Decorate your Conservatory for Christmas15/12/2016
Where do you stand in the nationwide debate on the best time to put up your Christmas decorations? The distribution bell curve of decoration dates is tilting earlier and earlier into Advent each year. The first weekend of December is now the most popular time to deck the halls with boughs of holly. Very few people leave it until Christmas Eve (when the traditional twelve days of Christmas start). If you are a late decorator or a traditionalist, here are a few ideas for decorating your conservatory this Christmas.
If you have young children, you make their Christmas extra special with a trip to Santa’s Grotto. No need to fork out on a trip to lapland, though. With some spray snow, some fairy lights and a bit of imagination, you can transform your conservatory or orangery into a Christmas wonderland.
Little donkey, little donkey… The traditional nativity scene has fallen by the wayside in recent years - elbowed out of the way by John Lewis adverts and coca-cola trucks. If you fancy a return to a more traditional Christmas, you could start by setting out a nativity scene in your conservatory. Each day of Advent, you add more characters to the scene until the little cowshed in Bethlehem has all the expected visitors (shepherds, wise men, innkeepers, various animals) the final figure to be added is the infant Jesus on his birthday.
Last year you let your kids decorate the tree and it looked like it had been done by an eight-year-old and a five-year-old standing on the opposite side of the room and hurling baubles at it. This year the tree is yours. It will have elegance and symmetry. It will be a thing of beauty to behold with gilded pinecones and a fairy on top and little foil wrapped chocolate treats hanging out of reach of the dog. The kids can go crazy with the tinsel in the conservatory - it is Christmas after all!
