Let’s face it – life can get pretty hectic, and it’s hard to always find the time to be with family. That’s what makes the holiday season so special! During the holidays, families are brought together and crazy schedules are put aside so that holiday traditions can remain intact. This year, enjoy all of those timeless traditions spent with family even more by creating a festive atmosphere in your home.
Here are some simple ways you can enhance your favorite holiday activities:
Watching holiday movies
Instead of watching your favorite holiday programs in the dark, string up some lights in the living room. Your family only watches these movies once a year, so it’s important to make the night feel even more special! Whether you choose to hang up colored or white lights, they’ll instantly give the room a cheery look.
Enjoying a holiday meal
Enhance a holiday meal by decorating the table to look festive! Depending on what you prefer, you could cover the table with a decorative holiday tablecloth. Or, you can opt for no tablecloth and place a large Pine and Berry Centerpiece in the middle instead. To complete the look, set the table with white plates and red cloth napkins.
Ah, baking Christmas cookies. Is there really anything better? Nothing comes to mind! Assuming you don’t eat all of the cookie dough (we won’t tell anyone!), you can present the delicious-looking cookies on holiday plates for Santa, or on beautiful glass platters for guests to enjoy.
Decorating the tree
Before hanging ornaments and covering the Christmas tree with tinsel, decorate the rest of the room first. Then, when the room already looks like Christmas, turn on the holiday music and enjoy decorating the tree as the final touch. Decorating the tree with festive décor while listening to music will put your family in the holiday spirit.
For kids who celebrate Christmas, opening presents is often their favorite part of the holidays. Make these moments even more memorable by making a fire while the present opening commences. It’ll instantly make the room feel cozier and enhance the warm atmosphere of your home.
