Five tips to make your hallway welcoming this holiday season
With Christmas quickly approaching, it is likely that your thoughts are already occupied with decorations and food if you are hosting a get-together this year. Making a good first impression helps to establish a welcoming and comfortable ambience, with making your hallway look as inviting as possible the first step to hosting a very successful holiday gathering.
Green garlands and wreaths
Decorating your front door with a Christmas wreath is a lovely way to get into the holiday spirit, with festive garlands looking equally as lovely inside. Embrace Scandi style with scatterings of pine cones and miniature trees in white plant pots, or go all out by introducing frosted berries and decorative woodland animals amongst your greenery.
Christmas is a magical time of year and introducing candles and twinkling lights into your décor is an ideal way to add some extra sparkle to your celebrations. Cinnamon and orange scented candles will flood your space with a warming ambience, with tea lights inside beautiful metallic lanterns ideal for adding an extra touch of opulence. Battery-operated tea lights work equally well at establishing a cosy atmosphere and are perfect if there will be young children or pets present.
Embrace the edge
The beauty of hosting a gathering is that it can be as traditional or as edgy as you want it to be and there is no reason you can’t have a little fun and experiment by putting your own spin on things. Instead of a traditional red and green Christmas, why not introduce flashes of vivid yellow or hot pink into the mix for a contemporary twist? Alternatively, you could introduce a vintage aesthetic to your celebrations by arranging rich emerald green and royal blue glassware and elegant burnished silver candelabras.
An enchanting entrance
Adorning the doorway into your dining or entertaining space with fragrant greenery will release a beautiful aroma every time someone passes by, creating an enchanting and magical ambience that your guests won’t forget in a hurry. You will definitely get extra points for arranging some fairy lights within the greenery!
Accessorise existing furniture
It is likely that your hallway already houses existing pieces. You shouldn’t feel that you have to move these out of the way to create the perfect entrance; instead, think about how you can incorporate them into your décor and transform them into a unique feature. Attaching fairy lights under a clear glass console table, for example, will perfectly illuminate any decorations you choose to display without needing to figure out how you are going to conceal the wire.
