Tis the season for hot chocolate and snuggling! The holidays are the best time for boots, jackets and mittens, but if you’re planning on staying in doors, Camille from Planning Pretty has great tips for creating a cozy corner at home.
The holidays, while fun and festive, can be a very hectic time of year. We’re running around stores, cooking meals, baking desserts and attending parties. It can drain a lot of our energy and leave us feeling stressed or depleted. However, finding a moment to unwind and enjoy the season is a wonderful to recover.
Creating the perfect space to relax doesn’t mean redecorating the entire house. Find a little corner in your home. Maybe it’s by the fireplace or in a reading nook. Move your favorite chair, footrest or pillows to the corner, even if it’s just for the season. You’re probably moving a ton of furniture around anyways to make room for a tree or larger dining table. Why not make a little refuge for yourself too!
Once you have the furniture moved, start to add in your favorite seasonal elements. A cozy throw will keep you warm and comfortable. Arrange a few pieces of holiday décor like a nutcracker and ornaments to give it a holiday touch. Hang a beautiful holiday stocking and fill it with your favorite holiday candies to enjoy whenever you wind down. When you’re able to escape, give yourself a personalized tray of a favorite holiday photo or pattern. Serve yourself milk and cookies or another favorite holiday treat and feel the stress melt away.
Taking a few moments in the midst of holiday chaos will reignite your love for the season. You’ll have a moment to breath, indulge a little and remember why you love this time of year. Don’t let the demands of the holidays ruin your love for the season!
