Getting your home ready for Christmas should be a fun and magical time. To get started, carefully pack away some of your everyday furnishings to make space, clear and clean any surfaces, and then dig out those decorations for some festive oohs and aahs.
How many baubles do I need for the tree?
As a guide, 80 baubles should cover a 6ft tree nicely, but it also comes down to personal taste. A minimalist approach can work well, as can a tree bursting with baubles! Start from the middle of the tree and work outwards to avoid knocking any baubles off, and mix up different sizes and colours to add interest.
How many lights do I need for the tree?
Roughly speaking, we recommend about 80 lights per foot of height - so about 480 lights for a 6ft tree. Remember to measure how far the tree will be from the plug socket and make sure the lead length between plug and decoration is long enough.
When should I put my tree up?
For some, the Christmas tree goes up at the start of advent, which this year is on the 3 December. Others prefer to wait until the second week of December. For us, it's simply whenever you start to get that festive feeling!
When should I take my tree down?
Traditionally you take your Christmas tree down 12 days after Christmas - also known as Twelfth Night. There's debate on whether this falls on the 5 or 6 January, so it's really up to personal preference. Make sure you have plenty of storage boxes ready for all of your new decorations.
Keep your decs in place all December long with hooks and hanging strips. And if you need some help reaching the top of the tree, or getting into the loft, we have a range of ladders in all shapes and sizes.
We want Santa to be safe while he dashes through the snow to deliver all the gifts...
- Don't leave Christmas lights running when you go to bed at night, or when you leave the house.
- Don't use tacks, nails or screws to hang lights, which can pierce the cable and become electrified. Use insulated hooks instead.
- If bulbs have burned out replace them right away, but make sure you use the correct wattage bulbs.
Save Santa from falls by keeping cables tucked away so that they're not a trip hazard.
