The build-up to Christmas is one of the most exciting times of the year, we're sure you will agree. There is a palpable buzz in the air as people search for the perfect gift for loved ones, decorate their homes and spend quality time with family; it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement.
From pine cones and mistletoe through to tinsel, snow (fake or otherwise) and a stunning Christmas tree taking centre stage, life in residential park homes doesn't mean you need to tone down the festivities when getting in the holiday spirit - not at all! In fact, our residential communities are like extended family - always ready for a hot drink and a natter, if you need it.
However you choose to celebrate, it's always nice to have your home decorated and feeling festive throughout December to really banish the winter blues!
The traditional colours of red, green and gold are a firm favourite when it comes to Christmas decorations. Red tartan bows and gold accents of beads, ribbons and tinsel on a real Christmas tree are a classic décor combination to really set the tone in the build-up to Christmas.
You can continue the trend with mistletoe, holly wreaths on the door and a stunning table centrepiece of pine cones and foliage with fairy lights in a bell jar atop a slab of wood.
Another popular option for holiday décor is sparkles and glitter, to really show off the festive joy in your residential park home. Glitter baubles and twinkly lights can really highlight the golds and silvers that are so popular at this time of year can create a super stylish, yet homely, aesthetic.
Finish with some crisp white candles and fresh winter flowers to bring your home to life.
Making your own decorations is a popular crafting pastime and a great way to get younger children in the family involved in the festivities. Making your own stockings for a few additional treats, making garlands with popcorn and cranberries, or even creating festive cards with some items you've foraged in the garden - all great fun for kids and you get some quality family time, too.
Our residential park homes have all the mod cons you would expect, and plenty of room to have family over for Christmas lunch, just like always. Setting the table in your home could not be easier as our residents enjoy spacious and luxurious park homes that allow you to play host with ease.
However you choose to spend your holidays, now is the time to really get into the Christmas spirit. If you are looking for more information about life in residential park homes, then look no further! Alternatively, feel free to give us a call on 01564 792323 today.
