TRENDS AND STYLING TIPS FOR THE SEASON

Marvellous centre pieces to impress your guests

When you’re setting a table you want it to be special – while still enabling guests to freely converse with one another. Play with heights but ensure that guests can still maintain eye line with those opposite. If you’re planning a big centrepiece, keep it low and centred. It can still make impact with density and colour.

Deck the halls for a festive fireplace

For a simple touch to dress up your fire place or living room dresser, add a metallic accent while creating an eye catching feature. Stockings and Christmas trees are always fun and add character to your home.

Table settings to inspire your Christmas dinner

Choose a colour palette and keep it simple. Gold accents will elevate the table setting and make it feel really special. For a striking pops of colour, you can’t go past festive red. A little goes a long way, so a splash here and there. Whether it’s via a napkin, bauble or plaid runner, it will do the trick to up the nostalgic feels for Christmas.

How to celebrate traditions with personal touches

When celebrating Christmas, it's an opportunity to add special details that help to make it a memorable time with the family. This can be such as a handwritten place card, personalised menu or even a small gift for your guests.

O Christmas tree, luxe Christmas tree styling

When dressing your Christmas tree, pick a theme and stick to it. Trends for the festive season are adding a little bit of luxe and glamour with traditional accents. Plus, for an extra twinkly Christmas tree, you cannot go past fairy lights. They make any tree magical!
