Where has the year gone? We can hardly believe we’re midway through December already and Christmas is just around the corner! If, like many of us here at TREE, you’ve been just a little too busy to make your home feel festive, worry not! Here we’re sharing some of our favourite quick-and-easy ways to turn your space into a festive and cosy Winter Wonderland – proving it’s never too late to add that Christmassy feeling.
1. Open your doors to a very Merry Christmas
When family and friends are coming over for the holidays, you’ll want them to feel the Christmas spirit right from the moment they arrive at your doorstep. Welcome your guests and create an inviting entrance by hanging a beautiful wreath. Our favourites are those made from all-natural materials for a rustic Christmas look. Pinecones, seeds pods and driftwood look wonderful in their natural state but also look stunning when given a white frosting or a touch of gold or silver sparkle.

2. Oh, Christmas tree
Christmas tree arrived but still waiting to be transformed into a festive centrepiece? The trick to easily decorating a beautiful tree is to firstly decide on the look and feeling you want to create. If tinsel doesn’t tickle your fancy and you’re seeking a grown-up, understated look, opt for matte textures such as bone china, and keep to a monochromatic palette to keep things simple yet refined. Or, for those who love rustic interiors, select ornaments crafted from natural materials, in warm tones of browns and golds for an inviting, homely feel. And if you can’t decide on a single style or colour, fret not – mix and match ornaments in cheerful designs and various hues for a truly eclectic, characterful tree.

3. The gift of (beautifully wrapped) giving
A Christmas tree isn’t complete without plenty of gifts tucked underneath! We love the natural yet chic look of kraft paper, which provides a beautiful base for adding patterned and textured ribbons in classic Christmassy reds, greens and golds. Give your presents a creative touch with festive toppers such as a characterful santa ornament, which can also double as an extra gift for your loved ones to add to their own tree during the holidays!

4. Final festive flair
With a welcoming entrance, Christmas tree fully decorated and the presents wrapped it’s time to add the last bits and pieces to transform your space into a true winter wonderland. Adding Christmas characters around the house will put a smile on the faces of all your family; whether it’s placing a set of small decorative Santas around the dining table as place card holders for each of your guests, or perching a snowman on your coffee table or sideboard, these fun and cheerful pieces will instantly ring in some Christmas spirit in time for all your holiday gatherings.
