Christmas is just around the corner: very soon we will be decorating our homes with Christmas decorations. Although at this time of year there is no shortage of advent wreaths, stockings on the mantelpiece and the classic Christmas tree, decorations can always be revamped with new and eye-catching elements.
Admittedly, Christmas decorations can be a little restrictive, but it turns out that Christmas decorations have unlimited design potential – you just have to be a little creative.
To give you some inspiration, we are going to give you some Christmas decoration ideas to make your home a place full of magic, joy and lots of sparkle.
Whether you’re hosting a large group of guests on these special days or just want to add a little festive cheer to your table, there are endless ways to decorate a Christmas table.
We bring you two ideas for decorating your Christmas table to delight your guests.
Our first choice for such a special day as Christmas is a specially decorated table. Black and gold is one of the most exuberant and glamorous combinations for a luxurious interior design, and you can also use it on the Christmas dinner table.
If you find the first option too sober, decorate your table with candles of different shapes and sizes to create a central decoration for your Christmas table.
But if there is one colour that can define Christmas and the whole Christmas spirit, it is red.
You can also combine red with silver for a more exquisite look on your Christmas table.
One of the best places to start decorating is your front door. Many of us have followed the same formula for years when it comes to decorating our front doors. We buy a pre-decorated wreath, hang it up and call it a day. However, there are many more things you can do to decorate your front door than the same old wreath.
This year with our ideas, you’ll surprise everyone with creative and thoughtful Christmas decorations that will get everyone in the Christmas spirit.
We want you to make a spectacular first impression with the golden pine cones, which are versatile enough to work with different decorations, within a traditional green advent wreath or even added as part of the greenery at the entrance of your home.
Forget the typical wreath and opt for a large wreath, placing it on the top half of the door’s perimeter. Avoid tinsel or brightly coloured decorations and opt for ribbons, balls and stars in romantic colours such as burgundy and gold.
The result is totally classic and timeless, perfect for those who prefer their Christmas decorations to be sophisticated.
When you think of Christmas decorations for your home, the first thing that comes to mind is a big tree, a beautiful centrepiece, a prominent entryway, but the staircase may not come to mind. If you have a lot of garlands, lights, ribbons, ornaments and even crafts lying around, don’t let them go to waste. Put your ladder to good use with our two ladder decorating ideas. It’s an easy way to add a touch of class to your home and won’t take up much of your time.
Our first idea for decorating your staircase for Christmas, consists of candles and a eucalyptus garland. Hang the eucalyptus garland over the banister and complete the scene with a set of elegant candles. Candles never fail to elevate a room. Place an assortment of white flameless candles along the steps for a festive and cosy look.
For our second proposal, you will only need a green garland and a strip of lights. Create this elegant look by wrapping the garland and twinkling lights around the staircase banister.
We hope our ideas have helped you, now it’s time to get out the boxes and dust off the wreaths, garlands and other decorations typical of this time of the year.
