Adding Christmas cheer to your campsite
‘Tis the season to be jolly – and decorate your campsite. We’ve gathered three easy ways to add Christmas Cheer to your campsite to make sure Mr Claus spots your tent or annexe this Christmas.
Let there be light.
Beautiful lighting is the ultimate way to add a little extra love and Christmas cheer to your campsite. And don’t worry if you’re not pitched on a powered site – there’s plenty of battery and solar-powered selections to keep you glowing all season long. Choose between string lighting, festoon lighting and LED peg lighting, and whimsically wrap them around your tent or annexe’s opening, awnings and poles. An added bonus is you’ll easily be able to find your way home after that extra-festive barbecue a couple of sites down.
Reinvent the tree.
Artificial is so yesterday. Let your imagination run wild with fun ways to add a tree to your Christmas campsite. You could make your tent or annexe part of the ensemble, using an outline of lights and tinsel on one of the sides. Or, grab the family and go in search of fallen sticks and branches. You can work together to replant these in the ground, giving them a second life as a Christmas tree. Keep the natural look with a less is more approach with decorations. Pack a few of your favourites, including tinsel, baubles and a star, but be sure to secure these down so your tree remains a sustainable addition after the silly season.
Glamp it up.
Good news for those who want to go a little more Christmas campsite fancy this year – there’s a brilliant range of glamping accessories available to help you get your look. Begin with the blank canvas of a statement bell tent, then add festive fabulousness with printed boho cushions in Christmas shades, interior chandelier lighting (which could cleverly double as your Christmas tree) and Glasshouse candle in the ‘Night Before Christmas’ scent would really set off your chic surroundings.
