ways in which you can display your Christmas cards which will make a great addition to your cosy Christmas decor. The standard areas to fill up with cards are either your mantlepiece or your windows and this is nice but can get pretty repetitive. One innovative way in which you can display your Christmas cards is to create a beautiful hanging display by attaching some string to the cards and dangling them from your stairway bannister for the perfect addition to your cosy Christmas decor.
Create Your Own Cosy Christmas Decor
Many different things can be homemade when it comes to cosy Christmas decor such as your own wreath, paper snowflakes or chains for your home. These are great ways to get the whole family involved to get them in the spirit of Christmas. Homemade decorations are that extra bit special as you know that everyone has been involved with the cosy Christmas decor. Many families have their own traditions which make the Christmas period even more special. Why not have a think about the things that you and your family enjoy and start making a tradition of it for years to come.
Getting in the festive spirit and decorating your home with cosy Christmas decor is such a special time of year, so try something a bit different this Christmas with our suggestions above!
