The festive season is fast approaching and the Christmas spirit is building up in virtually every corner in Rwanda. Being one of the most important holidays on our annual calendar, bringing together family, friends and loved ones, so much detail is put into planning to make it a memorable event. I for one remember helping my mum and dad decorate our living room with Christmas trees, cards and other paraphernalia just to give it that holiday and homely feeling, and of course to show off to my friends when they came to visit, nostalgia!
Getting your home all set for Christmas shouldn't be financially draining. You can make the best out of the resources you may have at hand: it's all about being creative and innovative!
Here are some Decoration Tips by Jumia Rwanda:
You can tie Christmas inspired ribbons around your throw pillows to make them look like gifts.
It's quite a norm to receive a handful of Christmas cards every year. You can brighten up your space by turning them into works of art: be it on your Christmas tree or doorway for a homely feeling.
You can fill empty glass jars with Christmas ornaments surrounded with some greenery. Keeping things stylish but simple is virtually the secret to pulling off a unique arrangement.
Christmas is that time of the year you have to create a colorful and homely ambience. You can decorate your Christmas tree with ornaments of different colors to draw some attention. Silver and gold plated ornaments should top the list of colors to choose.
You can hang pictures of previous Christmas celebrations and other family gatherings to also create a warm and homely feeling. You can frame those pictures and hang them on the Christmas tree as well as the hallway and other open areas in the house.
