Countdown

Make your own advent calendar using small decorations. Hang them against your wall with pretty ribbons, and attach printed numbers with small pegs.

Dressed table

Create height in the middle of your table with candles, baubles and cut glass. Mix gold, copper and silver and set them off against a white background. Hang pinwheels and paper lanterns from your ceiling with ribbons – keeping them clear of the candles, of course!

Festive setting

Layer white plates with touches of silver for a glamorous table. When dressing your table in shades of white, use different textures to add interest. Place Christmas tree decorations on the table, too, adding subtle splashes of colour.

A wreath for every room

A wreath on your front door gives a very festive welcome.

Good idea

Wind fairy lights around a wire heart and hang it on your wall, or place on the floor.

Make a floral wreath by winding thin wire into a circle and then wrapping flowers around it.

Trinkets for your tree

Play around with different shapes and textures. Edible decorations such as star-shaped cookies will please the kids!
