Our guide to creating beautiful festive home decor

With the festive countdown now on, the next few days are the perfect time to add last-minute Christmas touches and decor to your home. With a little creativity and some simple DIY projects, you can transform your living space into a winter wonderland. Your local British Garden Centres stores will provide some inspiration and fun and easy ways to create beautiful yuletide ideas for your home.

Deck your halls

Start by visiting your local British Garden Centre store for string lights, ornaments, and garlands. Consider decorating your front door for Christmas and create a welcoming entrance with a festive wreath on your front door. Your local store has some great starter wreath kits for you to decorate. Why not use evergreen branches from your garden, pinecones, colourful ribbons, and matching baubles to customise your wreath and give it a personal touch?

Illuminate your home

Brighten up your home with the warm glow of LED string lights. Wrap them around your bannisters, drape them over your mantlepiece, or create a twinkling backdrop around your doorframes for your family gatherings. With a vast collection of colours and styles available in store. Our selection of lights can add a magical ambience to any room.

Table centrepieces

Create a stunning centrepiece for your dining table using seasonal elements like candles, berries, fresh flowers, and evergreen sprays. Incorporating these natural elements will bring a touch of elegance to your dining table for the big Christmas meal. Get creative and use small lanterns or indoor pots to complete the look.

Festive table settings

Set a festive table for your holiday meals by mixing and matching your dinnerware with seasonal accents. Consider using decorative chargers, cloth napkins, and place cards to elevate your table settings. Adding small touches like personalized name cards or festive napkin rings can make your table feel extra special.

Cosy lounge

Add festive throw pillows and blankets to your living room to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Choose pillows and blankets in rich, warm colours and festive patterns to complement your existing decor. These simple additions can instantly transform your space for comfort and warmth over the Christmas break.

Embrace Christmas scents

During the winter season, lighting up seasonal candles and diffusers can create an inviting and festive atmosphere in your home. Look for warming and festive fragrances, such as sensational cinnamon, rich fig, spicy ginger, refreshing eucalyptus, woody pine, zesty orange, and sweet pomegranate to fill your living space with a soothing and comforting atmosphere.
