Christmas time: adding the final touches

With only two days to go till the morning of Christmas, there is still plenty of time to make a few adjustments before your guests arrive. But don’t let your inspiration get the better of you! Adding nature into your home as well as using simple decorative arrangements will help you on your way to a more festive and welcoming décor. Here are a few ideas on how to add a little Christmas buzz to your home, whilst remaining tasteful and elegant.

Let it shine

Christmas can never truly be complete without a little Christmas sparkle. You’ll find that adding candles to your dining table adds warmth and grace to the layout*. When dressing your mantelpiece with a minimalist’s touch, leave out the garland and add a little glitter with candlesticks. Use colours such as reds, subtle silvers & golds and shades of green, whilst setting aside the ivory candles.  Despite it being one of the easiest means of decoration, it remains one of the best ways to emanate that festive feel into your home.

Give a new purpose to your ornaments

Baubles don’t always have to be hung from your Christmas tree! You can also use them as a great centrepiece, neatly placed into a decorative bowl filled with natural leaves. This is an unusual display for many homes, as baubles are traditionally hung from anywhere possible. Therefore, showcasing your baubles in this contemporary style will also impress your guests to its originality.

Add a table runner

Very simple and traditional touch to a festive home is to include a table runner to your dining table, coffee table or console table. Combine a Christmas-themed/traditional table runner with complimenting/matching pillows for your sofa.


With Christmas almost here these simple additions are quick and easy buys to help you get that festive look in the nick of time.
