It’s been a year that most of us will want to forget, but you can finish it on a positive note by having a fantastic Christmas at home.
To build up the excitement in advance of the big day, host some Zoom parties with your friends, involving the obligatory drinking games and some festive quizzing, all whilst you wear your best Christmas jumpers.
And if you haven’t done so already, you must get the house decorated, or else Santa will be disappointed!
Have a designated decorating day with Christmas tunes filling their air as you add Christmassy touches, like these, around the place:
An upside-down Christmas tree
No, this isn’t a joke. People are hanging Christmas trees on their ceilings this year, including celebs such as Ariana Grande.
What will probably come as a shock to Ariana and any others following this trend is that Christmas trees were first hung upside-down in the Middle Ages, so it’s not a new craze.
Upside-down Christmas trees are on sale via many online retailers, and one of them is Christmas Tree World. It will be worth posting a picture of it on social media to impress.
Dress up your stairs
One area of the house that often gets left alone when Christmas decorating is the stairs, which is a missed opportunity.
From the top to bottom of your bannister, you could have an all-natural garland running down it, either on the bannister itself or its base. Stringed garlands could also be twisted around the stair rails.
Don’t leave the steps bare. Put some Christmas boxes in the corner of each of them.
Add some Christmas wrapping to your front door
Have you got all your Christmas wrapping bought yet? If not, get yourself some fabric, a heavy duty magnet, some duct tape and a large bow so that you can also wrap your front door.
Making it look like a Christmas present is easy, and we recommend red fabric for light or white-coloured doors.
Measure the door thoroughly first and then wrap it and tape down the fabric to the door, sticking the bow to the heavy duty magnet to keep it fixed to the door.
If wrapping your front door fails to hide its unappealing look, put a new front door on your New Year shopping list. Pennine can give you a FREE quote for one.
