Twelve Ways to Christmas: #4

As hoteliers, restaurateurs, designers, mixology masters and all round foodie enthusiasts we would like to help you in creating a magical, fluster free Christmas to remember. Having hosted and cared for plenty of friends and family for almost a decade, we wanted to impart some festive tips and tricks on how to have a magical Christmas.

To help you create the perfect Christmas atmosphere, we caught up with our Guest Relations Manager, Laura to ask her for three tips on turning your home into a festive abode.

Tip 1: Go real

Christmas isn’t Christmas without the beautifully nostalgic smell of a real tree. If you cut the end of the stump off and place it in water for 24 hours when you get it home, then keep in a place you can water the needles will drop much later.

Tip 2: Cinnamon

It’s a simple yet effective decoration and really adds to the festive scent in your home (can you see a theme here). It’s easy, tie some pretty ribbon around cinnamon sticks in a bow and then use sewing thread to create a loop through the bow so you can hang on the tree.

Tip 3: Candle light

Christmas is all about getting cosy and staying out of the December weather. It really is the more the merrier, adding a lovely warm glow to your home for snug nights in.
