We all sit in awe watching American Christmas movies on the T.V. with their big green wreaths on their front doors, gigantic colourful Christmas trees, and just all-round extravagant decorations – you can still achieve this magical, traditional Christmas feeling without the expense with our Traditional Christmas collection.
Christmas is all about your loved ones and spreading joy – and what spreads joy better than bold colours, traditional Christmas aromas and the all-important Christmas tree.
Using the products from our collection, we will show you how to create a traditional Christmas for the ultimate Christmas 2021 set up.
Traditional Christmas Decorations to Transform your Home
Decorating the table
One of the main things we all look forward to on Christmas day is certainly the food, so why not give your dining table the showcase it deserves; those crispy roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, and Grandma’s infamous Christmas cake are waiting!
Start with bold, red placemats and even a red table runner for the centre of your table, then layer it up with glistening white crockery that acts as a blank canvas waiting for what is coming. White crockery is a classic selection for Christmas, with all the plates, bowls, mugs, and tea cups you need, white is a staple for any home décor – no matter how crazy your festive décor has gone this year! Add a magical touch with metallic napkin rings, offering a luxurious shine that certainly captures the awe-inspiring feelings of Hollywood movies. For even more detail, add two gold candlesticks at each end of the table for a truly traditional, almost historic feel.
Of course, next you need to think about glassware; a classic tulip shape is a stylish and sophisticated touch that goes with the traditional Christmas style, whether you’re ready for a glass of red wine with dinner or a toast of champagne to all those around you.
As the afternoon goes on, daylights starts to disappear and yawns are rapidly appearing, bring out the classic white cappuccino cups and saucers for that heavenly hot beverage that nicely brings the day to a close and cosy up with a hot chocolate in hand ready for that Christmas evening nap.
Deck the halls
It’s a long, exciting wait running up to Christmas, so whether you are in full Christmas mood as soon as Halloween is over, or you have to wait until December 1st, fill your home with the nostalgia of roasted chestnuts, cinnamon candles and of course the all-important fir tree to make every day waiting special. Our 2ft artificial fir Christmas tree is the perfect touch for small spaces; decorate it how you like, whether you love a mismatch of colours and patterns or you like to keep it neat and organised – your Christmas tree is your personal touch on Christmas. Extend its décor right to the foot with our Christmas tree stands and skirts, the on-trend industrial aesthetic of our metal stands blends perfectly with a traditional Christmas, and the canvas skirts are just as warm on 12th day of Christmas as the 1st.
Offer a luxurious metallic shine as the relaxation and post Christmas dinner naps begin, we have candles in a variety of shapes that will make a statement among your traditional Christmas décor, run them along the fire place, place them together on the coffee table or spread them out across the room for a warm glow in every corner. Choose the aroma that satisfies your seasonal senses with our scented candles; perfect when the jobs are done, the dishwasher is on and it’s time to put your feet up.
We hope this has given you some inspiration to recreate your favourite Christmas movies in your own home, please capture a festive snap and tag us on Instagram @rinkithome, or using the #rinkithome, we'd love to see your traditional Christmas decorations!
