Traditionally decorated Chrismas tree
Nothing adds festive magic like a Christmas tree festooned with traditional decorations. Deck your tree with sparkling modern baubles and timeless twinkling fairy lights, then ensure a super-festive spirit with a scattering of sequined cushions and flickering candlelight.
Modern stacking advent calendar
Give kids a treat with a personalised homemade advent calendar, that’s better than a cardboard cutout. Recycle used food tins (after rinsing) by spraypainting them white and numbering them from 1 to 25. Line each with a brightly coloured tissue paper and, of course, a treat, then stack them up on a stable tabletop. Let the Christmas countdown commence…
Simple Christmas dining decorations
Want to keep things really simple, but still stylish at your Christmas dining table? Hang a sparkling two-dimensional bauble or tree decoration on the back of each dining chair – easy, instant, but still festive.
Ribbon-tied Christmas cutlery
There’s no need to overcomplicate Christmas dinner with fussy settings – sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Tie together your cutlery with lengths of slim, ice-blue ribbon for a polished (and organised) dining table detail.
Personalised table place settings
Add kitsch fun to the Christmas table settings – simply adapt sparkly reindeer baubles using a handwritten gift tag, tied with a holly-red bow, to make personalised place holders. See? Christmas entertaining needn’t be complex.
Hang stockings without a fireplace
No fireplace? No problem. Simply use two firmly attached lengths of ribbon to hang a slender, white-painted branch against a wall, and it’s all set for your Christmas stockings. The eternally stylish Mr Claus will be very impressed with this modern decorating solution.
