How to Bring the Holidays to Your Vacation Villa
It doesn’t matter whether you’re eight or eighty; Christmas decorations put a smile on anybody’s face. You may go all out with the decorations at home, but if you’re going to be staying at one of the vacation villas in Kissimmee FL this Christmas, it can be a bit more difficult to get into the holiday spirit. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to add some festive charm to your vacation spot, without doing any damage.
The Christmas tree is the first thing that usually goes up, but that’s not really a viable option, even in the most spacious of vacation villas. However, if you don’t mind scaling down in size, there are plenty of cute table-top-size artificial Christmas trees available. Take along a few favorite decorations, or better yet, buy a few Florida-themed Christmas decorations for the tree and they can become annual memories of your Florida Christmas vacation.
Even if you don’t go with a small tree, there are still plenty of ways to add decorations that won’t damage the walls and furnishings. Static window decals are a fun way to add some charm to your rooms, or you can drape artificial garlands along the curtains, furniture, or artwork. Add some Santa hats to chairs, tabletops, and even the TV for a quick, lightweight touch of festive fun that doesn’t require nails, hooks or even potentially damaging tape.
Candles may seem like a relatively innocuous decoration, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, so go with the artificial candles. Fortunately, there are plenty of different sizes, shapes, and styles that look beautiful and festive and that don’t run the risk of setting off the fire alarms. Speaking of which, don’t be tempted to hang any decorations from the smoke detectors or sprinklers in your room. They may not work properly if you do.
One of the easiest and safest decorations — except for your waistline — is a bowl or plate of chocolates and cookies. Lots of chocolate makers carry a variety of treats wrapped especially for the holidays and you can set out a plate of specially decorated Christmas cookies for Santa and any guests. When you’re staying at one of the vacation villas in Kissimmee FL, like Fantasy World, you can even whip up a batch of your own favorite cookies or treats in their full-size, in-room kitchens.
If you’re going to be away from home this holiday season, think about the decorations that mean the most to you and see if there are easy ways to incorporate them into your vacation villa. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how far a few decorations go toward getting you into the Christmas spirit.
