“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”

The festive season is just around the corner, and there is no better way to celebrate than with family and friends in your luxury home! Transform your place into a magical festive castle in McAllen, Edinburg, or wherever you are to celebrate and enjoy this wonderful festive season. Here are some ideas to bring the enchantment of the festive season right into your home.

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.”

Although it is unlikely to get snow in Rio Grande Valley, you can start with the magic in your garden. Clear up leaves and debris from fall and illuminate the flower beds with solar lights in festive red and green colors. Fairy lights in a tree or a topiary can decorate the unique nooks and corners. Make an oversized natural wreath with beautiful yellow, orange, and brown twigs and leaves, and place it in a focal place to enthral your visitors walking through your garden. Have a wreath on the entrance and a welcome mat to invite them from the winter chill into your exquisite luxury home. Be ready to entertain your snowbird friends who want to spend their December holidays in the Sun Belt.

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but inside, it’s so delightful!”

That first step into your home is that step into the winter wonderland. When visitors enter your house, a majestic Christmas tree with ornaments, tinsel, lights, and a bright star will add that dramatic view. Place it where you have the space to make that statement, whether in the foyer or cozy living room. Use your interior to determine the ideal placement of the tree. Add a special touch by decorating with unique handmade ornaments or decorations that your guests can stop to observe the beauty.

“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All the Way…”

Set the mood with background Christmas playlists and holiday favorite songs, or have the songs available on the piano for the guests to join in a sing-along. Ensure to stock your pantry well in advance to serve delicious treats available for guests. Consider an open house-style party when your friends and family can drop in anytime, and you get to see them all during the festive season. Invite them and set times and dates when they can drop in. Have stations with eggnog or hot chocolate, homemade mulled wine, Christmas cookies, and any traditional treats you can prepare beforehand.

Christmas Decoration on the Door

“Who is knocking at my roots? Who is singing at my door?”

Prepare your house to accommodate your guests comfortably. Declutter, donate, store or throw away unwanted items, toys, and clothing to open space. Fix leaking faucets and shutters that don’t close properly. Add extra cushions in front of the fireplace for seating and have a kids’ corner where little ones make decorations or color pictures. Remember the washrooms and place decorative soap in the same Christmas colors. Clear out your fridge and freezer, prepare dishes in advance to freeze, and have them available for overnight guests. Heat your home to provide comfort to all guests.

“Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane… “

Don’t forget the decorations – inside and outside! Pull out your decorations in advance and check your fairy lights are in working order. Have personalized stockings or one for guests with candies and chocolates. Let the natural elements of your luxury home shine through. Use the mantel as the centerpiece of holiday decorations. Arrange a stunning display of candles, garlands, and decorative figures.

“I’ll be coming home for Christmas.”

If you’re leaving for a true White Christmas, ensure your house is safe and secure on your return. Arrange with the neighbor to collect post and newspapers, water plants, and feed pets. Unplug and switch off unnecessary appliances, and turn on pre-programmed or motion-censored lights and alarms.

Preparing your luxury home for the holidays starts well in advance. Make lists, plan, and check everything around and inside the house to be efficient and working. Do minor repairs and massive decorations! Incorporate cherished holiday traditions as part of your celebrations. Make your luxury home a beacon of warmth, cheer, and good memories for family and friends!
