It’s December! We can officially start playing Christmas songs in the office, wear Santa hats and drink eggnog. When you think Christmas, do you think cosying up by the fire? We love an open fire, bottle of wine and some gorgeous red and gold.
Birds and pinecones
Incorporate our little feathered friends and warming pinecones in to your floral display like these ones from The Fresh Flower & Gift Basket Company.
Bulbs don’t have to be for the tree
Be creative with your tree ornaments. If you hang bulbs on the tree then put them in a big vase instead to create a pretty table decoration.
Dress the fireplace
It is likely that your fireplace will be a core element to your festive display. Add flowers, hanging decorations and candles for a warm feel.
We live in Canada – there’s always snowflakes around. Pick up some gold sparkle flakes for a touch of colour and pizzazz.
Napkins and wine
Whether you are having guests over for appetizers or a cosy night in for two, then add a touch of glamour with a fabric napkin and a starburst napkin ring, like these from Pier 1 Imports. Add wine - it is the holidays after all!
