How Our Customers Are Creating Their Christmas Set Up Inside Their New Home
We all have our own Christmas traditions and memories from when we were growing up – things that we did, foods that we ate, and groups of people that we spent our time with – but when you move into your own home and start to build your own life, you might create a whole new festive experience for you and your family.
Whether it’s decorating the tree the way you’ve always wanted to, dedicating the whole of December to a movie marathon or just completely winging your Christmas dinner, it’s your time to do what you like, in your own home.
We asked some of our customers about their Christmas set ups and plans for the festive season, and here are a few of our favourite answers:
“We’re Jade, Ryan, Reggie & Jasper and have been in our home for 2 years in January, we absolutely love it. We’ve completed so many changes, from completely decorating and adding wall panelling, to extending our kitchen units, to adding an office and a dressing room, reconfiguring the space in our guest bedroom, and landscaping our garden. We have a large end of the road plot so have big plans to extend the house eventually.
“For Christmas this year, we’re going to Ryan’s parent’s house on Christmas Day, but we’re hosting a couple of small family gatherings on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. We’re planning to completely chill out this year and enjoy our time with the family and our pups.
We’ve added a bunch of decorations downstairs, such as our snow-covered tree with decorations from The Range and local garden centres, as well as stair and radiator cover garlands, and the odd Christmas themed ornament. We’ve also added some LED Christmas light outside around the house, including a front door wreath.
“We hope everyone has and amazing Christmas🎄”
“Christmas planning begins in September for us! I love visiting local garden centres for inspiration on decorating the house! We have 5 trees this year. I have gone for a winter wonderland theme in the lounge to tie in with the decor colours in this room with an 8ft snowy tree, garland and wreath.
“Into the hall I have gone with a more traditional look of red and green, with a 6ft tree and stair garland. This look has been followed through into the kitchen with a wall tree and garland across the radiator cover and accessorised the sideboard with a runner, candles and potpourri.
“Then finally the outside…a local florist has added a door bow with baubles, then finished around the door and across the front of the house with a traditional garland with lights, baubles and bows.
“Christmas is my favourite time of the year and although the festivities are scaled down, we are still very much looking forward to the big day.”
“Well, what a year it has been! The number one thing that has taken over everyone’s lives has been COVID, we can’t ignore that, but for me the most important thing and focus has been my new home! I moved in to my first home in June 2020 and have never felt so excited for the festive period. I had been so eager to get up the decs and spruce up my home for Christmas.
“I decided to stick to a neutral colour palette to tie in with the theme I have running through the house, beiges, blacks and plenty of gold! My main Christmas tree has a slight rustic feel and I tried to keep this running into my Christmas tablespace with lots of greenery and raw materials. I decided to also add a twig tree to my dining space to tie it all in and add some lighting and dimension. For my first time ever decorating for Christmas, I’m really impressed with how it’s turned out!
“Christmas will be different in many ways this year, but I am looking forward to sticking to traditions with Christmas baking, Christmas Eve pyjamas and plenty of hot chocolates. I have been practising my Christmas roast and yes – Yorkshire puds do belong on a Christmas dinner! :)”
