A great Christmas wreath can transform your holiday home front door!

Whether it’s taking pride of place hanging on your holiday home front door, above a fireplace or staircase, Christmas wreaths are often the first decoration to go up. This simple decoration can make a big impression with very little effort.

There’s no doubt a real wreath is glorious, especially if filled with fragrant foliage, but they can often be an expensive option and tricky to keep fresh throughout the entire festive period. In terms of practicality real wreaths are often heavy too, and therefore can be problematic to hang. If you simply want the effect without the effort you may be best to opt for an artificial design, a faux wreath can last for years to come also.

Traditional green or fancy a more funky Christmas tree for your holiday cottage?

It’s just about that time to get into the dusty loft and pull out your artificial Christmas Tree but you may fancy a tad more modern option. A great & simple tip is to spray paint the tree with some more layered colours. Get the tree in a well ventilated space (outside ideally), grab some white and rose gold spray paints and layer the tree with colours from top to bottom. It is a bit different and guaranteed no other holiday home owners else will have a Christmas tree that is as unique as yours!

About to hit the on power button on your Christmas lights for your caravan?

Outdoor Christmas lights are key for adding a touch of extra sparkle to exteriors. From twinkling LED lights around the trees to larger teardrop bulbs illuminating the porch, the right lighting plays such an integral role in setting the scene for Christmas cheer. If you want your illuminations to be a little less ‘showy’ opt for the more subtle option of warm white fairy lights. Draped around tree branches or dressing the decking, simple fairy lights can create a visual delight without overpowering.
