No matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other Winter Holiday, December is the season to brighten up your home with holiday décor and decorations. From gingerbread baking in the oven to stockings hung over the fireplace- we’ve put together 8 easy ways to bring the holiday season into your Westbow Home.
1. Add a holiday wreath to your front door
Adding a wreath to your front door is a great and simple way to bring the spirit of the holiday to your home. Local makers offers various styles of wreaths or you can create something yourself using local greenery.
2. Decorate your Christmas tree
There are many options when it comes to your Christmas tree. There has been a long debate between whether a fake or real tree is better, but there are now more options than ever! Second hand artificial trees provide a lower cost option while those looking for an eco friendly option may opt for a returnable Christmas tree.
3. Fill your holiday mugs with homemade hot chocolate, apple cider, or mulled wine.
As the weather gets colder outside, filling your mug with a warm cozy drink will help warm your body and soul. We love this hot chocolate recipe from scratch. Just don’t forget to put it in your holiday themed mug!
4. Bring festivity into your bathroom
Simple pieces of décor such as candles, a locally made sign, and some holiday themed hand towels are a great and easy way to bring the holidays into your bathrooms.
5. Light up your neighbourhood
Christmas lights provide a bright and cheery neighbourhood atmosphere. From traditional string lights to modern projectable lights, the variety in options are endless
6. Spend time baking holiday cookies
Your Westbow kitchen is perfect for spending time with your family, baking holiday cookies. There are many holiday cookies to choose from! Gingerbread, sugar cookies, and shortbread are just a few of our favourites.
7. Relax in your loft and enjoy a holiday movie
Many Westbow homes have bonus rooms or lofts which make for excellent places to curl up and enjoy a holiday movie.
8. Spend time with your family and friends.
As the holidays draw closer, families and friends gather to celebrate the season. Westbow homes are built for hosting parties, get togethers, and dinners. Spacious, open concept kitchen’s and living rooms ensure there are no separation between the guests and the hosts.
