How To Add Some Fashionable Festive Touches To Your Home


We’ve all come to terms with the fact that this Christmas will be slightly different, and we’re not going to let it stop us having plenty of festive fun. 

There will be many hours spent on Zoom having pre-Christmas celebrations and catch-ups, and our homes will be decorated a bit more extravagantly than normal. 

Putting a festive spin on your house can really lift your spirits, so get your decorating day organised, if you haven’t already, and go all out with your decks. 

Blow Santa away on Christmas Day with these 3 hot ways of making your home look all Christmassy:

Hang the Christmas tree upside-down

You’d think we’d been at the mulled wine early, but this is a genuine trend for 2020, with many Christmas trees hanging from ceilings in homes. 

Ariana Grande has one in hers, as do many other celebs and members of the general public. You might not know too that it was popular to do this in the Middle Ages. 

Have a look online and you will find many places selling upside-down Christmas trees, including Christmas Tree World.

Light up your staircase

Fairy lights are a must at Christmas, and you could have them lining up the route from the bottom to the top of your stairs. 

Do so with an all-natural garland equipped with them that you can either have running on top of the bannister, or all along the base of it. The spindles can also have small garlands twisted around them. 

And finish off by adding little Christmassy boxes to the steps.

Wrap your door like a Christmas present 

Give the door wreath a year off and instead wrap your front door with fabric and a big red bow on it so that it looks like a present. 

You don’t need to be a skilled craftsperson to do it. Just buy some fabric, a large bow, duct tape and a heavy duty magnet.

Cut the fabric to the relevant size, and tape it down once it’s wrapped to the door, keeping the bow secure to it with the heavy duty magnet.

When wrapping your door, you may come to the conclusion that it is past its best and a new front door is warranted. Mitchell Glass would be happy to organise this for you. Just ask for a FREE quote.
