With everybody starting to decorate for Christmas I thought I’d kick off Blogmas with a post on how to decorate your home for Christmas. I always love seeing other peoples Christmas decor and I always want to know where they get everything from. Decorating for Christmas is probably my favourite part of it all, its the lights, the tinsel and the ornaments. It just makes that time of year so exciting.
I think this year Christmas is even more important because we haven’t had anything else to look forward to. 2020 has had a great impact on our mental health and I think we need Christmas as a welcomed distraction. Which is another reason why I decided to do Blogmas.
GO WITH A COLOUR SCHEME
If you’re anything like me then you like a colour scheme for your Christmas decor. As a child my mom used to just let us throw every colour in the rainbow at our Christmas tree, it looked horrific but we had so much fun doing what we wanted with it. She often tells me its her favourite kind of tree!Now times have changed and we tend to stick with a colour scheme. We have a fake tree that we use every year and tend to stick with the same colour combinations. Our living room is a pale green/cream/brown room, so we tend to stick with golds, reds and browns for our tree.
To me there is nothing more satisfying than colours that just compliment one another!
GATHER CHRISTMAS DECOR INSPIRATION
If you are really stuck in trying to figure out how to decorate your home this Christmas then take to the internet and do some research! Pinterest is the best place to go to find inspiration for anything. I gather my inspiration for a-lot of things from looking at images, this is because I’m such a visual person.
There is always ideas out there waiting to be discovered by you!
DO CHRISTMAS DECOR ON THE FLY
As I mentioned earlier, as kids my mom let me and my siblings go to town on the tree. And I am echoing doing just that! If you prefer to do it that way then do it! Christmas is about having fun and not living by rules. Go crazy and pick a gold tree and decorate it with yellow decorations, who cares!
I know I mentioned how I am, and how I like colour schemes and making sure things match. But in the grand scheme of things, it’s not really important. Its Christmas after all! As long as you had fun doing it, it doesn’t matter what it looks like.
How do you decorate for Christmas? Do you follow a scheme or do you just wing it?
Thanks so much for reading. Can’t wait to hear about how you decorate over the holiday season!
