Prepare Your Home for the Festive Period!

Don't worry, you don't need to add us to the ever growing list of companies talking about Christmas way too soon! The fact is, the big day is little over seven weeks ago and it's time we started thinking how to prepare our homes.

Christmas is all about celebrating with the ones you love. Most of us will have a jam-packed social life throughout the festive period, and often this includes hosting within our own homes. What better reason to spruce up your home ahead of the festive period!

Perfect your dining table

Hosting an event this festive period? Your dining table will most likely be centre stage for it. Whether you’re choosing to arrange a sit down meal, or a more low-key and casual gathering with a spread of food - you’re going to want your dining table to look its best! After a hard slog of use all year, you can ensure your table looks brand new with one of Littlefair’s wood stains or wood dyes. Our wood dyes are 100% water based, meaning they’re easy to use. Why not choose either Dark Walnut or Dark Red Mahogany – these rich colours will look perfect against bold Christmas decorations. Finish it off with one of our waxes or varnishes to protect your new colour.

Don’t forget an eye-catching centrepiece for your table. There are so many creative ways you can set your home apart from the rest. If you’re feeling crafty you could even make your own centrepiece using complementary colours from our wood dye range.

Get crafty

Do you have the perfect style of decorations for your home in mind, but you can’t find them anywhere in the shops? It’s time to get crafty! Checking out Pinterest can help to get your creative juices flowing. You could create tree decorations, table centrepieces or ornaments. If you’ve got a particular colour scheme in mind you may be able to incorporate one or two of our wood stain pastel range.

Trim the tree

The main event for any Christmas decorations is a beautifully trimmed Christmas tree. Whether your heart wants a real tree or you’ve got your eyes on an artificial one, make sure you wow your guests with your decorations. First of all choose a colour scheme - you could go traditional with reds and greens, or why not go modern with teals and silver. Next ensure you add some twinkling lights to catch your guest’s eyes. Finally, finish it off with a sparkling star or an angel atop your tree.

A new lease of life for your floors

Do you have beautiful wooden floors throughout your home? Why not give them a new lease of life with one of our wood stains! If your hallway is adorned with wooden floors it’s the perfect way to make a good first impression. Finish off with one of Littelfair’s varnishes to protect your new floor colour. What better base for your Christmas tree to stand proud and for all the wonderful presents scattered underneath – it will be picture perfect! Below is an example of a floor finished with our Dark Pine wood dye.
