C&G’s Guide to Styling Your Home for Christmas

The silly season is finally here – which means it’s time to deck your halls with festivities. In today’s blog, C&G share our top tips on decorating your home this Christmas, from sprucing up your tree to knowing when to stop with the tinsel!

Choosing Your Tree

The first place to start is choosing your tree. Whether you’re opting for the real thing or a low-maintenance artificial, make sure you’re careful with sizing. A tree that’s too small can make your space look unfinished, but one too large can crowd small spaces. Be sure to measure up before you go out tree shopping!

Selecting Your Decorations

Everyone’s Christmas tree taste is different – maybe you’re nuts for tinsel and as many lights as you can fit, or perhaps you prefer a more minimal approach. Try to choose a colour scheme, and find shapes and ornaments that complement each other. This Better Homes and Gardens guide will have you hanging ornaments like the pros.

Small Festive Touches

Whether you opt for a sprig of mistletoe at your door, a wreath or some festive scatter cushions, adding subtle hints of Christmas around the home can ignite the holiday spirit without being over the top. Kmart’s range of Christmas cushions can brighten up your home on a budget, and Myer’s range of festive home decor could be the finishing touch you’ve been looking for. If you’re looking for a wreath for your front door, why not make your own at a wreath making workshop? Melbourne Flower School runs a 2.5 hour intensive session, while Flowers by Cassie offers a 90 minute session in Cheltenham. 

The Christmas Table

Don’t forget your dining table when it comes to decorating – that’s where the magic and feasting will happen!
