Set­ting the scene

It’s be­gin­ning to look a lot like Christ­mas – and the log­i­cal place to start is at your front door!

Style at Home (UK) - - Style Made Simple -

Christ­mas starts when guests knock on your door, so cre­ate a warm wel­come with a se­lec­tion of out­door lanterns and a door wreath. en­sure your hall­way con­tin­ues the theme – ban­is­ters dec­o­rated with pretty gar­lands and fairy lights al­ways look chic. or if you fancy try­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent, dec­o­rate a con­sole or side ta­ble in­stead, fes­toon­ing it with baubles, sea­sonal or­na­ments and twin­kling can­dle­light. if your en­try­way is small, you can still in­cor­po­rate lit­tle touches – try swap­ping your stan­dard door­mat for a fes­tive de­sign, or hang gar­lands across your ceil­ing.

Mak­ing scents

Don’t for­get the other senses when it comes to cre­at­ing a fes­tive wel­come. Cre­ate fra­grant col­lec­tions of sea­sonal fo­liage, burn scented can­dles, or have some­thing yummy bak­ing in the oven to fill your guests with the Christ­mas spirit.
