Last minute Christmas decorating tips

Left decorating your home until the very last minute? This may be the case for a lot of us, especially if we have been busy working, travelling or caring for the family.

Here are some quick and easy ideas to add festive cheer to your home...

Festive lighting

String lights are a quick and effective way to add a cosy and festive atmosphere. You can drape them over your mantel, staircase, or around doorways.

Ornaments everywhere

Place Christmas ornaments in unexpected places, like bowls, vases, or even hanging from chandeliers. This instantly adds a touch of holiday spirit.

Candles and candle holders

Arrange festive candles or candle holders on your tables and surfaces. Scented candles can also enhance the holiday ambiance.

Seasonal pillows and throws

Toss some holiday-themed pillows or throws on your sofas and chairs. It's an easy way to bring Christmas into your living space.

DIY centrepiece

Create a quick DIY centrepiece using items like pinecones, ornaments, or even a bowl of colourful holiday candies.

Wrap everyday items

For a playful touch, wrap everyday items like framed pictures or decorative items in festive wrapping paper.

Garlands and wreaths

Hang garlands or wreaths on mirrors, windows, or doors. These classic decorations instantly signal the holiday season.

Festive table settings

Set your table with holiday-themed placemats, napkins, and dinnerware. Add a small centrepiece or individual ornaments as place card holders.

Printable decorations

Print out festive images, quotes, or patterns and frame them for a quick holiday gallery wall.

Edible décor

Use edible decorations like candy canes, gingerbread cookies, or even bowls of holiday treats as decorative elements.

Scents of the season

Simmer a pot of water with cinnamon sticks, cloves, and orange peels to infuse your home with the scents of the season.

Quick outdoor décor

Place a festive welcome mat at your front door and hang a wreath or a few strands of lights to make your entryway inviting.

Instant snowflakes

Cut out paper snowflakes and tape them to windows for a simple, classic decoration.

The most important thing is to enjoy the process and have fun with your decorations. Don't stress about perfection—just let the holiday spirit shine through!
