It’s the time of year where homes are full of life and colour as well as lots of shiny tinsel, baubles and lights. As most of us would’ve noticed, our Christmas decorations bling and sparkle in the home to add some drama and also freshen up a dull space.
With less than a week to go until the big day, how organized are you? Is the house brimming with festive sights and smells or is the tree almost destroyed by the cat who spends every waking moment trying to climb it, the festive decorations and Christmas lights are still in a box (somewhere) in the garage and you’re starting to panic about how you’re going to feed 15 people for Christmas lunch. If you’re all organized – well done – and if you’re feeling stretched and swamped, here are a few last minute Christmas decorating tips to get your home in the festive spirit.
Not sure if you’ve been naughty or nice this year? Or simply too snowed-under to put together your Christmas wish list? To get you thinking about what you would like for Christmas here’s our Nick Scali Christmas gifts ideas list which contains some solid classic furniture as well as some new fun pieces all designed to get you in the Christmas groove.
The traditional time for putting up Christmas decorations is December 1, but if you’re like most of us and have been swamped by shopping, planning, working and the odd festive party it’s absolutely OK to put up the decorations in the week prior.
