Planning a Picture-Perfect Christmas with Your Family
Christmas is a matter of months away, and if you are like most people, you are more than likely excited to celebrate the Yuletide season with your nearest and dearest.
After all, Christmas provides an ideal opportunity for loved ones to come together to indulge in great food, drinks, and company.
If you want to make this holiday stand out among the rest, and ensure your other half, children and extended clan have the ultimate festive day, read on. We’re going to give you some tips on how to plan a picture-perfect Christmas with your family.
Book a Festive Break
Rather than cramming the whole clan into your home this Christmas, why not book a festive family break?
For example, Big House Experience provides a wide variety of large manor houses, cottages, country houses and even castles for you to choose from for a Yuletide holiday your loved ones couldn’t possibly forget.
Plus, if you don’t want to take responsibility for a festive feast this year, you could even hire a private chef to create a delicious dinner. Booking a trip away will allow you to focus on creating wonderful memories with your partner, children, and extended family members.
Decorate a Christmas Tree Together
Your spouse and/or children are bound to feel a buzz of excitement in the air when decorating a Christmas tree. It is a fun activity to enjoy as a family and can make your little ones feel excited for the arrival of Santa Claus and his reindeers.
Plus, you will love watching the season through their eyes.
Coordinate Your Outfits
Add a little fun and laughter into the season by coordinating your outfits this Christmas. For example, everyone from your gran to your niece could adorn matching pajamas for a festive night in front of the Christmas tree, or you could each wear festive-inspired sweaters when sitting down to a delicious feast. Don’t forget to have a camera at the ready for an obligatory photo that will make everyone laugh and smile in years to come.
Plan a Christmas Activity
While your loved ones will more than likely be happy to reminisce about old times and catch up on each other’s lives this Christmas, you could make the holiday a touch more exciting by planning a fun activity.
For example, you could bake Christmas cookies with the kids, create cocktails with the adults, or you could all settle down for a night of holiday movies with popcorn and hot chocolate. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a white Christmas this year, you could even host a snowman decorating competition in the garden.
Create a Yuletide Playlist
Nothing will get your loved ones in the holiday spirit quite like hearing their favorite festive songs, such as:
- Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas
- George Michael’s Last Christmas
- Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas
- Andy William’s It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
So, ensure the music is playing upon arrival and have eggnog or hot chocolate at the ready. This will make your nearest and dearest feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
