Simple but Stunning Christmas in July Decorating Tips for Instant Festive Impact

Pretty Little Christmas Table Decorations and Plate Set

Decorating for Christmas in July is the perfect way to add instant festive impact to your home. Perhaps you choose to go all out and decorate just as enthusiastically as you would for Christmas in December. Or maybe, at this time of the year, you are looking for a slightly lower level of commitment in terms of time and effort, but you still want to achieve maximum levels of festive cheer.

Whatever your Christmas in July decorating intentions and motivation, we can’t wait to share with you our top tips for simple, but stunning, Christmas in July decorating.

So, grab yourself your warm, comforting, winter beverage of choice (maybe tea, or maybe some mulled wine!) and discover just how easy it is to create a simply amazing Christmas in July wonderland in your home.

Simple Christmas in July Decorating with Flourishing Florals

While there’s lots to love about the cooler months, there’s generally not a lot of beautiful natural foliage and flowers around to be found and enjoyed. And that’s why decorating with faux florals is probably our favourite simple Christmas in July decorating tip.

Ok, admittedly, we do love decorating with florals pretty much ALL year round. But particularly for Christmas in July, florals are the perfect way to easily inject plenty of colour and texture around your home when it’s looking a little cold and grey outside.

A gorgeous wreath certainly adds an instant feeling of Christmas cheer. Whether you’re looking to create a winter wonderland with frosted leaves, embrace Australia’s native beauties or add a little colour and style, there’s a wreath for you.

Wreaths are a versatile Christmas décor piece that can brighten up any area of your home. Of course, you can add it to your front door as is a popular tradition. You could choose to hang your wreath on an inside wall or door, or display it on a wreath stand or resting against a wall as part of a vignette. And remember that any wreath is the perfect canvas for customising a truly unique piece too. Feel free to add embellishments such as baubles and ribbons to your wreath for something extra special.

Flowers are another oh-so-simple Christmas in July decorating piece. There are many different ways that you can use flowers throughout your home.

If you are setting up your tree this Christmas in July, be sure to add flowers to really amp up the volume.

If you aren’t having a tree there’s still plenty of opportunity for flowers. Flowers are great for decorating many other spaces throughout your home too.

Create a stunning floral arrangement in a vase or any other vessel, such as a wheelbarrow, by combining your flowers with a selection of floral sprays too. This helps to adds another level of height and texture to your display. These type of arrangements are perfect to adorn a sideboard or at the centre of the dining table.

Check out the Christmas Craft section of our blog for plenty of floral inspired DIY decorating ideas.

For a simple Christmas in July decorating idea, add flowers to a garland draped across the mantle or place single flowers on the table or with grouped other Christmas décor pieces as part of a vignette.
