For the Tree
Trimming the tree is one of the most time-honoured traditions of the Christmas season.
The very idea no doubt conjures up distant memories of the yearly ritual, unboxing the decorations chucked into boxes many months prior, untangling knotted lights, and meticulously placing your favourite decorations where they can be admired, hiding the rest no one sees the back of the tree anyway.
From strict themes of silver one year and gold the next, to decorations that spark memories from years of travel gone by, the decorations that don your tree’s branches drastically inform the overall vibe of your festive stylings.
From boho to eclectic, woodland to traditional, Christmas decorations are as unique as their owners, allowing plenty of real estate to show some personality and have some fun during this time.
For the Home
Beyond the tree, sprinkling festive touches around your home is a great way to transform your decor from every day to a Christmas dream.
Suppose you prefer a pared-back approach to Christmas decor, swapping out your linen for seasonally appropriate alternatives, a festive aroma and an indoor wreath will bring the Christmas spirit you desire without compromising on style.
We associate Christmas with lights, whether illuminating the exterior of a house, a tree or providing moody hues while we watch The Holiday for the umpteenth time.
And for the wreath lover, consider a native wreath and invite the outdoors in as we celebrate Christmas at home.
So, as we add festive touches around the home remember to bring the outdoors in, add a little bit of light and your favourite spicy scent.
For the Table
If you’ve been charged with hosting duties this season, your to-do list is bound to be lengthy and require rapid action to complete in time for the big day.
One item that may fall to the bottom of your list is the Christmas Day table, after all between preparing the day’s feast to perfection and catching up with your guests leaves little time to trim the table before people arrive and the day really begins.
So, to ensure your table and all its trimming look as delicious as the dishes it holds, you need these essentials.
