Inspiring Christmas Decoration Ideas

Everyone has their favorite thing about Christmas. For some, it’s gifts (giving or receiving), for others it’s the food, and some people just love the decorations. If you’re a creative person, decorating for Christmas is a chance to get your creative juices flowing and go all out. You can redesign the inside and outside of your house for the Christmas season. And because you only have it all up for part of the year, it’s that bit more special because you know it will eventually have to be put away. It can be difficult to keep the ideas flowing every year though, especially if you want to keep things fresh. If you’re stuck for ideas this year, take a look at some of these to see if anything inspires you.

Start From the Outside

You might have been hesitant in the past to make too much of a big deal about decorating the outside of your house. It’s easy to accidentally go overboard and end up with something that looks like it’s straight out of Whoville. But you can create a beautiful display that enhances your house and neighborhood, instead of being overwhelming and overpowering. If you’re planning to install lots of lights, use a professional service, such as Christmas light installation by ProActive Landscaping. Especially if you need someone to go up on the roof! If you want to stay classy and understated, stick with white and yellow lights, or pick a single color. But if jolly and bright is for you, go for a multi-colored extravaganza.

Experiment With Your Front Door

The traditional adornment for your front door during the holidays is a lovely holiday wreath. But nothing says that you can’t mix it up a bit and use something else. If you want to stick with a green theme, why not try a hanging box or basket with winter plants or flowers instead? Or if you don’t want to deal with any greenery, you could choose something different. A large wooden decoration that resembles a wreath but isn’t one, perhaps in the shape of a star, would look great. Or how about an advent calendar or a beautiful light guiding people to your door?

Christmas Trees

Everyone does their tree differently, often depending on how much space and money they have. You might have a box (or several) of decorations you’ve collected throughout the years that absolutely must go on your tree. Or you might like to experiment every year. If you like a more traditional tree, you could try a safer version of the candles people would once have used. Get some electric “candles” that you can clip on. There’s no need to worry about wax or flames! If you’re not a traditionalist, you could try something more modern. You can find wooden or metal trees in all sorts of colors, including glittery ones. Or you could move away from the pine tree altogether and choose a tall cherry-tree-shaped sculpture with LED lights.

Get Crafting

Finally, one of the best ways to get your inspiration back if you’ve run out of ideas is to get creating. Make your decorations instead of buying them to give yourself a great project in the run up to Christmas.

Wow Your Partner With Romantic Chocolate Gifts

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

If you’re looking for gift ideas to wow your other half, it’s worth considering chocolate. This luxurious, indulgent product is the perfect symbol of romance. Also, chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac.

However, if you’re to impress your partner, it’s important to think outside the box. Here are some great gift ideas that should get your creative juices flowing.

Create a deluxe hamper

One option is to create a deluxe hamper containing a selection of some of your other half’s favorite foods. You can really go to town on these presents. Of course, chocolate gifts will be the star of the show and for the wow factor it’s a good idea to search for unusual chocolate products online. You’ll be able to find an array of exotic and enticing flavor combinations that are bound to put a smile on your partner’s face.

You can team these presents up with some savory delights too. For added opulence, you can select treats like smoked salmon and caviar. Of course, you’ll need something to wash all these goodies down, and a bottle of champagne makes a great addition to any hamper. However, if your partner prefers rich red wine, opt for this instead.

The important thing is to match the contents of your hamper to your other half’s tastes. This attention to detail will show lots of thought and care.

If the weather’s up to it, you could present the hamper outdoors and treat your partner to a picnic in her favorite spot.

Cook up a storm

Chocolate can also come in handy if you want to cook up a storm. You can use rich dark chocolate in savory dishes like chili, as well as in sauces to go with red meats.

Of course, the more conventional route is to prepare desserts using plenty of chocolate. You can try anything from oozing fondants to fluffy mousses. Another option is to dip strawberries in melted chocolate, chill them and serve. This is easy to prepare and it looks great.

By spending some time in the kitchen creating culinary delights, you can show that someone special in your life that you truly care. It’s also a great opportunity to spend a romantic evening in with your partner. If you get a chance, practice your menu ahead of the big day. This will help ensure you don’t get into any last-minute panics and spoil the meal.

If you’re not sure what to cook, you can check out the array of recipes available online.

Create a personalized message

Chocolate can also be used to create a personalized message. Some chocolate products give you the option of including a special message. Alternatively, you can take a DIY approach. For example, you can pipe melted chocolate onto a dessert or cake and leave your message of choice.

Just make sure you think carefully about what you want to say before you start writing.

When it comes to romantic gifts, chocolate is in a league of its own. With a little imagination, you won’t struggle to impress your partner.

It may only be October, but it is never too soon to start planning a Christmas party. Once the stores put their decorations up, it is time to start planning your festive events. Christmas parties can be a lot of hassle if you don’t plan in advance. That means that you could cause yourself unnecessary stress if you don’t start planning early. Whether you’re putting on a party for your nearest and dearest or planning a huge bash, you need some advice. Here are some amazing ideas for the ultimate Christmas party.

Hire a professional Santa

Few people incorporate Santa into their Christmas party, but that seems a little odd. Children love Santa and having him make a personal appearance at the party will make the bash amazing. You can hire a range of Santa impersonators online. Make sure that you meet the impersonator before the party. You want somebody who looks friendly and warm to greet the children and give them presents.

Get amazing caterers

Many people try and cater their parties themselves. Believe me, doing so will cause you endless trouble. You need to enjoy the party just like everybody else. That means that you need to have the time to enjoy the party. If you’re running around cooking, you won’t have a second to relax. There are loads of private chefs for hire NYC from which to choose. If you have caterers at your party, you have the bonus of them cleaning away all the plates as well.

Serve the perfect hot chocolate

One thing that everybody loves about the festive season is hot chocolate. You should make it your mission to serve the ultimate hot chocolate at your party. Get mini-marshmallows and some quality cocoa powder so that you can whip up some delicious drinks for desert.

Consider getting a band

If you are hiring a venue, you might also want to get a band for the big day. Whilst everybody enjoys your Christmas CD, they might like to hear something different this year. Look for a reasonable band to play at your party. You’re going to want people to dance at your party, and most Christmas songs are hard to dance to. Make sure you book the band far in advance. Christmas is the busiest time of year for entertainers, and so you need to get in fast.

Make sure everybody gets festive

When you are holding a party, you get to make the rules. You should insist that everybody at the party dresses in something festive. People don’t need to come dressed in Christmas sweaters, but they should make an effort to wear something a little festive. Tell people to wear Christmas badges or accessories. Getting people in a festive mood can be tough, but it will make the party more fun.

Plan traditional Christmas games

People tend to underrate traditional Christmas games. Make a list of some of your favorite games and play them at your party. You might want to play charades in groups or get the entire party involved. Children love these Christmas games, and so it will give them something to do while the adults are socializing.

Get your children involved

Don’t leave your children out when it comes to planning your party. Children love getting involved in party planning. You can have some real fun by making Christmas decorations with your children. Get some crate paper in green and red, and make some cool designs. You can make festive banners and posters will your little ones. If you enjoy baking, you might also want to consider making some Christmas cookies. You can let your children decorate them and serve them at your party.

mr peabody and shermanUnleash the adventure with Mr. Peabody & Sherman, available on DVD and Blu-ray October 14!

 Get inspired this Halloween season with this hilarious comedy-adventure. Mr. Peabody (Ty Burrell) is an inventor, scientist and genius who just happens to be a dog. With his son Sherman, he will embark on the most extraordinary adventure imaginable as they race against time to repair history and save the future. Mr. Peabody & Sherman features hilarious performances from an incredible voice cast of popular stars including Ty Burrell, Ariel Winter, Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Max Charles, Patrick Warburton and Allison Janney.

To help you prepare for Halloween this year, we’ll take you back in time through Mr. Peabody & Sherman’s adventures – a surefire list of original and inspired costume ideas for children and parents alike!

egyptAncient Egypt

This Halloween will have everyone walking like an Egyptian. The ideas are endless dressed as Cleopatra, King Tut and Anubis, or keep things under wraps with a Halloween classic – a mummy!

greeceAncient Greece

Take a page from the history books as an ethereal Greek God or Goddess. You can also put those old sheets to good use with a characteristic toga or bring history to life as a Spartan warrior!

italyRenaissance Italy

A nod to the rebirth of culture, the renaissance was marked by some of the greatest poets, philosophers, sculptors, artists, architects and musicians. While the possibilities are infinite, some original costume ideas include the Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci or medieval gowns and robes paired with wigs and jewelry.

frenchFrench Revolution

“Let them eat cake.” Whether you’ll be enjoying cake or candy this Halloween, the French Revolution is chock-full of fashion and extravagance – marked by gowns, jackets, headgear, stockings and quirky accessories.

What better way to pay homage to Mr. Peabody himself than an adorable bow tie accompanied by black retro round frames? Add a little black face paint to the nose and some floppy white ears and you’ll have to do a double take! Of course some of those round frames, freckles and a pair of white sneakers would also make for a great Sherman.

toyskidsLooking for a non-toy gift for children?  Here’s a great list.  Make sure to see the entire list of 50 Non-Toy Gifts for Children. Thanks Super Coupon Lady!

1) HAIR ACCESSORIES -Girls love to fix their hair with pretty Hair Ties and barrettes! Grab a few of these goodies along with special brush.

2) A STAR – Buy and name a star for any occasion! This is especially precious and they will treasure this there entire life. If the star is a little to much

3) A DONATION TO THEIR FAVORITE CHARITY – This is not only a great non-toy gift but a great learning experience for your children to learn about the importance of giving to others.

4) A DAY AT A THEME PARK – A day at a theme park is a awesome way to have a lot of fun with your children and create lifelong memories, I still remember vividly my parents taking me to theme parks as a child and not leaving until the place closed, yes we shut it down lol!!

5) LUGGAGE SET – I never thought of this gift until we went on a vacation together with another family and my daughter noticed her friends super cool Hello Kitty luggage, so I kept that in the memory bank and surprised my daughter for her birthday with luggage!!

6) A TREE – The reason a tree is one of the most awesome non-toy gifts, you can plant it together, it helps the earth, and hopefully the tree will be there for years to come. I remember when I was in elementary school my class planted a tree at school many decades ago (not trying to give away my age here) and now when I go back home to visit, I ride by that tree and think to myself about when I helped plant that tree.

7) FLOWERS – We never think about getting children flowers, but they love to receive them as much as we do! This can be super inexpensive too. Just pick a pretty arrangement and wrap in tissue paper with a ribbon. This gift will get you a big smile!

8) WATCH -Boys and Girls both love to wear WATCHES!!!

9) A PLAY DATE – Arrange a fun playdate with one of a few of their friends. You can even make cupcakes or a special snack to celebrate!

10) WATER BOTTLE – My kids cannot live with out their water bottle, so one day I got them these cool personalized water bottles, and they thought that this was the most awesome gift.
