Getting prepared for Christmas!

Alien Invasion Wallpaper Mural

Whether you want to acknowledge it or not, Christmas is just around the corner.  The supermarket aisles are filled with crackers and tinsel, not to mention chocolates shaped like brussel sprouts.  Panto season is well underway (oh no it isn’t!) and the children are already writing their letters to Santa.

Meanwhile you’re no doubt hastily writing lists of your own to keep track of wish lists, presents already bought, who’s coming for dinner and special dietary requirements.  With four weeks left it may feel as though time is running out, especially when there is so much to keep in mind, so we’ve pulled together a handy list of things you may not have thought of – but might come to wish you had.

Setting the scene

The Christmas tree tends to get a lot of the focus when it comes to decorating the home at this time of year, but there are so many other ways you can add a touch of festive magic to your home.

Stringing sparkly lights around the dining room, or even in the hallway is a great way to add some warmth to spaces that may otherwise get forgotten about.  Equally, buying and lighting festive candles with scents such as gingerbread or mulled wine can fill your home instantly with the smell of Christmas and lift even the gloomiest of moods.

Going the extra mile

If you’ve decided to take the plunge and get the gamer in your family a whole new set up for their equipment, then you may want to consider going the extra mile with some decorating.  Here at Marmalade Art we have a huge selection of gaming wall murals perfect for a bedroom, den or gaming studio.  Whether they’re into racing games or are a massive Playstation fan, we’re bound to have something that suits their interests.

No one wants to be decorating immediately before Christmas, so it’s best to get your orders in quickly.  We aim to turn orders around within 10-15 working days, so there is just enough time to get everything sorted before Santa arrives this year!

The Christmas Table

Most people instantly think of their Christmas dinner when talking about the big day itself, and with good reason. It’s certainly the highlight for us!  So, make sure your Christmas table is suitably festive – don’t forget to add crackers (who can resist a cracker joke?), festive napkins and a centrepiece.  If you have young children and can tolerate an explosion of glitter, you could even keep them occupied by asking them to create something magical. 

Don’t forget, we’re currently offering 10% off all orders when you sign up to our newsletter – so why not get in touch today?  We have lots of murals to choose from, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, we also offer the chance to upload your own image and have a custom design.
