To start, let's talk about the concept of Thrill, Fill and Spill. What is Thrill, Fill and Spill? This is is the MacKenzie-Childs concept of decorating your home for Christmas, this could be for the table, the hallway or your Christmas tree. Thrill is the WOW factor, this could be your tree topper or a beautiful Centerpiece. It's fun, it's playful and it's sure to stand out, your guests are sure to be mesmerized! Fill is the process of filling in the gaps, this could be with candles, glass ornaments or ribbon! Be creative when you are filling a space, take your time, and you will be sure to get good results! Your home is sure to feel luxurious. Spill is the process of adding products that will overflow the space. This could be with swirl picks, extra ribbon or additional MacKenzie-Childs Christmas Decor!

Now you know how to decorate your home with Thrill, Fill and Spill, we will now show you how to decorate different areas of your home!

The Hall/Front Door -

When decorating your front door, a must in our opinion is a Wreath. When choosing a wreath for this blog, we had to choose the Farmhouse Wreath. An exciting feature of the 2022 wreaths is the addition of battery-operated LED lights. These are sure to add a warm glow to your door. Why not team the wreath with a Farmhouse Trophy Resting Deer? If you have a protected porch or room in your hall, then this is the piece for you! This stunning MacKenzie-Childs deer is sure to add a fresh and festive touch to your home. Once inside, why not add a garland to your bannister? You will be sure to deck the halls with the Farmhouse Star Garland! This simple garland is sure to add a luxurious touch to your decorations, alternatively, why not try the Christmas Magic 1" Ribbon to add colour to your hall?

The Table -

Make your friends envious of your table decor, we have everything from placemats to napkins so you will be sure to find something. Taking into account the process of Thrill, Fill, Spill, why not consider the table dressing with a stunning centrepiece, our top choice would be the Farmhouse Triple Candle Centerpiece. We chose this particular centerpiece as it can be teamed with the Courtly Check Flicker Candles to create an ambient glow for your dinner party. Next, add some colour to your table with the Holly Holiday Beaded Placemat. These will add texture to your table and will protect the surface from any spills or heat. Next, add height to the table with the Check Dinner Candles - Black & Ivory - Set of 2. Adding height to your table will elevate the sophistication. Never leave the candles burning unattended. Finish off the table by adding touches like ribbon, napkins or a Jolly Holiday Illuminated Tree. Adding finishing touches are sure to make your table stand out! Don't forget, MacKenzie-Childs Christmas Décor doesn't just have to be for your tree!

The Tree -

Some may consider this to be the most important part of the Holiday decoration. When decorating your tree, it is important to layer decorations to create a fuller effect. Don't forget to fluff out your branches if you're using an artificial tree, we know it's a tedious job but it's always worth it! Start by adding lights to make your Christmas tree glow. Next, from the bottom and work up, fill up spaces by adding glass ornaments such as the Golden Hour Glass Ball Ornaments - Set of 6 or the Fairy Dust Glass Ball Ornaments - Set of 6, these decorations will start to add colour to the tree, while also giving it a luxurious feel. Next, add personalised or novelty glass ornaments like the Glass Ornament - Greeter Snowman. MacKenzie-Childs have a range of Glass Ornaments to help you celebrate the year or commemorate a special event. Finish off your tree with ribbon, this adds a classier touch to your tree compared to tinsel. We would recommend using Courtly Regal 4" Ribbon - Red. This Ribbon can be used again and again. Its timeless design will never go out of fashion.

MacKenzie-Childs Christmas décor is timeless and we believe it can be used again and again to create a magical feel every Holiday.
