“Christmas is a very special time for us, as it’s the time of year when we all come together as a family. Here’s how we love to celebrate this time of year.
1 If we are hosting Christmas we have a real Christmas tree, and we drink a glass of champagne and decorate the tree together the weekend before Christmas.
2 We put the wreath on the front door and put up fairy lights on the front verandah.
3 I make an effort to wrap the presents in special paper and ribbon so they look gorgeous under the tree.
4 Our table is set with a white linen tablecloth and white cloth napkins, something sparkly, plus Christmas crackers and poppers.
5 I buy a potted hydrangea and decorate the house with gardenias and ivy from the garden.”
