Definitely not a minimalist Christmas!
Minimalist Christmas? What does that even mean - a sad Christmas tree that looks forlorn and lost! I say go big for Christmas and fill a home with festive cheer.
My kids might have grown up and driven their sleighs to new homes, but that doesn't mean I have to give up on decorating my own home for the festive season. I've seen articles that are all about decorating your home with minimalist decor, but that makes me think of a sad Christmas tree stuck in a corner with a strand of tinsel and half a dozen shiny baubles - why bother.
While the spirit of Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus, you can still incorporate this theme into your holiday decor while lighting up the Christmas tree, baking gingerbread men, and spreading the joy. I mean come on, for two weeks of every year I get to take out all my glittery, sparkly decorations and hang them for everyone to see, and for me to enjoy. There's nothing I like more than to park myself in a comfortable chair and watch the Christmas tree lights flicker on and off, on and off...
Christmas decorations are usually put up towards the end of November or early in December, but if you want to fill your tree with something new and shiny, it's always better to shop for these before everyone rushes out and there's nothing left.
With Christmas tree baubles and hanging decorations priced from as little as R29.99 (at Mr Price Home), you can afford to dress your Christmas tree in silver and gold to your heart's content.
For those who prefer to keep it simple, there's nothing wrong with cutting your own wooden Christmas tree and filling it up with a selection of red, green, gold and silver ornaments and decorations.
Light up your home this festive season with shimmering metal and wood tree ornaments that will add the finishing look to your holiday decor. Whether you make it or buy it, fill your home with the spirit of Christmas.
