A few ideas for enjoying winter flora & fauna
Posted on 12th October 2021
Trimming up your home for the festive season can mean different things to different people. Some love a riot or colour and tinsel, others a more low-key approach to acknowledging the season in their home. Whatever your taste though, we take a look at some of the most popular ideas this year and ways in which you can bring the festive feeling indoors with ease.
The humble wreath has enjoyed something of a resurgence in recent years and this year is no exception. Whether it’s a traditional one that has flora and fauna, a collection of baubles, present wrapping bows, or one that you have made yourself, they look hugely appealing, be it on a front door to welcome guests, as a wall decoration or as a table centre, perhaps with a few candles or fairy lights added too.
Time for a tree
The tradition of having a bedecked Christmas tree in your home continues to be one of the most popular ways of decorating your home and with a variety of shapes and sizes, real and fake available finding a tree to suit shouldn’t be too much trouble. LED twig trees are a stylish, yet simple option this season, tree collars and skirts continue to grow in popularity to hide the functional tree stand and colour trends for tree decorations such as metallic, white, and gold and blue are tipped to be top in 2021.
Home made with love
As people across the nation look forward to welcoming family and friends into their homes once more, the trend for more simple and home made decorations and table accessories is hugely popular. From dramatic mantelpiece arrangements, to simple place card holders for the dinner table, there is so much that can be made, even if you have relatively little experience or are working to a budget. One thing is for certain though, the satisfaction of doing it yourself will be worth the effort.
Adding a few fairy lights to your home can also bring some festive warmth and sparkle to your home and with so many different types now available they can be used in a variety of ways. A collection of old jars and wine bottles with fairy lights in and some fir cones and holly can make a great table top arrangement. Or, you can simply wrap them around your banister, wind down the centre of your table or stuff a vase full of them!
We hope we’ve inspired you to enjoy decorating your home this Christmas.
