How to Decorate Your Conservatory for Christmas?
Tis the season to be jolly and it’s time to turn your conservatory into a Christmas Wonderland with a little help from WMDG...
Adorning your home with Christmas decorations is one of the fundamental elements of the festive season! The aim of these ornaments is to help get you into the Christmas spirit, as well as create a cosy atmosphere for the family to enjoy for the month of December.
Decorations can be seen throughout a home, whether it be the Christmas tree in the living room, a wreath on the front door or lights and an inflatable Santa at the front of the house. It seems like decorations multiply year on year, but in some homes the Conservatory can often be forgotten.
This is a great shame as conservatories are beautiful rooms to spend time in over the festive season, especially when it comes to entertaining. The conservatory is a great room to relax, play board games or even have Christmas dinner itself if the room is set up as a dining area.
Don’t let your conservatory become a wasted space this Christmas! Here are some ideas to help spread some yuletide cheer in the room…
Garlands, Garlands & More Garlands
Ceiling decorations are a fantastic option for conservatories as you can make use of the tall roof. Garlands in particular come in so many different designs, so you can have multiple colours draping from one side of the room to there other. Holly garlands of green leaves and red berries make for a lovely Christmasy border to be used along the permitter of a conservatory ceiling. If you’ve never used garlands before, they really do make a massive difference to the aesthetic and ambience of a room!
A Sprinkling of Fairy Lights
The great thing about fairy lights is that you can use as many or as little as you like. We recommend placing them horizontally across the top of the conservatory, where the roof meets the glazing. Alternatively, you can place them towards the bottom of the windows. Either make for a cosy, warm effect, creating an inviting, magical allure to your conservatory.
Little touches can make a massive difference when it comes to a festive interior decor. Throws and cushions in reds, whites, greens and gold can be subtle yet noticeable compliments to the rest of your decorations. Small ornaments and candles are another brilliant way of adding more christmassy character to the conservatory space, as are figurines in the form of Santas, snowmen or nativity dolls.
Seeing as conservatories are primarily made up of glass windows, it’d be a shame not to make use of them! Spray-on snow patterns are a fantastic way to do exactly that. Festive images, text or snowflakes being great options. If you have children, they are sure to have a great time helping putting these on your windows as the process is a very fun one!
How About A Conserva-Tree?
The Christmas tree is probably the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to December’s decorations. And, unsurprisingly so due to the tree often being the centrepiece of the festive ornaments. The great thing about having a tree in the conservatory is that it’s reflection can be seen in the windows during the evening, which creates a very picturesque effect. If you’re short on space, there are many smaller trees you can buy which can be placed on a table or shelf.
Use Christmas Cards As Decorations
If you don’t know what to do with your Christmas cards, how about use them as decorations? Place them on the mantle piece, on tables or on window sills to have festive images running through the entire conservatory. They can also be hung up with string running across the ceiling or on fairly lights for very quaint and charming views.
A Christmas classic! If you’re looking to create a romantic setting, or perhaps catch out unsuspecting couples, mistletoe will undoubtedly create beautiful and joyful moments.
Ensure all senses are covered with scented candles! After all, smell is one of the main senses that we associate memories with. So, Christmas scented candles can help cement joyful festive memories in the hearts and minds of your loved ones for years to come. Red apple & cinnamon or orange & pine are two of our favourites!
Create Your Very Own Conservatory Christmas Grotto
For young families, this is an especially good idea! Why not turn your conservatory into your homemade Christmas Grotto and let your children’s imaginations run wild? All you need is a few lights, some fake snow, an extra Christmas tree, perhaps some straw and pine cones and maybe even some cheap, small picket fencing from your local DIY shop. A cost effective way to create incredible memories with your family!
