The holiday season is here with Christmas just round the corner. It’s that time of the year when along with the festive mood come the Christmas trees, the glitzy ornaments, the Christmas presents and family parties. Through all of life’s hustle-bustle, you need to take the time out and bring the festive mood into your home too. Here are a few simple and easy ways to make your home decked up for the Christmas atmosphere:
-Get the Christmas tree out to get in the holiday mood. Going for an artificial tree means that you can use it year after year. Use the glitzy decorations and the silver or golden garlands and bead chains to add to the magic. You can use fairy lights to light up your tree, staircase railings, room dividers or the front yard. There is nothing like lights to make everything look festive!
-A Christmas wreath at the front door ushers in the holiday spirit and is one of the easiest ways to create the festive mood. You can follow it up with smaller wreaths on the inner doors too. Artificial wreaths can be re-used over the years and come in all shapes and sizes.
-Dress-up your dinner table with festive tableware. Yuletide-themed flower arrangements and some red decorative candles on the table center would complete the cozy, celebratory look for your guests. And if you are really short on time, just changing the tablecloth to a cherry coloured one would also add to the celebratory look.
-Changing the bathroom and kitchen towels as well as the bed-sheets to green and red colored ones with yuletide motifs, would also add to the Christmas cheer at home.
-Other simple ways to bring in the cheer is to dim the lights and go with candlelight for a change. Play some Christmas music including some good old classic songs that everyone can join in singing.
-If you have the time, you could give the perfect touch to the festive air by adding the aroma of home-baked cookies or fresh tea scones. Set them up in pretty lined baskets for your family and friends to nibble on.
Finally, Christmas is all about sharing love with family and friends. Large spacious homes like the ‘Under the Sun’ villas at Devanahalli in Bangalore offer the ideal setting for family get-togethers in the privacy of your own personal terraced homes with large gardens.
