Christmas is perhaps the happiest season of all, with everyone in a giving mood and being extra kind to one another. We take our time to prepare for this festive event, staging our house with lights, decorations, and a big tree to signal the start of the season. We do this year after year, that sometimes we feel like it’s getting bland and boring.
Fortunately, there are a lot of ways we can level up our holiday celebrations. We can spice up the aesthetics of our house so that our family, friends, and visitors won’t ever forget the way we celebrate the event. If you’re curious to know how you can take your own celebration to a whole new level, here are some tips that you can follow.
Think outside the box
If you’re bored with the classic green and red aesthetics, why don’t you go for not-so-festive ornaments for a change? For example, you have a lot of Lego bricks lying around. Why not DIY some of the ornaments that you’ll hang on your tree, and have a Lego-themed Christmas party?
Another great idea is to borrow some design elements from your children’s favorite movies and shows. You can print out images of their favorite characters, glue them on cardboard, and create bespoke ornaments that they can hand on the tree.
You don’t always have to stick with holiday elements to level up your house decorations. If you love superhero movies, print out some of their images, stick or draw red Santa hats on them, glue them on cardboard, and use them as ornaments for your tree.
Go crazy with the lights
Another easy way to level up your decor is to use as many lights possible. Modern Christmas lights are now more affordable and energy-efficient, so you won’t have to worry about leaving them on for long periods. Also, thanks to new technologies, you can now use smartphone-controlled Christmas lights. You can control the intensity, colors, blinking patterns, and more.
These lights allow you to set the mood of your party, no matter where you are. Smartphone controls make it easy to turn them on and off when they’re not needed. If you use these lights outside, it’s easier for you to customize their colors and blink patterns, leaving your neighbors in awe of how your home looks.
Pick a unique theme
Have you ever wondered what it’s like if the hobbits from Lord of the Rings celebrated Christmas? Wonder no more by throwing a themed Christmas party in their likeness. Decorate your house with period-correct designs, wear costumes, and give gifts related to your chosen theme.
Do you still have the superhero costumes you’ve used last Halloween? You can use them again by throwing a Marvel or DC-themed party, complete with Bat Cave or Avengers Headquarters design elements.
Don’t be afraid to experiment. After all, you’re trying to break a boring holiday streak. Aside from costumes and decorations, you can also prepare food that you think is related to your theme. A quick search online for which snacks hobbits or superheroes would love will give you tons of choices.
