Every family loves to gather around the dinner table for a special Christmas menu. Likewise, every family has their own recipes and dishes that they prepare, so this is all an individual experience. However, a lot of people seem to include HoneyBaked ham, beef tenderloin, cranberry sauce, potatoes, and green bean casserole. Granted, you can’t exactly decorate your home for Christmas with these dishes that you will place around the house, but their presence will make Christmas feel like Christmas. Like warmth, close ties with your family, and a special bond that seems to always be created around this time of the year.

And for dessert, you can bake something every person on this world loves – gingerbread cookies. And that brings us to the next category of things to pay attention to when decorating your home in Hilliard for Christmas – the oh so pleasant smells of Christmas.


Indulging all of your senses for Christmas is the right way to go, and one of them is the sense of smell. And this is a very important one, as studies have shown we associate smells with memories/people/events. Considering the fact that there are certain smells that are more intense during this time of the year, they have become synonymous with Christmas. So if you want to decorate your home for Christmas and turn it into a long-lasting memory, we suggest you make sure these smells are present in your home. And you can do that in a couple of ways.

  1. When it comes to candles and scented decor, opt for seasonal aromas such as pine, fir, cranberry, cinnamon, spruce, etc.
  2. Group pinecones in a statement bowl and place them on your coffee table for a more intense smell. Or put them on your fireplace for a more subtle one.
  3. Finally, bake cinnamon or gingerbread cookies and capture the essence of Christmas.

Besides, once you decorate your home for Christmas with candles, decorative bowls with pinecones, and place freshly baked gingerbread cookies on the table, you will make this an enjoyable time for your entire family, and especially your kids. And isn’t that the entire point of Christmas – making the people we love happy and relishing in their presence?

As an added bonus, put on some Christmas carols and rock the night away

‘Tis the season to be jolly and the best way to do that is by listening to the sounds of the season. Luckily, there are so many Christmas carols to listen to that you won’t have to put everyone’s favorite Jingle Bells on repeat during the entire season. And should you get bored with Christmas carols, feel free to turn up some jazz music. It is also associative of Christmas. And voila – just like that, your entire home will be ready for Christmas, and so will you.
