You spent weeks planning the menu, guests, fighting for offers in crowded markets, both online and offline. Now check out
LUXAIRE’s 5 easy ways to get Festive tonight (even if you don’t celebrate it).
Fill your candle votives with something special before placing the tea light – beads, Indian spices, dried potpourri or shells even! Fill mason jars or clear vases with dried leaves or pinecones. Tie them with ribbons to add a festive bling.
If you don’t have small planters with succulents inside or green thumbs in your home, pluck a few springs from your garden or the local florist to spread evenly on a fresh brightly colored table runner. Else, use a few crochet cloths as a quick fix using small porcelain or quirky objects like conversation starters. You can also use small flower or fruit shaped fairy lights across the table.
Poke some oranges or citrus fruits with the cloves or small cinnamon bits to create a Christmas-sy smell immediately.
If your husband has burnt the turkey or chicken, this may help to divert your guests attention!
Show it with Red or Gold!
You may practise your DIY skills if you’ve planned earlier. Lay your gold décor along a table runner or as a candle/vase apart from the tree accessories. A good idea is using craft items like buttons, ribbons, woollens & place them strategically on wreaths or socks on the fireplace, tree or just the front door.
If all else fails, serve red and gold in your food – fancy gold dust icing on your fave red velvet cupcake anyone?
