This time of year can always feel a little hectic. And if you’re still slowly getting past the new moving in phase, chances are it’s been even more chaotic than normal for you. But having a new home to celebrate Christmas in is always an exciting milestone, especially when it’s your first home to call your own. You can explore where the best places are to hang your decorations and enjoy the fact that you can decorate it just as you like. Make the most of the Christmas season in your first home with some of these simple festive tips.
Declutter as Much as Possible
If you’ve only moved into your new home within the last few months, chances are you still have plenty of boxes lingering about. Any extras items that you won’t be dealing with until after the Christmas season should be neatly tucked away into a corner of your home to reduce the amount of clutter. The main goal is to free up as much space as you can to get your decorations out and set up.
Get a Real Tree
Even if you’ve been using a fake tree over the years, why not change it up and go for a real tree this season? You can head over to your local tree centre and start a new tradition by picking out the perfect one with the family. Then once you bring it home and set it up, your house will be filled with fresh aromas that are always a delight during this time of the year.
Hang Some Lights
Nothing brightens up the dark winter nights more than some colourful lights hung along the exterior of a home. Make your house a festive wonder in your new neighbourhood by making an effort to decorate your landscape.
Make a DIY Project
If you love to get crafty, make a DIY project by creating your own stockings! This is a great way to do something fun while creating decorations that you can always look back on to commemorate the Christmas season in your first new home.
Host a Party!
To celebrate your new milestone, why not host a holiday party so you can show it off to your family and friends? This is an ideal way to kill a few birds with one stone — you can invite everyone over for a housewarming and some holiday cheer all at the same time. And even if your home is a little chaotic, your guests won’t mind! It’s all about spending time together and celebrating those special moments with those you care about.
You can make the most of the Christmas season in your first new home by starting some new traditions, decorating it as you please, and inviting your loved ones over to celebrate.
