Chilly winds, sounds of carols in the air, the scent of fresh, sweet pine – Christmas is just hovering upon us! One of the most celebrated holidays of the year, Christmas is a time for love, giving, festivities, and joy. Now more than ever, after enduring extended periods of lockdown, it’s even more important to celebrate the holiday with the people we treasure the most.
Even if you decide to keep your gatherings small, it’s always a good idea to go all out on your décor to lift up the family’s spirit. Here are some tips to help you get around with it.
Focus on Coziness
Winter is officially here, and with nights getting longer and colder, more indoor time for families is to be expected. This can be a bummer for many people, but it doesn’t have to feel that way. The key is making sure that you all retire to a home that is warm and comfy, allowing you to take things slow and relax fully during the cold months.
If you’re thinking about updating a piece of furniture, consider replacing your sofa just in time for the holidays. Make sure to add blankets and lots of throws to keep you warm, just like this gray couch with throw pillows from Ava’s Attic.
Amplify Your Lighting
It’s always a great idea to keep your home bright, but lighting up your home is especially recommended during the Christmas season when the darkness is longer. Surrounding your tree with string lights and decorating with lanterns are just some quick and easy ideas to bring in some holiday cheer.
If those are not enough to illuminate your home, consider adding some accent lights to darker corners such as bathrooms, stairways, and alcoves.
Look Into Christmas-Themed Décors
There’s more to Christmas decorating than just putting up your tree. Christmas is one of those holidays when it is just impossible to go overboard, and you won’t be judged for filling every nook and cranny with Christmas-themed pieces.
From Santa to reindeers, from wreaths to stockings, you will never run out of décors to choose from. If you still can’t get enough, take it up a notch and bring home these nutcrackers from Ava’s Attic.
Make Your Table More Festive
Christmas is the season for family reunions, and what better way to prep your home for the holidays than dressing up your table, or perhaps investing in a newer, larger one to accommodate all of your guests? You don’t even necessarily have to spend a lot. Ava’s Attic is a treasure trove of gorgeous and high-quality consigned pieces, such as this pedestal table that might just give your dining room a whole new appeal this Christmas.
Of course, while we’re at it, don’t forget to bring home this Fitz & Floyd place setting to complete your Christmas look!
