Firstly, and very high on my priority list, is lighting - especially if you are hosting something during the festive season. Even places that aren’t perfect and have all the bells and whistles, can look great with the right lighting.
It’s good to start at the beginning, the first point of contact when people arrive at your house; the front gate, the foot path, the garden or the front door.
Beautiful solar lights are available everywhere these days and you can use them to light up a tree, accentuate the foot path or highlight any architectural garden features you might have.
One of my favourites are white fairy or Christmas lights which can be used to created a magical wonderland in your garden, and again they come in Solar option. Festoon lights are another one of my favourites and instantly create a festive ambiance.
I also love these lanterns that throw a beautiful pattern and would add a magical touch to any space.
Clusters of lights or lanterns up a staircase are so gorgeous and what a great entry to a space!
Strings of battery-operated fairy lights are another great idea if you’re not a fan of real fire.
Retailers like Bunnings, Kmart, Target and BigW have a great range of lights to suite every need.
