Advance Preparations for Christmas 2011

While it is required to do the major home decoration works for Christmas in the last week prior to the D-day, some amount work must be done beforehand to set the tone, and ready one’s house to receive the celebration season. This is nothing but cleaning the home, and getting rid of all junk that you might have accumulated over the past year since New Year celebrations. Get your house painted, and buy new furniture, upholstery and paintings, if required, so that your home looks fresh, rejuvenated and vibrant to welcome the Santa Claus. 

Indoor Decoration Tips for Christmas

Christmas Tree - One of the most important indoor Christmas item is the Christmas tree. If you can lay your hands over a real tree, cut down to size, that will be great. If not, go for an artificial tree of suitable size, and decorate it with Christmas ornaments, ribbons of different colors, including red, plus glitters, blinking lights, and a pinch of artificial snow. Go for cotton if you can’t find anything to replicate the ‘snowy’ looks.

Christmas Flowers - Have flowers all round your house. If you can manage mistletoes and poinsettias, the traditional Christmas flowers, somehow, it can’t get any better. Floating petals in a large bowl of water is also a good idea to draw eyeballs.

Christmas Table - Stack Christmas books on one side of the table. For the visitors, let it be an educating experience as well. A collage of Christmas greeting cards, pictures, teddy bears dressed in Christmas stockings, colorful Xmas candles add to the splendor. Give special emphasis on decorating the Christmas Table, around which all the action is going to happen. 

Outdoor Decoration Tips for Christmas 2011

What is going on inside must reflect on the outside as well. Impressed by the Christmas outdoor decorations, you guests must be encouraged to step into your home. Use strands of glowing/flickering electric bulbs (or LEDs) to illuminate the exterior of your home as well as trees in the courtyard, if any. Don’t forget to adorn your doors welcoming the guests with beautiful wreaths. If possible, try to hang small Christmas ornaments on house trees to make it more appealing.
