Whether you work at Black Tie Moving or are a stay-at-home parent, it’s time to think about how you can create a perfect cozy atmosphere in your home this Christmas.
You don’t have to spend countless hours of planning when it comes to decorating this holiday. Nor do you have to shell out thousands of dollars. Planning a cozy house for Christmas can be quite simple as long as you know what you’re looking for.
Here are some tips on how to create the perfect cozy atmosphere this holiday season!
1. Try Something New
This holiday season, switch it up a little bit! It’s always fun to get creative and bring in new decorations to add to your collection of Christmas pieces. You can choose to make your own or purchase a décor that isn’t the normal for you.
Adding in something new each year will keep the excitement going and another element of Christmas to look forward to. After all, even your favorite snowman mantlepiece may get a little old after a while. This year, try out something you never have before when it comes time to deck the halls.
2. Candles, Incense, Oh My!
Nothing says Christmas like the smell of pine, cookies, and peppermint! Fragrance is key to setting your very own cozy holiday atmosphere at home. There are plenty of options available in December when it comes to festive scents to bring into your home.
Candles and incense also provide that perfect touch of soft lighting as they flicker in the night. You can use them as their very own decorations or incorporate them into pieces you already have. The options are truly endless with candles and incense. Have fun with it!
3. Pick a Theme
Are you more of a Santa home or do you try to stay away from what’s considered more “childlike”? Either way, it’s always best that you pick a theme and stick with it each year. This way, you don’t overwhelm your house with too much.
Websites, like Pinterest, are great resources to use if you’re stuck on what holiday theme you want to go with. There certainly is an abundance to choose from during Christmastime! If you already have a theme picked out, you are certain to find some more ideas for what it is you’re looking for.
4. Add Personal Touches
While you may not want your entire house to be decorated with homemade finger paintings and cotton ball snowmen, a personal touch here and there is perfect. If you don’t have kids to do the work for you, consider crafting one of your own decorations this year.
Tutorials are available online to paint your own Christmas landscape or craft up a fun, festive ornament. Spend some time looking at your options and go for it! If you do have children, it would be a great activity to make some decorations with them. Each year, you could keep up with the tradition. After all, the holidays are all about quality time with those we love.
