Christmas decorations can come in many different shapes, styles and sizes. Each family has its own meaning for Christmas, and celebrates the season in different ways that are personal to them.
Some families love to try new and creative things. Many decorations are fun and exotic, filled with many different colours and contemporary features – however there are also families who appreciate the beauty and magic and tradition, and who seek regal and elegant Christmas decorations for their home.
There is nothing more beautiful than a perfectly decorated home at Christmas. It is a wonderful experience to enter home, from the front garden path, through the front door, and then through each room of the decorated house. The smells, flavours and textures are amazing, and conjure up feelings of home, peace and serenity.
If you spend time decorating your home with regal and elegant Christmas decorations, it will certainly be noticed. You will be complimented for your exquisite taste, and respect for the meaning behind the season. The good news is, there are many different decorations that you can choose from, to add magic into your home. All you need is some information and inspiration, and your own home can be turned into a Christmas paradise.
Wreaths and garlands
Every front door needs a wreath or garland that is beautifully shaped and cared for. It is a symbol for all who enter the home, that this is a place of peace, family and celebration. There are many different styles of wreaths, so you will always have a wide selection to choose from, however if you are looking for an elegant one, spend a little bit more money and purchase one that has been crafted with love and care.
An elegant wreath will be perfectly symmetrical, and sit neatly on the front door of a home. You can also add them throughout your house, on other doors, but the entry door is certainly the most important one to decorate.
Choose a wreath with little bells, ivy, holly and colours of red, green and gold. You can even add in fresh flowers to your wreath, to give it some personality, character and warmth. You can still be creative, and stay elegant, just be sure to choose and treat your wreath or garland with love and tender care.
Fairy lights should never be dismissed, because they will never fail to impress. There are huge ranges of fairy lights and rope lights to choose from for your Christmas decorations, including ones that are completely regal and elegant.
Fairy lights can be hung inside or outside of the home, and they add sparkles and magic to the lives of all that see them. They make hearts tender and warm the soul, and never fail to put a smile on the faces of both children and adults.
For elegant lights, keep them simple. Avoid bright and bold colours and if you use a timer to make them flash, then turn it down to a slower and calmer speed. There is no need to smother your house in them. Less can be more when it comes to fairy lights – just be thoughtful about where you place them, and create patterns that are balanced and symmetrical.
Glass Christmas baubles are versatile and can be used in many different locations, inside and outside of your home. Baubles are made from different types of materials, however if you purchase ones that are glass, or are made from a material that looks like glass, then you will surely be selecting elegant and regal decorations.
Choose baubles that are see through, reflective or catch the light. It is hard not to be captivated by beautiful glass baubles, and when you choose the ones for your home, remember that you don’t need bright colours. Simplicity is very elegant.
Less can be more on a Christmas tree. You don’t need to cover it in diverse decorations for a good effect. Choose top quality decorations that truly reflect your personal style, and arrange them in order on the tree, so that it shines and stands with care.
A Christmas star
Christmas isn’t finalised, until you have placed a star upon your tree. Choose one that is bright, shining and beautiful and you will have a tree to be proud of, that looks regal and elegant, and that takes everyone’s breath away who passes it by.
