Decorate your Fireplace this Christmas
There is nothing cosier than snuggling up with loved ones in front of the fireplace after the Christmas festivities. Make your fireplace the focal point of your celebrations with some of our decorative ideas that family and friends will love.
When you think of Christmas, evergreens, pine, and holly berries immediately spring to mind and are synonymous with the festive season. The easiest way to incorporate this into your decor is to use a garland as a base to line your fireplace’s mantel.
To make it unique to your home, invest in a plain garland and add your accessories to it such as baubles, tinsels, and gingerbread or candy cane to match your colour scheme. For scent, why not try mixing in cinnamon, berries, dried oranges, and pinecones to bring the perfume of Christmas into your home?
Why not your fireplace traditional and hang the family’s stockings from the mantel, ready for the big day? It always looks chic to use stockings that match the colours of your Christmas colour scheme or why not use the classic colours of red and green for nostalgia?
British Garden Centres stock stockings to suit all interiors so that you can fill the stockings with presents and treats as Christmas comes around!
With your mantel now decorated, don’t forget your floor too for festive feel. Why not dress your hearth with a heat-resistant rug with a fair isle or Nordic design to complete the look? Even a plain-coloured rug to match your interiors would work just as well and make your home look even cosier and inviting over the festive season.
Lanterns and Lighting
Why not make your fireplace glow even more by incorporating LED lanterns or LED lights into your Christmas fireplace? A cluster of different-sized lanterns will make a statement on your hearth and create a romantic scene with lit pillar candles.
Alternatively, candles provide an elegant way to add light and interest to the mantelpiece, alongside your favourite Christmas cards and photos.
Why not dress your mantelpiece with some miniature brush Christmas trees? Available in many shades to suit any festive colourway and group together to create an eye-catching winter forest.
If you are feeling nostalgic, why not decorate your mantelpiece with tiny Christmas village buildings that we remember seeing in garden centres during the holidays?
