The Table Setting

Make your Christmas extra cheerful with a table setting worthy of the season! Narrow down your choices with a theme and colour scheme. However you choose to style Christmas, make sure it’s fun and speaks to your design aesthetics. White, gold and silver can be a classic and elegant and subtle choice and can be reused for the years to come.

The Christmas Tree

You may want a tall tree but your space is limited so consider where the tree will be set up and take note of the ceiling height. Gather round the family and pick the best tree for your home! To get a cohesive look, choose beautiful ornaments that are in tune with the same colour scheme and theme.

Here are a few tips to make your tree-decorating easier:

  • Choose lights that complement your overall decorations – keep them simple so you can reuse them in the future

  • Add a touch of style with glass, metallic and marble ornaments

  • Create a pattern when placing ornaments and garlands to achieve a polished look

  • Be creative with unusual decor like feathers, flowers or with your own DIY projects

Christmas Day Festivities

The season bring families and friends together so why not host Christmas day in your home? Take advantage of the warmer weather with an Aussie barbecue filled with light summer salads, a variety of seafood and seasonal sides. Serve chilled desserts such as Christmas trifle or Pavlova with berries and top it off with iced teas, summer juices and fruity cocktails. Then celebrate the day away in colourful outdoor furniture!

Also try stove-top simmers to make your home feel and smell more like Christmas! To get the cosy feeling when guests step foot into your home, A Beautiful Mess recommends to add to a pot with water orange and lemon slices, fresh cranberries, two cinnamon sticks and a tablespoon of cloves. Let it simmer on the stove for instant Christmas feels!

Don’t forget to enjoy yourself and not get overwhelmed with the preparations. If you’re having fun, your guests will be too.

Gift-giving

Receiving and opening Christmas gifts are one of the highlights of this time but wrapping presents can be a highlight in itself as well. Get your creative juices flowing with these easy and stylish gift-wrapping ideas:

  • Get rustic with craft paper, pinecones and some twine.

  • Use maps, newspaper or even old wallpaper for a different patterned look. Pair these with solid colored ribbons.

  • Create new patterns by stamping plain gift wrappers with your own design.

  • Add special elements like yarn pom-poms, a button, a jingle bell or a small Christmas ornament to make your gift unique.

  • Don’t forget a nice Christmas tag to go with your present.

We hope that our tips may help you celebrate the season in style. May you have a wonderful Christmas from all of us at Retrojan!
