Most of us collect new Christmas decorations every year, and then promptly hide them out of sight in a garage or loft for another 12 months. This year, in the spirt of following our 12-week plan for an organised Christmas, take your decorations out of hiding early and sort through them. We promise you it won’t take as long as you think!
But if you don’t have time to do this yourself, the Hour Hands Christmas elves will be more than happy to sort and pack your decorations – either now or after Christmas. And we can even dress your tree in your chosen style – simply contact us to find out more.
Clear the clutter
Take the opportunity to edit your growing collection by getting rid of any old decorations that you no longer need or like, and check that all your fairy lights are in working order. This is also a good time to work out the best storage solution for those decorations you want to keep. This way, you can make sure everything is properly protected from damp and damage while hidden away, and the whole process of assembling Christmas each year will become so much easier.
A place for everything
Here are some of our favourite clever storage solutions to keep everything in tip-top condition, year after year.
And if your sort-out reveals a need for some new decorations, here’s a few of our favourite themes that are trending this year.
Rustic white Christmas
Enjoy the simplicity of stripped back elegance; for this look, marry white decorations with natural materials.
Take regal inspiration from jewel-toned blues, mixed with whites and metallics.
Classic red and white
You can’t go wrong with the traditional red, green and white palette.
