As families gather round the hearth, relatives from distant shores and absent friends all come together to celebrate the joy of Christmas. The festive decorations whether antique heirlooms brought down from the attic, handmade ornaments or contemporary trimmings for a less traditional décor all create a focal point that gives life and colour to our home every season.
Choosing the right one is difficult especially when there is so much to choose from - beautiful wreathes made of fragrant greens, lights twinkling in a multitude of colours, ornaments glittering. A resplendent dining room, a glorious meal in a beautifully created décor are also part of the festive celebrations that add to the merriment, joy and cheer all around. From cookies to the Christmas tree, from the ornaments to the chocolates, there are a lot of ways to display your individual creativity.
