Fes­tive fi­esta

Your Home and Garden - - Your Style -

Bright and bold hues in a mix of ma­te­ri­als will make for a fun fam­ily cel­e­bra­tion. More is def­i­nitely mer­rier when it comes to this look – hang baubles from a tree, put the Christ­mas stock­ings on show, add fresh flow­ers to the ta­ble and mix and match colours and tex­tures.

Em­brace the sum­mer sea­son with bright colours and bold pat­terns on out­door cush­ions, rugs and din­ner­ware. Cre­ate a chill-out zone with a bright blan­ket and some cush­ions for af­ter­noon laz­ing af­ter the Christ­mas feast.

Presents wrapped in sim­ple craft pa­per can be livened up with colour­ful rib­bons. Re­cy­cled glass jars with rib­bon tied around them will make cute vases. Use bright fab­ric or wrap­ping pa­per as trim for the ta­ble.

If there’s a shady spot in your gar­den, adorn the area with baubles as this will be a great area for present open­ing. Don’t for­get fairy lights, but make sure they are wa­ter­proof.
