How To Embrace The Cosiness This Christmas At Home

How To Embrace The Cosiness This Christmas At Home

When it comes to the festive period, staying in is the new going out. There’s something undeniably magical about the days leading up to Christmas at home.

There are many ways to enter the spirit of Christmas at home – listening to Christmas music, indulging in too much mulled wine and too many mince pies and putting on a classic Christmas film.

The feeling that connects all these activities is cosiness. 5 Star has put together some of the best ways to step up the cosiness in your home, so you can truly feel ready for Christmas.

Focus on your fireplace

Your Christmas tree will undoubtedly give off a cosy, festive feel, but your fireplace can do the same.

Wreaths are no longer just for doors! To dress up your fireplace and make it a festive focal point within your room, we recommend you place a wreath on the wall above your fireplace.

In addition to placing a garland or any type of foliage on your fireplace, you could choose to spell out a festive message, such as ‘Ho Ho Ho’ and ‘Merry Christmas’ in neon lighting.

Light up empty bottles and jars with fairy lights

‘Tis the season to enjoy a drink or two! If you’re planning or hosting (or attending) a Christmas party this month, gather any used wine and beer bottles and food jars.

Once you have removed the label and thoroughly cleaned the bottles, carefully drill a hole in the base of the bottles or jars, then thread through some LED fairy lights. We suggest white, red or green for a real magical feel.

If you’d rather skip the DIY decorations, you also have the option of buying them ready-made. You can place the bottles and jars on window sills or as a centrepiece on the table.

Get creative with past Christmas memories

Christmas is a time to enjoy treasured moments with family and friends.

It’s also the perfect time to look back on happy memories from past Christmases. Look back on happy times with photos in personalised baubles, snow globes or just some simple wall art. For inspiration, check out this display of polaroid pictures with lights here

Showcasing these memories will definitely create that warm and fuzzy feeling only possible at Christmas.
