Christmas time is here and it has brought with it festive cheer, flashing lights and a mass of chocolates (just us?) We know how important those little touches to your holiday property can be to guests, particularly at Christmas time, so we thought we would write up a blog post giving you some inspiration on decorating your holiday property for those festive guests.
A Christmas Tree
So obvious that I wasn’t sure whether to include it! No Christmas is complete without a tree but they are quite bulky and not the best for travelling. Save space in your guests’ car and save them time by having a tree up and decorated when they arrive.
A Plate and Mug for Father Christmas
Travelling around the world giving gifts to everyone on the nice list is pretty tiring, and we have word that Father Christmas gets a little peckish! Why not provide a fun plate for children to use so that they can leave out a mince pie and milk for the big man in red. Don’t forget a carrot or two for the reindeers!
Psst! We hear that Father Christmas is quite a fan of these festive tipples, as well…
What is Christmas lunch without a tablecloth and centre piece? Whether you go for a fun, novelty throw away table cover or something a little more traditional and plush, leave one for your guests. This will make their holiday property feel a little more like home, even more festive and also has the benefit of protecting your dining room table! Providing a matching centre piece or candles can really add to the festive feeling.
Christmas is not all about the big things; it is the small and thoughtful things that can really make a difference. Why not leave some crackers (the edible, or the pulling kind) for your guests and add some festive sweets or biscuits to your welcome pack? If your property is dog friendly, don’t forget to put in some treats for the pooch – it’s these little things that can make a lovely festive addition that your guests are sure to love!
