It truly is the most wonderful time of year and although some families may be kicking back and relaxing in these last few days before Christmas, others are rushing around getting last minute gifts. If you are in the latter category, it may be safe to assume you’ve fallen behind on your holiday decorating. However, there is still time to get it together. Here are the top three best ways to get ready for the festivities.

1. Get the tree
The best way to instantly get in the holiday spirit is to put up the family Christmas tree. Once you get the beautiful tree in the home you’ll be excited to decorate it with the help of your little ones. Keep them involved by having them string popcorn or cranberry strands to be strewn on the tree.

2. Get baking
Making cookies, cupcakes, pies and more is a common tradition for most families. Because of this, it may be helpful to start trying out a few new recipes with your kids to get their take on the various options. Put some holiday music on as well to really get you and everyone else excited.

3. Purchase Christmas flowers
If you still need a boost to get into the mood for celebrating, than you may benefit from purchasing a bouquet of Christmas flowers. A delightful arrangement like Teleflora’s Celebration Tree is sure to spread holiday cheer in your home. The mini “tree” is covered in white lilies and cushion mums along with white pine and noble fir branches.
