The festive season will soon be upon us again, which means it’s time to put the decorations up. This is one of the best aspects of Christmas. Once the tricky business of getting the tree and decorations out of the loft or garage has been accomplished, the real fun begins. For many people, this is the time to really start to observe the family traditions around Christmas. Specific decorations carry certain memories and meanings. The place that they go is also significant. It’s hard to credit it, but the simple decoration placing of ornaments can be a great anchor to our past and the shared memories that this season brings.
If you’ve just moved into one of the attractive options offered by Gloucestershire Park Homes then you’ll be looking forward to the chance to start the process all over again and make some new memories. How do you go about organising the space and making room for the decorations you’ve brought with you or introducing some new ones?
First of all, one of the best rules of thumb is to remember that less is more. When you consider that our Victorian ancestors, the first ones to really “get into” Christmas, limited themselves to a Conifer tree and paper streamers, our approach might seem a little over the top. What hasn’t changed is the focus on the tree. This is still the focal point of any set of decorations and is usually the most significant thing in the room. Many people start with the tree as it takes the most extended amount of time. It’s also where the longest-serving decorations end up. Baby’s first Christmas or the homemade ones from primary school, that hasn’t fallen apart yet, are some of the most famous examples. The Angel on the top or Star is another example. Either way, you’ll need plenty of tinsel and lights to put on it as well. The tree is best situated in a corner so that it can be admired. It still makes the best place to put all the presents under when it comes to opening them in the morning.
The rest of the home needs to be looked at once the tree is in place. Perhaps you’re the sort of person who likes a uniform approach to the colour scheme. It works well in the space afforded by a Park home. Anything too chaotic can result in the whole place being swamped, just as it would in a house. There are plenty of places to start putting tinsel and streamers all over the place. You’ll also get a fireplace again with a Park Home. That means you can get the stockings out again.
