"Christmas is not a date. It is a state of mind." Mary Ellen Chase

I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner! This is our fourth Christmas in our home and it’s fair to say that I have become the self-proclaimed Head of Decorations. Over the years I’ve managed to gather quite an impressive selection of decorations for any occasion. It’s always so much fun exploring and comparing tonnes of websites and then opening packages full of sparkly items. The cherry on the cake is seeing my family and friends’ reaction to all of the festive decor in our home.
Christmas is fast approaching, and the next thing you know, you’ve got New Year’s Eve knocking on your doorstep. If you want to have the best and most rocking festive home décor it’s time to start thinking about it for the big day.
For those of you who were asking for Christmas decor inspo, I hope this post will make you feel inspired to make your home festive just in time for this Christmas season! I’ve rounded up some of my favourite online finds and tips for the decor that will make your home look all Christmassy, yet modern and cozy!
It’s all in the detail!

OUTDOOR DECORATIONS

When you think of Christmas, one of the first images to spring to mind is probably a Christmas tree, covered in twinkly decorations, lights and tinsel. However, outdoor decorations are becoming more and more popular, from twinkling lights and charming reindeers, to beautiful pre-lit trees that you can show off to all your neighbours.

CHRISTMAS GARLANDS

Christmas time means garlands all over the place. When you see them hanging in shopping malls and your neighbours’ houses, you know the holiday season has arrived.
Since I was a little girl I dreamt about having staircases decorated with frosty garlands and finally my dream has come true.

Don’t forget to buy a few Christmas Direct Garland Ties (here) to ensure your garland is securely attached to your staircases, balustrades and shelving.

CHRISTMAS WREATHS

Christmas wreaths are a beautiful decoration for your home that can really show off your true holiday cheer.

LIGHTS

Who doesn’t like the warm glow of traditional fairy lights!?
Did you know?
Christmas trees displayed publicly and illuminated with electric lights became popular as early as the beginning of the 20th century.
The illuminated Christmas tree became established in the UK during Queen Victoria’s reign.
In 1881, the Savoy Theatre, London was the first building in the world to be lit entirely by electricity.

CHRISTMAS DIFFUSERS

I love the feeling of entering the house that smells like a forest. Diffusers are the perfect solution to recreate the scent of fresh pine cones. Think gingerbread, roast chestnuts, open fire, cinnamon and many more.

POT POURRI

Fragrant potpourri has been around for centuries, adding the lovely aromas of dried herbs, flowers and spices to the house’s ambience.

In the days leading up to Christmas, it sometimes feels like the holiday can’t come soon enough. So while you’re counting down the days, curl up by the fire, have a cup of a ginger spiced latte, and get yourself lost in the world of festive candle scents, diffusers and pot pourris!
