6 Décor Ideas For A Cheerful Christmas

A large part of the Christmas spirit is decking up your home in festive décor. It is the perfect opportunity to unleash your creativity. Here are 6 décor ideas, ranging from traditional to eclectic, to help you spread the Christmas cheer.

1. Festive Lighting

Use garlands, tinsels and other ornaments to turn the lighting in your homes into statement elements. This trick would work brilliantly with pendant lights and sconces. Ensure that none of the materials you use are flammable.

2. Fresh Colours

If you’re looking to try something new this season, shed the traditional Christmas colours and try something new. Go all-out with a rainbow-themed Christmas or white and navy blue décor for a winter wonderland theme. An all-metallic scheme is a great option for a glitzy Christmas theme. What’s great is that all of these transition really well to NYE décor!

3. Showstopping Tablescapes

All it takes is a few simple décor elements to create gorgeous tablescapes. Start with laying down a table runner and matching mats. Bring out your best dinnerware and top it off with expertly folded napkins and a bunch of dried flora. Instead of a single centrepiece, pick tiny accessories that reflect an aesthetic. For example, for a rustic theme, place dried twigs and branches in glass bottles. Or use tiny Christmas trees as centrepieces and allow your guests to decorate them as a pre-dinner activity.

4. Joy Everywhere

Take the classic route by adding garlands, wreaths and mistletoes to every room. You could also create tiny table décor for each room. Here are some ideas:

  • Create a scene with a Santa figurine, a sleigh, a miniature Christmas tree, a little house and tiny gifts.
  • Make a simple display with some pine cones and branches intertwined with ribbons or tinsels.
  • Scatter Christmas-themed tea light candles all over and frame them with wreaths, florals and ornaments.

5. Jewel Tones

Emerald, ruby, amethyst and sapphire are hues that add an understated glam to your interiors. Apart from Christmas decorations, you can add these colours to your interiors through textiles. Change up the upholstery of the couch, add a layer of bedding in these colours, or slip covers for your chairs. Accent walls in these colours make for gorgeous focal points.

6. Holiday Scents 

Scents are as powerful reminders of cherished memories. To create the warm, inviting and fuzzy ambience typical of the holidays, ensure that your home smells like Christmas. Nutmeg, cinnamon, freshly baked goodies, pine and herbs are a few scents you can focus on. Use candles or potpourri as additions to your décor and to spread the holiday fragrance through your home.
