So, today, I thought I'd write about welcoming guests into your home. By now most of us have got our decorations up but there are a few more things that we can do around the home to make it even more Christmassy and welcoming to whosoever might pop by, announced or not.
|A warm winter welcome|
|Festive front door|
|Funky, bright Pom Pom wreath The Crafty Minx|
|Modern festive hallway|
|Contemporary vintage style entrance|
Make space - even with just a few guests in your home, space soon starts to become more limited, so before they arrive, clear away the clutter and make lots of surface space available for guests to place glasses and plates on. Use trays, tablecloths and pretty napkins to cover surfaces (the risk of spillage always increases after a few drinks!)
|IKEA Barbar snowflake tray|
|Preedy silver leaf drinks trolley|
Twinkle, shine and shimmer - not just you as host but the room(s) that you are entertaining in. Lighting is key to setting the scene so be sure to have intimate mood lighting by having plenty candles lit, fairy lights twinkling and table lamps glowing.
|Silver, white & some of favourite scents|
|Perfect for Christmas but also great all year round|
Ok, so party anyone?!
