This year has flown by, so start getting your thinking heads on about present ideas and Christmas plans, if you haven’t done so already.
It is traditional and lucky to put your decorations up 12 days before Christmas Day and to pull them down 12 days after.
Most people get so caught up with putting up the tree, lights in the windows and wrapping tinsel around the stair banisters that they forget to decorate the kitchen.
Why shouldn’t the green and red touches and Christmas feel be spread all over the house, including the main room in which you may possibly be eating your Christmas Day grub in?
Ulster Weavers have put together some Christmas ideas of how to spruce your kitchen up this holiday with that ‘ho, ho, ho’ spirit.
Similar to the picture above, you can use the cabinets to add some greenery and garland. Add some big red bows, ribbons and beads to hang down from the cabinets but make sure you are still able to open the cupboards for your food.
You don’t have to spend loads of money to creative the festive cheer; why not add a centre-piece in the middle of the dining table or some candles on the window ledge; or hang some mistletoe from your kitchen lights?
A really fun way to get the children involved is to frost the windows with that ‘snow in a can’ you can buy from various stores. The kids will love drawing snowmen on the windows with snowflakes and more, and it’s easy enough to be washed off afterwards.
Complete the look with a Christmas themed table set of placemat, cutlery, table cloth, and glasses. It will really ‘Christmasify’ your kitchen and make it that little bit more special when your tucking into your Christmas turkey.
Really go to town with Pot Mitts, Gauntlets and linen tea towels, it only happens once a year!
Here are some fantastic Ulster Weaver products that would really bring your home to life this holiday time.
Get into the festive spirit when cooking the Christmas dinner by wearing this Christmas Apron.
This tea cosy would look fantastic on your kitchen work top, perhaps good enough to eat!
Pair your apron with some oven gloves; you don’t want to be burning your hands on that Christmas stuffing!
