Living Room Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorating has always been the thing that gets us in the mood for the season.
Living room is the one of the first places to decorate for Christmas.
Prepare your living room, make it look absolutely gorgeous by choosing some new card holders, cute fabric stocking, picking up a beautiful Christmas tree and, of course, the candles. 

What is it about candles that makes everything more romantic, more special and more meaningful?
Everyone feels closer and happier, soft candlelight agrees with your complexion and everything looks more beautiful. Fire, candles, lights, a warm glow have always been a part of the winter holidays.
Add a bit of romance.
This season, candles are the ultimate Christmas home accessory and they come in various colours, sizes and scents to match your personal preference.
Choose your scent and style and keep these lovely candles burning all day long to create the ideal Christmas ambiance in your home.

Christmas stockings are a very important part of the Christmas decorations and they can be hung by the fireplace. When you dont have a fireplace, you can hang a stocking on the door to each persons bedroom or simply put them under the tree. Another great alternative to hanging your Christmas stocking is on the backs of your dining room chairs. Nowadays, stockings are available in all fabrics and designs to suit your likings. So many options, you can't go wrong.

So let’s make it special.  
Try to decorate a living room for Christmas with some ideas from Next shop online for the latest fashion for women, men, children and homeware.  
Light up your home for Christmas with these beautiful candles.




I love these deep red Festive Spice Pillar Candles £12 (http://bit.ly/WDvvQk) for a sweeter mix of juicy orange, red berries and festive spices.



Try this beautiful set of Decorative Tree Candles £8 (http://bit.ly/RPJXin) to go on the living room table next to the tree. The rich mix of sweet fir balsam and amber with notes of cinnamon and pine will have your home smelling like a wonderful Christmas cabin in the woods.

Dressing up your dining table is almost as important as your food.

Create eye-catching table decorations in a matter of minutes using items, such as wine glasses and table runners. A Christmas dinner table is not complete without a beautiful Christmas dinnerware set. 
Here are some kitchen decorating tips for Christmas from Next that can make your table truly beautiful. 
 
Using a special set of Christmas dishes can make a big difference.  You can use dinnerware set as part of your decorations. It's the small things that make a big difference in setting your Christmas Table.

 




I love this Annabelle Dinner Set from Next 
Dishwasher and microwawe safe.
Porcelain 12 piece set.  
Dinner plate 27cm, side plate 20cm, bowl 18cm.










A great way to make your kitchen glisten is with a golden Christmas decor table setting. A golden tablecloth is also important. I  love the white plates with a touch of gold. Adding in some gold dinnerware will give a spark and a little elegance to your casual home.

 




How about this Glimmer Dinner Set

Have a look at this beautiful glasses. How posh and glamour they look?

I am a big fan of table runners, they just add a little something extra to your table setting and caused to compliment your linens, china and decor. Keep the table set with a nice Christmas tablecloth or runner, crystal wine flutes and Christmas dinnerware. Candlesticks are another great way to decorate your table and add a flair of elegance.

Christmas Decorations Ideas

Christmas are getting closer, we have 10 weeks before the holidays arrive, so ... now it's the time to get inspired. You can slowly start to think how to decorate house and get everything ready before busy period.

For me Christmas decorations should be all about magic. 
Remember you can set a festive holiday mood throughout your house with simple Christmas decorating ideas. All you need is a good imagination. 
Christmas ornaments are not just for the tree. Extra ornaments can be found to have several uses, all that is needed is some fabulous ideas.

Quick Tip :
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
You can buy inexpensive clear glass balls and fill partially with Christmas ornaments, colorful gemstones, jelly beans or whatever else you can come up with. You can add some glitters and the glitz of the glass will enhance the shine.

Also, you can get a roll of wrapping paper and some ribbon. Take those empty cereal boxes and cartons, wrap them up and display them... even if there is no gift inside. 
They'll get you into the holiday spirit. 

The Christmas season is fast approaching. 
December is the most wonderful time of the year to decorate, so be prepared to transform inexpensive things into magical Christmas decorations.

Christmas Market Kosice

Why choose Košice for your next visit?
Košice is Slovakia's second biggest city. It has a long and rich history. 
I am proud to be from this city, which in 2013 will carry the title ''The European Capital of Culture''.

Close to Hungarian and Ukrainian border, the metropolis of Eastern Slovakia has a lot to offer to its visitors.

Traditional Christmas markets (slovak: Vianocne trhy) is on Main Square (slovak: Hlavne namestie). 
You can find there: 3 marvellous buildings – St. Michael Chapel, St. Elisabeth Cathedral and State Theatre, 2 fountains, charming parks, streets and squares.
Celebrating the most beautiful holiday of the year has a unique charm in this historical city center of Košice. Come and enjoy the unique magical atmosphere.

Visit Christmas markets, taste traditional specialties (Mayor's punch, spicy mulled wine,  lokše-flat potato-dough pancakes, sauerkraut and mushrooms soup, grilled sausages and home-made pastries), listen Christmas concerts, traditional folk performances and bring home unique craftsmen products that are sold on the market. 
Yes, Christmas market is full of typical Slovak products. Don't forget to try a shot of homemade slivovica (plum brandy).
Stop by the Singing Fountain. The water in the fountain moves in keeping with the rhythm of the songs that are played, while at night colorful lights join the performance. 
Also, visit ice sculptures made in public.

Slovakia is a friendly place.
Take a trip to the metropolis of eastern Slovakia, well-connected by rail, air and road to the rest of central Europe and judge for yourself.
