A help­ing hand with your home at Christ­mas time

Euroa Gazette - - HOME & GARDEN -

CHRIST­MAS time is near, only five weeks to go and now’s the time to start think­ing about all the food and dec­o­ra­tions that will en­com­pass your homes.

To have your home look­ing at “Christ­masy” as pos­si­ble, you’ll want to en­sure your tree has a prime spot and is dec­o­rated in some sim­ple tin­sel and even some candy canes.

Lo­cal busi­nesses around the shire will be mak­ing your lives eas­ier, so make sure you utilise their Christ­mas ideas and op­tions as much as pos­si­ble.

As for food, a sim­ple Christ­mas cake will of­ten do the trick to im­press your guests around the fes­tive sea­son, see recipe below.
