In cel­e­bra­tion of the life and po­etry of Robert Burns, Scot­land’s most fa­mous poet, we see his birth­day be­ing ap­plauded around the world with the renowned Burns Night sup­pers an­nu­ally, on or around Jan­uary 25 – the per­fect ex­cuse to gather round with friends and loved ones whether you are Scot­tish or not.

These evenings com­prise of feast­ing till your heart’s con­tent, tuck­ing in to Hag­gis, recit­ing Burns’s po­etry and rais­ing a glass or two (of whisky) in cel­e­bra­tion. So, if you’re plan­ning on host­ing this year’s fes­tiv­i­ties, make sure your home is ready to wel­come your guests in true Scot­tish style.

I find this time of year is still about keep­ing the home cosy and one way I like to achieve this is by in­cor­po­rat­ing the Skye check throw and cush­ion which works per­fectly when added to tra­di­tional up­hol­stery pieces like the Har­ris Tweed Vic­to­ria but­ton chair.

Dec­o­rate the home with this­tle and to en­hance the Scot­tish charm, why not tie tar­tan rib­bon around cut­lery, nap­kins or glass­ware?

The ad­di­tion of antler home­wares is an­other favourite. Choose the resin Wide Antler Chan­de­lier to add char­ac­ter and make a real style state­ment in the room.

Once your fam­ily and friends have ar­rived, toast the hag­gis and com­mem­o­rate Burns, by of­fer­ing guests tum­blers of their favourite Scot­tish tip­ple and copies of Burns’ po­etry to en­sure that your Burns Night cel­e­bra­tion has true High­land style.
