One of the most exciting accents of planning a Christmas feast every year is dreaming up a theme and seeing that you’ve set the mood for a magical Christmas for all your guests. There’s no need to splurge a fortune to make the best impression; ‘simple’ is key to a presentable and welcoming table setting to dictate the mood for a beautiful soiree.
I’ve gone rather ‘birdy’ this year for that ‘summer garden Christmas’ without sacrificing the elegance of a sparkly yet ethereal and magical Christmas that’s well-loved in cooler climates. I’ve used a combination of traditional red, green and white with silver-gold-black accents.
The advantage of using the LED lit-branches omitted any real need for lit candles or tea lights and helped bring such a warmth and magic to the table despite my party being held in the afternoon.
