Christmas for Kids

 Christmas presents under the tree

Although known universally as one of the most sacred and meaningful holidays on the social calendar, Christmas also is known as the ultimate holiday for kids; the time when their young minds—and hearts—brim with the enchantments of Yuletide wonder.

 

Make this Christmas a memorable one for the youngest members of your family; not only by showering them with their choice of gifts and toys, but by morphing your home into a winter wonderland that will endlessly enchant them.

 

  • Turn your front lawn into a winter wonderland. Build festive snow people with your children, allowing them to view their handiwork for the duration of the holiday season. Also fill the yard with sculptures and inflatables that depict everything from elves to candy canes, additional snowmen to angels dressed in full ethereal regalia. A full and glorious Nativity scene is always nice for traditional families, while all families might enjoy posting a scene that depicts Santa at the sleigh—a team of beaming reindeer leading the way.
  • Deck the halls of your home—most literally. From the moment they walk through the front door of your house throughout the holiday season, all guests should marvel at the vision of scarlet red ribbons, a blazing fireplace, and strands of crisp emerald holly. Your own children will be equally impressed at the sight of faux snow scattered on the ground, elf and nutcracker dolls and figurines standing guard over their presents, and the placement of whimsical ‘Captivity’ scenes on a buffet or end table. And, of course, Christmas lights every hue of the rainbow should be hung throughout the home.
  • Decorate a kid-friendly Christmas tree. Children will delight at the sight of gingerbread ornaments, whimsical toy soldiers, and miniature versions of Yuletide idols like Santa Claus. Further amaze them with portrait ornaments that bear their own photos, as well as with ornaments that depict modern childhood heroes that range from Mickey and Minnie Mouse to the whimsical, decidedly animated stars of Shrek and Toy Story.

Turn Your Christmas Tree into a Winter Wonderland

The placement of a single Christmas tree in a home can do much to set the mood for the holiday season; causing all who behold the tree to think of Yuletide seasons past and present, and to marvel at the vision of a fully decorated vision of Christmas joy.

So when you put up your Christmas tree this year, be sure to adorn and decorate this tree in a manner that will bring forth its beauty, grandeur and beautiful sentimentality.

  1. Choose a healthy and eye-catching tree. You don’t want to choose a Yuletide tree that will die before the big day; this is decidedly not conducive to a joyous and gleeful holiday! You also don’t want to choose a tree that sheds its leaves or needles excessively, or whose color seems to fade long before its time.
  2. Choose a beautiful and vibrant tree topper. Whether it is a golden or crystalline star or a lovely ethereal angel, the ornamental piece that goes at the top of the tree is one of the first things that people notice when they see the decorated tree.
  3. Choose ornaments that shine in their ebullience. Ornament balls that glitter in glorious shades of silver, scarlet, emerald and gold, as well as silken pink and lavender spheres and shiny crystalline stars, are just a few of the magnificent accents that distinguish a glorious Christmas tree.
  4. Choose ornaments that glow in their personal value. Family members are sure to appreciate angels, gingerbread men, stars or balls that bear their names; as well as picture ornaments that bear family photos in their frames.
  5. Wrap it all up. Enshroud your tree with lines of golden garland or ribbons of scarlet and gold; wrapping the gift of the Christmas tree for everyone to behold.
  6. Just add lights. Whether you adorn the tree’s branches with electric candles or with strings of absolutely brilliant luminaries, be sure to make your Christmas tree shine throughout the holiday season.

Dressing the Flower Girl

When you feature a flower girl in your wedding ceremony, you want her to reflect the spirit of innocence, radiance and peace of the event itself; while adding an element of drop dead cuteness that will make this precious little girl a hit with the gathered crowd.

In order to meet this goal, you face several choices and options in dressing the flower girl:

  • Choose a dress that mirrors the bride’s gown. Every flower girl will shine in a gown of ivory white lace, herself carrying a bouquet of ebullient florals that she’ll dispense down the length of the aisle. Her angelic couture could set the mood for the rest of the ceremony.
  • Choose a dress that reflects the color scheme of the wedding. Whether your color scheme shines in classic accents of pink and ivory, or resounds with more modern hints of scarlet or lavender—and whether your overall style reflects a Victorian, Renaissance, or contemporary style—your flower girl could stand as a walking representation of your décor.
  • Choose a dress with a floral design. This might seem like a proverbial no brainer to many wedding planners; indeed, when the crowd sees the little girl in the floral print dress, they will automatically guess her role in the wedding. In addition, her beautiful, elegant gown is sure to lend itself to the overall look and mood of the ceremony.
  • Choose a floral headpiece. Regardless of the color or design of the flower girl’s dress, it always pays to ‘say it with flowers’ when it comes to the headpiece. A floral headpiece is a flawless finishing touch for any flower girl wedding costume; just make sure that the hue of the florals coincides with the color and design of the dress—and, of course, of the bountiful petals that define and symbolize her role in the wedding.

Growing the Flower Girl

So you’ve selected the very lucky young lady who will serve as the flower girl in your much anticipated wedding ceremony. She is bound to be honored, excited…and, in all probability, scared out of her wits.

…well, perhaps that’s an understatement. The fact is, though, that this is a young child who faces the task of carrying off a substantial part of the wedding ceremony; and in the presence of dozens or perhaps hundreds of watching adults. She may be tense and bashful at this prospect, or even experiencing anxiety at what may seem—at least in a child’s eyes—to be a daunting role.

Here are a few ideas on how to grow the flower girl:

Reassure your flower girl that absolute perfection is not part of the job description. Tell her that you yourself might mess up during the ceremony; and that, in all likelihood, the gathered crowd will laugh along with you at any minor mess ups and proceed with the ceremony.

Remind your flower girl that the occasion of your wedding is a fun family event. Encourage her to enjoy herself and look forward to the big day.

Be sure to explain thoroughly to your flower girl the duties and responsibilities associated with her role in the wedding. Depending on her age and maturity level, you may have to repeat these instructions several times; just be sure that she understands exactly what will be expected of her throughout the course of the ceremony.

Practice, practice, practice. Everyone feels more comfortable about a job, task or duty if they are able to practice it ahead of time; and even before the wedding rehearsal, you might want to run the flower girl through the paces of her wedding day duties. Encourage her to behave, smile, have fun, and spread joy and happiness along with the flower petals!
