Here’s a guide on how to achieve a cohesive theme for your home this holiday season.
Choosing a Christmas Tree
The first step in choosing a Christmas tree is determining the size that will best fit your space. Where will you put the tree? In the living room, dining room, or foyer? Measure the height and width of the area and ensure that there’s enough clearance for the tree—and the tree topper—to stand upright without touching the ceiling.
Robinsons Department Store’s Enchanting Christmas Shop offers a variety of trees in different colors (white, silver, and green), materials (tinsel, vinyl balsam, and royal Dakota), and shapes (slim and full). Price and size also come in a wide range to suit your space and budget.
Nothing says enchanting Christmas more than the timeless colors of red and green. For those who cherish the holiday traditions they grew up with, the Christmas Shop offers delightful décor in these classic colors. Think red and green Christmas balls, Nutcracker soldiers, twinkling fairy lights, poinsettias, green and red leaves on slim branches, wreaths, tabletop trees, garlands, and other ornaments like plush toys. Classic Christmas embodies the warmth of nostalgia and holiday traditions.
Bring a dreamy ambience to your home by using pastel décor. With soft hues of pink, blue, violet, green and cream ornaments, you can create winter wonderland-like vignettes that feel like you stepped straight into a fairy tale. Add children’s book creatures like reindeer and rabbits, and you have a dreamy, magical holiday home.
On the other end of the color spectrum are the rich, jewel colors that bring a touch of luxury to your home. The ornaments sparkle and shine in deep blue, maroon, fuchsia, gold, and even black and translucent — and are mostly embellished with silver or gold trims. Gold fillers and ribbons are strategically wound throughout the tree for that extra touch of luxury. Gold wreaths, stylized nativity figurines, reindeer, and brush-like tabletop trees complete the look.
White, gold and bronze create a winter ambience inside the home — a perfect setting to have a cup of hot chocolate with the family and cozy up under a duvet. This winter and opulent ambience also has a touch of cottage core as hammered bronze Christmas balls resemble pinecones that look like you picked them up during a walk in the woods. Even the wreath looks like you just brought it in from your front door after a snowy night. This color scheme is sophisticated and grounded, cozy and magical.
One of the most beloved symbols of Christmas is Santa Claus. With his never-ending supply of gifts from his sack and his jolly laughter, Father Christmas has caught the hearts of generations of children and adults. What better way to celebrate the happy spirit of the season than with a Santa theme? Mini Santa, Rudolph, and the Snow Man can decorate your tree for that festive spirit, while tabletop Santa on his sleigh, and Christmas socks and throw pillows create a cheerful atmosphere all around your space.
Entertaining is a huge part of the holidays and you can flex your cooking as well as your decorating skills in one go. Create a truly unforgettable holiday dining experience with dinnerware and cutlery from the Christmas Shop. They range from minimalist white plates with just a hint of holiday print to colorful ones.
Your table can be as opulent or as simple as you want. Pick a couple of tree ornaments or slim tabletop trees to scatter around the table. You can also create an intimate ambiance with Christmas lights bunched up in glass containers or just winding around on the table like a garland.
