Meet the mood-setters
Once you’ve ticked off the practical bits, consider the sensory appeal of your set up. Seasonal scents like cinnamon, orange blossom and frankincense can be so evocative come Christmas. Try arranging metallic votives with garlands, baubles and candlesticks for a high-impact festive display – just don’t forget to leave matches. Nothing beats candlelight, but festive fairy lights come a close second and will wow little guests.
More mood-setting ideas
- Swap spring-fresh flowers for a vase filled with winter foliage like eucalyptus, fir or mistletoe. Feeling creative? Add some colour with red winter berries, pinecones, feathers - whatever you fancy.
- For quieter moments amongst the merriment, a little bedside reading will prove a thoughtful touch. Keep a stack of your most interesting hardbacks handy on a bedside table or shelf.
