The silly season is well and truly upon us, and nothing is merrier than spreading some Christmas cheer around your home! If you haven’t already, it’s time to deck your halls with some festive style. In today’s blog, C&G highlight some of our best tips for decorating your home over the holiday season.
O Christmas Tree!
The tree traditionally comes first when decorating! Whether you opt for the real thing or a low-maintenance artificial one, make sure you measure up. You don’t want a tree too small that it makes your space look unfurnished but too large that it’s overcrowded.
With 2021 on the horizon and Christmas flashing before our eyes, the big old question is when should you take the tree down? According to Good House Keeping, enjoy it as long as you like or stick to tradition by taking it down on the 5th of 6th of January.
Everyone’s taste is different, which is especially true when it comes to decorating for Christmas. Whether you’re nuts for tinsel, love a good light show or believe less is more, this Better Homes and Gardens has the answers for decorating and sprucing your tree to perfection.
