Last Minute Christmas

December 25, 2009

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.
