Are you stuck for ideas about decorating your Canberra rental property heading into the Christmas season? First of all, make sure you're organised!
Do you have a rental in Canberra and don't know where to start with your Christmas decorations? It's unlikely that you'll be allowed to screw anything to the wall, or plant lots of new Christmas-themed plants in the yard. It might also be tough to find a real Christmas tree that fits inside without scratching the walls or the ceiling – so opt for something a little different.
When you're getting into the Christmas spirit, it's easy to get carried away with your decorating and forget practicality – but take note of the advice listed below, and you'll have a fun, stress-free Christmas season in your Canberra rental property.
Organise yourself before you start decorating
Go "list-crazy", having a list for virtually everything you need to do.
Before you start the heavy decorating and getting yourself ready for the wave of family and friends that are going to be visiting, make a list of what you need to do. As you go through the list, cross these tasks off so you know exactly what's left. As you get closer to the 25th, you'll probably come up with some extra things to do – simply add them to the list.
Go "list-crazy", having a list for virtually everything you need to do, including who you need to call and who you're sending letters to. This is going to work for some people, but not others. Try it out, though, because it might make your Christmas season preparation a whole lot less stressful.
Fake it until you make it
One of the most vital parts of any Christmas decorating is the tree. Many people love the look and smell of a traditional fir tree, although there are now plenty of modern options as well. You can get smaller, LED trees that light up and rotate, or you can get metal trees that are simply glittery cones. Whatever you like the look of, go for it. It's your home, after all.
If you're worried about damaging your rental property, then a fake tree is the best option. They're typically small and light, and don't even leave a mess behind. Perfect for anyone who dreads cleaning up after all the celebrations as well.
Nobody wants to be stuck cleaning up, pulling fir needles out of the carpet, once the celebrations are over.
There are so many great options out there for modern Christmas decorating – you just have to make sure you're organised about it all.
