The holiday season is once again upon us, meaning it’s officially time to turn your Wilkinson home into a festive winter wonderland. As one of the leading homebuilders in Delaware, Wilkinson Homes understands the importance of creating a warm and inviting space for your family and friends to gather this holiday season, so read on for some of our favorite tips to prepare your new home in Delaware for the holidays. 

Exterior elegance

As Delaware homebuilders, our team at Wilkinson Homes takes pride in crafting homes that stand out, no matter which new home community you live in, providing the perfect canvas for your holiday decorations. Start your holiday transformation by giving your front entrance a warm and inviting feel by adding a beautiful wreath to the front door, lining your walkway with lights or incorporating some seasonal greenery or elements such as pinecones and holly throughout the space to create a welcoming atmosphere.  

Warm and cozy interiors

The holiday season is all about spending time with your loved ones, so as you begin decorating inside your Wilkinson home, you’ll want to focus on creating a cozy ambiance. Many of our incredible new homes in Delaware boast open-concept living spaces, providing the ideal setting for all of your holiday festivities. Invest in soft throws and pillows in rich, warm colors to make your living spaces inviting, arrange your furniture to create inviting conversation areas and turn your fireplace into a focal point of your holiday decor by adding garland and hanging all of your stockings. 

Delightful dining

As you prepare to host your holiday gatherings, you’ll also want to pay special attention to your dining area, and you can start by considering your table settings. Elegant and thoughtfully arranged tableware can add a touch of sophistication to your holiday parties, and choosing festive colors such as deep reds, greens or golds truly resonates with the holiday spirit. Coordinated placemats, napkins and table runners can tie the entire setting together, but don’t forget to add a centerpiece—whether it’s a traditional holiday arrangement or a stylish display that reflects your personal taste. Ambient lighting is another crucial element that can transform your dining area, so choose lighting fixtures that complement your holiday theme, whether it’s twinkling lights, elegant chandeliers or warm candlelight. The right lighting can create a cozy and intimate ambiance, setting the stage for memorable moments with your loved ones. 

Inviting guest rooms

If you have any overnight guests, ensuring their stay is comfortable needs to go beyond the basics, and a little extra effort throughout those rooms can make their stay truly memorable. First, you’ll want to make sure that all of your guest rooms have extra blankets and pillows, and if you really want to go above and beyond, adding thoughtful touches like placing a selection of teas, snacks or a small basket of travel-sized toiletries in the room can make your guests truly feel at home. Moreover, transforming your guest rooms into festive retreats with holiday throw pillows and blankets or even a small Christmas tree in the corner is a simple way to keep the holiday spirit present throughout your entire home.
