It’s all in the detail?It?s not always about a show stopping centre piece, often it is the softer, subtler finishing touches that make the biggest difference.? An antiqued gold tray for serving immediately adds an element of elegance.? Use LED lights, nestled amongst pine cones and dried fruits, inside hurricane lamps and add touches of magic throughout the house with large foxed glass baubles
Go for natural?Bring nature in using fresh foliage when possible to give your Christmas an authentic feeling and add a sense of depth to your decorating. When fresh isn?t practical,I adore The White Company?s Rosemary and Pinecone Garland, especially for sweeping down a stair case.? Add some eucalyptus and fairy lights to give it an added dimension.
The importance of scent?Use flowers and candles, spicy orange, fig, cinnamon and eucalyptus are firm favourites.? Pierce oranges with cloves and use your favourite ribbon to hang them on door handles. ?Wells spiced potpourri with orange cinnamon fragrance from One World is always nestled round some candles in my house, normally in the hallway, so people know Christmas has arrived as soon as they come in!
