Whether you will be kicking back with board games or enjoying mince pies with a few glasses of mulled wine, your kitchen space or dining area will be working hard to play host to plenty of festive gatherings this year. Discover our top tips for hosting with confidence this year, whilst bringing the festive cheer…
A warm welcome
Friendly lighting that will suit your entertaining needs. Are you hunkering down for a cosy evening watching Christmas movies? Or hosting nearest and dearest for festive get-togethers? Lighting sets the tone for the evening ahead, with light and shadow creating the perfect atmosphere. For spaces that will accommodate plenty of lively yuletide celebrations, opt for a fun, dynamic display of light whereas dining spaces that will host cosy cups of hot chocolate and board games will require calming, uninterrupted lighting.
Flex your green thumb by adding a homegrown centrepiece to your hosting space. Bringing the outside inside will help create a comforting environment to put any anxieties at ease – without having to brave the winter weather! Handy herbs are a great addition to kitchen spaces as they will create a tasty (and impressive) addition to home cooked meals. Low maintenance houseplants are a welcome addition to homes during the winter as they don’t require much care, but still look stunning.
Leave your guests talking about your unique pieces - even at next year’s Christmas party! Clever, versatile pieces are essential for hosting as they allow you to tailor your space to suit your festive needs. From statement storage to multifunctional furniture, impress your nearest and dearest with timeless designs that suit any festive gathering.
