How To: Get Your Home Ready For Christmas

Author Editor - 1 minute read

Every year when Christmas comes around, we get this overwhelming urge to pack away our normal everyday home items and swap them out for something a little more festive. Out goes the plain wine glasses, and in come the metallic ones which are saved for special occasions – like Christmas.

However, what changes can you make to your home for Christmas which will make maximum impact? Well, step into the French Connection Christmas Shop and find out.

Glassware Is Your New Best Friend

If you’re thinking that your front door is going to turn into a revolving door over the Christmas period, with a constant stream of visitors popping in for some mulled wine, then your glassware is a good place to start.

Champagne flutes are a must, particularly when they come gold tinted. Though, if you’ve hit your gold ratio for one season, the blue alternative is a chic and modern take.

Baubles, Put Baubles Everywhere

These should not be exclusive for the tree – hang them from any spare space that you can find. An instant injection of festivity, baubles which are as stylish as they are merry are right up our street.

Festive Scents 100% Are A Thing

Candles dotted around a room are a great way to instantly update the space. Adding a touch of ambience and softening the atmosphere, they’re ideal for those cosy evenings in front of a Christmas film.

Add Pops Of Christmas Everywhere

If classic baubles won’t suffice, then choose something with even more personality. A 3D star ornament is a flawless way to give Christmas a subtle nod, without it taking over your home. Though, we’re not sure who would want to be subtle at this time of year…

Invest In Cosy Textures

Cashmere or faux fur? The choice is yours, but make sure you grab a blanket, the popcorn and a good festive film for a festive night in to rival all night outs.

Think Communal, Think Serving

You can’t escape the fact that you’re more than likely going to be entertaining at some point over the Christmas period. So, make sure that you have everything you need and opt for warm wood serving bowls, gold enamel and frosted glass in your tableware.
