Christmas is filled with fun activities and one that tops many people’s lists is putting the decorations up.

From competing with neighbours to create the best-looking home during the festive season to making your house feel all cosy on the inside, it comes as no surprise that the Christmas decorations industry is worth over 7.6 billion U.S. dollars worldwide.

If you’re getting ready to put your decorations up, then we implore you to go big this year. This will boost the Christmas spirit in your household and let you impress your friends or family members with an epic set of decorations. 

So, if you’re going big this year but don’t know how to do it, we can help. Our guide is filled with essential tips for achieving the most festive look for your home, so read on to learn more and wow onlookers. 

Outdoor lights 

Start by adding some stunning outdoor Christmas lights to transform your home into a Santa’s grotto that everyone can enjoy. Warm Christmas icicle lights can make a real statement and you could try adding animated lights as well for a unique style. 

If you want to go all out, outdoor projectors can shine snowy effects on your home to take it to a whole new level. 

A magnificent tree

The tree becomes the focal point of your home’s interior during the holiday season, so take time to get it right. Make sure you add the right amount of fairy lights to it and place your favourite baubles all around it. Try to get your kids involved in this decorating too as it’s a fun and safe way to bond and make memorable traditions.

An eclectic interior

Maximalism is the best way to go big this year and adding touches of Christmas around your home is a must. Stairways can be wrapped in fairy lights, mantle pieces can be covered in tinsel and each bedroom can have a miniature tree as well to spread Christmas cheer all around your home.

It’s not just about what you see either. Give your nose the riches of Christmas with candles and air fresheners that are Christmas-scented. Cinnamon, pine, orange and gingerbread are all incredible options and may help to raise the festive levels of your home. 

Christmas table 

When the big day arrives, everyone will be gathered around the table as you share memories that last a lifetime. That’s why your table should be well-decorated too. Add beautiful garlands, tall candles and quirky tableware for a bold statement that your family are sure to love. You could also buy special Christmas-themed plates, bowls and glasses to bring an extra special touch to dinner.
