Although it is the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas can also be quite a stressful time for families.  

Luckily, Campion Homes are perfectly designed for Christmas entertaining, meaning there is one less thing to worry about during the festive period. In this blog, we explain why Campion Homes make entertaining easy and offer some tips on how to make your new build truly magical this Christmas.  

 

Easy entertaining  

 

Every Campion home is designed with modern living in mind. With lots of choice between the varying different house types, all offer spacious, open plan living areas to accommodate all of the family around the table. 

Great kitchens are made with not just one cook in mind, so plenty of space to share the task of Christmas dinner! Comfortable lounges and perfect to unwrap all those brilliant little gifts from under the tree and of course fibre broadband ensures that no gadget is left without instant connectivity - all of this comes as standard. Not forgetting the option to personalise your home in our Choices Suite, we help your new house to truly become a home. 

Many of our homes also come with an open plan living and kitchen space, with feature pocket doors that enable the flexibility to create a sense of privacy while retaining the open plan feel. 

This flexibility is invaluable when entertaining at Christmas time, where you might want the space for everyone to flow around the room during the day, while you can close the partition as night draws in to create a cosy and warm space to relax in.  

 

 

Creating that festive feeling 
 

Decorating your home is one of the best things about the festive season. Creating a cosy Christmas atmosphere is so comforting and also a fun activity to get the whole family involved in.  

While there are some fabulous shop-bought decorations out there, remember there are also lots of pieces you can create yourself at home – for example, collecting natural materials like pine branches and pine cones to create a gorgeous wreath or garland to entwine around your new stair handrail - why not add some LED lights to bring some sparkle? There’s also always the family favourite activity of making hand-decorated paper chains that the kids will love to lend a helping hand with. 

For shop-bought, we love these classic Scottish-themed decorations from National Galleries Scotland, which are all hand made. For a dramatic pre-made Christmas wreath, you can’t go wrong with Narcissus Flowers stunning creations.  

Finding the right scent, whether from candles, wax melts or reed diffusers, can also make all the difference when creating that festive feeling – we personally love scents of gingerbread spice, pine forests and vanilla cookies for Christmas. The Botanical Candlemaker has some amazing natural festive scents made with essential oils. 

 

Prioritise ‘me-time’ 

 

Of course, Christmas entertaining can leave you feeling frazzled, so it’s important to factor in some ‘me-time’ so that you can wind down once the festivities are over.  

Campion Homes focus on open-plan spaces, bringing people together, yet ensuring that everyone can have their own space if need be. This means you can relax on the sofa with a good book and cup of tea while your other half prepares dinner with the kids, or you can hang out in the kitchen while playtime happens in the living area.  

Our homes also have a focus on gorgeous bathroom spaces which you can escape to for an evening of pampering. Spacious bathrooms, including en suites and jack and jill bathrooms in many of our properties, ensure there is ample room to stretch out in the bath and gift yourself a home spa day!
