How To Get Your Conservatory Looking and Feeling Christmassy

Where is the time going? Father Christmas will be heading down our chimneys in less than a weeks’ time. So, as well as having the bulk of your Christmas shopping done, you should also already have your house decorated for the big day.

Fans of the festive period will go all out to make their home Christmassy, with fairy lights dangling from their roofline, a wreath hanging from the front door, and of course, the customary Christmas tree.

If you’re one of these people, you mustn’t miss out your conservatory.

Can you think of a better or more luxurious place to have the turkey dinner? We certainly can’t. So, if that’s where you’re planning to have yours, give it a festive feel.

As an established conservatory supplier, Mitchell Glass has the best advice on how you can do it.

Make your dinner table the centrepiece

There will be audible gasps from your guests when they walk in if you make your dinner table look all Christmassy.

Cover the table with a nicely ironed pure white tablecloth, put out your best cutlery, crockery and glassware, and then add any of following to it:

  • Christmas-themed dinner mats
  • Scented candles in the middle (a cinnamon or gingerbread aroma says Christmas)
  • Table garland (with berries, pine cones, ribbons…you get the idea)
  • Crackers (the pulling type, although cheese and crackers afterwards are an idea)

Use Santa’s attire as the inspiration for your rugs and throws

The Big Man (Santa) always likes to wear red and white, so why not imitate his look by going out and buying some red and white coloured rugs and throws for laying on the floor and putting on any sofas and chairs.

Your guests can cuddle under the throws at night when you all settle down to watch some festive TV and play some party games.

Saying that, your conservatory should automatically feel nice and warm. If it doesn’t, you need one of our replacement roofs in the New Year.

Blast out some Christmas tunes

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Do you love the gruffness of Shane MacGowan’s voice in a “Fairytale of New York” or are you more of a Mariah fan and find that “All I Want for Christmas Is You” always gets you in a Christmassy mood?

Either way, take a portable speaker into the conservatory and have your Christmas playlist provide the day’s soundtrack to get the whole household full of festive cheer while you eat, drink and be merry.


If you don’t own a conservatory but have fallen for the idea of spending next Christmas in one, arrange an appointment with Mitchell Glass for an informal chat.
