Getting Your Home Christmas Ready
It’s that time of the year again, the season of feasting, drinking, and spending time with your loved ones! With lockdown restrictions easing, allowing for guests in a home, it’s time to make your home extra magical for your friends and family.
Here are things you need in your home to make it feel like you’re spending Christmas in a winter wonderland!
1. Christmas Tree
The main star of the show, so much so that sometimes we want to keep it up for the whole year! As it is probably the biggest Christmas décor item you will have in your home, and something you will pull out every year, you want to choose a tree that is classic and versatile.
The classic green Christmas tree never fails to impress, and you can practically throw on any coloured bauble on there. If you want to step it up a notch in turning your home into a winter wonderland, white trees are perfect! They create the illusion of snow being right in your home. They look especially classy when styled with gold décor. Of course, if pink Christmas trees are your thing, go for it!
Candles bring a sense of warmth and coziness to a home and make it smell like freshly baked cookies every day. If you aren’t a fan of cookies, there are so many other Christmas candle options at stores like Bath and Body Works. Comforting scents like marshmallow fireside and frosted cranberry will transform an atmosphere into a winter wonderland! Not to mention, they are the perfect coffee table and bedside table toppers!

3. Christmas Styling Decor
Look for small styling items like pinecones, mini-Christmas trees, and Christmas themed ornaments like reindeers. Scatter them around your home, perhaps on your kitchen bench, tv cabinet, or hallway tables to greet your guests. Speaking of welcoming guests, don’t forget about your front door! It is the first thing guests see, so put up a classic wreath and even a fun doormat to welcome them!
These decors are small, but they spread the Christmas magic around your home!
One of the best traditions about an Aussie Christmas is scavenging around for homes with dramatic Christmas displays. With fake snow in the air, it almost feels like winter. Lighting makes all the difference and will bring a spark of festivity into your home every night. Weave some string or fairy lights around your décor (yes, don’t forget about your Christmas tree), and it is guaranteed your guests will have a magical time!
5. Don’t forget about the dining set-up!
It’s not Christmas without a big hearty feast with your family and friends! But, to elevate your guests’ dining experience, your delicious cooking should be placed upon a festive dining table set up that celebrates the season of love and giving.
Your dining table set-up style should reflect a similar style to your home interiors and décor. Who said the Hamptons interior style couldn’t be festive too?! The photo sourced from Pinterest shows that they have pulled in the classic blue used in Hamptons style to the napkins and table runner. They have used pine tree leaves for the main touch of festivity!
Try using candles, pine cones, baubles and matching cutlery to add the Christmas touch to your dining table!
