How to Get a House Decorated for Christmas

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! If you are anything like us, the second it turns November 1, our Santa hats are on, and our fireplace is doing its work. We adore Christmas: its ability to unite people worldwide, the time taken to step back from life and share love and good food, and the festive spirit and bright lights in the air. Despite many’s absolute adoration for Christmas, it can also be a stressful time trying to set up the house in a way that represents just how excited we are for the time of year. Luckily, we are here to take your stress away.

The magic of Christmas is all about creating a space that embraces joy, warmth, and togetherness.

Read on to have a holly, jolly Christmas— it is the best time of the year!

the Christmas tree

Before you dive into adorning your tree, you’ll want to consider the tree you’ll bring home. Do you opt for a real fire’s fresh, invigorating scent, an artificial tree’s eco-friendly and reusable beauty, or a charming tabletop version for a smaller space?

Once you’ve chosen your canvas, it’s time to transform it into a masterpiece of holiday wonder. You’ll begin by adorning it with ornaments, lights, and garlands that reflect your chosen theme. If you’re aiming for a traditional look, classic red and green baubles paired with white lights are a classic choice.

Christmas lights

While familiar with the tradition of wrapping strings of lights around your tree, consider going above and beyond. Drape them along staircases and railings, hang them from ceilings to create a whimsical atmosphere.

Don’t limit their enchantment to the interior of your home. Extend their reach to your windows, mantels, and outdoor spaces.

Garlands and wreaths

Whether you’re draping garlands along banisters, mantels, or doorways or hanging wreaths from your front door or within various rooms, these versatile decorations are where the season’s magic is woven into your home. They act as the backdrop against which your other ornaments and decor shine.

Garlands can be lush and green, adorned with twinkling lights, or decorative with ornaments, while wreaths can range from traditional to artistic, welcoming guests and family members with their beauty.

Artificial snow and glitter

These magical substances can turn your home into a sparkling, snowy sanctuary, regardless of the weather outside. Start by gently dusting your Christmas tree and ornaments with artificial snow, creating the illusion of fresh-fallen flurries.

You can also sprinkle glitter on wreaths, garlands, and even your window sills for a touch of glistening magic. These seemingly small details make a difference in recreating the ethereal beauty of a snowy landscape within your home.

Candles and aromas

Lighting scented candles with fragrances like cinnamon, vanilla, or pine fills your home with the delightful aromas of the season. The moment the scent wafts through your home, it’s as if the essence of holiday baking, cozy fires, and fresh evergreens come to life.

If you prefer a more natural approach, consider simmering a potpourri on the stove with ingredients like orange peels, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. The aroma of these simmering concoctions creates a symphony of holiday scents that envelop your home with a magical sensory experience.

Elf on the shelf

For families, the holiday season is a time of enchantment and anticipation, and creating Christmas magic with an Elf on the Shelf can be an entertaining tradition.

The Elf becomes a whimsical visitor who moves around the house, hiding in different spots and engaging in mischievous adventures. It becomes a source of wonder and delight for children, who wake up each day in anticipation of discovering the Elf’s latest escapade.

Another tradition that adds an element of excitement is the creation of a “Christmas treasure hunt.” Hide small surprises, clues, or notes throughout your home, leading your family on a journey of discovery.
