15 Stylish and Simple Christmas Ideas

15 Stylish & Simple Christmas Ideas via Adore Re Mi

We are already busy with family and work, and it's no wonder we stress so easily during the festive season having to buy presents, decorate the home and cook for the family! Ideally we would like to make everything look perfect and nice so I am giving you a heads start with 15 stylish and simple Christmas ideas you can use. Just remember the golden rule, keep it simple and easy!

I was trying to keep it to 12 ideas but there are so many I had to add another three.

I saw this simple idea and made it with neon coloured paper, grass green ribbon and wash tape. Kids will love to help out too!

How easy is this! I did this for my wedding using ribbon and craft glue, I wish wash tape was available 8 years ago!

You don't always have to buy Christmas themed wrapping paper. I always buy brown or white wrapping paper and dress it up with left over paper with ribbon or twine. Print out these cute labels via Tomfo

Beautifully wrapped and photo worthy. It would be ashamed to open them up.. Nah! You can use your signature colour to personalise it. via Boxwood Clippings


Although it might be messy with the glitter, it sure looks cute to make. Decorate your tree or use it as a present/gift label. via Creature Comforts

Martha Stewart, Holiday jars

Martha extends her holiday jar idea to make it look more effective using wire lights to light it up. You can do without the lighting and use the salt as the snow and an ornament. via Martha Stewart

This is such a great idea. Make the napkins your main feature on your table, this emits so much clutter on the table. I know because I get carried away decorating mine! How to fold instructions via Handimania

Watermelon Christmas trees

Our national summer fruit is the watermelon (we love mangoes but it's a little tricky to make shapes.) Use a shaped cookie cutter. The kids, and big kids too will devour it. found in What About Watermelon

      Hi Steph! Doesn’t the drink look yummy. I can’t wait to sit down and eat & drink (mocktails for me) with the family. No guilt here!
