Tis’ the season for putting up the Christmas tree and decorating our home to help bring the holidays to life. While our favorite vintage Satan Clause figurines and traditional green garland enhance the joy of the season, your friends here at Griffin’s Floral Design, the best florist in Columbus, are sharing tips on how to bring more warmth, comfort, simplicity, connection, and mindfulness into your holidays with hygge. This Danish artform has evolved into a new way to celebrate the holidays in ways that warm our hearts and bring us closer to our loved ones.
Five Ways to Bring Home Holiday Hygge
Light Sweet Fragrant Candles
Lighting a candle serves many purposes, especially when creating a hygge environment. While the flame dances and flickers, or perhaps even create a subtle crackle or popping noise, its fragrance has the power to capture our attention. Hygge reminds us to be mindful and find delight in the smallest of moments, such as lighting a candle and enjoying its glow and scent.
Display Cozy Holiday Decor
Incorporating your personal style to create a unique holiday aesthetic that warms you from the inside out is hygge. You never need to replicate what you see online or in magazines to design a magnificent space where you will love spending time. From minimalist decor to a log cabin or rustic look and vintage holiday to a modern metallic atmosphere, there are so many directions to go in. However you decide to design your space to make it your own, try recruiting help from loved ones to create memories and perhaps a new tradition of decorating for the holidays together.
Admire Fresh Flowers
It is no question that flowers inspire us to be more present and mindful as we admire their alluring and captivating beauty and inhale their fresh, sweet fragrances. Winter flowers especially, with white and red blooms surrounded in a bed of lush greenery, wonderfully enhance our spaces through natural elements. Experience the hygge brought to you by these floral arrangements, whether you send one to loved ones or receive one of your own. Connecting with loved ones through the language of flowers is just another way to bring hygge into your holiday season.
Play Soft Seasonal Music
Once the scene is set, it is time to set the tone with mood music. No matter your taste in music, the winter and holiday season is sure to have something that speaks to you. You certainly don’t have to listen to Mariah Carey’s Christmas album on repeat to put holiday cheer in the air. Choose something that makes you feel good, makes you want to dance, or relaxes you and eases away all tension.
Fill Your Home with Loved Ones
Spending this time of year with loved ones and enjoying the company of friends and family will look different to each and every one of us. While some share laughs over dinner, others catch up over video chat. Some families will be creating new memories by the fireplace to the sounds of Christmas music, and others will establish new holiday traditions with friends that they can look forward to year after year. Whatever your quality time with loved ones looks like this holiday season, let it light you up with hygge.
Whether you are hosting holiday festivities, entertaining guests, or enjoying quiet nights by the fire, filling your home with hygge is sure to make this year one of the best yet. Don’t forget to scout out the perfect winter flowers from the area’s best flower shop, Griffin’s Floral Design, for the excellent finishing touches.
