Tart up your Tree for Christmas

If you're looking for home decorating tips to celebrate the festive season, you're in luck. Here are some fun and creative ways to make your home sparkle this Christmas.

Pick a colour scheme

One simple way to streamline your theme is to select a colour scheme to run throughout your decorations. You could go for the traditional red and green colours, the more sophisticated gold and silver, or think outside the box and go wild with bright colours to celebrate the summer.

You can carry this colour theme through from your tree to your Christmas day napkins, ornaments and even your wreath. Think silver snowflake baubles on the tree, glistening metallic napkins and a chic twig wreath spray painted with a dazzling shade.

Get the kids involved

Provide your kids with some creative craft ideas along with plenty of supplies and let them get into the festive spirit. You'll be surprised with what they can do when they're given a bit of help! Ask them to create decorations to add to the tree or design place cards for your party guests.

This is also a great way to keep your kids entertained and out of your hair while you deal with preparing your Christmas menu and gifts.

Light it up

Fairy lights can quickly turn any space into a whimsical wonderland. Don't just limit these twinkling beauties to your tree, though - extend them to your living room for a magical feature wall. If you have an outdoor living area you can wrap them around your fence or picnic table to light up the night - just make sure you buy special outside varieties!
