For those dreaming of a traditional white Christmas complete with eggnog, mistletoe and Christmas carols, you’ll need to find decorations that can create a wintry Christmas feel. Instant snow powder, along with a white snow covered Christmas tree, a light up snowflake and a traditional looking Saint Nicholas figure will create that chilly yuletide cheer you’re after. Finish your masterpiece with a red and white table runner and festive centrepieces. And if your guests are retiring to the lounge room for mulled wine and mince pies, throw some Christmas cushions around for the finishing touch.

If you’re set to impress this Christmas with an elegant lunch spread then you’re going to want the trimmings to match. Nothing will take away from your three course lunch than gaudy decorations that don’t suit your theme; so keep it minimal and understated for a sophisticated feel. Greet your guests with an elegant side table decoration on entry and decorate the dining table with simple runners, an ornate Christmas star and some black stag heads. Finish off with a few crackle ball lights, baubles and tinsel and you’re good to go.
