There are a few simple things you can do to get your home holiday-ready. Here are five easy ideas to make this holiday season more special than stressful:

1. Tie jingle bells to your door — such a lovely noise to welcome guests.

2. Plant paperwhite bulbs. Sprouting bulbs always lift my spirits on grey winter days.

3. Mass together baby's breath for a simple snowy centrepiece.

4. There's nothing like old-fashioned cutout snowflakes hanging in a window to give any room some holiday magic.

5. Keep a stack of cosy throws and blankets at the ready for snuggling up.

See our Christmas & Holiday Guide for more decorating tips.
