Christmas Decorations: Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I make sure my Christmas table decorations look perfect?

Choose a theme for your Christmas décor and carry this theme throughout your house by using Christmas decorations in similar colors. You may wish to use traditional colors like red, green, and white, or a more neutral palette using earthy colors, or a glamorous glitzy theme with lots of gold. Once you have planned your menu, pick out your dinnerware and glassware. Choose your centerpiece carefully as this will be the focus of your Christmas table decorations. Choose your tablecloth and add matching napkins, votives, flowers, candles and set your table in advance.

2. Why are red and green the colors used at Christmas?

These have been the traditional colors for ages. Some say its symbolic, the red celebrating the everlasting life of our maker, Jesus Christ, and the green symbolizing the evergreen trees of winter. Picture jolly Santa in his red robe, and the green holly at your doorway. This Christmas how about adding a touch of gold, and some sprinkling of snowflakes to add the extra touch to the joy of the occasion.

3. How do I decorate my Christmas table on a budget?

These are just a few ideas for you:

  • Make a centerpiece using pinecones and greenery.
  • Place candles in bottles or mason jars.
  • Use Christmas wrapping paper to make decorations.
  • Find an interesting shaped stick or branch and use that for your tree instead of purchasing a Christmas tree.

4. Should I get a runner for my Christmas table

A runner is a great idea. It creates the continuity you need down the length of the whole table and can be used after Christmas if you have a party. Look for one that’s reversible, as this gives you extra flexibility. For the price it’s a really great addition to your Christmas table. 

5. When is the right time to put up my Christmas decorations?

As a rule, any time before Halloween is too early. Many people start putting up their Christmas decorations during the weekend of Thanksgiving. Traditionally, the Christmas tree only went up the day before Christmas, but any time in December is considered acceptable.

6. Which Christmas tree is best? Artificial or Natural?

For many people who celebrate Christmas, a real tree is part of their family traditions and the ritual of going out as a family and choosing a tree is a favorite childhood memory. They will then carry on this tradition with their own children. A real tree is purchased from a local supplier and this is a way of supporting local businesses.

An artificial tree is a no-fuss alternative and can be re-used again next Christmas. You can also buy one that fits your specifications exactly.

As far as which one is the kinder to the environment, the natural tree is, as it is bio-degradable and sustainable, while an artificial tree is constructed of plastic and metal, and is more likely to end up in a landfill.

7. Where did the tradition of using a Christmas tree come from?

The evergreen fir tree or traditional Christmas tree has been used to celebrate winter festivals by pagans and Christians, for thousands of years. Branches from fir trees were used by pagans to decorate their homes during the winter solstice. Christians use it as a symbol of everlasting life with God.

8. What sort of decorations do I use at Christmas?

Traditional indoor decorations include nativity scenes, bells, Santa Claus and his reindeer, garlands, candy canes, angels, stockings, snow globes, lights, and all sorts of Christmas ornaments including some fun ones for Christmas 2020.

Outside Christmas decorations for your yard include elaborate lighting, statues, and more lights. You can use lights to decorate your front porch, letterbox, and hang a wreath on your front door to add an extra welcoming touch.

9. How many Christmas decorations and ornaments do I need for my tree?

Work on an average of 10 ornaments per foot of a tree, so if your tree is 7ft tall, you will need 70 Christmas ornaments. Use more for a fuller look. By the way, the most popular Christmas ornament for a tree is an angel used as a tree topper.

10. How do I create an extra Christmassy look in my house?

Here you have a few ideas:

  • Light up your house inside and out with fairy lights.
  • Put up a large tree and decorate it.
  • Wrap gifts and place them under the tree.
  • Create a village scene or a nativity scene and decorate with artificial snow.
  • Hang a large decorative wreath on your front door.
  • Bring out your Christmas themed pillows and throws.
  • Put out your favorite Christmas ornaments.
  • Hang Christmas stockings from your heart ready for Santa’s visit.
  • Use scented candles to make your house smell like pine needles.
  • Play your favorite Christmas music.
  • Have some friends around for hot chocolate or indulge in something stronger.
  • Enjoy the holiday season.

11. Where is the best place for my Christmas tree?

Check for the natural pathways in your home which are where people walk to move between rooms, for example from the kitchen to the living room. These are the spaces to avoid so place your tree as far away from these as you can, depending on the layout of your apartment/house.

12. What is the easiest way to hang lights on a tree?

The first step is to make sure you have enough lights. Holiday decorators recommend 100-150 mini lights per foot of tree. Keep the lights plugged in while you drape them to give you an idea of how the tree will look when it is lit.

Work from the top of the tree to the bottom, weaving them through the branches, working in triangular sections.
For more information on hanging Christmas tree lights, take a look at Elle Décor. Follow the same procedure when hanging lights on an artificial tree, but it is a little easier than hanging lights on a natural tree, as an artificial tree’s branches are uniform.

13. Which types of Christmas lights should I look for?

There are three popular types of lights and they are available in different lengths, some are battery operated and some plug in.

  • Icicle lights have the main string with additional light-covered strings hanging from it. These are popular for outdoor Christmas and holiday decorating but can also be hung from your tree.
  • Mini string lights or fairy lights are the most popular lights for use on Christmas trees. They create that twinkling effect, come in a variety of colors, and are easy to handle.
  • Large bulb lights are better for a moderate to low light effect. They can be used on your Christmas tree and are also suitable for outside décor. Some have plastic globes which make them shatterproof.

14. When should I take my Christmas decorations down?

Traditionally the day to take your Christmas decorations down is the Twelfth Night which is January 5th. But many people choose to take them down before returning to work, so whatever suits you best.
