Last Minute Christmas

Christmas decorated mantlepiece

 If you’ve just finally gotten that Christmas spirit, here are some last minute decorating advice.

When choosing the christmas tree, choose one with a tree with a good shape, dense branches and pliable needles.

December’s edition of House and Garden New Zealand suggests choosing one colour and combine it with white and silver to create a multi-layered festive feel in your home.

Once you’ve chosen your colour theme, carry it through into different areas throughout the house. Put a cluster of baubles on the mantlepiece, hang small decorations off door knobs, attach sparkly, light-catching decorations to the window frame. Gather ideas for things you can make yourself, such as the stencilled patterns and lacy  white paper cut-outs. A welcoming wreath on the door, the fresh flowers on the table – all following the same colour theme – add the finishing touch.
